Ok hotel, with friendly service, clean rooms, and creepy hallway (lights only turned on when you pass through it - I understand the need to save energy, but it's a bit weird).
15 minutes from the airport, and about 10 minutes from city's center - staff was helpful with the taxies - convenient for our stay.

This converted Holiday Inn is a nice accommodation. Fabulous continental breakfast. Beautiful lake/park behind building. Love a good shower and the rooms have great water pressure. Wonderful toiletries are included along with WIFY

Well the title says it all. The hotel (common space and rooms) furniture is quite dated and is in dire need of renovation.
Overall the rooms and bathrooms are spotless clean on the left side of the building. The rooms are well soundproofed and there is no noise from the highway.
Avoid right side as the rooms are smaller and with much worn down furniture and bedding and the cleaning leaves a little bit of questioning to it (Bathroom light grille was full of dust and I mean the one that has become hairy enough)
Beds are on the soft side and twins put up together to form a double bed. Pillows (as in all German hotels) are too soft and become paper thin once you put your head on. Sheets are spotless clean.
Location is on the far side from the center 20 minutes S-Bahn to Neumarkt or 15 minutes to Koeln HBF (including the walking to the respective stations), but close enough to the Koeln Messe (just 2 stops on the S-Bahn).
Wifi is almost non-existent in the rooms but works Ok on the hallway and reception.
Staff at the reception is excellent, big thumbs up, they can't do more to help you with whatever you've got. I changed the room the second night and although couldn't accommodate my wish for a smoking room (hotel was full due to fair trade) they found me a room on the other side of the building close to a small balcony where I could smoke freely.

Wasn't expecting much from this hotel - think HI Express meets Ramada Jarvis. Hotel looked a little dated / German, but good welcome and ok rooms with lots of multi language hotel. Two good points re this hotel are location; 2 mins from CGN terminal with a complimentary shuttle every 15 minutes from the airport, and a smashing little beer garden, with a well appointed hosted serving steins of beer from a little wooden hut, and tasty pub snacks overlooking a little oasis (paddock)' a really welcoming surprise at the end of a long day. Yes there are bigger and better hotels in Cologne but for a quick airport stopover this is a good option. Only gripe is that complimentary Internet was not available in the room, but I believe was available in public areas

Let me start of by saying that this is one of the cleanest hotels i've seen.
The room and bathroom where extremely tidy. Thumbs up for the cleaning lady!
The continental breakfast was well stocked and there's a lot of choice.
Staff was friendly and helpfull. The hotel is located within 500m of the nearest train station. The train takes you to the city center within 5 minutes.

The only downside I have, is that the showerscreen is a small. This can make the bathroom a bit wet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevators. This reduces the noise.

I cannot rate this hotel too highly. Everything was excellent. The staff on reception and in the large and bustling breakfast room were all most helpful. The buffet breakfast could not have been better - so much variety : eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, rolls, toast, cold meats, cheeses, jams etc etc etc The centre of town is only about 10 minutes max on the tram and the tram stop is only 5 minutes from the hotel. Alternatively, the local train (SBahn) is only 2-3 minutes further on from the tram stop and that'll get you into town in 3-4 minutes. It is just a few minutes on either the tram or the SBahn to the Exhibition centre in Deutz.
I highly recommend this hotel for business and leisure trips and hope to be staying there again in May - if they have a room free.
