We booked two nights in the Lindner city hotel. The hotel is situated near the lovely belgium district. A vibrant district with bars, restaurants and small cute shops. We traveled with our babygirl (10weeks). We were surprised that we became a room with a few steps in it. inconvenient when entering and leaving your room with the pram. When checking... More

Dear Philomeen, thanks for your review. You are right, rooms with stairs are only located in the back of the hotel. But with room in the entrance area and before the stairs we thought you could place the pram there. We are sorry that this idea wasn't as good as expected. Nevertheless we are happy that you enjoyed the stay... More

The hotel facilities are great. Breakfast was amazing! But, the staff was a but too poshy and a little rude. For example, our son made a mess at the Belgian waffle area and spilt a little, by mistake of course. They did not take it well and made a comment about a t the day after. I forgot my room... More

A top toier hotel near the cathedral, this is an excellent place to stay. It is close to the sites but also to shopping. The garage it s a little tight to get into, but the rooms are great. The beds are nice, the rooms a nice size, and the breakfast is excellent. Beware of cute trick they play at... More

Probably I was used to high/excellent services of hotels in Dubai... So I should not compare it with EU hotel services. Food was Good (had breakfast, and dinner), staff was helpful. I had a problem with my mobile roaming so I was forced to ask for the hotel wifi for the whole week... WIFI is not free btw :) One... More

Nicely located near Belgian neighborhood (5 min walk), Close to city centre as well (10 min). Great, well assorted breakfast. Quiet well equipped rooms. Hotelspecials deal was good value for money. Köln city tax is ridiculously high, no idea what value I get out of that as visitor.

Hi Killa2Milla, thank you for your great feedback and your visit. We love especially that you enjoyed the friendliness and the breakfast offer. And you are right with the guess concerning the room rate which depends on seasons. It would be really nice to welcome you again - proabably during a favourable period. So long! More

Over the past ten years I have stayed in many different places in cologne from B&Bs, cheap 1/2 star places to five star Hotels such as the Hilton and the utterly bad Mondial Cologne.

I can't really fault the hotel in any way.... room and bathroom were large and spotlessly clean as were the communal areas that we saw. Staff helpful and spoke excellent English as my German is limited to say the least. Bed large and comfy. Excellent location for the Christmas markets and train station and reasonably priced £90ish a night. The... More

We stayed here over New Year's. The hotel is well located on the main road (easily reachable from the train station and Dom), and also incredibly close to the main shopping district and the Rheine.
