Stayed here last week when we built some exhibit at Messe Köln. The hotel is just accross the street from the Exhibition Venue, very comfortable from this respect. large, clean, quiet rooms, nice bathrooms, very good and rich breakfast. Perfect choice if visiting or exhibiting at Messe Köln

The Radisson Blue is well located for professionals travelling to the "Messe" area. Rooms are spacious. Weak point is the service, slow and not oriented on customers, being at the cehcin/out counter or in the restaurant.

The hotel was great, decent sized rooms and very quiet. It is a bit out of the centre though - a few stops on the tram or a 10 Euro taxi ride. There is also nothing near by in the way of restaurants so you have to eat at the hotel or travel into the centre (or nearby neighbourhood). Service... More

We stayed at this hotel for our wedding anniversary and it was a thoroughly fantastic stay. We stayed Friday and Saturday nights and the hotel was pretty quite, I am guessing this was due to it being in the business district. The hotel is stunning and modern and the fotyer really welcoming. The reception staff were really helpful. I speak... More

This hotel was very busy but I think they handled it well, we did however become a little frustrated with the process for organizing breakfast, everyone was trying to help but we recieved 3 varying accounts on how to book! sounds trivial but after a cold shower on a Sunday morning and then lining up in a que and get...

Outstanding breakfast!!! Nice hotel with wonderful bedding and possibility for connecting rooms for families. Typical business hotel just in front of the kolner messe. Just little bit to far from the shopping area of Koln.

One room was on the 6th floor and mine and my husbands on the 2nd floor.I was given the option of another room on the same floor as my... More

Yes, it's next to the trade centre. That's where the good news ends. The service is horrendous - hours to wait for food or coffee - there aren't enough staff and the ones there are mostly clueless and will not make life easier. The food menu is awful - all fried options and bread. There are salads but they're off-menu... More

Great location if you are visiting a trade fare, just a two minute walk across the road. Fifteen minutes walk into centre of town so not too isolated either. Rooms are the usual good standard that you would expect from a Radisson Blu albeit a few housekeeping issues: lights not working, hallway carpet never looked like it was hoovered the... More

The hotel is clean, modern and with good facilities overall. I would say that it's mostly business hotel since it's close to the Trade show (Kolnmesse) and train station, but not that close to the city centre (it's a speedy 15 minute walk across the bridge). There is a good connection by public transport but nevertheless. The internet was good.... More
