I stayed here years ago when I was working over there. Fast forward 6 years and I was tasked to go over for a work conference. The company I worked for had a travel company, who were insistent that I used an approved hotel (for €75 per night). The option I was given looked crap, so I over-ruled them and... More

We stayed here last week for 2 nights. An 8-10 min walk from the train station and great location for sightseeing and the River. Easy check-in service, very friendly staff. We had a corner room which was very large and very clean. The beds are amazing, most comfortable I have ever slept in. Good mini bar and not too expensive.... More

One of the better breakfasts I had in Germany. Nice and close to everything and room was nice. Not quite sure what the deal is with the painting in the middle of the room though. Would stay here again for sure.

We actually visited Cologne for the 2015 Christmas markets. The hotel Cristall was ideally located literally a few minutes walk from all of the attractions and also from the train station. The rooms were huge. We had a double and a single bed in the room but you could easily have fitted three doubles in! We only booked a double... More

To be honest we had a hard time walking from the place we parked to the hotel and ended up taking a taxi. However, after just a bit of exploring, we found we were in a location where all was easily accessible. The front desk was friendly and spoke goos English thereby being able to guide us in the right... More

Good hotel with a decent breakfast. The bed was nice but the art in the room is a little weird. Water pressure allowed for a great shower in the morning. Room was clean and staff was friendly. Be prepared to pay a city tax when checking out.

This is a nice hotel that's within easy walking distance of the main station (HBf). The two rooms we had each had a double bed with single duvets so could easily be shared by friends as well as couples. The breakfast had a wide range of foods from small, hot suasage patties and scrambled egg to toast, cold meat, rolls,... More

We booked a room for 2 people for 3 nights in December via Booking.com. The price including breakfast was just under £260. The location of the hotel is great for the main train station and Cathedral, plus the multitude of shopping and sightseeing opportunities. The rooms are a little disappointing, with strange lighting design, cheap (not well made) furniture and... More
