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.

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.

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.

Take bus 19 to go from the hotel to Sagrada La Familia. Cost was low, close to location and a great ride. Being across from the cathedral was also super

Great location & value for Barcelona

We were very happy with our experience at this hotel. The desk clerk was very helpful when we checked in, and gave us Room #261. This room has a huge outdoor patio with table & chairs. You can look down the street and see the Cathedral, and there is even an electric awning for rain or sun protection. It's in the Gothic area, an easy walk to lots of tourist sites.

Honeymooners

This is definitely not your today's modern day hotel. Old hotel with old decor. No American voltage plugs. We were not able to plug in labtop, cell phones, camera/video camera recorder for re-charging, etc... No washer/dryer, gym, restaurant on site. They did offer laundry service and continental breakfast but for a steep/hefty price. The bed was rock hard. Only (2) cheap/flimsy pillows were provided. Very uncomfortable!!!! Staff unfriendly and unhelpful at times. We will never stay here again. But, with all that said, the location was fabulous. The only good thing about the hotel. Beware: when using the cab service in Barcelona, ask the cab driver in advance for the rate to your destination. We unfortunately did not do this and were taken advantage of. Also watch for pick pocketers/purse snatchers. Very big in Barcelona.

Unbeatable location and staff

The hotel location was perfect. It is in the heart of the Gothic quarter of Barcelona - literally around the corner from the famed Gothic Cathedral. It is also only a short walk from La Rambla and some great little restaurants. The rooms were pretty sizeable - we had two twins squeezed together and another twin in our room - but the bathroom was a little small (but hey, it worked for our one night stay while touring Barcelona and waiting to board the cruiseship). The staff spoke quite a bit of English and were very attentive. They collect your room key when you leave (the area around La Rambla is known for pickpockets and it's nice to have one less thing to worry about) and have someone at the desk 24hours so you can collect it. They also have a room safe you can set for you personally that is great - leave your passports in the room there. We were leaving on a cruise the next afternoon and our ship didn't leave until 5pm, but the check-out time is 12pm, and we wanted to see Barcelona, so we had to do something with our luggage. The hotel will hold it for you in a secure room. We left our luggage and explored the city. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend this hotel for others.

Take the Metro (buy a 10 punch ticket if you are travelling a lot or with multiple people) from Catalunya to Pl. Espayna to see the Magic Fountain at night. Best attraction in Barcelona.

Wonderfully simple, fantastic location!

Stayed at the hotel Regencia Colon for 3 nights as part of a honeymoon tour of Spain, and our first time to Barcelona. The hotel is very nice, but the main attraction is the location - directly off the placa cathedral, its is within walking distance to many major Barcelona attractions and nightlife, amazing churros y xocolate - and because its on a block behind the placa, nightlife noise is at a minimum. We awoke Sunday to lovely live traditional music drifting in from the Placa - it was unforgettable experience. The staff was very courteous and helpful, and pointed us int he direction of some time and money saving attractions nearby. The free breakfast buffet was excellent.

When returning to Barcelona airport, take advantage of the inexpensive Aerobus service which leaves from nearby Placa Catalunya, much cheaper than a cab ride!
