Stayed in this hotel for 2 times. It's only 5 min by walking to the HBF. Rooms are very clean and their design is also very nice, specially the lighting! Hotel personel are very helpfull. Breakfast is open buffet, not so rich but can not say it was bad.

Four of our family business stayed for the 2nd time at Hotel Cristall whilst visiting the Trade Fair. As before all excellent, rooms (single) very comfortable, breakfast excellent, staff veryhelpful. Location great for access to the Messe, super barman with personality and good drinks knowledge. Will certainly rebook for next Fair.

Location is great. In a quiet neighborhood, near the Cologne cathedral and main train station. Room was very basic. Not as stylish as the pictures seem. There was a fitted-carpet which I think is a bit old-fashioned. Bed was comfy, but we didn't like the fact that it wasn't a proper wide bed. Instead it was two single beds put... More

I went to Cologne for the first time for Carnival. Considering this was a 3 star hotel I found it pretty good. A good buffet breakfast was included with the room which we didn't realize. The hotel was very central for Carnival with central station and the Cathedral only a walk away. Hotel staff were friendly and the room was... More

It is conveniently located just 7minute walk from Cologne Central Station and Cathedral. The rooms are small but clean and very practical with good breakfast free of charge. Good things about this hotel are its neighborhood and unique shops around; Turkish and Chinese town nearby where you can find authentic ethnic food. Wine shop specialized in Portguese wine just in...

Despite its somewhat dull exterior, Hotel Cristall is a modern and relatively new hotel, within walking distance of the railway station and city centre. Rooms are smart and modern, and reasonable value for money. Breakfast is included in the room price, and is a good quality buffet. Would definitely stay there again.

Close to station and the centre of the city, so convenient. Clean and quiet. Basic but not too austere Good breakfast and staff very helpful- no language barrier. Drinks quite dear in the bar I would return as all I needed was a room for the night with some comfort

Stayed here in December as my wife wanted to visit the Christmas markets. I agreed as I love going to Germany, as the food and the people are great, The Christmas markets were disappointing as they are now a bit all the same and pricey for what you get. The Hotel Cristall is OK but nothing special, The staff were... More

My friend and I were on a short trip to Cologne for the Christmas markets and wanted somewhere central and of a good standard. This hotel wasn't anything special but it was clean and central to the station and the cathedral. The reception staff when we arrived weren't particularly helpful by this I mean we had to ask about everything.... More
