Good hotel with ample parking and just 20 minutes walk to the main centre of Koln, Good size rooms, great dining and a good bar area and reasonable to mid range price wise. I would stay again! for sure!

I stayed at the Novotel for three nights while attending a conference in Cologne. There is nothing grand or elaborate here, but the room was comfortable and the staff was friendly (with the exception of 1-2 people). They have a restaurant/bar in the hotel. I had drinks at the bar but didn't eat there. It's a 10-15 minute walk to... More

Had super just refurbished room overlooking the Harbour Parade, with fantastic views, at Accor loyalty discount rate. Good (though pricey) parking and easy to get to and from the centre.... but from there on it was disappointing. Safe didn't work, had to wait for it to be repaired before we could go out and leave our valuables; Door to room... More

hotel is located far out of center, and the rooms are small and noisy and need refurbishing. There was an advertising that refurbishing was in progress, so guess i had an old room. for me it was a poor novotel, compared to all others I stayed in.

You get here everything you normally expect from a Novotel - spacious rooms, good furniture, well-equipped bathrooms with a bathtube, a healthy breakfast with a nice view of Rhein river. The property is very near to the most important landmark - the Dome - several minutes by bus or car (which we drove). The hotel has its own parking, which... More

Location is quite good, approximately 10minutes walk to the center. Very friendly staff. We had connecting rooms on demand and everything was well arranged. Breakfast buffet is also really good. There is also a kids corner where they can play games.

Stopped here to break up the journey driving back from Austria to UK. Initial perceptions, easy to find, on the Rhine, secure, light underground parking and very welcome reception.
