I usually stay in larger or ‘chain’ hotels but took a chance on Hotel Columbus due to a last minute trip. The hotel room was basic, it was immaculately clean and comfortable. The bonus was the continental breakfast included in the price! Will definitely use again.

Having paid approx £60 for the night we weren't expecting much and just needed somewhere quite close to sleep after the theatre. The double room was small and basic but met our needs. Continental breakfast was ok but nothing special and not a great deal of choice. However we noted that there seemed to be a problem with the door. In the morning I was unable to use my card to swipe into the main entrance after popping outside. Wasnt a big deal as the staff let me in. I then noticed it didn't swipe the bedroom door and discovered the door was actually not locked and would not lock. Wasnt a big deal as checked out soon after but folk should check that their door is locked as obviously a bit worrying that anyone could walk in. We did highlight this at checkout and staff apologised and said they would look into it.

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your experience at Hotel Columbus. We are sorry to hear you had some difficulties using the key to open the main door, as well as your bedroom's. Please note that sometimes the key can be demagnetized, when it is kept next to a mobile phone, for example. In regards to your comments about the bedroom door, I would like to ensure you that, as the staff mentioned upon check-out, we have already spoken to our maintenance person and, all bedroom doors have been reprogrammed. We hope you will consider staying with us again in the future, so that we can provide you with a better stay. Regards, Yenny Souto Lopez General Manager

We booked this hotel for a last minute trip to London, I was pleasantly surprised by the low price for a hotel in such a good location. We ended up within walking distance of the theatre we visited as well as being close to a number of underground stations. The staff were lovely and extremely helpful. We only stayed for one night and they offered us luggage storage at checkout so we didn't need to cart our things around for the day.

I stayed at this hotel for its location and its relatively low price. I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly welcome I received. I arrived before check in time and the team took my bag and brought it to my room during the day. The room matched the description on line and it was quiet and clean. Breakfast was fine and the team were really helpful. I would recommend this small but friendly hotel to anyone looking for a well-located hotel that is not too expensive.

I personally feel this hotel is average i will breakdown the good and bad points Good: 1) you get a reasonably comfy bed and pillows with an extra blanket in the wardrobe 2) the heating is decent for winter months and the desk and kettle feature is good 3) The location is brilliant being in Paddington in zone 1 London for such a decent price in winter moths. 4) The staff are helpful 5) the room is cleaned each day, with towels available which are clean and the bathroom shower and toilet works fine. Bad/things to be aware of: 1) the stairs are wonky and strangely arranged but this is a personal preference, NO lift available. 2) There is breakfast and this is complementary with the room but it is a continental breakfast so keep that in mind. 3) the bathroom is tiny but I personally found it ok for short term stay. 4) The wifi was shaky, kept going on and off but there is two wifi passwords and therefore two networks available. Overall I find the hotel decent for a short term stay in London and definitely not a bad price. I know I appreciate honest and well constructed reviews of hotels I plan on staying in so I made this one, hope it serves you well.

Dear Customer, On behalf of the Team at Hotel Columbus, I would like to thank you for your review and for mentioning the good and bad points, according to your own experience. As you have very well explained, we do not have a lift. The reason for this is the structure of the building. Unfortunately there is no space to install one. In regards to the breakfast, we can only offer Continental buffet, as we do not have cooking facilities at the hotel. As for the Wi-Fi connection, we will ask our IT person to have a look at it, to ensure there is good signal. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Best regards, Yenny Souto Lopez Generla Manager
