I stayed here for 2 nights in Sep'14 for business. Only room in Cologne I could book within a reasonable price. Staff and service was good, breakfast was OK. I met quite a few senior colleagues at breakfast!! Not my first choice in Cologne, but my stay was better than last time. It's OK but dated a bit. Room was... More

I stayed at this hotel, unfortunately, September 9-11, 2014. Let me make one thing clear; this is not what you expect of a 4-star hotel. It was very worn down and the bathrooms were right out filthy, see attached pictures. I travel a lot and one thing happened, that I have never, ever experienced in any hotel around the world;...

The hotel is located really well. They serve nice breakfast. The rooms are small but comfortable. The only thing they should change - please bring shampoo into the rooms! I have long hair and that tiny little bottle was not enough for 4 days! The staff is friendly. Wi fi is good

The Barcelo is a bit of a faff to get to from the airport if you are carrying lots of luggage (fortunately we weren't), but it is worth it. The staff were friendly & the rooms spacious with comfortable beds. I would echo what other reviewers have said about making sure your 'non-smoking' room has not been used by smokers... More

This is an average hotel that is more suited to house a large number of guests. The rooms are large and comfortable. The environment is quiet enough. It is also near the tram stops and subway station. This make it conveniet. Make sure you insist on a non-smoking room if you are not a smoker as the first "non-smoking" given... More

I really liked the enormous reception hall in years 50-style. The whole hotel gave me a good feeling and its location is super. It is in the part of the centre where residentals go to eat and less tourists. Therefor the quality of the food is much better than in the Dom area. Also all kind of nice shops, for... More

Went to Cologne for 3 nights in August, never been to Germany before so decided to give it a go. Cologne is a very vibrant city, full of attractions and best of all on the Rhine. There are lots of riverside cafes and restaurants to enjoy combined with boat trips to be taken. The city was holding a couple of... More

We went to Cologne for the Christmas markets last December. Ideally, we were looking for a hotel which provided easy access to the Christmas markets and the city centre attractions. Although the hotel is situated 20-25 minutes walk from Cologne Cathedral and the main railway station, Koln Hbf (Thalys train terminal from Brussels ), there are plenty of amenities around... More

We stayed at the Barceló for four nights and had a great time. Check-in and reception services were professional, attentive and helpful throughout. It's conveniently located for transport at Rudolfplatz, but you can walk to the Old Town and Rhine and the main shopping areas in twenty minutes. It's a level walk. Just remember that Germans wait until the green... More
