We love Köln/Cologne, it is such a great city for shopping, eating, drinking, walking. The first time we stayed in Dorint Heumarkt, which was a superb experience. We were hoping for a similar stay in the 'other' Dorint, on the other side of the river in Deutz, next to the Messe (expo). It was a bit disappointing, let me explain.... More

Visited with a Trafalgar tour - maybe they just looked at us as a 'package' group, so they didn't have to give us the usual treatment given to guests. I differ in my opinion here - I feel that they should make an equal effort for all guests. The room was comfortable and WiFi was good TV reception was clear.... More

Ten minutes walking distance from the Deutz train station. Check in time is 3pm but my room was ready at noon on a busy day. Mini bar is empty on arrival, which I personally like, because that way they cannot charge you for things you did not consume. Unfortunately, leisure guests get charged a city tax, while business guests do... More

Great hotel in a wonderful city! The hotel is very luxurious and the rooms are spacious. The breakfast spread is large and it makes it difficult to choose what not to eat! Would have liked to enjoyed the spa but unfortunately did not have the time. Great hotel for both business and pleasure!

The Hotel Dorint An der Messe is situated in a business district just outside of the city centre. It was a good 25-minute walk from the hotel to the Cologne Cathedral over the interesting Hohenzollern Bridge covered in thousands of ‘love’ padlocks. It is possible to take the train from the nearby ‘Köln Messe/Deutz’ to the ‘Köln, Dom / Hauptbahnhof’... More

I stay for one night at the Dorint hotel. WiFi is free of charge but didnt worked, it was turned off. When I wanted to go to the gym they wanted to charge me for 5 Euro! At the reception desk they are not friendly at all. You dont expect such threatment in Germany so overall its very strange!

You must be willing to pay a premium price. Rooms are nice, wifi is free and reasonably fast. Showering in the bathtub is not my thing but ok. Breakfast buffet leaves nothing more to wish. Wellnes is more then ok. So if for business I will stay here with pleasure. For leisure I would like to stay here as well... More

I would understand that the hotel takes advantages of trade fairs and increase prices... but The Dorint doesn't offer what would like to charge. Upon arrival we had to look for "troley" to take out all our staff from the car... The room was clean, with complimentary water. Minibar was empty .. no additional service as minibar with orange juice... More

The hotel has the perfect location to go to the Fair, even you can use it to visit Cologne because it takes just 5 minutes walking to go to the train station and it has many trains that in other 5 minutes take you to the city centre. The best is the wonderful breakfast, with fresh orange juice that you... More
