I spent a month in this hotel and it was very good from the beginning ( rooms are large and modern). The mini bar was free of charge and the breakfast proposed many things to try. It was by far the best Novotel I ever tried.

Personnel was quite arrogant and not helpful. The reception and bar area was ok with plentey o stuff for kids. Room was small, bathroom ok but not more, terrible view. Within walking distance from interesting places. Great to have the Chrismass market on the riverbank. A few tears ago, this was a lot better.

Stayed here three days while working in Cologne this week. There isn't much to be said because Novotel do it all so well, it's certainly my hotel group of choice, in my experience they've got the right culture inbred into their staff and like many other visits it's a pleasure to be here.

We stayed at Novotel Köln city during the new year. It was quite full of people at the hotel. We stayed in the triple room and unfortunately, wifi didn't work in our room so I thought it was because of the room was at the end of the way so I walked to the hall way and tried to reconnect...

This is a typical Novotel hotel, nothing to complain. rooms are good, and breakfast is excellent. It’s also enjoyable by kids. I really recommend it for families travelling with kids. The location is good, only 10 minutes walking to Lindt chocolate museum, and around 25 minutes walking to the cathedral. Only take is that parking is really expensive and it...

We stayed there with a family of 4 for 3 nights. The Hotel is located on the southern end of the downtown area. To get to the Dom or shopping it was about a 20+ min walk or a 6-10 Euro taxi. There are two elevators that service the rooms which can be quite busy. There is a small but...

Novotels are usually good. This one didn't disappoint being centrally located as well as offering all the usual things you expect from this hotel chain. The main bed was very comfortable as well as the children's beds.
