I've stayed at Hotel Colon in 2000 and had a nice experience, so when I looked for hotels for my visit in May 2012, I reserved directly from their website and saw that their rates vary depending the date, so prices can be 50% more from one day or week to the other.
When I stayed there I was lucky to get a great rate (110 euros but other days was close to 200)
Rooms are nice and they respond to my request of a quiet room in the back, as I wasn't sure how noisy could it be facing the cathedral.
The location is great.
Staff was very nice and helpful and I was able to check in earlier .
