We had unfortunately made a last minute booking and ended up with city inn hotel. I am not usually writing bad reviews, however in this case, I feel compelled to warn other travellers. First of all, reception closes at 10pm, if you do have a late check in, best to advise them beforehand otherwise you will not be able to... More

The location is one subway stop away from the main station, so it is quite good. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant. Hotel CityInn consists of several attached buildings and several entrances. The building where I stayed was attached to the main building, and accessible from it. Another building is approached by a separate entrance. The quality of your stay... More

The hotel is in a great location - next to the WDR-building and is very central for the old and new parts of the city. It is made up of different apartment blocks next to each other so the entrance to your block could be round the corner from the reception. Not a real problem - just odd. The room... More

Our room was to be in another house and after seeing the battered front door, the state of the room, the outlook, the rickety lift and bars on windows, we decided not to stay. I had expected City Inn to be a hotel. We were ofered a room in another house but the attitude at reception put us off. We... More

I went to Cologne for a trade fair so expected to pay higher than usual prices. Booked a triple room for the 2 of us as that's all there was left - €175. Usually when i pay €175 for a hotel i am expecting 4 star plus. On arrival we were greeted by the receptionist, who informed us our room... More

I realised on the taxi to the hotel that I would be arriving after the closing time so called to let them know but there was never an answer and when I got there, everything was shut and no emergency phone number was left in case of late arrival. I managed to find somewhere else fortunately. The next day, the... More

Our son had a room in one building and our friends and my husband and I had rooms in another building.around the corner. It was a good value... More

We stayed here while on a visit to Cologne for the Christmas markets in 2010. The place itself is easy enough to find, being a short walk from the Hauptbahnhof. The Reception was located on one side of the building and the rooms were located to the back of the same or another building (not sure which, as you had... More
