“Expensive but good quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

One might generally only stay here to attend an event at the Messe Trade area across the road, for which supply an demand might justify a high price; but there was no such event during my recent stay but the room rates were still high at Eur 140 (incl breakfast). Hotel is clean and modern; breakfast buffet has was good. Hotel restaurant Dux had broad choice of dishes and was reasonably priced - Eur 15-25 for main courses. .

Room Tip: Hotel layout is like a polo mint - circular with a hole in the middle. Outer rooms near to the elev...

This hotel has one draw card - it is across the road from the Koln Messe Trade area - I was working at Interzum this year and my company booked me into this hotel.
The best that I can summarise is that it is perfect for non budget conscious business travellers - I would not book here if I was travelling for pleasure.

I don't think it was worth the EUR200 per night (including breakfast) that I paid.
There is nothing wrong with the facilities - but there is nothing special or unique about this hotel. The central aircon system was not working in my room (I did not complain about it - I merely opened the window) and the fact that at this rate per night you still have to pay for your WIFI (EUR3.50/1hr).I stayed at Dom Spitzen hotel in Cologne the night before at a third of the price and got free WIFI.

If you do not eat at the hotel, which was very pricey, you have to walk a reasonable distance to find some alternatives.

My suggestion - take the train from Koln Messe to Koln HBF and stay in one of the city hotels - more options and makes you feel like you are actually in Cologne.

Another two night business stay, but from arrival to departure, the hotel and staff were spot on. The staff were always helpful and not over powering. The hotel was clean and I did ask for a quiet room but it seamed all were quiet. We didn't eat at the hotel but the breakfast Buffett was the best I have ever seen.

Stayed for 2 nights recently and found it a very good stay. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
For English speakers all TV is in German or East European. Restauraunt was quite but it was a miserable night weather wise and food was very good.

Great hotel, clean modern rooms, pleasant staff and a good restaurant with excellent food. Highly recommended, especially if you are going to a show at the Koln Messe. Wifi in the rooms but you have to pay...

+ points : Nice Room, clean and soundfree; Themost amazing was the quality of the bed. I never sleep that well ... in between time, I buy the same mattress ;-)

Sauna and swimmingpool are nice.

The breakfast is nice and I recommend it.
