“Great view”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

We changed hotels from another suggested as it was too far out of town. This hotel is in the perfect location and we booked one of the suites that over look the Cathedral with a terrace. Specticular view! The location was excellent and we had no complaints about the service or the facilities. We loved Barcelona and when we go back we will definitely stay at the Colon Hotel--and can't imagine any hotel in Barcelona being better located or more enjoyable.

Room Tip: Go for the suite with a terrace--it's worth it.

we took the aerobus from the airport to the city center. walked for 3 minutes to the hotel located right in the barcelona cathedral square. No frills in this hotel. You check in they give you a map and make your day trips and come back to rest. Very helpful with the information to get around Barcelona. subways within reach. we did not take a taxi anywhere. No coffee machine. Our room was on the top overlooking the cathedral and the square. It was very interesting to watch everyone and we had an excellent time.

Room Tip: higher floors have better veiws

This hotel has the best address in town - beautifully situated right on the Cathedral square, very close to the pedestrian shopping area, food market, concert hall, Picasso museum and many lovely restaurants. A room higher up is preferable - we stayed on the 4th floor and had a perfect view of the cathedral, yet it is very quiet as windows are double glazed. All facilities are excellent, and the staff are courteous and helpful - a most enjoyable stay.

Excellent location. The hotel is quite dated, though still presentable. Quite clean with a good shower and comfortable bed. The staff is very nice and helpful.The buffet breakfast is fairly good , esp. if you like bread and cold cuts. No complaints other than poor service in the bar area.

After the airlines turned a nonstop Miami to Barcelona flight into a 2 day travel nightmare we arrived at Hotel Colon and were warmly greeted by the front desk staff. Manual was incredible--professional and empathetic to our stressful journey to Barcelona. We were quickly checked in and escorted to our room which was a superior room with terrace overlooking the Cathedral. WOW, definitely worth the extra money!! We were surprised upon check out the following morning that the front desk manager was offering us buffet breakfast at no additional charge which was delicious and had fresh fruit, pasteries, juices and hot breakfast in abundance. We returned to the hotel one week later after getting off our cruise to find that the hotel had upgraded us to the same outstanding terrace room at no additional charge as their way of hoping to end our vacation on a joyful note. I know that my husband and I will return to Barcelona and both agree that Hotel Colon will be our choice for accomodations.

Room Tip: splurge for the terrace room facing the cathedral

Wonderful hotel in a fantastic location. The room looked nice and it was very clean. One downside would be the hotel restaurant, which is very expensive (18.5 euros per person for breakfast?), but there are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby that make up for it. Overall a great experience.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask specifically for a double bed, otherwise you might end up with twin beds.
