Stayed here for the markets in December, staff were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel supplied a cot bed for our toddler, and everything is within easy walking distance pushing the pram. Room had a fridge which was helpful. Overall a very good stay.

Stayed for the markets in December. Nice and clean rooms. We all stayed in the one room, kids had to share the pull out sofa bed which the springs could be felt. Although that was our only complaint. very good breakfast with varied choice. Distance to main part of city is a 20 min walk, but we didn't find this... More

If you are ever in town for Carnival, you should stay here. It is very close to the start of the parade route, and away from the chaos near the Dom. That being said, it is about a 10-15 minute walk to the metro (post). This line will take you directly to the Dom and Zoo. We ate at a... More

As other reviewers have mentioned, this hotel is a bit of a walk from the main train station at the Dom. However, with a little ingenuity an U-bahn train or a bus can be found that will get you much closer. The hotel itself was alright, staff were cordial although not friendly and the rooms were quiet and comfortable. The... More

Position wise, this hotel is quite a bit of a walk from the main train station - around 40min of walking if you don't feel like getting a taxi upon arrival... this means that it's a bit of a walk if you want to see the main attraction of Cologne - the Cathedral! The hotel is nicely positioned relative to... More

I've got to say I really liked this hotel! Our room was really spacious, very clean, the bed was very comfortable and there was always hot water in the shower! Pretty much ticked my boxes. The main detractor was location, it's about a 30min walk or 10min bus ride into town which was only really a problem when it rained.... More

We spent 2 nights recently at this Novotel Hotel whilst visiting the Cologne Christmas Markets. The location was good for the markets, a pleasant 20 minute walk along the river to the Cathedral. We found the hotel room spacious and clean, besides the carpeting, which need attention. Check in and out was efficient and the staff friendly and helpful.
