Fodor's Review

The Colón opened in 1951, and feels like it's been around forever: quiet, conservative, correct. The lobby tells you what's in store: the antique upright clock, the salmon walls and marble floors and walnut trim, the discretely separated suites of comfy chairs and sofas in flocked upholstery, the hotel coat of arms on the curtains. It's the sort of place you'd take your grandmother for dinner. (The food, alas, is unmemorable.) But the Colón is suprisingly reasonable for what and where it is, and the location is ideal—providing you can book a room with a balcony, overlooking the Cathedral square. Illuminated at night, the Catedral de la Seu is spectacular. On weekends, there's sardana dancing in the square, on Thursday an antique market. Small wonder it was Miró's favorite hotel.

loved it

They say to get a room facing the Cathedral, but we were on the other side and had an adorable terrace with a retractable awning, it was very cute and the service was fabulous. It also had a jetted tub. Great location we walked to La Rambla and to the beach, although it was a bit of hike to the beach

Great Hotel Close to Cruise Terminal

This past July we took a cruise that departed from Barcelona. There were three of us and a lot of luggage. We were delighted that Hotel Colon was so cloe to the terminal and had plenty of closet space for all our clothing. The location is ideal for walking most places and has a submway station very closeby. We stopped every evening for a nightcap at their outdoor cafe on the Cathedral square. We would definitely stay here again.

Hotel Colón Review

Great location near the cathedral, nice staff and free internet. Sound of the bells was not an issue, and within walking distance of La Rambla and other sights. However, configuration of the bathrooms made the use of some of the facilities uncomfortable
