The bed was large and comfortable. The bathroom was also a reasonable size although the shower was over the bath. There was a... More

Planned a last minute getaway with mum and it was great. The location is very central in the gothic quarter. You're right next to the Barcelona Cathedral and plenty of restaurants/cafes close by. The streets all around have markets and boutique shops/bars/restaurants and you're about 5mins walk to La Rambla. The hotel is beautiful and staff extremely helpful and friendly.... More

This hotel impresses on all fronts. Its location directly across from Cathedral Barcelona provides for lively entertainment in the square and easy access to the colorful, winding streets of the Barri Gotic. It is an easy walk to La Rambla and the Market as well as affordable restaurants in the area. Front desk staff were very helpful whenever we required... More

We had a junior suite with a view towards the Cathedral. Big and nice rooms although in a slight need for renovation. Not so sound proof windows. Location is fantastic, close to everything but also a quite busy plaza in front of the Cathedral that didn't get reasonably quiet until after midnight even on week days. Very friendly and helpful...

Hotel Colon is directly across the piazza from the Cathedral of Barcelona. The hotel itself is updated and comfortable. The front desk staff can't do enough for you and are quick to open a door or ring for an elevator or suggest a restaurant and give directions. The location was wonderful. There is always something going on in the piazza,... More

First 2 nights of a 2 week Mediterranean cruise, this hotel was in a location that made it easy for us to "hop on hop off" the tour bus, go to many sites in Barcelona, go to Mass at the Cathedral across the street. The hot tub area on the top floor is very nice and well kept! The staff... More
