We went to Barcelona to for two days at the start of our Mediterranean cruise. Colon Hotel was opposite the Barcelona Catherdral, walking distance of the Gothic quarter and a bit longer walk to the Picasso Museum. Quick cab ride to pier and and other attractions. We enjoyed our stay, rooms were large, clean, comfy and staff was friendly.

This hotel is a small, nice and clean hotel. I stayed here in August 2013. You know they call it a four star hotel but I don't agree. For instance they don't have facilities for you to print your e-tickets. There's no swimming pool and so on. Rooms are dated and need a painting job. This hotel is located in...
