The Chelsea hotel is very close to the Rudolfplatz where you can take the lines 12 and 15 of the subway. Around there are many restaurants, cafes and so on where locals are used to eating, brunching, chilling, etc. Despite I had a problem with the air conditioning, the staff did their best to find a solution. I strongly suggest... More

Me and my partner stayed there for the weekend. We specify on our booking that we wanted a room with a big bed, but we end up having a double bed room, impossible to connect and that could not be smaller. After we complained to the person in charge (who was extremely helpful and nice) we got an upgrade of... More

Comming in the late evening, everything was perfect. The night watch even gave me a code for the internet, when I entered, if I couldnt log in with the regular code. And in general the staff was nice :) The room was good with a comfy bed, tv and sink. The shower was on the floor and the hotel provided... More

The Hotel Chelsea is a favourite of mine when I am staying in Cologne. It describes itself as an 'art hotel'. It offers a range if accommodation from low budget without a bathroom to top of the range penthouse rooms. There are also smokers rooms. In addition, it also has a fabulous cafe downstairs that offers a good range of... More

Stayed a couple of times. Really good hotel, rooms are exceptionally clean, bathroom excellent, and very helpful front of desk staff. Great location in the city. Might be a bit loud in the summer with the bar underneath but a great base in the city. A generous check out time makes it hard to beat.

I can only agree with all the positive reviews here. We experienced very straight-forward & friendly service. I booked directly with the hotel over phone & email- perfect! We had room 56, brilliant. Wow! Elevator brings you up to the 4th floor, only a couple of stairs to reach your room on 5th floor- not suitable for wheelchairs tho. As... More

I chose this hotel thanks to Lonely Planet, I was there during the Christmas market season and got one of the last rooms left, no reservations. It was odd that the elevator didn't even stop on the floor that my room was on. I rank this place poor for two principle reasons, the wifi didn't work for a darn, and... More

I stayed here on a business trip, it was a generally good and comfortable stay, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean, the beds and bedding very comfortable, although the desk chairs were not so comfortable, and I have to assume that the beat-up old furniture was part of the artsy "look". The internet... More

We've stayed at the Chelsea many times while visiting family in the Cologne area. It's a small boutique hotel with original contemporary art in the rooms. Staff is always friendly and efficient. Some rooms are small as one reviewer mentioned. However, there's a variety of accommodations available including suites. Rooms are very clean. Location is great. Restaurant downstairs is fine...

I love Rick Stevens and his recommendations are usually on the nose, but this one was a miss by a long shot!!:( Hotel was not worth the price point, extremely noisy, tiny elevator, room was not artsy at all, but old and run down. i am sure there are better hotels than this!!! hush disappointment
