Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

Spent 2 nights there. The building is at least 100 years old. Room is small but it is very well equipped. There is a sink in the room. Toilet is outside and it is very clean. Host was a very warm and friendly lady. Location is pretty central. Zoo station is 10 mins walk that connects u easily to east berlin. Overall a pleasant stay.

We recently stayed at this hotel it was extremely restful and quiet, quirky, slightly cluttered, the furnishings were an eclectic mix nothing matching, but for all that, it was pleasant, the location is superb, but if anyone is visiting in the cold weather, thermals are a must, the room was very cold when we arrived, warming up slightly during the rest of the day, the beds are a let down, I was cold and the quilt was thin, given the low cost of this accommodation, I felt to complain was not in order, but I strongly advise anyone staying to take thick clothes and bed clothes.

Room Tip: Take warm clothes and double up on thermals

If your idea of a great hotel involves large rooms, matched furniture and a well-appointed lobby, this place is not for you. Instead, it offers eclectic furniture and folk art, good beds and a great breakfast served by an extremely personable host. And it is in the heart of Berlin at a great price. Just don't expect a traditional hotel experience. You'll get much more.

This is a great little hotel with AWESOME owners. They were very personable and helpful with getting us situated. The location is superb, 50 meter from the subway and the hop on and off buses. The rooms are vintage and can be a little loud due to hallway noise from others staying there, but not a big deal.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard are nice.

Our family of 8 stayed here for 4 nights in August and loved everything about it. Located on one floor of a beautiful vintage building, Columbus is not a big 4 or 5 star hotel for those who seek room service, indoor swimming pool etc, but you will enjoy the personal service and comfort that you will receive for a very reasonable price. Our family room for 4 was spacious and even had a separate room for the children. Double rooms were equally comfortable and all were totally quiet. Rooms and bathrooms were kept very clean and someone was always around to answer our questions. Since this is a family operation, the owners do care about their clients and make all efforts to accommodate requests. In addition, water pressure was good and beds were firm but comfortable. Chris provides a wonderful buffet breakfast (included) which even includes freshly cooked eggs, sliced meat and cheese; there were no shortage of choices. The location is perfect, just off the Ku'damm, close to Zoo and bus routes, and there are many restaurants on the same street (we tried 3 of them, all equally good and fairly priced). We enjoyed walking the streets at night, very safe area. We had a car and had no problem parking on the street at any time. I highly recommend that you make Hotel Pension Columbus your Berlin base, you will be so very glad that you did.

We have just returned from 4 nights at this hotel. It proved a great base for exploring Berlin. Near the Zoo, great location for transport and shopping. Rooms were clean quiet and comfortable, breakfast was plentiful and staff really helpful. This is a not a 5 star international hotel but just a great place to stay. We would not hesitate to stay here again on any trip to Berlin. Loved it!

We booked 4 nights at this pension but ended up staying 6. The Columbus is really well located for shopping and transportation to major sites. Area is safe for walking at night and has lots of restaurants close by. Easy to get to from Tegel airport...email the pension for directions. The Pension is on the third floor of an 1900's building giving it lots of character. There is a tiny elevator.
The staff was excellent and spoke english without any problem. They were very helpful and accommodating. The hotel is very clean and area is quiet. The breakfast is served daily in a breakfast room and is plentiful. The rooms are simple but comfortable. Some rooms are shared bathrooms some have ensuites. Great place to stay for a reasonable price.
