Hotel problems in Barcelona Gothic Quarter - Must Read

Jump to last reply

If you can, try to stay away from these two hotels.........Hotel Colon and Hotel Catalonia.
Next time I will stay at a chain hotel from United States. Don't be fool by those good reviews in hotels.com and expedia.com.

We stayed in Hotel Colon with nothing but problems. Our reservation was for five nights and we unhappily checked out after only two nights.

The twin mattress collapsed after the first night and they lied about the air conditioning. Hotel Colon website stated that their rooms are equipped with A/C. Surprise! No A/C, the system offers only fan. Here's the worst.......we turned on the fan and later it was cigarettes smoke blowing from the fan. We complained and the unhelpful front desk staff said there is nothing they can do. It must be someone is smoking and went into your exhaust fan. What a joke!

We walked about 200 feet and found another hotel, Hotel Catalonia with nice rooms and fully A/C. The second day we returned from the guided tour to find out our day-bed was missing from our room. We were frightened that did someone break-in our room. I called front desk to found out that they needed a single bed for another room. I was just mad that they come in to your without your consent and taking things out.

Aside from the hotel problems, Barcelona is a fun city. We enjoyed!
