“Absolutely Magical”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This was our fourth consecutive experience at this B&B and, par for the course they did NOT disappoint! Such elegance and beauty awaits in the deservedly top-ranked bed and breakfast. The atmosphere is modern yet enchanting. The linens are luxuriously inviting. The kitchen was stocked with delicious fresh fruit and a new touch - homemade yogurt! And need I say more about the shower?! The massive shower head and beautifully tiled shower add a sensual appeal to honeymooners or those, like us, looking for a romantic anniversary getaway! The proprietors even threw in a celebratory bottle of champagne and fresh strawberries upon our arrival! This establishment is absolutely perfect and no detail is missed in this experience. The German Village is the perfect neighborhood in which to nestle this gem of a getaway. We are already looking forward to returning next May the 27th! 2015 HERE WE COME!

We had a very nice 4 night stay here in the Whittier Suite. We had a great time and would stay again.

The bed was amazing, one of the most comfortable ever. Very nice and stylish one bedroom. Also appreciated the generous breakfast items and snacks. We enjoyed staying in the German Village area.

Guests who want a true independent experience will thoroughly enjoy this set up.

Two suggestions: I left the guest house without having ever spoken with a staff member before, during or after our stay. Except once, when I called the number on the reservation, as we were having difficulty accessing the unit. It would have been nice to have had a quick call asking if everything was ok or if we needed anything,

Also, the suites are located in another building on another street. While it plainly states this on the reservation sheet, I am sure we were not the only guest to be confused.

As mentioned above, a few simple changes and this place is a 5.

Love, love, love this place. Very clean rooms. All modern conveniences. Although the house was full, I never saw a soul. We easily walked to Nationwide Arena downtown. Lots of little shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. Would recommend to anyone.

Attention to every detail made our stay at German Village Guest House perfect. The location in historic German Village is unique, the garden is a hidden gem, and the home itself is tastefully decorated. Didn't want to leave!

We visited Columbus and decided to try out a B&B near downtown. The German Village Guest House has modern appointments in a historic old home. Entry comes through a key code and the three suites were open with the key in the door. (The door did not fit well in the frame but it was secure.) The entry opened into a living / dining area with a well appointed kitchen in the next room. Our upstairs suite was large with a comfortable king bed. TV was adequate but we never were able to get the WIFI to work even though we could log on. Bath was clean and comfortable with a shower only. I you wished, there are robes available. The morning breakfast was fresh with fruit, coffee cake and breads, coffee. Very nice. While we are used to contact with the proprietors, we did not see them. We had a nice conversation with a older couple from the UK in the morning. There is a nice garden with a fireplace available but our timing was not right to use it. Parking was on the street in front. Close to the German Village area and easy access to downtown Columbus .

Room Tip: Ask for the Jaeger Street location.

My room was very comfortable and clean. The place was quiet and very accommodating. It is located in a historic part of Columbus and close to the airport and provides a continental breakfast in the morning that was very nice.

There isn't a finer lodging option in Columbus. GVGH is a treat and you won't regret your choice. As a weary road warrior, checking into a Whittier Suite is like turning off the world for a few hours. Remember those days when you were able to stay home for a day and luxuriate in doing nothing? You get to experience that blissful feeling with every stay here.
