If I were just rating the room I might have given this a 2, as it was quite a hot room when the windows were closed, but very, very loud when the windows were open (facing a major street). I didn't sleep very well and couldn't work because the internet was very slow :( That being said, it was clean,... More

I have been here twice. The staff was friedly and the room was fine durin both visits. The breakfast was much better than in similar small hotels. This is a perfect place to stay if you need a good night sleep near railway station Köln Messe/Deutz.

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!)

Location is perfect if you want to attend of exhibit, Koelnmesse is only 5 minutes walking from the hotel, rooms are clean and comfortable. Mini bar is not available in the room but customers have a complimentary bottle of water.
