We had a great room on the top floor with a good view of the river (I think this is worth the extra 10€ rather than listen to the traffic of the road especially since I like to sleep with the window open) and extremely comfortable bed. Room is bright and inviting, shower is great although there is no bath... More

Dear Guest, Many thanks for the wonderful 5 star Trip Advisor rating! I am glad you enjoyed the design features especially the way the bathroom and sink are arranged. Just for the avoidance of doubt among the Trip Advisor community - we actually have 3 different bathroom arrangements. One type with the sink in the room, one type with a... More

This place is in a trendy part of Cologne and is modern, filled with art and everything about it was fine. Except for the ventilation..... I had the choice of opening the window and putting up with the noise of trains and traffic or shutting it and using the incredibly noisy air con. I tried doing without either but feared... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for the review, and I am sorry that the air conditioning seemed noisy. If you could please let us know the room number so we can investigate with a Technician I would be grateful. It is possible the filter may have become dirty. It has been extremely hot some days, and certainly I can understand even so,... More

We moved to this hotel after the one we had originally booked turned out to be terrible! The hotel has a nice modern decor throughout with a special emphasis on art - particularly a Korean artist - their artwork is featured throughout the hotel. The room was nice and spacious and had a lovely shower. We ordered room service a... More

We arrived at the hotel after pulling our suitcases from Cologne railway station. It took about 30 minutes max, and you just follow the Rhine, and the hotel is just on the right past the chocolate museum! The hotel itself has a nice reception area with very friendly staff, and we were checked in quickly. Our room was on the... More

We stayed here as part of our summer holiday for the second year in a row as we really love this hotel. Our holiday this year involved travelling quite extensively across the west of Germany, but of course, we couldn't skip beautiful Köln and a visit to the fabulous art'otel! I've reviewed it before, so to avoid repetition, I'll keep... More

This was only a one night stopover from travelling up from Munich to fly back out of Dusseldorf. We are "old hands" of Koln but hadn't stayed here before. Very bright and airy. Not so sure about the promised Rhine view. Can see the Rhine alright but it is mainly the adjacent canal. There is also the nearby bridge with... More

On arrival we were pleased to be told we had been upgraded to a river view room, the room was clean, bright and very modern. It was about a 20 minute walk from the train station and is opposite the Lindt Chocolate Museum. We particularly liked the full length glass windows with great views of the river, the free wifi...

art'otel was the perfect hotel for our recent trip to Cologne. Conveniently situated a short walk along the river from the city centre, we had the best of both worlds: peace and quiet; and easy access to the town and the LanXess arena. The views of the Dom and the river from our room were marvellous. The staff were friendly,... More
