Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Regencia Colon
good hotel, but not greatfrom Dutch Brother
Superb central locationfrom fizzb
Not the quietest hotel I've ever stayed in, but we expected that. Everything was very clean and well presented. Very efficient air-conditioning too, which kept the room nicely Arctic despite temperatures of 29 degrees outside. We had a problem with the safe in our room (locked shut!), but the manager came to fix it straight away for us - excellent service. Staff were all very friendly.
We were room only, and didn't bother taking breakfast, but found a lovely cafe just across the square that was very reasonable.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Excellent for the pricefrom AlfieO
Other recommendations - Agua restaurant near the marina is nice - above average price wise but no too pricey considering the decor & food. Book well in advance though if you want to each after 9:00 pm. Cafe Del Bispe over cathedral square from the Hotel Colon is a nice place to chill out and watch the world go by and the staff are v. friendly there too.
Barcelona is a great city - I'd go back tomorrow and be more than happy to stay at the Reg. Colon again.
Great Gemfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Room was nicely furnished, AC worked nicely and everything was clean and neat. Just close enough to everything to be convient, but far enough away to be quiet. Breakfast in the morning was pricey but nice. Would definately stay there again.
Looking forward to our next visit already!from A TripAdvisor Member
Great location; great value for your moneyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
And Barcelona is a city well worth a return visit. There is much to see, but you should also spend time relaxing in their parks, their sidewalk restaurants, enjoying tapas and sangria, and many, many pastries. Seriously, you need to see their selection of pastries, cookies, desserts, ice cream, chocolates.......
Value, value, valuefrom chrischennyc
In our experience, the desk was extremely friendly, the rooms were pleasantly air conditioned, but the walls were a little thin – I could hear the people next door, although it was only for about five minutes each night. They made ok suggestions for restaurants (Agut and Els Quatre Gats), and I was a little weary of one place that looked like a tourist trap. My best meals were at Cal Pep (they prepare a wonderful set five course menu of whatever is fresh) and Agut (great seafood and atmosphere), avoid Els Quatre Gats (touristy and moderate to bad food) and anything on La Rambla. We were also going to be back in Barcelona for a day before we left and they let us use their baggage room for a day. In the end, my stay was great and I would strongly recommend the Regencia Colon for a midrange hotel.
Superb valuefrom texaschica
Loved the Locationfrom crackofdawn
We were on the first floor of rooms and our little room faced the steet and did have a view of the corner of the Cathedral Square which was nice. Ear plugs were wonderful to have on Friday and Saturday night. Sunday night was very quiet and then Monday night the noise hit a normal volume again! You have a 10-15 min walk to Las Ramblas from the hotel and another 10-15 min walk on Las Ramblas in either direction to the end of Las Ramblas. They provide a small breakfast buffet at the hotel that was adequate and certainly convenient. The staff was friendly and helpful so the stay was enjoyable.
Be sure to visit the 4Gats restaurant which is a 5 min walk from the hotel. They are open early for dinner and get really crowded by 8:30, but the back room is large and they have a small balcony that rings the restaurant that is set up with 2-person tables. We were there twice and really enjoyed the meals.. the restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel staff!

Top Local Tips for Barcelona
Shopping Malls Glories is one good Mall, End of Diagonal at roundabout. A lot is outdoor walking between shops. Down the road where the tram runs down the middle of the road and there is a walkway between each direction of tram.
Taller de Tapas Ask to find your nearest (there are two), the food is fantastic, and well priced, sometimes the service doesnt match though!
Dining out Don't expect to eat early, many restaurants did not open till 8.30pm. During the day look out for restaurants to eat at so that when making a decision later on in the evening, when the hungar pains are starting, it is a whole lot easier. Some restaurants will "advise" you that you must have a least 6 tapas dishes, some may even mention that there is a "deal". There is not. Many dishes come with bread, best to wait and see before ordering it. And if the waiter asks if you want it toasted, you do. Spainish bread, although fresh, appears to be stale. To combat this, it is roughly rubbed with a half tomato. If you do not want this ask for plain bread.
