We stayed at the Hotel Colon following a cruise in November of 2013. We paid the slight bit extra for a Cathedral view room, which I recommend most highly. Even though we arrived early in the day after disembarkation, the hotel had a room for us. So much is within easy walking distance - the Cathedral; the City Museum (an...

As all the other reviews suggest, the location is perfect. Hotel is nice, possibly showing its age, still firmly stick in the peach/green/yellow decor - but who cares when the staff are lovely, the breakfast is good and you are in the right location. Our one minor downside is that the air-conditioning is stuck at a 'hotel-wide' setting which was...

Stay in this hotel during this New Year celebration. Perfect location for both shoping and to experience the old Barcelona on foot.

This is a lovely hotel, and the location for most of the sites in Barcelona are within walking distance or easily reached. My sons and I used the metro frequently, as the stop is close to the hotel, and it is very easy to use. We also walked many places as the weather in January is lovely----not too hot, and...
