Had to stay for a night on a business trip. Our team assistant booked this hotel assuming the closeness of the hotel to Cologne Hbf and our client might help us save some time. It actually did to an extent but the rest is below average. In a nutshell: Average rooms with poor bed & pillow quality and supposedly sound-proof... More

This hotel is about as close as you can get to the train station. This positive turns out to be its negative. The good: The staff was very attentive and helpful. The breakfast was very good and the overall cleanliness was good. It's location is great for the business traveler as you are right at the train station and the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in March 2014. Everything was basic and acceptable however pillows were too thin and the double bed was small! Bathroom was not the best as it looked like it needed a renewal. It was old. Breakfast was lovely and breakfast room was nice.

I stayed at the Guennewig as my base while at the Euroshop trade show in Duesseldorf. A great stay. The hotel is perfect if you just need a clean comfortable room and a good breakfast. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was a great start to the day. Overall very happy, its not 5 stars but very clean... More

Repeat visit to this hotel right next to Cologne Hbf, managed to get an upgrade this time to a larger room which was really spacious. Breakfast room has been updated into more of a bar-style, which is a bit of a surprise but the overall price/quality of this hotel sets the standard for in this city. Although the rooms are... More

The most notable feature of this hotel is its amazing location. Previous posts have mentioned this but I don't feel that they've done it justice! It is literally on the doorstep of Cologne HBF train & bus stations (the rooms are well sound-proofed) and a two minute walk from the Cathedral, which can be reached easily by walking through the...

Stayed there on a business trip that happened to be when there was a carnival in town. Which meant that they played banging german techno-folk music at the hotel bar until into the night. When I approached the staff about the fact that I could not sleep because of the noise they were extremely unhelpful and I even got hung... More

The Kommerz is located next to the main train station in the center of Cologne. Could not be more conveniently located for visitors attending trade functions at Koelnmesse located across the Rhine. Five floors - perhaps 100 rooms. The rooms are clean, very small, and very functional. Seriously hot water! Rates include a very good breakfast buffet - very substantial... More

Love the location 1 1/2 blocks from the train station. Plenty of shops and restaurants all within walking distance from the hotel. The greetings received when arriving at the Hotel were wonderful, and they spoke English which was a great help to us. Rooms were very friendly and comfortable. Breakfast was the best I have had in a long time... More

This must be one of the best hotels in Germany. Had the opportunity to go in this hotel for tens of times and the service and rooms were always excellent. Breakfast super too.
