The Columbus is a three-star hotel with history located just a couple of blocks away from Medborgarplatsen, a busy square filled with restaurants, shopping, and bars. Walking into the hotel, the first thing you'll notice is a large cobblestone courtyard, where guests enjoy their breakfast in warmer months.

In 1976, the Columbus' 18th-century building was converted into a hotel after having served various purposes, including a brewery, a beggar’s prison, and a hospital. Today, the hotel has 40 standard rooms and 30 budget rooms in the Annexe. Katarina kyrka, a beautiful yellow church, can be seen from some of the rooms. Period artwork depicting scenes of Stockholm hangs on the walls and in the stairwells, reminding visitors of the building's history.

The rooms themselves are beautiful. Standard rooms have high ceilings, classic antique furniture, and spacious en suite bathrooms. The Annexe rooms caught our attention, and not just because of the low rates. The rooms boast a minimalist Scandinavian design and have wood floors, reading lamps, a TV, and large windows. The toilets and showers on the third floor of the Annexe are shared, but very clean.

About the Best Western Columbus Hotel neighborhood

Södermalm, the island that forms the southern part of central Stockholm, is a little out of the way from major sights and museums, but hotels here are cheaper. Once known as working-class, a hipster revolution has turned it into a hot-spot with edgy shops and trendy bars and restaurants. Historic Gamla Stan and Norrmalm are just across the water.
