I booked two junior suites as it was my sons 18th birthday and wanted something special to celebrate.On checking in I was dismayed that we were not on the same floor. 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

Very close to the Trade Show, and still not far away (walking distance)from the city center. Nice rooms, great breakfast. If we get a good deal (again) we will stay there every year during the trade shows.

My wife and I stayed here in July 2014. The hotel was clean, modern and all facilities were very good. It's located a way out of town but we walked in everyday. It's about half an hour walk. You can walk to the station but by the time you've got that far you may as well just continue to the... More

We've booked this hotel to be close to the Lanxess Arena for a concert. It is a long walk to the city center, but if you are fit enough it is not that difficult. Breakfast is amazing and plentyfull. Parking is about 4€ a day in the nearby streets. Beats the +15€ hotel parking fee. The hotel airconditioning didn't work... More
