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.

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

My positive impressions of the Hotel Cristall began when I arrived around 11.15pm and was checked in efficiently, then continued as I passed through the designer-style foyer and up to a very spacious, well-laid-out room. All aspects of my five-night stay reinforced the feeling that I’ll definitely rebook here again - from the great breakast buffet (included in my room... More

Visited Cologne for 5 days and stayed at the Hotel Cristall. It is very easy to get to from the Dom, and access to the shops, no more than 15 mins walk. It was my birthday whilst i was there and the hotel left a note wishing me happy birthday with 2 free drinks at there bar, which was very... More

The hotel is in an excellent location just five minute walk to the cathedral and under the bridge and around the corner is the main train station. The hotel itself looks modern from the outside and the reception and dining area is very funky. Breakfast is very good here too. However the rooms are the opposite, they are out-dated compared...
