Colón Review

There's something clubby about this Barcelona standby, surprisingly intimate for such a sizable operation. The location is ideal—directly across the plaza from the Catedral de la Seu, overlooking weekend sardana dancing, Thursday antiques markets, and, of course, the floodlighted cathedral by night. Rooms are outfitted with chintz florals and stripes, not the most fashionable choice, but it's comfortable; try to get one with a cathedral view. Miró fans will appreciate that the Colón was a favorite of the artist.

    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
