Friendly atmosphere and service with clean rooms. Great breakfast! Internet connection is weak sometimes but acceptable level. Have continued to stay at this hotel every year for business purpose!

This was my fourth time to stay at the Insel Hotel. It is very well-situated near the Koeln Messe, very near to the Deutz-Messe transport hub - public transport is very accessible from this nice hotel. The single rooms are small, but, clean. The rooms at the back are quiet, which is important in the summer when you need to... More

Loved my stay at Insel. The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was nice, room size was perfect, room was quiet and clean as was the hotel. The American bar / restaurant next door was amazing also. Very handy. Close to train stop / stations, close to shops, bridge to city, lanxes arena. Thank you. Will stay again.

My colleague & I stayed here for 5 nights whilst exhibitioning at the koelnmesse. The hotel is a 10 min walk from East Entrance & we walked there & back every Day. It is in a perfect location for restaurants & a 20 min walk from 'old town'. The negative: the rooms are very very warm (without heating on) &... More

Very friendly staff (for a city centre hotel). Room was a little on the small side, but soundproofing excellent, and enough space for one to sleep and work (which was all I needed!) Excellent public transport links and location. The breakfast was one of the best I've had anywhere in Germany (and I'm a real German-breakfast-o-phile!)

I have stayed in this hotel three years running and cannot recommend it highly enough. Very clean, very friendly and very convenient. Close to a train station and a short walk across the bridge to the Dom.

The hotel is next to the Arena and Convention Centre, two minutes' walk from the Koeln-Deutz mainline railway station and right next to a U-Bahn station so it is very accessible. The cathedral and city centre are a pleasant 15 minute walk across the Rhine, or a short ride by U-Bahn. The hotel itself is clean, friendly and comfortable. Decor... More

We have now satyed in the Insel hotel three years running while attending trade fairs in Cologne/Deutz. Accessability to the fair is a 5 min walk and into the city- just a walk over the bridge. There is also an excellent train and metro system (many trains from the airport actually stop on this side of the Rhine-Deutz-- so one... More
