We are currently staying at the hotel. Nice rooms with very good air conditioning. Amazingly quiet considering we are here at one of the busiest weekends of the year. Gay friendly. Great service from all the reception and bar staff.

The bathroom was a little small - and the bathtub was steep - not suitable for an older person or someone with mobility issues. I was staying there alone, and thought the room was a great size for one person, it could be tight for two people, but I did order a single room. The breakfast was wonderful and the... More

Spent a new year here at a very large room with balcony. Ten minutes walk into the town centre which was a building site at the time, though that's not the fault of the hotel. Nothing to moan about so probably the first choice when we return to Koln.

Good location but noisy Irish bar next door. Room was adequate but bathroom not so - small and badly designed for anybody with mobility restrictions or advanced years. Bar prices exorbitant - 27 euros for two glasses of wine. And at that price you would expect the barman to know that any sediment should be left in the bottle and... More

Overall, we loved the Mercure and were really pleased by how close it was to the centre of Cologne and yet the room was absolutely quiet. The room was nice, not huge but certainly not the smallest for a city centre room. The beds were comfortable but the pillows awful - the first pillows we had just sank down to... More

I had a meeting in Köln close to the main railway station and the Dom, but having been in the city before I knew that area can be very busy and loud (too many visitors :-)). So instead of a hotel in that area I booked this very nice Mercure. It's about a fifteen minute walk from the station and... More

I've stayed in a few Mercure hotels in Germany and the one in Friesenstrasse, Cologne, delivered what I've come to expect. Very fresh, clean and tidy appearance (they always look and feel very new). The bedrooms are ideal and deliver everything I need without being overly pretentious. The staff too are excellent - very pleasant and helpful without being overbearing.... More
