Unwind at this snug hotel near Barcelona’s cathedral

This moderately-sized hotel has well-equipped rooms and a lovely bar decked out in 19th century style. The restaurant at the neighboring sister property serves innovative Mediterranean cuisine.

Great for sightseeing

Really enjoyed our stay, friendly staff, immaculately clean room, right in the centre of town. The hotel has an old fashioned quality really charming. Nice decor with character not like the anonymous large hotels. Well located just off the cathedral square, would have been quiet if not for the building work currently going on just beside the cathedral but this will affect every hotel in the area so can't be helped. The gothic quarter is so beautiful with wonderful shops and so much choice will definately return and to the same hotel !

Good Value in Barcelona

The Regencia Colon is smaller than the Hotel Colon that is behind its big brother that fronts the plaza. It is also about half the cost with less amenities. The room was clean, the bed was firm, and the bathroom equipped with the usual amenities including shower gel/shampoo, soap & clean towels. The staff is helpful, but generally limited to the men working the front desk. The single elevator is small, which can be a tight fit with large luggage or more than 4 people. The hotel is small (50 rooms) & lacks a dedicated computer to print out boarding passes. The location is generally excellent being a stone's throw from the old cathedral and on the route of the Hop-On, Hop Off bus tours.

Nice Little Hotel

Great location just around the corner from the Cathedral and Las Ramblas. Very clean and nice. Friendly staff who are very helpful. I like this better than their big sister hotel across the street call the Hotel Colon. Would definitely book this hotel again.

Great value near cathedral

Needed a one day stay in Barcelona after a side trip. Hotel was one block from cathedral and perfectly acceptable given we would be touristing most of the day and then heading to the airport. Staff were ok but if you needed help with your luggage or wanted them to make a restaurant reservation (they said the restaurant we mentioned wouldn't need one) you might want to go more upscale. Still happy with the room given the price.

Perfect location

Loved being in the Gothic area--so charming-- and able to walk anywhere. Airport bus, tour buses, and metro are a short walk to Plaza Catalunya. Good breakfast buffet and great staff. Room was very nice but a bit noisy -- the connecting doors between the rooms could use some sealing. Mattress was hard as a rock for my aging bones.

Excellent location

The room was exactly what you would want from a good 3 star hotel - certainly nice enough, and the bed was comfortable. While the decor certainly wasn't new, everything was fine. The wifi worked fine in my room, and the staff was very friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The location is fantastic...a stones throw away from the Barcelona Cathedral, so if you want to wander around the Gothic Quarter (as I did) then this is a great place to have as your base of operations. Some here have complained about the noise levels, but I feel this is understandable considering the location. The buildings in the Gothic Quarter are older, so they won't have the same degree of sound dampening as you would expect from modern construction, plus the streets are very narrow, everything is close together, and you're in a city that is known for being active late into the evening. If you're going to stay in the Gothic Quarter, I think some noise outside is to be expected. That said, I was on the 4th floor so it would have been nosier on a lower floor. Even still, I was there during La Mercè and I was still able to get a good night sleep every night. (And at earlier times, it was nice to have the window open and hear the activity and music going on outside.) The only noteworthy criticism I can offer is that the hot water did cut in/out on me sometimes, and I think it was probably due to the level of usage around me. That part wasn't so good. But all in all, I was pleased enough for the price that this one issue didn't bother me much. So little, in fact, that I certainly wouldn't mind staying there again if I return to Barcelona at some point.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Wander the streets - go down odd alley's and back streets. There are little bars, restaurants, and stores everywhere...not just on the main streets. Also, by doing so you'll get a much better feel for the area and see architecture and other sights you might have otherwise missed. And if you are into photography, you will be especially rewarded by doing this.

Great hotel, great location

Excellent hotel in the middle of the action; fairly priced. Even with prime location -- five minute walk from Las Ramblas -- room was nice and quiet. Very nice place to stay. I would stay here again.

Mercat de la Bouqueria is by la ramblas - we had some really tasty fresh food to eat at a little bar inside the bar which was really good value and a great Spanish experience.

Perfect location

I had a good stay at the Regencia Colon. Staff was supportive and had an answer when ever I needed it. I walked to most all of the major things to see plus finding more. I stayed for 9 nights and new the area well. The only thing I had a hard time with is the Cathedral bells as there are two within hearing distance. So every hour they ding...so I never went to bed before 12 as after 12 its 1, 2 & 3 dongs. This is an issue in most of BARCELONA as there are several Cathedrals needless to say.
