Bad, Worst, Lousiest Hotel I ever stay in my life
One word : Bad !!! Receptionist Super Rude, Bad Manner, Not helpful Very very very bad experience. I used Agoda for years. Staying more than 30 good hotels just for the past one year. But never encounter such a bad rude Receptionist in my life. I just pray the General Manager of The Colon Hotel Barcelona will read my honest review about his staff. I checked in on 21st March 2015 for a one night stay. We arrive at the hotel at 11pm. We just arrive from Madrid. After all we gonna stay for few hours only. Once I check in I inform the front desk guy he is an old man and he claimed to be the Duty Manager at that time. I requested for an extra bed because one of my friend are following us to watch the El-Clasico match on the next day. The rude front desk guy straight away turn his face and say NO. And continue say NO NO NO. He says "You book for a 2 persons room and you get 2 persons room !!!" Of course I knew it. In fact I try to add additional one person a week before through Agoda "Special Request" button in my confirmation email but the function failed and I can't perform the request. I try to explain to Feran but without listening to me he interrupted and raise his voice and says "we have got telephone number and you can call us 24 hours !!!". He is super rude. In my mind I only know hotel staff is always there to help us to solve our problem. If he don't have extra bed then at least help us to find another hotel. But he didn't . He is not there to help at all. I felt the way he talk like he's a complete to Asian. Then I request to see his superior and he turn me down. Now he says he is the receptionist only and his manager only comes to work the next morning. With no help from them we walk out to find another hotel nearby.The staff says no rooms and U know what??? Without my request he offer to help me to find another hotel. He make phone call, browse website n found us Hotel nearby.

Great location and surprisingly quiet!
Location, location, location
Our stay was superb! The first room they took us to was only sub-par. The bellman called the front desk, and lucky for us there was another room available that was better - updated/upgraded. The location is excellent - we would walk or ride the metro to do some sightseeing or shopping, and we could easily pop into the hotel to drop things off or take a little break in the middle of our outing! There was wonderful activity in the square - music and impromptu dancing - but it was always quiet in our room. The only downside... the internet was intermittent at best. Overall, a truly lovely stay!
