I've stayed in several hotels in this area and none have so far come up to scratch apart from this one, so much so that I booked another week. Maybe it was the quiet ground floor room or the helpful staff and the fact that no-one was hanging around smoking at the front door, but it did me. Even the mouse didn't put me off - harmless little crittur!

Room Tip: Don't book a ground floor room if you're squeamish!

I selected Columbus for its location and travel links and these were both fine.

However, having gone for a single room, it was slightly smaller than expected and so it was problematic to have any luggage and move around at the same time.

In hindsight, should have gone for a slightly bigger double room.

Other than that, all good with my 1 night.

It's close to everything, the underground, Oxford Street, Hyde Park och railway station. Great restaurants near by. Good standard for London with a great breakfast. Quiet area. Just check the flushing first.

We stayed there this week - Room 505 - which happens to be below ground.

The staff were pleasant
The room was fine - good value.

There was no wifi available in the room. Plenty of signal when you come back up the stairs and sit in the lobby. But these days, where all information is on-line and you make phone calls with wifi via WhatsApp, wifi in your room is about as important as running water.

I asked for some form of compensation - just a gesture - but management didn't respond. Perhaps a complimentary breakfast or 10% off. All we heard was, "wifi is broken, being repaired in a few days." But given that the you could pick up wifi just outside the door to the room, it makes you wonder whether this is an ongoing issue with the rooms in the basement.

Important to know about management's commitment to guests in case you run into your own issues during your stay.

Room Tip: avoid room 505 (which happens to be in the basement)

The location of this hotel is amazing, very close to tubes and Paddington station. The rooms are clean. Size is small but was adequate for a double room. Bathroom was small also, had to hunch to fit under the shower (6”2’ tall) so not unreasonable. The room was extremely hot with limited airflow as our room faced an internal courtyard. The fan provided helped, but if hot weather is predicted be aware that this may be an issue. Staff were very friendly.
