Welcome to The Columbia.
A Hotel, Event and Photoshoot Space in Lancaster Gate.

The Columbia is a proudly independent hotel, bar and event space in the heart of West London. Set across five Victorian townhouses built in 1856, the hotel has a rich and spirited music history and has been a home to touring bands on the road since 1975.

Enjoy natural wines and cocktails in The Bar & Lounge, or for something more intimate book one of our Private Lounges on the 1st floor. Whether you’re looking for a place to crash for the night after a party, or keen to stay a little longer while exploring London, we have 83 affordable hotel rooms in all shapes and sizes.

Welcome to Columbia Hotel London

Parties & Events

From private lounges which can host 6 to 30 people or larger event rooms for parties up to 250 guests, we’ll have a room for your event. It’s a minimum-spend approach for our parties with no hire fee, so you can save your money for the more important things (like food and drink). For private dining, we have a range of intimate rooms for hosting dinner parties from 10 to 60 guests. Plus, we’re a stone’s throw away from Paddington, Lancaster Gate and Notting Hill, handy for those travelling from across London and further afield.

Hotel Bedrooms

Singles for singles, or quads for sharing and everything in between. Our hotel rooms come with free Wi-Fi, tea, coffee and daily housekeeping. If you’re visiting London, or just want a place to rest after one of our events, you’ll struggle to beat our price and location. Oh, and we like dogs, so they’re welcome too.

Photography Location

We are not just a hotel, but a leading photography and videography location. With over 6 dedicated location spaces, our five Victorian townhouses are perfect for a unique shoot location. Each with rich original Victorian architecture, high ceilings and south-facing windows offering amazing natural light throughout the day. Our clients include some of the largest production houses, brands and magazines with shoots ranging from editorial to large feature films.
