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

Stayed in the Cristall for a visit to the excellent Cologne Christmas markets. After an initial problem with our booking on arrival, everything else was perfect. The receptionist who checked us in was somewhat rude and abrupt, however an excellent manager and supporting team more than made up for this. We opted for a Comfort room, which was perfect. The...

This hotel is brilliant for location, a stones throw away from the Hbf (main station). The hotel itself is very well presented and the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was very good. The only downside i found was, i had requested a quite room as i don't sleep great and was told that it won't be... More
