Although the facilities in this hotel seemed to be good, my stay was spoiled by the fact that on arrival I was informed, without apology, that the double room I had booked was not available. Given that this is a large hotel and I had booked several months in advance, I found this difficult to understand. There were also long... More

Slightly out of the way from the main city centre attractions, But nevertheless less had a very pleasant stay here, Rooms well appointed, Bar next to reception, But be prepared for 'Scary prices' ( Yes I know they all are) .

Stayed here for business. Room was nice, meeting facilities very good. Food and breakfast were average. The restaurant misses a nice atmosphere, very cool. Standard service but impersonal. Don't expect a cosy, romantic place.

I have stayed here many times and have always liked the experience. It is a good choice for business folks going to the trade shows in Dusseldorf (short train ride away) or Cologne (walking distance). Business class rooms are spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms are fine- although they do have a weird half shower enclosure tub that seems inadequate to... More

On Jan. 01 my husband and I went to the dining room. It was almost completely empty and we should have walked out because that makes for a boring evening. However, we stayed. We were seated in a corner by the wall. At a small cramped table for 2. The wine list was not good, and the menu was very... More

We had a really nice stay! The breakfast was more than OK, rooms were clean. The carpets in the hallways weren't always that clean. The location is perfect if you don't mind taking a tram to get to the center of the city.

This hotel is just wonderful. The breakfast buffet leaves no wishes open! (On the weekends they even offer breakfast until noon!) The staff is very helpful and cater to your every need. The rooms are large and comfortable. The facilities are wonderfully decorated and in style. Its located near the city center (10min), right next to a tram station, which... More

Stayed here for two nights to enjoy the Christmas markets in Cologne. The hotel itself is nowhere near the city centre; however, taxis were easily available and it only cost us EUR 9 for a one way trip to or from Neumarkt (where the Cathedral is). The tram is also just across the road. Like most of the Radisson hotels... More
