The proximity to Gothic quarter is unbeatable”

Opposite the start of the Gothic quarter, comfortable rooms, quiet rooms

I liked staying at the Colon hotel very much, because the Gothic quarter is my favorite part of Barcelona. The rooms were quiet, something that is a real problem at the Colon's next door sister hotel (I don't remember the name, but it's got the word "Colon" in it, too). The room was also better decorated and cozier than the room I stayed in at the neighboring hotel.

The hotel is located right in front of the Cathedral and next to the Gothic neighborhood. It is a charming small hotel, the rooms are colorful and elegant.
We were very pleased with the hotel. Nothing negative comes to mind.

Colon is a charming small hotel, extremely well located. It is walking distance from the Picasso Museum, right in front of the Cathedral and close to excellent tapas restaurants. The rooms are decorated with beautiful colors, service was very efficient and breakfast was decent. It will be our choice when we go back to Barcelona!

Excellent city location, safe choice”

Centrally located for el Born,Gotic and Ramblas quiet, friendly staff

I selected this hotel so my elderly mother could have a cathedral view room, while I stayed in a single room. The location was excellent for my mother - a short walk to cafes for food, close enough for her to walk to the Ramblas, the market and get the feel of the Gotic quarter. Views from her hotel room over the ever-busy square and onto the cathedral kept her entertained whilst resting. The single room has no particular view - just over a narrow road onto another hotel but is fine. Double glazing kept all noise out of the rooms. Staff were friendly. Wifi internet worked in all rooms. Bed was comfortable. No kettles in the rooms. I can't comment on the restaurant as I dined out.

Excellent location”

The location of the Hotel Colón is second to none: situated in the center of the Gothic quarter, the old town of Barcelona, it is within walking distance of almost everything you need to see in order to understand and fall in love with Barcelona (other sites like the magnificent Montjuic with its pleasant views, parks and excellent museums) can be reached easily by public transportation).

Fantastic location in a great city”

Location, location, location

We had a great time in Barcelona, with the hotel being literally on the doorstep to everything we needed. The hotel was cosy, quite recently redecorated in "old style", but I think we got the worst room in the hotel. We booked a standard room and hoped for an upgrade with a view to the cathedral, but instead we got a cramped room with backyard view and building noises from early morning to late afternoon. I think there was some problems with the aircon/heating system, because the room turned extremely hot in the middle of the night and quite cold in the morning. Having said that, the bathroom was nice and we did not spend a lot of time in the room.

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!

Very good Hotel”

Superb Location

This hotel is very good for the following reasons: 1.Location: it couldn't be better. You are exactly across the Barcelona Cathedral in the Gothic Quarter. This means that all you have to do is to walk out of the hotel to be in the middle of one of the 3 tourist destinations in the whole city. 2, Rooms: We had a very spacious room with a large king size bed. Very comfortable in every sense. The bathroom was also very adequate and large. There is a flat screen in the room with an ample selection of TV channels. Internet wi-fi is available free of charge throughout the hotel including the rooms. 3. Service: Very courteous and efficient reception desk. It cannot be faulted.

same as the old day

i came back to this hotel after 20 years from my first trip abroad. the rooms is a little old comparing with other design hotels, but it has the tradition. and in front of cathedral is very cozy so i was happy to back there again. it seems to be restored so that there's no problem of water or heater. but wifi is a little slow then if you go for the business, i don7t recommend to stay there.

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.
