“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

The hotel is in a great location and we found the staff to be very welcoming and friendly. If you do decide to stay here, it is definitely worth upgrading your room to one with a view of the cathedral. The view is absolutely wonderful. The rooms are very comfortable but we did think the breakfast could offer a better selection and the quality of the breads was disappointing. If we come back to Barcelona, we would stay here again but would just book room only rather than B&B. Overall, would definitely recommend the hotel. Great location in a fantastic city.

Booked a meduim priced room and requested a balcony and high floor, both of which we got. Room was large and light and airy, but the view was magnificent. Right across from the Gothic Cathedral. Room was not luxurious but quite nice, comfortable,with two chairs which we pulled in front of window to view the cathedral. Couldn't ask for a better location. Staff were helpful. Skipped breakfast (too expensive) but there are places around to pick up something. Would definitely recommend.

Hotel Colon is literally in the heart of the old city, in a pedestrian area, on the square just opposite the Cathedral of Saint Eulalia. The area is safe and clean full of street entairtainers. Our room was on the back side overlooking a back yard. It was clean and well maintained, really spacious with an equally spoasious ensuite bathroom which had a bathtub and a separate shower.The turn down service and the chocolate was a nice touch, albeit we would appreciate tea-coffee making facilities. Our friends had a Cathedral view room which was quite small even by European standards. The front desk personel is OK, albeit to my opinion a bit indifferent. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel because we thought was quite expensive considering that the area around the square is full of nice cafes and eateries. We also visited the near-by Saint Caterina's Market, a lively palce frequented by locals, where we had enjoyed our breakfast (fresh fruit juice, coffee, sandwiches, croissant etc) at a very reasonable price. One evening we had lunch at the hotel Restaurant. To my opinion waste of money. The atmosphere is quite OK but the food was nothing special and the prices high especially for a city like Barcelona which is full of all kind of restaurants.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for staying with us and for taking a few minutes of your time to write about your experience in our hotel and share it with other travelers.
Sorry to hear that our restaurant didn’t live up to you expectations. Although we offer a great experience for a competitive value, we absolutely agree with you that the gastronomic side of Barcelona is one to explore. In addition to all the details of your review, we'd like to add that our hotel is located in a privileged place of Barcelona allowing to our clients to get to the Rambla street, to the Barceloneta beach, the Gothic quarter as well as the metro station which great connections virtually everywhere in the city.
We're looking forward to seeing you again next time you are in town!..
Best regards,
Hotel Colón, Barcelona

Second leg of our Europe trip. Arrived here from Paris and was blown away by our room 604 with enormous terrace overlooking the cathedral.

Staff excellent,breakfast very good with espresso machine and fesh squeezed orange juice.

The location couldn't be better and was very impressed with the whole experience.

Really enjoyed having beers / coffees at the tables outside this hotel which face the cathedral across the square.

Really nice spot to relax in the sun.

It's also about 50 metres down from a great taps spot (Bilbaos)

A note of caution - some bum tried to snatch my phone from the table whilst we were sat. I was too quick (and big) for him.
