I always look for these kinds of smaller hotels in Europe instead of the big chains. Was not disappointed. Got a room on the 5th floor (52). That meant a walk up one floor as the (small!) elevator only goes up to the 4th. Not a problem. The rooms on the 4th floor have a main floor with a living... More

I had a 4 star expectation for some reason. I think it was the cool website that mislead me..Well its not a bad place but like all know when expectations are set its difficult not to be dissapointed. The hotel has obviously gone through some renevations. The bathroom was spotless clean, nice and looked new and fresh...but the total packet... More

Located almost in old town, nice staff, plenty of parking lot around. Fair walking distance to tram stop, close to lots of eatings, attractions, supermarket. The restaurant on the ground also fine. The room was well-decorated, cozy and convenient.

The Chelsea hotel is very close to the Rudolfplatz where you can take the lines 12 and 15 of the subway. Around there are many restaurants, cafes and so on where locals are used to eating, brunching, chilling, etc. Despite I had a problem with the air conditioning, the staff did their best to find a solution. I strongly suggest... More

Me and my partner stayed there for the weekend. We specify on our booking that we wanted a room with a big bed, but we end up having a double bed room, impossible to connect and that could not be smaller. After we complained to the person in charge (who was extremely helpful and nice) we got an upgrade of... More

Comming in the late evening, everything was perfect. The night watch even gave me a code for the internet, when I entered, if I couldnt log in with the regular code.

The Hotel Chelsea is a favourite of mine when I am staying in Cologne. It describes itself as an 'art hotel'. It offers a range if accommodation from low budget without a bathroom to top of the range penthouse rooms. There are also smokers rooms. In addition, it also has a fabulous cafe downstairs that offers a good range of... More

Stayed a couple of times. Really good hotel, rooms are exceptionally clean, bathroom excellent, and very helpful front of desk staff. Great location in the city. Might be a bit loud in the summer with the bar underneath but a great base in the city. A generous check out time makes it hard to beat.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Chelsea hotel calls itself "the hotel different". What's so different about the Chelsea? Is there something special which other hotels don't have? The Chelsea is not a "design hotel", even less a "boutique hotel". Design hotels are by definition "designed" (by now we have eben got "budget design hotels"), the Chelsea has grown by itself; it is authentic. The Chelsea hotel is often called an artist hotel or an art hotel. But first of all it is a house for guests, where everybody is welcome and where anybody feels comfortable who knows to esteem a taste for the individual. Nevertheless, it is true, that the Chelsea for more than 30 years by now has been the residence, indeed "home away from home" for many artists and still is. ... more   less
