I stayed here over the period of August 8 - 11 2014. I found the hotel reception staff to be helpful and knowledgeable in regards to all my tourist questions (and I had a lot). They were friendly and professional in their approach to any questions regarding the hotel facilities also. The room itself was of a decent size with... More

The first benefit of staying here is the location. It's not in the Centre of all the tourist Hotspots. The shopping tourist can find a number of hidden gems nearby. There's a kiosk right outside the hotel for those on a strict budget. It is a bit busy on Saturdays with the number of pubs and breweries in the same... More

The Mercure Hotel Köln City Friesenstrasse is located in the bustling Friesenstrasse. Nearby is the Friesenplatz with public transport links to a number of interesting tourist sites. The city centre and central station are only a short walk away. The Friesenviertel is a great place, loads of nice bars and restaurants and, not to forget, Brauerei Paffgen for the best... More

Good: Surrounded by many restaurants and cafes, close to the subway station. My room had a nice deep bathtub as well. Bar keeper was very friendly and knowledgeable about the local beer. Bad: The only public PC's screen faces to the reception and the staff are monitoring! I feel like they should re-position it for privacy. Very slow internet connection... More

I stayed here for 1 night and was very impressed with the reception and all the staff, the bar staff were great, very friendly and professional and understood our English language, secure underground parking was a bonus too. Very close for all the visiting to do in Cologne.

Overall: Dated but great location. The Mercure is a 15-20 minute walk west from the central train station. A couple of blocks south is a large shopping district with cafes and restaurants. The Jameson Distillery Pub is a great lunch or dinner choice, only a block from the hotel (they also offer an Irish breakfast). The location is the best... More

I recommend this hotel to any traveler who's visiting Cologne. This hotel is situated in the center of cologne which makes it easier to travel within city. Cathedral and shopping area is walking distance. Travelers who are interested in partying and pub or club hopping this is the place to be since all majors pubs and clubs are walking distance....

We booked almost 7 rooms in the hotel. 2 rooms entered on the day of reservation but other rooms will be entered one day later. Our friends informed reception about this change and informed them that we accept to pay first night. However the day... More

This is a nicely located small hotel in Friessenstrasse. It is a narrow street 100 metres from Friesenplatz and the line 5 metro station. The hotel signage is clearly visible from the plaza. It is a 15 minute walk to Hauptbahnhof. The rooms are suitable equipped and of good size. Staff were very welcoming and always helpful. A quite hotel... More
