“Why did we have to pay for parking?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The hotel itself is typical of the Holiday Inn Express chain and inclusive breakfast was really very acceptable. The hotel has a number of free parking spaces and then a car park which was beyond a barrier with a charge, the car park was lacking any really sense of security and it's only function seemed to be to add to the cost of your stay!
The plus point of the hotel is that there's an excellent brewery about 5 minutes walk away.
We chose this particular hotel as it appeared to be within easy distance to Cologne/Bonn Airport but this wasn't the case and was quite difficult to get to.

Room Tip: The rooms are pretty much of a muchness

The hotel is very far away from Cologne city center. You need to change two trams a nd to walk 10 minutes on foot. It is near a hospital and a highway. The rooms are
tiny and breakfast is very poor without any vegtables and hot buffet. The recepcionist was quite unhelpful dont know how this hotel got 7.8 in Booking.

This hotel is a comfortable three-star with very nice staff. Breakfast was continental with great coffee. Be sure to book smoking/non smoking ahead of time. If I were in the area, I would stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel in Jan to attend a business meeting in Cologne,
This was instead of staying in the centre of Cologne and paying extoroniate hotel prices,
Very handy for autobahn and 20 mins to the airport.
The tram stop is a good 10 minutes walk and then takes approx 20 minutes to get
To the centre of Cologne.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear so you are not overlooking a busy road and not too noisy

Stayed here one night while visited Cologne. The price was reasonable, has wifi and free breakfast.
The room was clean, but it is extremely dry. It is also a bit stingy on the towels.
There is no fitness center either.

Just got back yesterday after staying 3 nights here as part of my christmas present my partner paid for us to go to cologne for the Christmas markets. We had a smooth check in on the Saturday afternoon, and we were told breakfast would be served until 1130am on the Sunday, which was great as a lot of places won't serve breakfast after 10am. The hotel is a little out of the way but there is a frequent bus service running all day to the railway station, from where we could get a train to Cologne. We bought a daily family travel ticket even though there were only two of us as it worked out cheaper. The staff were welcoming and the room was spotless. there were 2 single beds which we pushed together, and there were tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Rooms were serviced daily. The breakfast was continental buffet style with croissants, crusty rolls, sliced bread and a toaster, plus a selection of cereals, yoghurt, cheese and german slice meats plus boiled eggs, no need for anybody to go hungry. again the dining area was spotless as was the rest of the hotel. Would stay here again if i am lucky enough to be taken to Cologne again

Room Tip: There is lift access to all floors which i was glad of as i had injured my leg a few days before our...
