“Very good location”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Very good location, few steps away from Warwick avenue station (underground), and the next station is Paddington, where you can take a connection train to Heathrow. Pretty and quiet neighborhood, very nice staff, very clean. I would definitely come back. The only negative thing is that the price doesn't include breakfast, wich is expensive in the hotel.

We went to meet family and booked the hotel through a deal they were promoting for bed, continental breakfast and afternoon tea. The area the hotel is in was really pretty, peaceful and relaxing. The hotel is a two minute walk from the tub which was perfect.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a garden view suite which is room 6. It is large with a good sized bathroom and...

After seeing good reviews, I thought this hotel would be nice -- it's not. I would describe this as a 2-star hotel trying to be a 3-star; nothing more. It is very small and outdated, with tiny awkward rooms. Amenities and customer service are also subpar -- be prepared to wait if someone else is talking to
the ONE front desk clerk; and don't expect any nice complimentary gestures.
Overall, very disappointing.

Thank you for taking the time to write the review about us on Tripadvisor.
Quite frankly I am very surprised by it's content as you will see from the many many reviews we have on Tripadvisor we are complimented on amenities, service and the quality of the hotel.
Furthermore we provide complimentary mineral water and newspapers daily as well as free wi-fi so I feel your comment 'don't expect any nice complimentary gestures' is a little harsh

This must be London's best kept secret! Brilliant if a little dated hotel very near Warwick Avenue tube. 5 minutes from Paddington. My room - 34 - a studio suite was just perfect! Staff were deliciously helpful! I am so glad I booked, via lastminute. Highly recommended.

I spent two 'last minute' nights at the hotel, which made it good value.

It's about 2 minutes' walk from Warwick Avenue on the Bakerloo line, so well-situated to get into central London, and very close to Paddington and Marylebone stations. The area - Little Venice - is really charming, and felt very safe for evening walks or morning runs. There's a little high street of shops about a 5 minute walk away (Boots, etc) and a Tesco Express service station too. Not that you'll be short of nice pubs or restaurants either.

The staff were enormously welcoming, instantly going online to find out when Boots closed on a Sunday when I arrived without contact lens solution, and offering to take my bag to my room to save time while I nipped out. Throughout my stay, they always said hello - something so often missing in big chain hotels - and asked if I had everything I needed.

The room, at the very top of the hotel, wasn't huge but was well designed and equipped (bar a bottle opener!). It was quite hot on arrival, but the air con worked well and fast, so made for a pleasant temperature on an otherwise very warm day. The room and bathroom were impeccably clean, although beginning to look just a tiny bit tired, and I was amazed to find that the bedding - which had a few tiny spots of blood on it, from failed attempts to open a beer bottle with a metal comb! - had been changed on the return on day 2. Water in the room was a nice touch too.

I'd definitely stay again. The geek in me also very much liked that the hotel was the birthplace of Alan Turing. Nice blue plaque outside ;-)

We try and make the hotel a home away from home so I was very pleased to read that you found the team so welcoming and helpful.
I have also noted how attentive the housekeeping team were, we can offer openers next time so you don't have to use a comb!
I hope we have an early opportunity to welcome back to The Colonnade and the Little Venice area.

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...

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.
