Stayed here for a weekend trip to see the Christmas markets in Koln. Really nice staff, clean and spacious non-smoking room, comfortable bed, good bathroom. Lucky enough to have a room overlooking the lake which was beautiful. Short walk to the tram stop which takes you into the city, took around 10-15 mins. We only had room service food on... More

Spent two nights here whilst attending meetings nearby. Proximity to meeting venue main reason for choice, but not a good choice for visiting Altstadt. The hotel is good for a short stay. A friendly welcome at reception is always a good start. The room was functional, reasonably quiet, with a comfy double bed but barely adequate single duvet. Breakfast was... More

The view from restaurant and from the room is nice. There is lake just in the back of the hotel. 30-45 minutes to get to the Kolnmesse by walking + tram + walking or by U bahn. The only things that are missing: swimming pool and a gym room.

The first impression came from a strong odor of cigarette smoke....on the non-smoking floor. This persisted in the room...non-smoking. The odor faded with the window open, so no disaster but still a bad start. AC did not work or had not been activated, which is not uncommon. Room was furbushed in old fasioned dark brown style. Cleaning was OK but... More

Newly modernized hotel in a lovely suburb of Cologne. Located within a beautiful park with lake. Rooms are very comfortable with good bedding and decor. Large flat screen TV. Did room only so can not comment on restaurant.

My family and I stayed here at the end of December while visiting the Christmas markets. I cannot fault this hotel, the service, room and the breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. It is set in a lovely location, with easy access from the autobahn on the edge of the city so you won't get stressed driving through traffic,... More

The location is perfect, next to the cityforest and close to the city. Rooms are clean, friendly and efficient staff. In the lobby drinks, fruit and chocolate are being offered while waiting to check in. Since I did not ask for a non smokers room, we ended up with a smokers room. We had to open the window to get...

Is a nice hotel with and outstanding view of the forest. The rooms are spacy, very clean sheets and also a good bath with bath suppliers and a hair-blower. A good flat screen and what striked my attention was the fact that even at a couple bed it had two separed blankets. The breakfast is very good and the restaurant... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights last week because the seminar he was attending was held there. The hotel was in a good location with a tram and bus stop about 200 meters away. You can easily get into the city center for sightseeing and shopping. There is a direct tram (#7) to the Neumarkt shopping area,... More

Stayed here before when it was a Holiday Inn. Now totally refurbished and has a very smart appearance. Rooms are of a high standard. Worth paying extra for the lake view, preferably from the top floor of the hotel. Meals in the hotel are a little pricey and the club sandwich was not toasted properly. Breakfast is of the highest...
