Everything was great - needs better WiFi though that’s the only thing; great location

It is close to many places specifically the train station, Kensington Palace, hop on hop off stops.. easy walking distance. Lovely!!!

Great location but wish for dinner service. Staff great and dog friendly.

It was warm when we were there and there was no A/C. I wish I would have noticed that before I made my reservation. Hotel could also use an update.

The staff was wonderful! Unfortunately the building is in need of some updates but has a great old world charm to it. Location is the best reason to stay here! The main disappointment was the lack of air conditioning.

Will book with the Columbia Hotel again on our next visit. The hotel feels like something out of a 70's spy novel. Yes, the furnishings are dated, but well maintained and add to the overall appeal of this hotel. The hospitality can't be beat and the location is excellent.

Spacious room for three twin beds; big bathroom; water boiler with coffee, tea, and cookies; tiny TV; adequate continental breakfast.

The location is very good but the hotel needs everything new no wifi no safety deposit box the hotel rundown

Instalaciones viejas. Mal olor. Desayuno continental muuuuuy básico
