4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We visited for a conference last August and found the hotel to be very nicely presented and perfectly located in the city. The staff were all amenable and friendly, and the food was good. The gym was a little bit lacking, but otherwise I'd recommend the hotel to most people. Just watch out for high prices at conference times!

Great spot to stay. Beautiful rooms, good food and superb cocktails! What more could you ask for. The only downside I could give: a little bit off the beaten track and it costs a little bit more in taxis but it's still worth it. The Christmas markets are out of this world.

Just five minutes walk to Kolnmesse and to the nearest railway station. Wonderful all-you-can eat buffet breakfast. Quick internet. Close to city center - 5 min by taxi or for those who enjoys walking - about 30 minutes by feet across the Rhein with the beautiful views. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it. Price is not low, especially... More

Was at this hotel for 1 night and my review as follows: 1) Location: It is quite easy to get to the hotel. From Cologne HBF, just take the S-Bahn at Platform 9 or 10 for 1 stop to Deutz/Messe station. Then exit from right side of the building, get to the tram stop opposite side on the right and... More

Yet another positive tribute to the Radisson Blu team. High quality rooms, appetising food options and, as I've come to expect of Radisson, an absolutely tremendous customer service. The reception team in particular are be commended for their friendliness, hospitality and customer service. On my part, yet another wholly satisfying and pleasant experience. Well done to the Radisson Blu team... More

Very good customer service from all staff. Excellent food and drink. Breakfast was very expensive €25. I had to move rooms due to the air conditioning being unserviceable in my first room (135) and was consequently upgraded to a business class room (688). I wouldn't recommend paying extra for such a room and the air conditioning didn't work in that... More

Stayed at the Radisson several times for expos in Cologne. The rooms are clean and fine for a business visit but nothing fancy. The breakfast is very nice and offers a wide selection of foods. The bar offers a good variety of beers and single malt whiskies. Service is slow but staff is friendly.
