Reviewed 4 June 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Whittier Suite II for our first anniversary. The entire stay was amazing. From fresh strawberries and champaign upon arrival to all kinds of snacks and breakfast good available in the kitchen. I was in Columbus for a meeting on the Friday afternoon of our reservation. My meeting ended two hours early and the guest house allowed me to check in extremely early (@2:00) instead of finding somewhere to stay busy till 4:00 (Thanks a million!!). I love not having to check in at a desk...the electronic check in was very convenient and thee were three our four amazing/elegant restaurants within walking distance.
**I was a little disappointed with the tax associated with this bed and breakfast. The room itself was listed as $275 but I ended up paying a 10% room tax as well as the normal 6.5% sales tax. While this might have been mentioned in the fine print, I was a little taken by surprise. While the room and all the extras was DEFINATELY worth the $321 we spent after taxes and extras, It would have been nice if the GVGH would point out this extra fee/tax. Overall; however, Great experience. I'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: Loved being on the top floor...Whittier Suite 2 has a beautiful bathroom.

GVGuestHouse, Owner at German Village Guest House, responded to this reviewResponded 11 June 2012

Every major metro area in the country assesses a bed tax. Franklin County Ohio levies a 10% 'bed' tax on every hotel room sold, in addition to the State of Ohio sales tax of 6.75%. The 'bed tax' in Chicago is 16.75%, in Cleveland it is 15.25%, and Toledo and Cincinnati Ohio are both at 10.5% making the Columbus rate seem reasonable by comparison. The German Village Guest House is completely transparent to our Guests about this pass-through tax that all hotels must share.

Every year in June we spend a few days in Columbus, and since discovering German Village Guesthouse a few years ago, we stay nowhere else. Five-star accommodations, service, and old-world charm.

Located in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the US (really! Be sure to explore and visit the local branch of Jeni's Ice Creams, a short walk away for probably the best ice cream you've ever tasted). The rooms are large, comfortable, and chic. Much better than staying in a large chain hotel where the windows don't open and you might get stuck in a room next to the ice machine or a noisy elevator. Just stayed for one night. My room overlooked a quiet garden.

My husband and I stayed here during a business trip and loved it. Beautiful gardens, quiet street and nice breakfast. Very private and the rooms are clean. It's 5 minutes to downtown Columbus. We will be back!

The German Village Guesthouse was a perfect getaway for our 20th anniversary. We chose to stay in the Whittier Suite 2 (the upstairs one). We parked our car in front of the house and then walked over to Barcelona for dinner. Afterwards, we stopped at the Giant Eagle to grab a bottle of wine.

We had made all of the arrangements on line and received check-in instructions electronically so there were no problems getting in. The kitchen light was on and it was fully stocked when we arrived. In the bedroom there was a nice note wishing us a happy anniversary, some strawberries and a bottle of champagne. The living room was cozy and we were able to enjoy quality time with each other without the kids....

We strongly recommend the GVGH to other looking for a great getaway or landing spot when looking to enjoy all that German Village has to offer.

Room Tip: If this is your first time to German Village be sure to dine at Barcelona, spend some time at Shille...
