When I read some of the reviews of the hotel and the surrounding area - to be honest I was worried that we had made a mistake in booking this hotel. However, having now stayed there, we thought the hotel was absolutely fine. We found the the service first rate from reception, the dining room and the foyer bar. The... More

gecenin 1 in de uyandığımda odamda birisi vardı. kalkıp müdahale edene kadar kaçtı. tabiki cüzdanımla birlikte. resepsiyonu aradım hemen gelin diye. durumu anlatırken az sonra aşağıdan aradılar cüzdanı bulduk diye. hırsız elini kolunu sallayarak girip çıkıyor. kapıları açabiliyor. polis hiç bir şey yapmadı. sadece bir protokol düzenledi o kadar. otel kamerasında adamın çıkışı net gözüküyor ama polis 2 gün sonra...

We stayed one night at this hotel and found it to be value for the money (£54 in Expedia). The hotel is a bit dated but unlike other reports our room was clean, warm and all the amenities worked just fine. The hotel is easy to get to via taxi or tram from main station and is only ten minutes... More

If you like rude staff and freezing cold rooms this is your place. The Hotel desperately needs a refurbishment, it is very old and all three of our rooms had broken heaters. I had to put hot water running in the bathroom to get some kind of heat out in to my room, only problem is that the steam started... More

I stayed 2 nights at Hotel Cologne Rudolfplatz for business. This is my third stay (of course it was Barcelo at that time) and the quality is decreasing every year. At may first stay which was three years ago I guess it was a good reliable Business Hotel. This time unfortunately I do not have anything positive to say besides... More

The hotel lobby is very spacious. Receptionists are reasonably helpful. Slippers/ kettle are available only upon request. No toothbrush / paste available. Decor and carpet are old and stained. Quite and comfy bed. 7 to 8 mins walk to neumarket, 20 to Dom. The shopping area is just right across the street, more local boutique than big brand in the... More

Like many of the other reviews, the location is great and the breakfast is great but the rooms are so-so. Stayed here on business with a group. The room was tired; carpet tattered and worn, place had a funny smell to it, they didn't refresh my bottled water. My room was right off the elevator lobby and I was concerned... More

I've stayed at this Hotel a few Times, Very useful for the centre of Cologne. However it has been renamed the Cologne Hotel. So to justify this you now have to pay €16.35 City Tax on Check out! Plain ridiculous. Never have I paid this before.The rooms are in dire need of refurbishment, Corridor carpets have obviously never been cleaned.... More

Lovely hotel. First class service. Massive hotel room with excellent views, very spacious, separate study area plus sofa. Right on top of some Christmas markets (Rudolph Platz and Christmas Avenue) and good eating venues. Would definitely stay again. Very impressed with service and hotel in general.
