Historical Traveler Reviews Regencia Colon Hotel Barcelona
Very good place to say
We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. It took quite a bit of time to search through the various places with a central location and this was an almost perfect fit for us. The rooms were clean, ample sized, and confortable. The staff was very attentive, courteous, and helpful. The only problem is the noise, which could affect light sleepers. Twice in five nights, large trash trucks emptied dumpster after midnight. But, since dinner
starts at 9PM, we should have stayed up later....
Great for a weekend away
We stayed at the Regencia Colon Hotel, a good 3 star just a 10 min walk down a pedestrian street from the placa de Catalunya, the main square and stopping off point for the buses (including the aerobus to/from the main airport). The staff all spoke english and were very helpful. Cheap price for bed and breakfast only downside was the noise...most hotels in this city are the same!...so take ear plugs with you. Hotel was just off the square of the main Cathedral and a 3 min walk to the stop for the Bus Touristic which takes you on either the north or south route of the city. We bought a 2 day pass and used it rather than public tranport so we could get to places and jump off or stay on for the trip onwards...open top bus so fab in the sun. You must see anything mentioning Gaudi, not forgetting the Palau Guell off the southern end of the Ramblas which often gets missed. Great place for a huge beer in Las Ramblas, also near the Guell Palau, just walk along and see which open air cafe it was. Explore the tiny medieval streets on the left and right of the southern end of Las Ramblas...rather like the streets in Venice. We had a great time, so I hope you do too!
Excellent Location, Clean....
After spending 4 hours driving in Barcelona looking for a hotel in the Maritime area which nobody knew about we found this..... DON'T DRIVE your car in Barcelona....This hotel was almost next door to the Cathedral and very central to Barcelona.... We stayed Oct 20th & 21st... I would recommend the hotel to anyone.... We tried to stay a 3rd night but we were told it was full.... Still questioning it...
Great location, lovely hotel that we'd recommend in a heartbeat
We loved staying here and being so central in Barcelona! We could walk to most places in the city, and could actually see the cathedral from our room (which had a view of the cathedral square, as it was a corner room). And the value was great for the location (we paid about 125 Euros/night), and the staff were very helpful! Our bed was great - a true double bed with great pillows, we slept very well here despite September 19-23, 2003 being a festival weekend and the city being extremely crowded with the festival center almost right outside our window!! One concern we had was too much internal or external noise being in such a central location, and the music from the cathedral square sometimes sounded like it was in our room! But it was a special weekend in the city, and the city obviously has no limits on how incredibly loud it lets street musicians play! This was not a hotel problem per se, and we didn't hear people in other rooms. We just accepted it and enjoyed the excitement, and think the noise levels would have been fine on a normal day or weekend. Good option.
Great location, fine room!
We found our room to be spacious, sunny, and clean, and if you stuck your head out of the window and craned your neck you could see the cathedral. The room was mostly quiet except for some noise from the uncarpeted hallway and some banging of pots one night from neighboring apartment buildings (part of a political protest, perhaps). The only problem with the room is that it was two single beds, not a double bed.
Perhaps the website through which we booked the room could be more clear about what is meant by the term "double room".
Well located in the Barri Gothic, just around from the Cathedral. Hotel was quiet, clean and simply furnished. Excellent buffet breakfast was a great way to start the day. Reception staff were very friendly and willing to organise trips or taxis etc. No hesitation in recommending.
A modest and reasonably priced hotel in a fantastic area. Unbelievably cool neighborhood and this hotel is smack dab in the middle of it, right next to the cathedral. Lots of great restaurants and cafes in the area. Hotel itself is light on the furnishings and charm, but is clean and staff is helpful. Highly recommended as a good place to explore the city.
Great location, pleasant hotel
I found the Regencia Colon on Orbitz where I got a great rate. The hotel is located just off the Cathedral Square in the Barrio Gotica -- a wonderful location. The rooms are small, but well furnished and very comfortable. The staff is friendly. And, because it is just off the square, it is probably a little quieter than some other hotels.
the hotel despite renovations and very central situation was very comfortable and value for money , staff friendly and helpful

... We also visited the local market which had everything you could possibly want. This is where the locals do their grocery shopping. It's like a giant flea market but higher end. There is so much fresh seafood available for purchase. The fish monger was the neatest. Laurie looked on with a look of disgust as they chopped the heads off fish and gutted them while you wait. Pretty stinky. There is fresh fruit, vegetables and meat of ...
... a joke about "cake and a brew" in what he described as a Manchester accent. I thought I was funny by telling him he sounded more welsh - oh deary me.... I put my foot right in it, because the woman sat on the opposite side of the isle to me was from Wrexham and seemed to take offence at my welsh remark - I noticed her offence when she shouted "OI IM FROM WALES"!!! Ooooopsies! A slightly awkward atmosphere followed - good job it was just over a ...

... minute or so was a treat.
The views from the tower are spectacular, although the openings restrict the views somewhat. Much of one side of the Church is covered by scaffolding, as construction is ongoing. From the viewing location, visitors cross a small stone bridge and can then either descend a short distance back to the elevator or descend 400 (or so) steps down a narrow spiral stairway (I chose the elevator as I was hot, tired and my back ...
... of Gaudi's death. The Familia is a marvel of modern architecture, it is still only about 60% complete and two of the three facades were visible. One side is the nativity facade which was completed under Gaudi's supervision. The stonework is incredible and it almost looks like the rock is melting. The other side is the passion facade which depicts the life of Jesus and his eventual ascension into heaven. The inside was just as incredible, Gaudi was ...
