Location, Location, Location. We found the Colon to be excellent in all ways. The hotel itself is beautiful and kept up. Our room was lovely with a terrace overlooking the Cathedral. Staff was very accommodating and recommended excellent restaurants. It was a wonderful experience!
Rooms are small, but certainly adequate. the Bathroom was very nice with two sinks, bidet and nice appointments. We loved the restaurant and the bar with the piano player. Nice experience!
My wife and i thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Colon hotel and would recomend this hotel as an excellent central location to explore Barcelona. You are right in the centre but yet in a very quiet peacful location just off La Rambla ideal for all restaurants, the bus tours etc which are a must for anybody visiting the city. We loved the peacful aspect of the hotel once you enter from the street.
The staff was professional, attentive and helpful. They provided information on local activities, access to tickets and recommendations/directions to great restaurants. We highly recommend this hotel.
Friendly old world comfort great location

The location of the hotel was outstanding. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable about the area and nearby amwnities.
Excellent location, frriendly and helpful staff.
We were very pleased with our room and the location of the hotel.
Could not fault the hotel, the staff were wonderful, the hotel was very clean. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in the centre of Barcelona.
Thought the breakfast was a little bit pricey.
Everything apart from the bed!
The bed was creaky
We asked for, and received, an actual double bed instead of two single beds pushed together. We ask this every time, but very few hotels have ever provided the actual double bed.
We had an upgraded room. The location was excellent, as was the quality. Service by the staff also was good and without problems.
Excellent location. Very helpful staff.
I love the Colon. It's location, on the square directly across from the cathedral and the royal palace is sensational. I stayed their with my young daughter for 4 nights 20 years ago and this week for 6 nights with my wife. It was a great hotel then and has only gotten better. It is our place to stay in Barcelona. It has a great restaurant and comfortable bar.
No, but some people would wish for a pool and exercise room.
Location, room and services
politeness and helpfulness of staff, pleasant atmosphere
Very clean, comfortable beds, helpful staff', ideal location
Not advisable if you like quiet - it can be very noisy outside at night, but for us this was not a problem
The hotel is very central and a great base for exploring the Gothic and Born districts of the city. It is also only 400m from Placa Catalunya, and an easy walk to La Rambla and the marina.
The rooms were a bit noisy.
Lovely rooms and view of cathedral and square..Staff excellent.Great location for exploring Barcelona.We thoroughly enjoyed our way too short stay!
Staff were always willing to help out on any matter. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Location was superb.
Good location - staff friendly and helpful - restaurant served good food well presented, and good value for money.
Although of good quality and choice the breakfast at €18 was a little expensive.
Good central position
proximity to historic city of the Bario Gotico
The location of the hotel is very good.
The staff could explain more than 1 possibility how to get or reach the point of my interest . sometimes I feel that they have only formal answer, not the real willingness to help.
The location of the hotel
yes, it was very noisy
It was friendly, clean and very central for City tourists. The service was excellent and the beds very comfortable.
A ramp should be installed from the pavement to the lobby so that staff don't have to carry luggage up the steps! Suitcases all have wheels these days.
Position and food in restaurant and helpfulness of staff
Nice location and quiet room.
