“Better than expected – Nice city style hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

Short before arriving in Germany we had finally decided not to split our trip between Cologne and Dusseldorf but instead to remain in Cologne for the whole trip.

Therefore we had to find another hotel for the rest of our days as the SENATS
hotel where we have booked the first two days was almost double price on short notice. After reviewing other hotels in the citywe have decided to stay at the Classic Hotel Harmonie.

The hotel is less than 10 min walk from the train station/DOM. We had a double room on the ground floor with view to The small patio/garden. Room size was ok and enough for two people, clean and tidy, with fridge, safe-box and TV.

For the price of Euro 70 BB per night for double room per night over Xmas period, cost is rather value for money. Staff was indeed helpful and speaks English.


Breakfast was ok and provide sufficient choices for different tastes.

A nice city style hotel in a convenient location.

Good well decorated rooms with generous bathrooms. Rooms very clean. Breakfast is not lavish but of good quality. About 1km from the main train station, which was great as we had to go for an exhibition in Dusseldorf, and it was very convenient. The main shopping street Hohestrasse is just on the other side of the Dom / Train station and so also had lots of choices for restaurants and bars.
Price of 140 euros/night was reasonable for the exhibition period.
The rooms do not have free internet, so be prepared to pay 5 euors/24 hrs for this service. Parking is available.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor are great, no disturbances.

Nicely located hotel which was ok, however not good value at €140/ngt. If you do stay here try and avoid the ground level rooms, and make sure you request non smoking as quite strong 'odour' in those that are (I arrived too late to change)

I stayed at this hotel for one night in July of this year and liked it very much. It's in a great location and when I say that I don't mean it's on the same block as the cathedral or the train station but it's just a several minute walk to either. I found the immediate vicinity of the Dom and the train station a little sleazy for my taste and things improved with every block further away from that area so the Hotel Harmonie was just the right distance as it was not a long walk to the Dom and not be in a sleazy area. I'd read in a couple reviews of this hotel that said the single rooms were a little small (I was traveling alone) and I didn't see any of them so I can't judge but for a few more euros I booked a double room and it was great. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Word of caution if you are driving a car: the driving in Cologne, especially in this area, is terrible. Even the locals will tell you that. There are so many one way roads and roads closed for construction I nearly pulled my hair out trying to navigate just a small distance in this town. Otherwise I had a good stay.

My oldest daughter and I recently stayed here on a World Cup trip that stopped in Cologne. The hotel is location very close to the main train station, and the Cologne Cathedral - which seemed to be the epicenter of activity for the city. The hotel was next to a church, so the ringing bells were a wake up call every morning - as we had to keep the windows open due to the unseasonal heat during our visit. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room size was typical for Europe. It was very clean and the bathroom shower was large. The breakfast was included in the room, and was adequate. The only downside to the hotel was the limited wireless internet access. It was not free (nor was it free at any of the German hotels we stayed at during our trip) and the wireless signal was useless in our corner room. We had to go the lobby for it to work (which was just another reason to get a kölsch from the bar!). I would stay here again.

This small hotel is located within a five minute walk from the main train station in Cologne. The building is old and charming, and the interior of the hotel and the rooms have been fully modernized. It is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a small, convenient, clean, modern, and safely located hotel in the downtown area. Outdoor parking is available (for a fee) in a small lot directly next to the hotel. Because the hotel is located on a narrow, one-way street, one doesn't hear much traffic. The rooms are not huge, but because the ceilings are so high, they feel airy and roomy. The bathroom is not huge either, but everything is brand new and all plumbing fixtures worked perfectly. And, important for all travelers, all was very clean. A breakfast buffet is offered in the hotel, and there is everything one needs to start the day (no hot food, except boiled eggs). I noticed that guests were from a variety of countries, so it seems that this hotel appeals to the international traveler. The reception personnel were helpful and courteous.

Hotel looked ok from outside & reception but opened door to room and thought I was in a basic hostel. The single room was the size of a cupboard, very grim with no facilities (eg hairdryer, safe etc). The bed seemed smaller than a single and was not even made up, just a bit of bedding dumped in a pile at the end. My colleague's room was the same and we nearly checked out there and then but decided as it was just 1 night we would put up with it. Glad we did not spend much time in these tiny claustrophobic rooms. Bathrooms also small & don't expect any toiletries. All of this for over €150 a night!!

Only reason hotel gets 2 stars is that staff on reception were pleasant & helpful, location of hotel was central & breakfast was ok. Unfortunately, all of this was overshadowed by the terrible rooms, DO NOT STAY HERE IN A SINGLE ROOM!!
