The Esplanade Hotel in Cologne is a cool place. The vintage entrance from the fifties is really a must. The owners could streamline the deco of the breakfast room, keeping the original items from the fifties and enhancing the style with a couple of new deco pieces. Centrally located, friendly, and good value for money. Even the rooms on the... More

We booked a triple room for a good price and it included breakfast. The hotel is in a nice residential area, we ate dinner near Rudofplatz with many shops and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. The train station is about 15 minutes away by metro. There is someone at the front desk 24 hours a day to assist... More

The hotel is in a good location on a main road, and we had no problems finding it. We were too early to check in, and left our bags at the hotel and set off to explore. On return we checked in with no problems and found ourselves in possibly the largest hotel room I've ever stayed in. The room... More

A great hotel which welcomed us with good service, indeed, nice clean rooms and an excellent breakfast. All for a decent price. Furthermore, the hotel is located in the city center, walking distance to the shopping, and restaurant areas. We will check in again when we're back in Cologne.

Hotel was nice. Rooms are not new but average 3 star hotels'rooms and clean. No air conditioning but we had at least a fan. Breakfast was included in a price and we had a standard double room. It is close to Rudolfplatz and we love the location, we always stay in a hotel around there. It's also about 15 minutes... More

I was there on a conference and the location of the hotel made it possible to both walk to the university and also to downtown at night. The room was clean, the bathroom a bit small, but on a average good. A lot of choices for breakfast!

The hotel is in a decent location, and the rooms are clean and well presented. But our experience was blemished by the following: Our room was not cleaned while we were out during the day, and by the the time we got back in the evening, it was too late to request. There was no television remote in the room,... More
