4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The hotel has a nice position near the Rhine river. Modern hotel with different color windows, which I personally didn't like because it gives the whole room this color. Room is simple and clean. Has a big desk and good working internet. Breakfast buffet is nice and you have the possibility to sit outside when it is nice weather.

I was so happy with my stay here. The hotel is very modern, with a great, calm atmosphere. My room was so lovely and clean; complete with everything I needed. The staff at reception were so lovely and kind and helpful. Breakfast was also great with a wide variety of food to choose from. If I ever come back to... More

We stayed here for one night and it was very nice. Very modern, friendly staff and easy to get to all the sights from there. The view from the room of the Rheine was wonderful. The shower room art was fab and the whole design was great. The only thing with our room was the yellow window. The entire window... More

Dear Learnsh, Thanks very much for the great review. Sorry about the window though, but as I am sure you noticed that we also have blue and red tinted windows. Its all part of the art concept, and I suppose as with art it is all a matter of taste. I must admit you are not the first one to... More

The hotel is very modern, with a glass elevator that has excellent views of the river. Located on the river, and opposite the chocolate museum (great gift shop!), about a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk from the central train station. Everything was spotless in the room and every toiletry you could want (Elemis) was provided. The bed was... More

We are certainly looking at getting a system that will enable more English channels though! We are also going... More

I was in Cologne on business and when booking a hotel, decided to try out art'otel, rather than NH across the street, based on the photos. I was not disappointed. I really liked my spacious room ("art room" category) with attention to detail and almost regretted that I only stayed for one night. I liked the Elemis toiletries and quality... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in June 2016 for 4 days. Main thing about this hotel is its location. It is located at a walking distance from the Dom, the main railway station and the main shopping area in Cologne. The noted Chocolate Museum is just behind the hotel. Also there is a bus stop just outside... More
