“Great location for trade fair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Stayed for 2 nights during trade fair which is walking distance. Good room, clean with excellent facilities, clean bathroom. I requested a quiet room and it was, couldn't hear the road or any outside noise. Breakfast was excellent with lots of fresh choice. Bar prices quite high but what you expect in city centre hotel bars I guess. The room rate was very expensive but I was there during the trade fair and all hotels put their prices up, still, I begrudge paying such high prices when you know they are so inflated!

It is a good location for exhibitors to stay during the trade fair in Koelmesse. Transportation is also convenience to every famous place where you would like to visit when you stay here.

Guess room is clean. Breakfast is good and varies, but still kept the same and no change when stayed total 5 nights.

I would like to spell out the kindness of the staff. The hotel itself looks amazing with its modern architecture. Rooms are huge and stylish. My gold membership was recognized during check in, my room was upgraded. Breakfast was fantastic. I recommend this hotel to stay as it is the best in Cologne!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

Travelling a lot for work I have three basic requirements from my room; a decent iron, a hot shower and good wifi.

I need a decent iron so that I don't look like a tramp when going to meet my customers, and this was an unhappy experience. The iron is on the worlds shortest cord along with the worlds smallest ironing board, which means trying to iron a full man size cotton shirt is something akin to the Krypton Factor.

The shower mount is fixed to the wall so when the shower head is in its natural position, it gets water all over the bathroom floor. This means that the shower head needs to be turned to face into the bath, so some six foot plus Neanderthal such as myself ends up getting wet from the chest down in ten inches square of bath. Not comfortable.

At least the wifi worked.

The room was clean, well fitted, and very modern but the lighting was so much as arty but dim.

Overall it's not the worst hotel in the world, but I expected much more a Radisson.

Dear Tom T,

Thank you for your feedback on tripadvisor.com and your current stay in our hotel.

Obviously, you have left our hotel with mixed feelings and we regret that we could not fully meet your expectations.

Be promise to take your feedback into consideration and look for more alternatives, also for taller guests. In general, we have never received negative feedback about the size of our ironing boards in the rooms; however we assure you that we will check other opportunities. Of course, we do have to meet an average demand as a hotel, but let us see what options we find. Same counts for the two showers of course.

Thank you again for your honest feedback and we would very much appreciate to welcome you back.

With kindest regards,

Jürgen Wirtz
General Manager
