Where to begin? As a very experienced traveller both for business and leisure, I have stayed in many hotels in various parts of the world over the past 40 years but this ranks as one of the worst I have ever encountered. We had chosen this hotel because of its proximity to the main rail station in Cologne. Our so-called...

This hotel is located right in the middle of the city, at a stone's throw of Cologne Central Station and the Cathedral. It's in a perfect location to explore the city centre, room was clean but very warm when I got to it (even though the window was open). It's a basic hotel and I knew that before going and...

Like most of the hotels in Koln, The Arthouse is fairly basic with small rooms, small beds and huge increase in prices whenever there is a business event on at The Messe. Still the staff were obliging enough and the location was suitable to walk to the Messe. Breakfast was additional on top of the price of the room and...

Do not stay here save your money. Let's start with the positives... fantastic location very central and easy to get to from the train station, friendly staff. That's it! We booked a standard room with tv. When we arrived there was a strange sewage smell and no tv so had to ask someone to give us one which they did...

The location of this hotel is excellent. Very close to the Cathedral. Room was very clean and the staff polite and helpful. Good breakfasts also. Price for the room was quite reasonable. Next time I stay in Cologne I plan to stay here.

Extremely small room, couldn't even fit nightstands and the TV was 20cm from the head of the bed. Not that it mattered, since it didn't even have a remote. The bed itself was ok, but the pillows were terrible. The bathroom was only very superficially clean. A closer look showed limescale stains, and mould starting to appear in corners. There...

We paid 100 euro for a night, the hotel room was tiny, outdated, filthy and was lacking basic comfort, e.g. the bath had no plug so you could only shower, the power outlets are located in such a way that you have to move furniture to charge your phone, the bath room was clearly not cleaned properly, etc. Avoid this...

The location couldnt be more perfect! The dom is right around the corner, many restaurants within meters, easy to park on the street but would recommend a cheaper option in a nearby parking building. The staff is friendly and helpful. Didnt try their breakfast. The room was very outdated but clean, warm and good noise isolation. We paid €106/night for...

Stayed in the Hotel Konigshof whilst visiting the Christmas Markets. Superb position only a few minutes from the station and cathedral. Good breakfast buffet set us up for the day wandering the city centre and sampling the food available from the Xmas markets.
