My husband and I and our adult daughter stayed here for 5 nights. Booked on Booking.com and somehow booked a "first class category" room. Maybe that was a result of booking a room for 3 adults. Room rate one night was 157 Euro and then 134 the remaining nights. In addition there was a 50 Euro first class charge each... More

This hotel is very well positioned. The location is OK, the breakfast was huge and tasty. The rooms are fine, big and cosy... I enjoyed everything, my staying was almost perfect.

Stayed for 11 days for a fair at the Messe. Hotel was pretty good with good clean rooms, with opening windows. Hotel situated in a busy and noisy area, so ok to find somewhere to eat, but can be a bit rowdy at night. A good point was the great breakfast selection, bad point the wifi cost of 14€ per... More

This is a nice hotel, even by American standards. The room was large and had good amenities. I think the whole week I was there, they were having some sewage issues though, as it smelled of nasty raw sewage in the lobby area EVERY DAY!!! Other than the odor, the hotel was great and only about 90 seconds from Starbucks... More

I stayed at the Lindner for a fair in Cologne. The location of the hotel is really fantastic in the middle of the City, the rooms are very nice. Although it is a bit loud to the back as there is a street with a lot of bars and restaurants. Very good breakfast buffet and nice staff. It is a... More

I have been staying at this Cologne hotel a number if times on business trips.

The hotel is reasonably comfortable, but I had too many niggles to enjoy my stay. The room was uncomfortably cool, and I couldn't find a way to turn up the heat. There was AC but it didn't seem to change the room's temperature. Coworkers in other rooms had the same issue. The room's door was very hard to close, which... More
