“Very Pleasant London Hotel”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We spent six days at The Colonnade in late May 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. The location is very close to a Metro station (Warwick Avenue) so getting around in London was easy--a good thing because it was a pretty rainy week. The hotel is located in a charming neighborhood known as Little Venice, named for its colorful canals and houseboats. We chose a suite, so our room on the fourth floor was quite spacious, and the bath was more than adequate. The elevator gave the impression of being as old as the hotel; it required some effort to get used to the abrupt stops the to which the elevator was prone. The hotel staff was quite helpful, although some members of the front desk staff seemed to have recently arrived in London and lacked much knowledge of the city. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was very satisfactory. We never tried the hotel's restaurant for dinner so we can't comment on that, but there is a group of small restaurants (three or four) just around the corner from the hotel that offered a variety of cuisines. We had very nice meals at three of those restaurants. All in all we found the hotel to be a very pleasant place to stay during our sojourn in London.

Room Tip: We didn't see any of the smaller rooms, but our friends said that their's was a bit small...

Thank you for taking the time to write the great review about us on Tripadvisor and we are delighted that you enjoyed your 6 day stay so much.
We do have some new members of the front desk team who are in training and what we try and ensure is that they work with someone who is already trained.
I hope we have an early opportunity to welcome back to The Colonnade and the Little Venice area.

Decided to stay at the Colonnade in celebration of a friend's birthday. A big group of girls (10 in total), the hotel accommodated us perfectly and we stayed in the Apartment. The rooms were beautifully decorated and well furnished. The bed sizes were huge and we all enjoyed a very comfortable night's sleep. The bathrooms were really clean, spacious (and as you can imagine, a group of 10 girls getting ready and dressed rated this very highly) and fully stored with bathroom amenities.
The staff were highly attentive to our needs. At one point, my friend required a safety pin for her dress and the staff put in every effort to hunt one down for her, despite the slightly odd request. We felt well looked after by the Colonnade staff.
We ordered afternoon tea upon arrival which consisted of a delicious selection of sandwiches, scones, macarons, cakes and more. We also ordered breakfast in the morning and I would highly recommend the pancakes.
I could not recommend this hotel more. It is in a great location (a short walk from Warwick Avenue underground station) and the service is second to none. The resident hotel cat is also an adorable plus. Would love to come back again!

I've stayed at the Colonnade hotel recently and would like to share my experience with you. It is a lovely hotel slightly of the tourist track but located in a beautiful residential part of London called Maida Vale. I stayed in a suite which wasn't very big but comfortable enough to enjoy it. The hotel might luck some luxurious touches however be assure that the staff will make up for it. I stayed there a night before getting married and everybody was absolutely fabulous and helpful.

Stayed here for a night on a theatre trip. The hotel is in a lovely location - Little Venice is great for wandering and for lunch by the canal. We were greeted very warmly and shown to the Sigmund Freud suite which is really nice with the bed on a mezzanine. All in all really recommend this place for ambience location and facilities.

We came across this hotel on Travelzoo. Needing a hotel near to Regents Park and having read the reviews on TripAdvisor it seemed to be ideal.

I recall reading on one of the previous reviews that they were reluctant to rave about this hotel because they didn't want lots of other people knowing about this lovely hotel and I must admit we felt a bit the same.

However it seemed unfair not to write this review to praise both the staff, who were extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel which we found lovely. The hotel rooms we had were extremely quiet, the beds were very comfortable with lovely pillows and bedlinen and with air conditioning we had a really good nights sleep. The magazines provided in the rooms were also much appreciated.

It's also very convenient for Warwick Avenue tube station which is just up the road and Little Venice which is a very pretty area where you can take a waterbus to Camden or London Zoo which was fun.

We would like to thank the porter who was so helpful when we arrived, took our families to the two rooms and then returned with extra bottled water for us and ice for my son and daughter in law, nothing was too much trouble, unfortunately we don't know his name but thank you.

We look forward to staying here again soon.

Room Tip: We read previous reviews and went from there. We had room 5 and room 14 (a suite) both overlooked t...

Found this hotel by chance on the internet and after checking it out on Tripadvisor decided to book.

It's a stones throw from Warwick Avenue tube and very easy to find. We were given a warm welcome and shown to our rooms. My husband and I got a double bed but our friend who was travelling on her own got a much larger bed all to herself! Slightly confusing but nonetheless the rooms were lovely with welcoming music when you entered the room.

We didn't sample the breakfast having decided to go for a walk along the canal and get something to eat but I'm sure it would be as nice as everything else. Behind the hotel is a little avenue with shops and a really nice pub with dining rooms that we would recommend.

We will definitely be returning and would recommend to any one who wants a hotel in a lovely area but be able to get a tube into the hustle and bustle of the city centre easily.

Stayed at this hotel for a wedding in Little Venice. Great location (a couple of minutes from tube station). Staff were welcoming. We arrived early and the hotel stored our bags while we went for lunch. When we arrived back later, we were shown to our room by a friendly member off staff who explained some of the history of the hotel. Our bags had been transferred to our room which was great.
We stayed in room 10 which was 1 floor below street level. The room was clean and had air-conditioning. The only problem was that every 5-10 minutes there was a loud rumbling noise which I expect is cause by the nearby tube station! This noise went on till after midnight and started again early on Sunday morning. This did not result in a peaceful night's sleep!

Such a shame as a lovely hotel without this problem.
