The hotel was perfectly located for walking to the Christmas markets and with easy access to trams to travel to and from the airport. Our room was spacious with room for a baby cot for our daughter. Wi-fi was very slow in the room so we always sat in the lobby instead to access emails. Unfortunately the sauna wasn't working... More

Booked myself a room in the rush on HRS.de as I found out that I have to fly to Cologne for business rather sponiously. Well... My own fault. This hotel is just a real nightmare.. Dated would be a compliment. Mould in the bathroom and dust from the past decade in the AC. Maybe that's why it didn't work? Cannot... More

A great location on Rudolphplatz, perfect for heading into the city. This hotel clearly needs major investment - but beyond that there are issues. Our room had only 1 single duvet for a double booking. We only noticed this in the early hours of the morning when we returned to the room - and a staff member said 'What do... More

I was looking forward to my stay at this hotel; meeting up with a friend from Manchester for a night on the town, but as I approached the hotel, I got a sinking feeling. The exterior was not what I would have expected for a **** hotel. Entering the Hotel itself, it did seem a little grander that the exterior... More

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
