“A very good business hotel in the center of Cologne...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The Kommerz is located next to the main train station in the center of Cologne. Could not be more conveniently located for visitors attending trade functions at Koelnmesse located across the Rhine. Five floors - perhaps 100 rooms. The rooms are clean, very small, and very functional. Seriously hot water! Rates include a very good breakfast buffet - very substantial selection of meats/cheeses/breads/fruits etc... If you are lucky, wonderful matjes herring and smoked salmon! Rates are usually quite reasonable, except during the ANUGA trade show - similar situation with all hotels in and near Cologne. Staying here allows you to walk across the Rhine via the footbridge attached to the main train bridge over the river, which for me is worth the price of admission. Have stayed here for the last 3 shows - we will be back in 2 years for the next ANUGA.

Room Tip: you would prefer a room facing away from the train station - although the rooms have been soundproof...

Love the location 1 1/2 blocks from the train station. Plenty of shops and restaurants all within walking distance from the hotel. The greetings received when arriving at the Hotel were wonderful, and they spoke English which was a great help to us. Rooms were very friendly and comfortable. Breakfast was the best I have had in a long time and the atmosphere was perfect. A little noisy on the South West side due to the busses and cab area, but around 21:00 became quite. Very clean and friendly hotel and would recommend if ever visiting Koln.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less A/C unit noise, and the Corner suites are large and sunny.

This must be one of the best hotels in Germany. Had the opportunity to go in this hotel for tens of times and the service and rooms were always excellent. Breakfast super too. The rooms have been recently renovated and its a big plus plus. Staff very friendly and always ready to help. A very worth-while stay. Only seconds away from main train station, so very convenient. Of course sometimes one hears a train in the morning but the advantages outweigh this.

Room Tip: Book early

Arrived in Cologne via Hispeed ICE train. Spotted the hotel as the train approached so it was a quick walk to our room, about 3 minutes, at the rear of the train station. We were given a rooftop room, something I've never experienced before, but the views from the room of the Kolner Dom at night were fabulous. Hotel's location is outstanding. breakfast is available for 11 euro per person. Clean, well appointed, staff was ok, location is great, within walking distance of Kolner Dom, Gross St. Martin church, Alstadt and the Rhine.

Don't be put off by the external design if the hotel.
Don't be put off by the low ranking and ridiculous petty comments on other reviews.
Thus hotel is perfect central location. The place is stylishly refurbished. AND includes breakfast. We even discovered a sauna included.
What a great find at a fair price so full marks and we were very pleased !!

Stayed here for 2 nights located right across road from train station & bus area. No defined area to pull up to drop off bags etc. Person at desk was not very helpful about where to park our van, felt like we were interrupting his work. That said when we saw him the next day was very pleasant and always said hello, so maybe he was just having a bad afternoon - but that didn't help us. Best breakfast for variety that we had during our trip in Europe. Great sitting in the breakfast area and watching the trains come in and out of station.Good location to easily walk around town area, loved the view of the cathedral from our room.
