Very nice hotel, spacious and modern, we had a comfort room, definitely worth the extra money, the room was in the annexe at the back, in its own block, large room, kingsize bed and TV, mini bar, well equipped bathroom with hairdryer. Room cleaned daily, breakfast very good. 5 minutes from the railway station, didn't find it noisy, very central.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Cristall for 4 nights. The room was clean and adequate with TV, mini bar, shower etc. If you are a light sleeper request a room on a quiet side and not the one that overlooks the busy road or the railway. Ours, room number 220, was sufficiently quiet. The location is great.... More

We chose this hotel as it was near the central station - 5 minute walk. Reception staff were efficient. The room was a bit small for two with one large, one small suitcase - no armchairs. A rather dominant "old master" painting turned (literally) by rotation into a mirror. The shower was awkward and potentially hazardous to get out of... More

The hotel has a nice hip design, is close to train station, night live and the Dom. Breakfast was good for Germany standards, I would choose it again as it is good value for money. The free WiFi was appreciated and of good speed.

Good location, close to city centre. A bit noisy outside which did keep me awake. Room was average, on the small side. Breakfast buffet was better than average. Not good, not bad, certainly been to worse places. Would I come here again? Probably not. It just didn't wow me.

The hotel was in a good location, the staff were friendly, Except that on the last night one of the group found a RAT in his room!!!!!! It was around 8mins to the Dom and `0mins from the Rhein, Church bells in the morning at the weekend were noisey. Food was good and the bar service was excellent with Bastian... More

A very good hotel, handily placed for the main attractions with helpful and friendly staff. There is a little noise from outside but nothing significant. We had the more basic rooms which were clean and functional for our needs. Would recommend for anyone looking for a comfortable stop over in Cologne.

Stayed for two nights on business, would recommend for tourists, too. Good, large room and bathroom, comfortable bed. Minibar - reasonable prices. WiFi. Reception staff were top notch! with information, foreign languages, friendliness. Nice breakfast at this price range. There is some street noise but this is a city, even top floors may hear noise. Would stay again.

This hotel is close to the train station. Also at walking distance of the city center and the famous Kolner Dom. We had the comfort room and it was spacious with a fabulous bathroom. The nearby street was only heard if you opened the windows but with them closed it was quiet in the room. The room has an AC... More

This was my second visit to this hotel - this time with my wife - and it was an improved experience. This was largely due to having a very much better room. It was spacious, well designed and with a good big bathroom. We were in the roof space of a building attached to the main hotel and this is... More
