Stayed here on business trip to Messe. Thought it would be a distance from the exhibition halls, but the team state is so efficient and check it wasn't a problem. The hotel is not very close to the cathedral and it's centre location, but there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby, although not very good quality. Ate one night... More

No major problems with this hotel but (in this price category) it could do better: - no safe in the room - no fridge - breakfast could be better ( poor choice with fresh fruit ) - obscure procedure with breakfast vouchers - breakfast expensive Otherwise, everything's fine. However, for the price I expect to get a little bit better... More

Staff was cooperative and professional. Rooms were small but quiet, clean and with free internet connection. The AC's not worked well, so they sent us a fan. It's in the city center and everything around you.

I've stayed here a few times now, Great location, good attentive staff, rooms really could do with refurbishment, Look at little bit dated. Carpets in room could do with a complete deep clean. Bed pillows are fairly uncomfortable, But generally a pretty nice Hotel.

For the price, the hotel exceeded our expectations. The room on the seventh floor was great, very spacious with an excellent view of the Dom and medieval gate. Only issue was that the room didn't have a safe. The staff were helpful and responsive and the location is fantastic with easy access to public transport and within walking distance of... More

Excellent hotel to stay in, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable and had a great view, also had electronic sun blinds. The breakfast was simply lovely, best selection (hot and cold) I've ever had in a hotel. They even had prosecco to drink. It has a great terrace bar attached to it which we spent most evenings...

We have stayed at this hotel twice now and it is in a good location to walk in to the centre of Cologne or make use of public transport. It is in a lively part of town so can be noisy at night. The rooms are large and we'll appointed, with plenty of parking available.

The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to the cathedral and Old Town and only 5 minutes to the major shopping street. It's surrounded by bars and restaurants, so the location is good. For only €1.90 you can catch the metro anywhere in central city anyway. The room is a good size, clean and tidy, with a small lounge... More

On the Plus side: good location within walking distance of most city-center sites while located on a major avenue, good service, great large room, lots of closet space, many nice details in the room. On the OK side: Barcelo is a hotel chain. And that's the way it feels. Not your hotel if you want something romantic or quaint On... More

This hotel is a big structure in the city centre. The location is great. Very quiet and big rooms. I arrived late in the night and the staff was waiting for me. They provided a good service and didn't make me wait a lot. The hotel is not cheap but it worth the money.
