A very good budget business hotel in heart of Cologne. Its 7-8 kms from Hauptbahnhof and around 20 kms from Flugafen (airport). The linen was very good and offered excellent sleep. The bath area was quite small and not sure how fat people can be accommodated. The complimentary breakfast options were just okay. Typical budge business hotel. The reception service... More

Very friendly staff. You can feel that this is a private owned hotel. Excellent breakfast. Good location. Comfortable beds though I did not like the pillows. All in all great value for what you pay. I would recommend upper-storey rooms.

The colours were really nice and definately perfect for a romantic couple get-away. The breakfast was also excellent. Service was also great. When we asked questions about the city the staff was really helpful. The only complaint we have is that the double rooms had in fact 2 seperate mattrasses.

The hotel has renovated rooms with a sober yet not obvious style. Care in finishing can be found even on relatively hidden places like the stairs (good prints and paints). However, other details are old style, e.g., normal keys (nothing to complain with - energy saving is left to you). My room was adequate in size, clean, with a useful... More

Fautless hotel - really clean comfortable room with a great shower, good breakfast, ok location with good transport links. The staff was super helpful and kind. I lost my phone in the train and the gentleman at the reception kept trying the number till someone picked it up. Within 20 minutes I was reunited with my phone and very relieved.... More

Our twin room was a little small but clean and quiet, it was facing a busy main road but there is excellent sound proof windows and we heard nothing! The staff were friendly, breakfast was good and location was good enough, tram stops nearby or a 15 min walk into city centre.

I was initially going to give this hotel a very good rating but the lack of airconditioning and the supply of what would have to be the narrowest single bed I've encountered, dropped it a back a level. The service from reception was fine and the rooms were clean with a compact but modern bathroom. We had booked a triple... More

We stayed recently at Esplanade hotel. The location is perfect, staff is very friendly and helpful, breakfast is quite good, the rooms are rather spacious and recently renovated. Free wifi works very well in public areas and in rooms. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 4 nights during a city break. A little quirky looking and need of a lick of paint here and there, the hotel nevertheless offered an ideal base to explore the city of Cologne. There are shops, restaurants and bars all nearby. Several tram stops and supermarkets are in easy walking distance. Our room was a little... More
