How on earth this hotel is rated so highly by so many people is beyond me. For those here on business, I can see it - perfectly suited to the Fairgrounds. But for anyone here who has any interest in spending time in Cologne as a tourist, location alone should have knocked this hotel down by many notches. Add to... More

located close to fairgrounds (KoelnMesse). Nicer for business travellers than for tourists I would say. Rather cold atmosphere. Should have got a Bier on arrival. Never did. Staff at the reception just average. Room modern but cold with stains on carpet... Buffet breakfast great. Staff for breakfast average.

I must confess the Radisson is a lovely hotel and having booked one of the four suites we had expected the rooms to be ready, we had to wait four long hours with all our luggage in reception, no apologies no nothing, the Radisson needs to really look at the way they treat the client base more carefully. I have... More

This was our first time to Germany and already we are looking to go back! The hotel is ultra modern and had a trendy vibe. The room we stayed in was on the forth floor. We was overlooking the cologne arena and our room was huge and had a lovely comfortable bed and modern bathroom. We decided to go and... More

This hotel was superb and especialy as it only cost £141.00 for 2 nights. We stayed on the sixth floor and overlooked Cologne, the room was pristine, very modern and a total joy to stay in. The breakfast was one of the most best presented and varied we have had, the waiters being a bonus, very intentive and polite. There... More

Really could not fault this hotel at all. If you have stayed in the Radisson SAS at Stansted Airport, you will notice the similarities to the hotel foyer and the way the rooms can be accessed from the main walkways and corridors around the builiding. The rooms are quite big, and although the hotel is a couple of years old... More

I'm afraid that I did not have the same affection for this hotel as other travellers. I found the foyer grey and lacked atmosphere. The rooms were large enough but the decor did not match what I have found in other Radisson hotels. The breakfast was the standard buffet breakfast. As for the distance from the centre of Cologne.

Multi-lingual hotel staff were friendly and courteous upon arrival and they dealt with computer malfunction smoothly (only 1 computer working), even with a long queue of guests. My colleague and I had an employee in training and she was able to check us in with minimal wait time, after asking for assistance from another hotel memeber. Radisson SAS in Cologne... More
