- The hotel is close to Cologne central station and Cathedral, basically within 3 to 5-min walk - The buffet breakfast is excellent - in fact the best in my Germany trip - Room is okay in size, though I think the equipment/facility can be improved e.g. no slippers

The location of the hotel is very handy - right next to the cathedral and train station and about 10 minutes to the main shops and riverside. On arrival into our room on the third floor, it smelled of smoke and as a non-smoker found this vile. So had to spend a bit of time with the windows open to... More

This hotel is very central around Dom Cathedral and Central Train Station, therefore very suitable for moving around with ease during any visit to this specific area. If visiting Koelnmesse clearly this option is one of the best, as it is very close. Hotel service is very helpful and attentive based on my experiences.

This hotel is located right next to the cathedral. The church does tend to ring its bells quite often......this hotel is not for light sleepers. You can walk to most of the sights. We had a pretty view and the front staff were very friendly. The hotel has a nice breakfast and the lobby bar is quaint. The blow dryer... More

just returned from 2 nights at the Hilton. Arrived 5 hours early and allowed to check in as rooms were vacant. Booked in swiftly by smiling welcoming staff. Had 2 rooms, but unfortunately on separate floors. No big deal. Rooms clean and comfortable and more than adequate for our needs. TV with various English channels. Tea and coffee also in... More

I have now stayed at the Cologne Hilton several times and the consistency of service has always been good. The Rooms are comfortable and well equipped, if a little Spartan in their design. But offer all the amenities a business traveller needs. The only real gripe would be the high cost of high speed internet access which is the reason... More

Very comfortable hotel and perfectly located just around the corner from Cologne cathedral and the Christmas markets. Staff were very friendly too. Only downside was that our room had a door through to an adjoining room, which although was locked, was not at all sound proof and consequently, didn't sleep particularly well due to people talking next door, as well...

Not your normal Hilton. Very different. It is more like a business hotel without the executive lounge and top end rooms that you grow to expect from Hilton. Still the hotel is good and very serviceable with a touch of that Hilton elegance but at a different level. The rooms are smaller than usual but the breakfast and interior of... More
