Stayed here for 3 nights on a short weekend break to Cologne. The hotel is situated south of the Old Town, about 5 minutes walk and very close to the Chocolate Museum. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. The price was great for the standard of the hotel. The rooms were spacious, bright and mordern with everything you could... More

I stayed at a hotel in August 2016 for two nights. The room was spacious, with river view. However, for the price, I would expect a swimming pool/gym in the venue. Small things, but made my day difficult... there was a bottle of water waiting for me in the room, but no opener (after second call to reception, someone helped).... More

Dear Vatel2013, Many thanks for taking the trouble to review your stay, and I am sorry that you took exception with the scrambled eggs and the lack of a swimming pool and Gym. There should have been an opener in the cupboard where the mini bar is located? The scrambled eggs are definitely not powdered. In fact they are liquid... More

After a few issues at the start concerning wifi / a blocked shower, we were moved to a room overlooking the river. The room itself was great, there was three of us sharing and there was plenty of room. The location of the hotel was brilliant, a walk to the centre of the city along the river which was lovely....

3 night stay in August. Perfect location for a short walk into most of the city. Very laid back atmosphere but a friendly, efficient and clean hotel. If you're facing the road the traffic is quiet but can be a minor irritation late at night so ask for a room on the riverside. The widows have a very gentle colour... More

We stayed for one night in Cologne with our little son and chose the art'otel because it was one of the few hotels that appeared child-friendly in the description. We were not dissapointed.

Only spent one night here as a quick stopover but the reception was welcoming with excellent efficient and helpful staff. Hotel rooms quirky but fun and were modern and new. Comfy beds! Particularly liked the coffee machine. Breakfast choice was good.

The hotel was overall perfect for our purposes, except for the fact that it was a little ways away from anything of relevance. As long as you don't plan on coming back to the hotel until you're ready to retire for the evening, then this shouldn't bother you. Check-in was fine, the room was very clean and quiet, and we...
