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

I stayed in a large double room, very nicely decorated, warm colours, a lot of space, cosy and adorable stucco decoration at the ceiling (original stucco from the turn of the century as I was told). Everything was clean and in good condition. The room had soundproof windows, but it was also quiet with the window open. The staff was... More

Very fine small hotel in the city center. Great breakfast, kind staff and our room was so wonderful! A very good restaurant in the house. 5 Minutes to the city hall. Everything you want to find in a hotel. We enjoyed our stay and come back next year.
