              Great situation. Perfect stay. ”

              The hotel is in the perfect location for walking, going by metro or bus around the city to all the amazing sites and so close to the beach, the port and Las Ramblas. The twin bedroom beds were spacious and comfortable and the room had everything you need from a city hotel. There was no kettle but room service is available and cafes adorn the streets. We had a back room high up, so had no noise disruption and slept well. The staff were all excellent and helpful. My friend and I would definitely stay at Barcelona Colonial Hotel.

              The location is great. In the the El Gotic and close to Hop On Hop Off buses. Close to Tapas and taxis are very reasonable. Did have two “Professionals” (as the thieves are called) follow us into the lobby and try to grab one of our carry ons. We believe our airport cab driver set us up and had the two guys waiting as we arrived at 1 am. We had no other theft issues in Barcelona. Great “Cafeteria” within very short walk on the same street for great breakfast.

              Good hotel depending on the room location”

              This hotel is a generally good as a four-star hotel. BUT remember, your room location is very very important. I stayed here for 3 nights. On the first day, my room faced the street. I couldn’t get to sleep because of traffic noise and people’s gabble until 3-4 AM. After then, I couldn’t sleep again because of subway vibration. I talked to staff, he imediately changed my room to the back room. It was quite and great. If I visit Barcelona again, I’ll stay here in the quite room. :-)

              Nice hotel - great location”

              I stayed 4 nights at Colonial at the end of a 16 day tour of Spain and Portugal. I was ready for some r & r. The negative about my stay at this hotel is my room looked onto a wall about 5 metres away & there were windows to a common hallway and other guest rooms only 1-2 metres from my window, which meant the curtains were closed all the time. This would be ok for a one or two night stay - but for a four night stay it was a bit claustraphobic.

              Great Experience Outside of Bartender”

              My husband and I recently stayed at the Colonial and I have to say that it was an awesome choice. The room was gorgeous and very clean and the front desk staff and housekeeping were beyond kind. Unfortunately, I can not say the same about the Bartender. After a very long day and having spent 3 hours on the phone with the airlines about our lost luggage my husband asked the front desk staff to warm up some food in the microwave for us. The kind front desk staff directed him to the bar area. Once there a young woman, the bartender, was very annoyed with our request despite the fact that there was not another soul in the bar area. She had a horrible attitude and begrudgingly warmed up the food. When she brought it back and it was still cold and her response was she didn't know how to use the microwave. The front desk personal apologized on her behalf. But, the way she spoke to us was disgusting. Having been in hospitality I know that all facets of your business are a reflection of you.

              Very near the metro station and a short walk to many major sights in Barcelona. Buffet breakfast was a little expensive, so we didn't try it. There are many supermarkets and cafes around the hotel to buy food at a cheaper price.

              Staff was superb!! Extremely helpful. Helped booked tickets for events on their computer. made helpful suggestions. Set up large cab for airport night before.... Excellent! Room is very dark. Dark colors are nice but since the lights are low and the natural light tough due to the high rise behind... No clock. (From our friends staying there and had their breakfast included);Breakfast had one coffee pot 'out of order' and food was fair at best. We spent 5-10 Euros fro great food almost next door. Bar prices pretty high considered neighboring restaurants and bars. Charge for a safe is ridiculous. Very basic amenity, which also helps protect the hotel... But the service staff, location and overall price is very good!

              If you are in Barcelona for culture and history, this is probably the best place to stay in Gothic Quarter. It's in the middle of the city. The airport is far, approx 25 mins of driving without traffic. The hotel is clean and nice.

              We were bumped to another hotel?”

              The above is a review of the Hotel Gotico NOT the Barcelona Colonial Hotel where we booked through Agoda. When we arrived at the Barcelona Colonial Hotel we were told there was a problem with our room and we were relocated to the Hotel Gotico. This explanation was unconvincing and we felt as if we had been'bumped' to a lesser Hotel that was not our choice. The Gotico, in my opinion is not a four star hotel. The room was very small, there were no tea or coffee facilities and to open a bottle of wine we needed to visit the front desk for staff to use the only corkscrew available in the hotel (not what you would expect in a four star hotel). Importantly our transaction for this booking was through Agoda for a room at the Barcelona Colonial Hotel as advertised through Agoda web site NOT the Gotico Hotel.

