This hotel is modern and sleek with smart décor and situated in an ideal location near to the river and just a short walk to the old town. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are perhaps a little on the small side but are comfortable, extremely clean and very pleasant. All the facilities you would wish are... More

This hotel was a bit of a disappointment. The location, although not far from the Cathedral is in quite a run down area and on a very busy road. At the time of our stay, July 2014, the front of the hotel had scaffolding up as they were painting the exterior and it did not look very attractive. the rooms... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it did us just fine. We had an early flight and went straight to the hotel. Despite the 2pm check in we got there at around 10:30 and we're able to go straight up, which saved a lot of hassle. Rooms are nice and clean with an easy to control air con unit.... More

We (a couple in our 50s) spent a Friday night in May in this hotel and had no regrets with our choice. The hotel is a relatively short walk from the main station and upon arrival we were given a glass of sparkling wine as an introdution. The receptionist was very friendly and we were soon given the "keys" to... More

We (mature couple) really liked the location, i.e. walking distance to the cathedral and rail station. In that same vicinity are a great number of good restaurants. The area around the hotel is full of one-way streets and parking for "over-size" vehicles requires one of the staff to go along and open garage doors. The staff was most accommodating, the... More

I stayed at Hotel Santo with several friends for a bachelorette party, and it was a terrific experience. The hotel is quite modern, with sleek furniture and unique touches throughout. The room was a decent size, as was the bathroom, and the beds were comfortable. Location was decent, perhaps a 10-15 minute walk to city center. The best part about... More

I spent one night at Hotel Santo . The Hotel is small (small lobby ) . However it is very close to the main train station, which make it easy for travel. There are few restaurants in the area. The rooms are very clean and with a simple and “ clean design” the only problem I had, is with the... More

It was easy to find Hotel Santo either by car or 10 minutes walk from the Cologne cathedral/central station. The welcoming was excellent and we could park our car right under the hotel. After checking in we were offered something to drink at the bar in the lobby. The lobby is very modern and fresh with a nice seating area.... More

We stayed two night at Hotel Santo and was very satisfied with our stay. First of all the staff was very helpful in for example making early check-in possible. The rooms are nice and although we had a room facing the street we did not experience noise being a problem. The breakfast had a great variety and most importantly tasty... More

Stayed here for one evening in business. Staff very helpful indeed. Hotel very clean and room very comfortable with great facilities and everything I could possibly need. Good quality towels and bedding which smelled fresh. Would definitely stay here again.
