Good points. Convenient location for city, helpful staff, comfortable beds Bad points Parking is 17 euro per day, air con in both rooms is switched off in winter, we had 2 rooms and both were very hot, Noise from location (people and vehicles) even.at 3am, is dreadful. Bathrooms need a makeover as look like somthing fom 1976

We arrived early as check-in is usually from 3pm, so left our bags behind the reception desk - the staff are very friendly and accommodating. We were very impressed with the hotel and the breakfast was great, something for everyone with full English or full continental with breads yoghurts fruit etc it was really very nice - I cant really...

Stayed in this hotel from Saturday, 13th December to Wednesday, 17th December. Very quick to check in and staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is very central to all the markets with one been just a couple of minutes away. One thing to note the bar in the hotel is very expensive - we only drank there one night... More

Great location, we stayed for 3 nights as we were in Cologne for the Christmas markets. The children's market is just across the street, the other 6 are all within a 20 minute walk. Our room was on the 10th floor with a great view over the city. The beds are very comfortable, the pillows however are standard German and... More

The hotel's location on Rudolphplatz is a ten minute walk from the large department stores and shopping areas of the city centre and conveniently, there are trams and a U Bhan station across the road. We, two couples, arrived at 1pm and were allocated rooms on the seventh floor. We had previously requested an early check-in as the normal check-in... More

I really cannot understand some of the negative reviews, unless the writers have only previously stayed in zillion star places in Dubai or Singapore. The Barceló is a perfectly reasonable European city centre hotel, on the good side of average. It is clean and comfortable and we found the décor of the public rooms attractive and relatively modern. Our bedroom... More

We have just returned from a two night stay in this hotel and could not fault it. Large rooms with comfy beds, clean and well equipped. Break fast was in a comfortable, bright dining room: food plentiful,good selection and quality. Staff were helpful too. Location was also perfect, about a 20 minute walk from the Cathedral. We found some interesting... More

Spend one night at this hotel with friends for Weihnachstmarkt. The hotel is old and is crying for refurbishment. I have stayed at other Barcelo hotels and they are all clean and modern. Well this is the opposite. The rooms are pretty spacious tho and so are the beds BUT you will only find a twin duvet on your double... More

Shabby hotel with shabby customer service. If you are looking for a hotel that looks like a Hilton from the 70's, want Basil Fawlty rudeness and don't want to spend more than 70€ then this just might be the place for you. What really let's it down is the customer service - the manager was rude and uncommunicative and took... More

Two nights for Cologne Christmas markets with friends. We Eurostarred and the taxi from the station for 4 was a pleasing 10 Euros. The hotel has proper big reception (excellent English spoken) and room service (although one request, for more teabags, got lost somewhere). The room was spacious, clean and comfortable if getting a little tired. Two single duvets and... More
