I love this hotel. Price quality was excellent. When I will travel for business to Keulen, this hotel will be on top of my list. Clean, amazing breakfast, nice cocktailbar, swimming pool sauna and gym, close to messe. Perfect. For fieign People, don't forget to buy an umwelt card (or something like that .☺)

We had a small conference at this hotel. Right across from convention center. Didn't venture out of the hotel because of our short stay. Room was clean and quiet. Elevators were quite slow. I'd stay again.

The Dorint is right in the Cologne exhibition centre area, Convenient location with tram station right outside the hotel. The rooms are very spacious by European standards and exceptionally spick and span. The stay was very comfortable with good in room amenities with standard business essentials like writing table good hi speed wifi. A definite yes for a business trip... More

Very good and comfortable city hotel. ideal for city-visit to Cologne, at only 5 minutes walking from train-station and bridge that leads to city centre. good bar with light dinner. good and diverse breakfast, only missing some fres air in breakfast room.

Great pleace to stay to enjoy Cologne. Perfect for the LanXESS arena but also just a short 10/15min walk to the cathederal (which you have to visit.) The bar staff were exception and funny and added to the whole experiance.

I arrived at the Dorint Messe Cologne with no luggage after a disastrous experience flying in from Heathrow. I explained my predicament to the reception staff and was immediately helped in numerous ways. And the help did not stop there. Their housekeeping staff volunteered to wash and iron the only clothes I had that I was wearing and return them... More

The disappointing experience of the hotel restaurant (Dux) is a separate review. Just concentrating on the rest of the hotel experience I thought it was excellent. Firstly, warm and helpful reception staff with good English and an equally helpful barman. Good sized comfortable rooms with good noise insulation from the road outside. Free safe and wifi, mini bar (empty), and... More

If you are visiting Cologne for a concert or for 'Der Messe', you couldn't be better placed as the Arena is just 15min walk and Der Messe is opposite the hotel. The railway station is nearby and just a 10min journey to the airport. It is a nice 20min walk across the Rhine to the Altstadt. The hotel exceeded our... More

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
