“Very good but starting to show its age”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

Nice hotel, mist have been grand 5 or so years ago but starting to show its age in the room I stayed in.

However brilliant location in the centre for looking around, walking distance to decent restaurants and has underground parking.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here in october, but only just got round to reviewing.

The hotel was clean and spacious as youd expect from pullman, and the deluxe rooms had a fantastic view out onto the cathedral and the rest of Colognes sites. It was about a fifteen minute walk to get to most of the sites from the hotel, and the area felt safe and eclectic enough, surrounded by upmarket private art galleries.

A minor niggle was the checkin when our room was not ready even at 3.30pm, however they were very apologetic and allowed us a couple of free drinks as well as writing off the minibar tab unprompted.

This hotel was a Dorint before and it's located close to the heart of the city. The hotel needs a update in several parts like the restaurant and the elevator but overall it's a good business hotel. The standard rooms are small and the bathrooms a little out of date. The location is clean and overall in a good shape. Very positive are the nice breakfast and the very helpful staff! A negative point is the wine (!) bar and restaurant on the top floor. The service is not great and the wine list is bad, in quality and price! Don't get a wine by glass, very cheap wine for a high price! Overall a good stay but be sure you look for the right price and don't go there when a fare is happen, to expensive.

Room Tip: Get a bigger room then standard.

Liked it but noise from the festival in the room was too much. So the windows do not keep the noise outside. Breakfast good and enough choice in different foods. The hotel seems to be a bit old the corridors and elevators would need some upgrading.

We regularly stay at this hotel right in the middle of the city. Narrow underground parking, but once you are parked you do not need your car anymore for shopping or visiting this vibrant city. This time we had a en suite room on the eleventh floor, very comfortable and large with separate TV room and dressing. In general, all rooms we had till now were well insulated (even big carnival parties held in the ball room did not disturb us) and very comfortable beds and bed linen. Also clean fitness and thermal area. Vast breakfast buffet.

We stayed for 4 nights in January and were impressed with the size of the room. The pillows (all 3 of them each) were wonderful and the bed was very comfortable. The reception staff were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was included in our rate and offered a large range of food and beverages. The hotel is conveniently located to both the Dom and the shopping area. We were unaware that some early events for Karneval would be held at the hotel during our stay and despite staying on the sixth floor we were woken by the noise at 1:30am one morning. As we overlooked the entry to the hotel we feel this contributed to the noise waking us. The events did make for some interesting sights in the hotel lobby each night though. Within minutes of the hotel are some smaller streets that are definitely worth exploring. We'll stay here again on our next visit to Cologne.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting the Christmas Markets. Good location with station and cathedral only 10 minutes walk away. Reception staff very friendly and our room was spacious with a good view of the cathedral. Breakfast had to be seen to be believed, a little expensive but well worth the money for the quality and quantity - possibly the best hotel breakfast you will ever see, look out for the honeycomb.
We will be back when we next visit Cologne.

Room Tip: Request a room on a high floor with good views of the cathedral.
