We stayed for 2 nights late December. Unusual and Quirky but not a luxury hotel. We stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms at the top and was lovely to walk around the balcony-some nice views. Nice quality coffee in the room and mini bar was a nice extra touch. The staff are very friendly and helpful and speak...

Stayed at the Wasserturm the week before Christmas. It was the perfect time. The hotel is quite special and quirky, five minutes walk from the city centre and easy walking distance to all 6 markets. It's very clean and the staff are charming. Although the skyline restaurant was closed, the one downstairs was lovely. Rooms have coffee machine etc. and...

This hotel is promoted as a luxury hotel in Cologne....it isn't. It is a bit different, maybe quirky, but that is probably the end of the 'pros' list. Whilst the public areas appear well presented the rooms are not the same. Very tight for space and feeling very tired and dated. We had a junior suite with an upstairs sleeping...

It isn't often that one can stay in a former waterworks utility on a vacation. The Hotel in Wasserturm is a high-end experience in one of Germany's loveliest cities. A tour of the building's architecture (I recommend walking down the stairs from the top to the bottom) is fabulous and the interiors are very clever although it is easy to...

This is a private hotel, where the service is great, setting unique, and excellent all around. On check in they told me the mini bar was free (it's simple but a nice touch), in the morning I had a Christmas stocking on my door full of goodies, fresh baked Christmas cookies and grog at reception, nice breakfast with happy wait...

We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting Cologne and its Christmas markets. The location is perfect – you can walk to everywhere! It’s nice to be a bit further from the main road. Approaching the building will wow you. We had a beautiful room and one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept on. The free mini bar...
