The Columbia Hotel was originally five large Victorian town houses. Professional people, merchants and aristocracy occupied the houses with their families and servants. With large rooms, balconies and contemporary decorative features, the houses were highly valued by the rich and successful. During World War I one of the houses was an American Red Cross Hospital, and after the war the five houses became The Palace Hotel, then The Columbia Club. Renamed The Columbia Hotel in 1975, a continuous programme of renovation and improvement aims to offer modern day requirements, whilst retaining the character of the original Victorian-buildings.
The hotel has an elegant lounge, bar and a large breakfast room. The reception desk is staffed 24 hours a day. At the front desk guests may obtain 24 hour laundry/dry cleaning service, taxis, security for their valuables, free overnight luggage storage, newspapers, maps of the city, brochures for sightseeing tours and leading attractions. The hotel lounge and bar are free wireless broadband hotspots for hotel guests' laptop computers.
Following an NRAC audit of the hotel, we are unfortunately unable to offer overnight bedroom accommodation to guests confined to a wheelchair. Please contact the hotel if you require further information.
