Really enjoyed my stay in this hotel (a member of the Radisson group I think). It's well located to the city, clean, modern, comfortable with friendly and helpful staff. I found the price reasonable and would definitely stay here again if I was in friendly Cologne. I've added a photo of the art in our room and you can decide... More

Hi globeertraveller, Many thanks for the glowing review! I suppose I am rather biased as I love all of Seo's art. Next time you come let me know and I will give you an art'tour so you better understand the complex themes of the impact of globalisation, destruction of the environment, and etc, she puts into the works!

This hotel is very stylish but not value for money. £600 per night is ridiculous - well for one of the 3 nights we stayed. I also expected to have a view of the Rhine and not the canal between us and the the chocolate museum. However the staff were very accomodating in changing our room when the allocated room... More

Dear LondonAnnie41, Many thanks for the review. I do realise that 600 UKL is a steep price, however all hotels in the world price their products now according to demand, and during the fairs every hotel charges a premium. In our competitive set the Hilton, Marriott and the Pullman were charging up to 1000 UKL per night. Obvioulsly at other... More

Good hotel with artistic touch. Everything was good and in order and I would rate this four star. However no facilities no gym- and bed could be a bit more comfortable. Bed and bedding sub par. Breakfast options also should change daily as it gets boring after three days.

Dear Williamlye, Thanks for the review, and I certainly appreciate the kind comments about the style and cleanliness. I am sorry you didn't like the bedding, but you haven't said why, so I cannot really address this!

Lovely setting, great staff. Very good breakfast, nice bar setting. Would have been nice to get onto the roof terrace but the weather did not allow - I am sure it would have been great as the hotel offers a very nice view down the river.

Dear Leroy Many thanks for the lovely review, and I am really pleased you enjoyed the bar and the breakfast.

Stayed here for a weekend Aug 2016. Walking distance to the cathedral, old town, and right on the Rhine. Hotel is nothing fancy, but a good value for the money. A lot of effort goes into making it feel artsy, but could use more effort in making sure the little things work, like the coffee pot, lights, etc. It was... More

Dear Stanley P Many thanks for your more than generous appraisal of the hotel, although I must say that being an art'otel, and completely unique in Cologne does make it to the "fancy" league, although we are at pains to never be stuffy or too formal like most hotels!!

Stayed in this modern hotel for 3 nights in September. My bathroom was quite small and so the sink was in the main room which took a bit of getting used to. Apart from that the room was quite comfortable with TV, WIFI, mini bar and coffee machine. There is plenty of choice at breakfast although they are bit quick... More

Hotel is nothing like the photos. Public areas are worn and old. Bedroom is comfortable but very cheaply fitted out with poor quality furniture and bed etc. Lots of bare concrete walls throughout the hotel that just doesn't give a nice feel at all. Hotel is fairly dirty and to cap it all, mice running around in the bar/restaurant while... More

Dear pks, I will re-post what I replied to your comment on the booking.com forum. I believe you are very unfair as the Summer Terrace is open, and very rarely a mouse or a wasp may come from the river next door and get lost. We certainly do not have a mouse problem, and if nature does interfere we have... More
