The hotel might have nicer rooms on higher floors but we were in room 1 on the basement level below ground. Room 1 needs updating, it had a musty mold smell and everything from the tile work to the trim looks like it was installed by amateurs. Don’t get excited for the minibar ours only had one sample size white wine bottle in it. The queen bed was two twins pushed together but one of the twins had a collapsing frame. So as you slept and laid on it your feet were higher than your head. But all of that I could over look if not for the fact that every night my wife and I could hear rats crawling through the walls. The Colonnade has a pretty lobby, and great breakfast but I’d wouldn’t recommend sleeping there.

Bathroom drain clogged, cramped bathroom, poor ptessure from shower, poor temperature control from shower.

Very noisy neighborhood surrounded by pubs. We had kids who just wanted to sleep. We had the apartment next door that they own. The beds were the most uncomfortable I’ve ever slept on. They are like a college dorm room. I paid $860.00 USD for one night and expended much more. There was also trash left everywhere from the previous people. I would not recommend this place.

We had a pleasant experience at the Colonnade. The area around the hotel is nice and quiet. The hotel has very close access to the Underground. Hotel staff were helpful. We’ll come stay here again next time we’re in London.

This is a historic hotel, very nicely appointed. I sprang for the Jr. Suite, as Orbitz had a special the day that I booked, and it was a lovely room with a nice view. Front desk staff were very helpful and always available. Two minutes walk to tube and bus, and a short walk to very picturesque canals.

THE ONLY THING IS THAT THE BED WAS NOT CONFORTABLE ENOUGH. BUT DEFITELY I RECOMEND IT. JUAN

Rooms are very dirty with cat poop on carpets. It feels more like staying as bed and breakfast in a house

It was decent ,you get what you pay for. It wasn't expensive and had anything you'd need . Quiet neighborhood. Only complaint is that the hotel itself is terrible outdated.

Very pretty hotel. Love the decor. We did expierence one day of cold water, but it was a speedbump not a deal breaker.

1. Miserable room (extremely small; in need of repair (paint cracking, curtains old, flooring bad, bed swayback) 2. We had reservation for 6 months and got a pathetic room 3. I'll never use Orbitz again for hyping this hotel 4. If people have a reservation at this hotel, cancel it.

Nothing about this hotel is 4 stars. It was filthy and was not able to stay at the hotel after seeing my room. I don't recommend this place to anyone.

Most of the furniture looked like it was still from the 80s. The hotel needs a serious update. The elevator is clearly an antique and not necessily what you want. My bottom line for a hotel is whether or not I would take a bath in the bath tub. I would not take a bath in this bathtub. There was mold around the caulking around the bathtub. And it did not look particularly clean. I felt uncomfortable at check in. They asked to copy of my passport and they wanted a 50 pound advance on my credit card in case I use the mini fridge. It felt like I was entering a foreign country by staying there . Also thebathroom window is painted shut. And had no idea how to control the heat in the room. The owner of this hotel needs to put some money into it

My friend and I were quite pleased with the Colonnade. It was a restful place to retreat to after full days of sightseeing. Prepare to become adept at using the tube (which is easy) because part of the charm of the hotel is that it is off the beaten path. Many cute cafes for morning coffee and breakfast. Staff was extremely accommodating, though we did have a few miscommunications when it came to making reservations for tours or a restaurant. They are, however, gracious, friendly and dedicated. I highly recommend as a hideaway to be free of the hustle and bustle, and it is an excellent value to have the opportunity to stay in such a posh neighborhood.
