Stayed one night in a single room that I found surprisingly spacious. The room was clean and nice, if a bit hot. I kept the window open through the night and wasn't bothered by too much noise from outside, but then I'm used to living in a city. The hotel is only a few minutes away from Lanxess Arena and...

I didn't sleep very well and couldn't work because the internet was very slow :( That being said, it was clean,... More

I have been here twice. The staff was friedly and the room was fine durin both visits. The breakfast was much better than in similar small hotels. This is a perfect place to stay if you need a good night sleep near railway station Köln Messe/Deutz.

This was my fourth time to stay at the Insel Hotel. It is very well-situated near the Koeln Messe, very near to the Deutz-Messe transport hub - public transport is very accessible from this nice hotel. The single rooms are small, but, clean. The rooms at the back are quiet, which is important in the summer when you need to... More

Loved my stay at Insel. The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was nice, room size was perfect, room was quiet and clean as was the hotel. The American bar / restaurant next door was amazing also. Very handy. Close to train stop / stations, close to shops, bridge to city, lanxes arena. Thank you. Will stay again.

It is in a perfect location for restaurants & a 20 min walk from 'old town'. The negative: the rooms are very very warm (without heating on) &... More
