I stayed 7 nights at this hotel. The room was spacious, clean and freshly renovated. The location is not bad, you have to spend 7 mins by walking to the Rathaus. I did not have any problems with the Internet in my room. The breakfast was very good. There was only one small shortcoming - a very noisy fan in... More

We stayed 2 nights at Urban Stay Hotel Columbia. I had booked the B&B under the name Pension Columbia but I found out via email communication with the new owner that the name had in fact changed and that also there were several changes being done to the property. I have to say that we had a very good stay... More

The proprietors have just taken over recently and already they are doing a wonderful job. It has been freshly renovated. The things we consider most important: clean, good location, good hosts - all A+ Annasophia is a lovely owner, and the housekeeper is top notch as well. The room was spotlessly clean, they were helpful and prompt whenever we needed... More

Pension Columbia was a relaxing stay for us. We stayed for two nights. The neighborhood was quiet and the location is very convienent - not too far from public transportation, restaurants and grocery stores. The best part was the helpfulness of the staff. They went out of their way to help us find our way around the city, recommended things... More

Spent a week at the Pension Columbia and was very pleased - the location is ideal (close to transit, Ringstrasse, university, with easy access to the Innere Stadt and all that is there). This would be my first choice on my next visit to Vienna. Rooms are clean, and comfortable, with firm, comfortable beds. I had what was advertized as... More

We spent five nights here. Our first impression was not good. We used the S-bahn, the U-bahn and our feet to arrive at a poorly lighted entrance to a darkened building. We, however, were buzzed into the building by a person who told us an envelope had been left for us upstairs. We found a welcoming note and a key... More

Stayed 4 nights at this guest house. Good location close to the center of Vienna yet in a quiet neighborhood. Walking distance to the tram lines and a couple of subway stations, as well as the Innere Stadt. Staff were helpful, including organizing an early morning taxi pick-up to the airport. A simple breakfast spread was included as part of... More

I just came back from Vienna yesterday, after staying 2 nights at Pension Columbia. Rooms are big, very clean and very accommodating. Location it's fantastic as the hotel is very close to downtown, more or less reachable walking within 10-15 min. When we arrived though there was nobody at the reception, they had left keys and instructions at the entrance.... More

We had a nice room with a lot of space and nice colours (be had booked the room type 'large'). This guest house offers very good value for money. The staff was very very helpful and friendly. The location is excellent (city center). In short: we really loved this place!
