We have stayed at this hotel when it was part of the Barcelo Group. The hotel has a fantastic positioning next to Rudolfplatz - so getting to anywhere in the city is then very easy. The rooms are in quite good condition - the beds are very comfortable and big - however the bathrooms are looking in need of refurbishment... More

We stayed here in November when it was Cologne Barceló City Centre. I emailed the hotel prior to our visit to ask for a nice room with a view, which upon arrival we got. It was a large room. The bathroom was a bit dated but fine. Location near to tram and walking distance to lots of things was super.... More

We got off to a great start, the hotel was easy to find and our check-in experience, late at night, was absolutely perfect. We asked for a non-smoking twin room and were delighted to get a room on the 8th floor, with two large beds and an amazing view over Cologne. Certain aspects of the hotel are dated - the... More

Its a shame to see a hotel in such a state. The premises are run down, the garden has not seen a gardener for months. The hotel is in such poor state and is begging for a refurbishment. The staff just does not bother, they spend more time goofing around other than assisting their guests. The Location is great though,... More

This hotel used to be the Crowne Plaza, and in it's heyday it must have been a great place to stay. Unfortunately its heyday was the 1960's, and it has not been updated since then. The carpets are frayed and stained, the air conditioning loud and weak, the beds are uncomfortable, and you will trip on the door frame to... More

The rooms were big, the bathroom was old and water/steam did not drain correctly. The location was pretty great (not hard to achieve in such a small city). The negatives included having to ask for an extra blanket twice... they appeared to be using single/king single blankets? That is not acceptable for a queen/king sized room in the middle of... More

Chose this hotel in a hurry due to its location, but will not come again. Very worn, stained and partially ripped furniture, uncomfortable bed and unmotivated staff. Broken window blinds and while airconditioning seems to exist, its also broken. Breakfast just about ok, nothing impressive. Seems to target English speaking tourists mainly.
