The room for a single traveler was nothing fancy. It was simple but clean. The free breakfast was in the lobby of the hotel was very good. And when travelling by train it takes five minutes to walk from the central station to this hotel. The city center - with museums and shops - is also a short walking distance... More

We stayed at the Hotel Cristall for one night while visiting the Christmas markets in Cologne. The hotel is located just a short walk from the main train station. Despite its proximity to the station and a busy road, the hotel is very quiet and unaffected by outside noise. The location is perfect for visiting the Christmas markets, the Dom... More

I've now stayed in this hotel on two occasions, with 4 years between them. I'm pleased to say it was as good when I came back as previously. It is easy to find from the hauptbahnhof, within 5 mins walk. The receptionists are friendly and helpful, and the hotel is clean and modern. Both times I have stayed in the... More

We visited Hotel Cristall in December 2014 to see the Christmas markets (which are amazing). The hotel is reasonably priced although upon receiving the invoice on checkout it seems the breakfast was €15 per night for two people, if this was the case it really wasn't worth it, so I would suggest anyone visiting the hotel to enquire about this...

We stayed here to go see the christmas markets. The location of the hotel is ideal, near the trainstation and near the Dom. We parked our car at the park and ride at the zoo and took the metro from there. The hotel is nice. Standard room is not big but has everything you need. The room was clean, the... More

I spent one night here while visiting the markets. The hotel is very close to the Dom and the main train station. The room was quite spartan and was very cold when I arrived as the heating in both the room and bathroom was off. They did turn it on quickly but it took ages for the room to warm... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Cologne's Christmas markets. Only a 10 minute walk from the train station with links to Cologne airport. Hotel is clean & tidy. Breakfast is fine. You are not going to get a full English, but there is certainly enough selection to help start your day. Reception staff were very friendly & helpful. We... More
