Hotel is situated very close to the city centre, close to the main attractions, cloe to the main Shopping area. This is typical big hotel, not the newest one but it is in good condition and clean. Rooms are specious. Breakfest is OK.Hotel is really good choice for bussines or pleasure travel.

It's in a great location but the heating was very bad and the bad linan needs replacing. You cannot fault the staff very friendly and helpful. But the bedrooms need a make over and the house keeping staff need to cut the noise level down.

The staff are the rudest people. I have just been treated like a criminal for trying to get to my room. They felt it was funny on check in as my room wasn't ready and my other friends four rooms were. The place is tired and tatty and the management couldn't care less about you. Even if it's good value... More

The staff were very helpful & great to work with. The hotel we originally planned to stay in did not have our correct room available & were unwilling to work with us. The local tourist information office suggested trying the Hotel Cologne Rudolfplatz. The Hotel Cologne was a wonderful start to our vacation trip. Our room on the 7th floor... More

The hotel is in a good location for a city break. Easy access to the sights / Christmas markets and shopping. This is the third time we have stayed here, but is starting to look a little shabby in parts. The hotel is currently (December 2015) going through some renovations which it needs to keep up with the competition. Rooms... More

The hotel is in a great location near many bars and restaurants. A Christmas market was across the street. Which was a good place to start the night. Then a quick walk in any directions provided many selections of places to shop or eat. The hotel was large but the decor is aged and worn. The mattresses were firm and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Closed until 3rd August 2016 for Renovations!!! The landmarked Steigenberger Hotel Köln is located in the city center only minutes away from several important historical sites.
