Hotel Barcelona Colonial

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location, amazing staff, very clean and accomodating

Location was great. Staff very helpful. Room very clean and the bed felt like being at home. My only issue was that I booked a king sized bed. Because I was a single traveler I was given twin beds. Not an issue that would hurt my review but would suggest a follow up you feel the lack of a king bed would be a deal breaker. Very affordable for a hotel at the beach.

Very good location for discovering Barcelona, close to the marina and in the middle of gothic quarter

This place is ideally located for gothic quartet and acquarium.

Perfect hotel for the price. The hotel is small but clean. Our "king" bed was two twins pushed together (as expected for hotels of the area), the comforter was worn but sheets were clean. Bathroom was nice and water pressure great, but the shower door did not close all the way causing the floor to be slippery after a shower. Overall met our expectations!

The hotel is priced very well for it's location. You are in the heart of all the action. The staff is great and the lobby, very well done. Sadly, the guest rooms could use some updating. Some furniture felt cheap for is environment. It was worn and dated. The floor had some excessively scratched spots. The room was also dimly lit. One quirky item was; you had to rent a key (2 euros per day) in order to use the room safe. The hotel is on the verge of being a class hotel with just a little investment. With some of these draw backs, I would still recommend this hotel, for a short stay, due to it's price & location.

Perfect location and staff is very helpful. Hope to get to stay here again. Would not opt for breakfast buffet

The Hotel’s location is great, there is an extra charge for parking if you are bringing a car. However after this, I do not reccomend driving in Barcelona. The staff was great and they put us in an excellent room with a balcony, much appreciated! The bed was uncomfortable but i found that to be the case with most european beds, must just be me. Toiletries come in small packets, not the standard small bottle or tube so don’t be surprised. The foyer from the elevator the the room must have had some water leakage at some point because it had a moldy smell to it. All in all I would reccomend this hotel to a friend.

Great hotel, modern and clean! Close to the beach, coffee shops and other turistic points.

Hotel was wonderful, located a block from the waterfront and just a couple blocks down from the center of action. great restaurants right in the area, coffee shops right on the street including a Starbucks one block away with free wifi. Large comfortable room with several english news channels, large bathroom with a large shower. True value for the price!

Hotel was in a great location, close to the waterfront, beach and Barri Gotic. My room was clean and modern. Much better value than another hotel I stayed in 3 blocks away. No wireless or internet in rooms.
