This hotel was in a great location. About a five minute walk from two different tube stations. The hotel staff was very friendly and the breakfast was just right; cereal, bread, ham and cheese, juices. We were on the third floor, which being 7 months pregnant was not the most fun with no elevator. (Normally this would not bother me... More

We stayed in a room in the basement. This made the room feel cramped, despite having windows. The bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen. It was difficult to close the shower door, once inside. Maybe the other rooms are different. We had the last room available. I did not feel the place to be particularly clean. Average at... More

Very friendly and helpful staff, clean and nice rooms, cosy atmosphere and the breakfast was all that you needed; coffee, yoghurt, cereal, juice, croissant, ham and chees. I warmly recommend this hotel!

Stayed in Columbus 3 times in the past 5 years and always enjoyed it, but on this occasion we were totally blown away with all the work done since we stayed last time in October 2013. Everything had changed, totally reformed, decorated and still spotless clean. The accommodation had been totally brought up to date and the location is excellent.... More

I cannot have enough praise for this hotel! I have stayed here twice in the last couple of months for a total of 5 nights and it was just what I needed. I travelled to London for studying purposes and I booked the single room which is a very small room on the top floor. The room is very small... More

We have just spent 3 nights at this hotel on our first visit to London. We found the staff (esp Pedro) to be very warm, welcoming and helpful.

Stayed at Columbus for one night last week as was visiting Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.

Stayed for one night to go to winter wonderland. Ideal location close to Hyde Park and Paddington. Had a quad room on the second floor. 2 singles and a double. Beds were very comfy. And we didn't experience any noise at all. Bathroom is tiny though. It's what is call a pod. You could sit on the loo and shower... More

This hotel is at an excellent location, one block from Paddington Station and three from Hyde Park. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet, but a few steps away there´s a street full of bars and restaurants. Try the Italian, very good!

Stayed in this hotel during our summer vacation in 8/2013. Suitable for Malaysian as it is close to Bonda Restaurant (served Malaysian ' Nasi Campur' ). Within walking distance to Paddington station and Oxford Street. Room is cramped but suitable for a family of 4. ...London standard I guess !
