We made a one night reservation at Regencia Colon Hotel - the sister hotel to this one - about a year ago before boarding a cruise ship for a Mediterranean cruise. Upon arrival the desk clerk told us we were being upgraded to the Colon across the street. Normally this would have "bugged me", but I had read on line...

Hotel Colon is a stark contrast in good and bad. The location is terrific and the "junion suite view" rooms are large, light, fantastic. BUT, the staff is totally lacking the warmth we encountered everywhere else in Spain. I informed them of my wife's birthday and they made no effort to acknowledge it. The Colon lives off of its location...