              Superb location in the gothic neighborhood; ten minute walk to the beach. ”

              Superb centrally located hotel; perfect for sightseeing, eating, shopping and the beach. It would be difficult to find another place as well sutuated as this property. The room was a decent size for a European hotel. Beds tiny as often in Europe. Bathroom was modern. Staff were helpful. Lots of restaurants nearby. All this was a major plus. Very happy with the set up. The Downside: the hotel is on a corner of a busy larger commercial street and a small street which houses the post office and city garbage trucks. Plus it was near numerous restaurants and bars. As a result, it was extremely noisy right through 5 am daily with the trucks and rowdy and drunken passersby. Thin walls and glass. Our room was on a low floor, right on the busy corner and the noise was very disruptive to any attempt at sleep. Another guest said that his back-facing room was not noisy , so recommend seeking a room higher up, not facing the street. Bring own amenitues, shampoo etc. barest minimals provided.

              I had booked colonial but due to technical issue got sister hotel medinacelli which is nearby ”

              Con When i reached colonial hotel i was told that my i had confirmed reservation but as usual there was a technical issue and i would not be allocated hotel colonial and they offered me a stay in their sister hotel medenicalli with ugrade to buffet breakfast and street view room. Since i was travelling with infant i had no other option to think about so I took that option. Considering the difference in the room tarrifs of both the hotels i think i had paid more for colonisl and got a lesser price option Pros Medinacelli is also a good hotel but lacked basic facilities like a room kettle which i had to ask from hotel staff and was allocated to me with a deposit of 15 euro. View from the hotel is good as you can see the port view and walk way from the room. Hotel staff is good and easy to communicate.

              My second time staying at this hotel and it is just the most perfect location! Port Vell is literally down the road which then leads to the beach and you’re right on top of the gothic quarter, it is literally behind the hotel so you can get everywhere on foot!!! The hotel itself is lovely and clean and the staff are the most friendly, always go out of their way to be of help! We had breakfast included which was really nice there was a good selection to set you up for the day. The rooms are spacious, clean and classicly modern. I could not recommend this hotel enough!

              excellent location, we were cruising, its close but still need to taxi to port, hotel is close to Ramblas, and off on bus stop staff was friendly and very helpful, they printed my air boarding pass. rooms are small and beds are singles, but can be doubled up on request, if you want quiet ask for a back room, no view but quiet. book in advance for best prices

              The stay was very pleasant. I managed to have a nice bath time which was very good. And it was very easy to get to many locations around Barcelona.

              I love this hotel....the stunning lobby makes me feel good during check in. Friendly staff...hassle free check in...spacious room...spacious bathroom...good breakfast..beautiful room deco...easy access to tour bus meeting point....walking distance to La Rambla and Placa de Catalunya. It would be better if the hotel could provide kettle in the room.

              Fabulous location ”

              For us, the hotel could not have been in a better location. staff were helpful when required. Great base for exploring

              Overall a great stay, great base for exploring, very near to El Born, Gothic Quarter, Marina. We were room only so cannot comment on any dining experience. Only slight issues were to do with noise, maids were quite noisy on a morning plus the sound of the underground metro. I had brought earplugs after reading other reviews so not too much of an inconvenience.

              Good.....with a caveat”

              Nice location, nice property, good staff, clean rooms. I would like to be able to recommend 100 percent, however the one thing that is beyond their control holds me back. It is very noisy, and as light sleepers, we struggled to get a good night's rest. Our first room was on the ground floor, and while a lovely room, the room and pictures shook from the vibration of the trains below. They kindly changed us to a fifth floor room. Again, lovely room, but the street noise outside made it difficult to sleep. If you are a heavy sleeper, go for it, you will love the hotel!
