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.

Very friendly reception with helpful staff. The room was sizeable and we had an amazing view over the city on the 6th floor. Location is superb..next to Rudolphplatz and parking right underneath. Everything is in walking distance so great for a shopping/city trip. One point of critique: WiFi is limited to two machines only...not practical for people with laptops, Iphones... More

Barcelo Cologne City Centre is located in the middle of the city just 10 Euros away from main station by Cab. Rooms though old are pretty large, well maintained with big bathroom. rooms have all amenities from good heating system, mini bar, iron, study table, etc. Famous restaurant, pubs, shopping, all means of transport are with walking distance.

Stayed here for 5 Nights in June for work. Location is good. There were plenty of Bars nearby. Had a nice walk after work into the town and had a good look around. The walk is pleasant but a few miles from the cathedral and back. But like i said, plenty of shops to walk past. Staff were very friendly... More

The nicest hotel in cologne. All people working there are friendly and you feel like home. The Dome is next to the hotel and also the bars and discotheque. Don't need to pay for a taxi as we can walk to go where we wanted.

The hotel is okay, the location is very good, but the rooms would need to be renovated. The windows do not open, the AC did not work extremely well, and I felt in my room like in a sauna. Also the pillows were really unconfortable.
