Have been at Hotel Kolumbus a few times before, and it has only gotten worse by time. Food is incredibly expensive and really bad. Room service is really poor too. No new towels for 4 days, and not toilet paper for 2 days (even though we asked for it as soon as we ran out). Wouldn't recommend it to friends... More

Reminded me of the early 1990s. Really didn't like it... Also, the pictures look nothing like the real view of the hotel. And you must pay for internet! Also, it takes about 35 mins to get to Alexanderplatz, not the 15 mins they suggest.

Let me just preface that I am a New Yorker, and therefore, perhaps my level of "good" is a bit higher in expectancy that others, but point still stands that I am utterly disappointed with this hotel, the service, and amenities. We came to check in, having pre-booked online. First and foremost, they gave us the wrong room. We requested... More

The worst experience ever in Berlin!!! As soon as I arrived with my 11 month baby, luggage and stroller, nobody welcomed me, not even a smile, not to mention they didn't even care to assist me with luggage and baby. For any request the answer was negative, even for a glass of water- they said I had to eat in... More

End up staying in this hotel because it was one of the few that made reservation for less than 5 days during the new years eve, and would not recommend for anyone. Far from the city, wasn't able to find the hotel with the directions they gave after the reservation, only after a nice lady that lived close by walked... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel on the internet. I´m very sorry that we failed to meet your expectations.

First of all, I was there for New Years Eve, and first thing you can notice is the staff, they were polite and open to the visitors, they printed out my reservation tickets that I got on my e-mail without a hesitation and with a smile on their faces. In one point I had problem with wi-fi(which is 8 euros... More

I visited hotel last Christmas holidays. In general, I liked this hotel. There were a lot of keys from our room - everyone had one of them (in Amsterdam there was another situation, we had only one key and so had to walk together). Our room was clean and there wasn't a bad smell inside it. But the view from... More
