Seemless and hidden in an old water-tower, Hotel Im Wasserturm is a hidden gem. Beautiful interiors, large and comfortable rooms and a great breakfast made it a very comfortable stay. Most appreciated was the service-level the reception staff provided. Going out of their way to help find a solution for a laptop-charger that would just not fit any international adapter.... More

We went there for 2 nights, for business. Our company took 4 suites. Very nice place and original. The suites were really nice, the room was on the upper floor, and the bathroom and living were at the first level of the suite. Minibar was free, but not so much choice. Breakfast was standart, no surprise, but nothing special. So... More

The outside of the Wasserturm hotel definitely looks like a water tower but just come inside. All curved exterior walls. A fun way to start our tour of Cologne. Everything in the hotel is first class. The mini bar is free. The bed is sumptuous and soft. Our suite was 2 levels with the bedroom and one of the bathrooms... More

Stayed here for a few days. The room was on the 8th floor so there was a lovely open outdoor area outside the room. The room was immaculate and very bright. The bed was so comfy! The bathroom had many complimentary items bathrobes, slippers, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, face creams, loofah, shower cap, nail file. There was also weighing scales.... More

A beautiful hotel which is luxuriously appointed with complementary minibar and wonderfully comfortable beds. I love luxury hotels (when I can afford them) particularly when they're in unusual places. Im Wasserturm really stands out from its surroundings as it is in a quite unassuming area, though within easy walking distance of the main sights and convenient for public transit. The... More

The Hotel im Wasserturm is very much unique, in that the hotel now sits within the former largest water tower in Europe. The setting has been well converted, with the brick building left untouched other than windows and amazing lighting. Inside the brick is again exposed in the lobby area and edgy art sits on the walls. Friendly staff greeted... More

We always like to try to stay in quirky and unusual hotels and this fitted the bill perfectly. We opted for a Deluxe Double Room which was on a higher up floor with the communal circular balcony. The room was big, the views were superb and the free mini-bar was an unexpected bonus. The hotel is located about 200m from... More

It is a clean well located hotel. However, the 5th star is overrated. A 3 to 4 star is more like it. They however honestly charge you with a 3-4 star rate. The refurbished rooms are not to my taste. The building is very interesting. A very good choice when visiting Cologne.
