The building itself is really unique and interesting. We dined in the Michelin starred HImmel un Aed on the first night and really enjoyed the experience. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the views amazing and the atmosphere relaxed. We enjoyed all 6 courses in our menu.

Great luxury hotel in the centre of Cologne, Good value for a 5 star hotel and great facilities, the design is great. In general excellent. The view from the 8th floor is spectacular of the city in the all round balcony.

As others have reported, a very unusual hotel that must have been great fun for the architect. But the unusual shape comes with a downside; for instance, the bathroom (in our junior suite no less) was uncomfortably small, and there was no individual air conditioning in the rooms (they provided a basic fan for the bedroom). The location is not... More

I stayed in Hotel Im Wasserturm this winter time and during my stay I had a very interesting mix of feelings. In on hand, the rooms ar cozy (despite the decoration in my oppinion looks a bit dated, especially compared to the very modern and clearly refurbished restaurant), and so is the bar area... but then, the corridors and other...

This hotel was definitely a unique experience. The layout of the hotel was like nothing I had ever seen. We chose to "splurge" slightly and get the junior suite, which was totally worth it. First, the hotel is very clean. From the lobby, to the elevator, to the guest room, it was all spotless. The guest room itself far out... More

The location is not great. Although it is a short walk to the shopping area and the new museum 'Schnütgen', the neighborhood is just unpleasant. Having said this, the building is an architectural gem. Valet parking and underground parking available at Euro 25,00 per day. WIFI was free. Reception was professional and we were recognized as returning customers and SLH... More

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.
