  • I make a point of supporting independent bookstores wherever I travel. It is possible that The Book Loft is my favorite yet! The courtyard is so pleasant. The storeā€™s layout is unique and fun to explo...  more »
  • The Book Loft is an experience not just a shopping trip. You can plan to tour by going room to room, or find specific treasures. My husband and I actually went for a Valentine's date and spent 2 hours...  more »
  • Absolutely not to be missed if you love independent bookstores. A labyrinth of books, greeting cards, and ephemera. A bit tricky to navigate; I prefer more organized shelves, but a great fun place to ...  more »

  • If you're a book lover, this is the place to go. It's a maze of books. Quite cramped with thousands of books in a small space (small 32 rooms) but still well organized. You can find almost all genres of books - fiction, non-fiction, cook books, biographies, travel and a lot more. And all of these are sold at highly discounted price. There's a cafe right outside this place if you want to relax for a while. However, parking is a problem here as you only get 2 hours parking in the lanes of German Village. Unless you shell out big bucks in the validated parking lots, you would need to juggle around your car. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the German Village area.
  • Great place to visit. I'm not an avid reader of books, but this place makes me want to read books again. If you ever want to escape into a great book, then you NEED to come here. When you think you have reached the end of the book loft, you just might be surprised. You might find yourself in lost in a good book at the Book Loft.
  • Setting of the bookstore is great within historical German Village. The selection of books is amazing, as the store takes up an entire city block. Prices are high when it is compared other local Columbus bookstores. Also, it is a very uncomfortable environment with tight spaces. No place to sit and look through a book. Always bumping into others. A challenge to navigate the store. I know others love it, but it is not my top choice of Columbus bookstores.
  • Great selection of books. There is a HUGE amount of books here in this cute maze-like building. Easy to get lost (which is not a terrible event in this case.) great fiction selection, found 3 of the 4 fiction books I came in looking for. Good philosophy section too.
  • This is an amazing bookstore! 36 rooms of books in a building that stretches the length of a block. The building itself is an adventure! The book selection is also great and there are many books here that are not easy to find. A great place to explore when visiting German Village!

Where to stay in Columbus

Because Columbus serves as one of the country's major convention centers, its downtown offers comfortable rooms at all price levels. Hotels in the central part of town not only keep you close to all of the city's major attractions, but also provide you with modern amenities that include 24-hour room service, fitness centers, spa services, and on-site restaurants and bars. To stay in the city for a fraction of the price, consider an inn or motel near theĀ Interstate exits.
