Haven't stayed at the Hotel Colon because I had to cancel a trip there, but it was recommend to us by a friend who lives in (and is a native of) Barcelona. He said it was the best hotel in town.

The Colon is situated directly across the square from the gothic cathedral, within walking distance of the Metro (Jaume I) and a block or so from Las Ramblas. If you are considering that hotel and can afford to do so, request one of the rooms/w balcony that overlooks the cathedral and square. Stayed there in 2000 and had excellent service and felt the location was (for our particular interests) unbeatable.

Thank you for your reply. Would you rate the colon a true 4 star? Are you familiar with the BW Atrium Palace?

I'm also thinking of the Atrium Palace, and Hotel America as possibilities for my stay in Barcelona I'd like to know if anyone has stayed at any of them.

It's incredible how expensive hotels have become in Barcelona. And think that I booked the Claris for 150 Euro per night two years ago....

Have stayed at the Hotel Colon on two occassions and would highly recommend it for easy access to Las Ramblas and the Gothic district. Definitely a 4 star. To be honest, it's the ONLY place I'd stay in Barcelona!!!
