Hotel is starting to show its age but the location is fantastic. Staff are great and really helpful. The rooms are nice and comfortable and small touches like a free bottle of water help set the hotel aside from the lower quality offerings. It feels like a business hotel so fine for 1 night but perhaps look elsewhere if you... More

During our bussiness trip we stayed in the Barcelo Cologne hotel, it is located in the city center. For its service and rooms I recomend it for any kind of travel. The employees in general are very kind.

We stayed here for 3 nights in December 13 for the wonderful Cologne Christmas Markets. The hotel is in an excellent location just across the road from Rudolfplatz christmas market with buses, trams and underground right outside. However, it was a lovely 20-30 minute walk into the centre of the City past another market and excellent shops on the way.... More

Pleasant & friendly welcome.Good large bedrooms (the one we had was a cathedral view on the 8 th floor) with a settee, desk easy chair & large king sized bed. Good, very reasonably priced cocktails in the bar - particularly during happy hour. The downside was the Breakfast - not particularly good - seemed as if the buffet style food... More

Just had a brilliant 3 night stay at the Barcelo, Excellent service and nothing too much trouble. All the staff were really polite and helpful. The room was spotless and good size. Breakfasts were excellent. Location is perfect. Would thoroughly recommend and don't understand why some negative reviews.

I wanted to make a reservation at that hotel through Booking for the Easter days (16th to 21st of April, but when I looked at the room type it only stated "double room" without specifying if it is a twin bed room or a big bed room. I got in touch with the Customer Service of the Barcelo Hotel Group... More

Stayed here while on business. Large comfortable rooms if a little bit dated. There is an underground car park which is 17 euros per day. Good central location. Great cocktails for 5 euros during happy hour! Brauhaus Putz is really close for excellent German food and atmosphere.

I have been staying at this hotel since 2005 (back when it was the Crown Plaza) and have never had a "bad" stay. I just finished another stay at the Barcelo and I am finally at that point where I feel it is time that the owners make an investment and update the hotel. First, the hotel staff are always... More

I stayed in the hotel for only one night. Room is quite big but a little bit old style. I have to say that room is very silent and I had a good rest so by the main point is really good. Breakfast is also ok. Nothing unforgettable but very good position.

I stayed at the Barcelo Cologne city center for a work trip from 02FEB2014 to 08FEB2014. The location couldn't have been better for me- a stone's throw from the KVB (tram station), restaurants, shopping, etc. The room itself was clean but a bit small; however, I was travelling alone so it fit me just fine. The Wifi worked perfectly and... More
