The hotel is very near the Lindt chocolate factory. Only five minutes away. Koln dome is within a walking distance. Nice and clean room to the Novotel standard. What we like is that we can have 2 kids stay for free using an in-room double size sofa bed. There are plenty of parking space underneath the building for EUR17 per... More

This hotel is well located right across the road from the Rhine, and within a 20 minute walk to the cathedral. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. The staff is courteous and helpful. The only downside is that the hotel is somewhat clinical and lacks much charm. Overall, a good place to stay while in Cologne.

Very good hotel, in a nice place, close to Rhine but you don't feel cold or any humidity. The rooms very clean and warm. We didn't have any problem at all. The WiFi is very good in rooms and other areas of Hotel. The service was great, just some problems with the parking, but the reception/service solved anytime we needed... More

Our stay here included Christmas Day. We were 5 minutes from the Lindt museum and the Christmas Market out the front of it. The Alt Markt area was another 5 minutes walk from there. We also used the underground, as there was a station again about 5 minutes away. Amenities were good - we used the sauna and bar. The... More

A 3 night break with the family for the Christmas markets. We stayed in 2 interconnecting rooms. All very pleasant with pleasant staff too. The hotel is very handy for the Harbour, Harbour market and Chocolate Museum. It is not right in the centre but it's a very pleasant walk along the Rhein to the 'Dom' and centre of town.... More

We stayed here for one night in two rooms. The hotel is a located near the river and close to where the Christmas market fun begins. It's only a 10 minute walk to the Dom. The rooms were tidy, large enough with excellent beds. We didn't have breakfast, so I cannot comment on that.
