This is a modern and attractive hotel located in an interesting part of the city; right opposite the Chocolate museum and the Rhine river terrace. It is not in the middle of town but close enough located to the centre by a short walk. You can also easily get the bus to the centre across the road. But on a... More

I stay here every time I am in the city on business. The price and location of the hotel is right near the chocolate museum. The staff is friendly. The breakfast is nice with a choice of warm and cold options. There are bakeries somewhat nearby in case you want to grab something quickly in the morning. The parking lot... More

The room was quite quiet (the noise of young kids in the hallway was detected) and complete, except for the lack of power plugs near the bed. In this day & age, that should be fixed(!). I found the staff friendly and helpful. And the breakfast was a wonderful experience! Plenty of room, including an outside terrace, lots of fresh... More

The hotel has big rooms,with completely separate bathrooms...which is nice. It is little far from the main downtown of Cologne, but closer to some local areas. Right across from the chocolate museum. Cabs are easy to get, and the staff is very friendly. The morning breakfast is very good, a little pricey, but good.

Dear Mybloodhound, thank your for choosing our NH Koeln Altstadt for your stay in cologne. We are happy that you enjoyed our antiox breakfast buffet for a good start in the morning. The walking distance from our hotel to the shopping district (Hohe Strasse) or the cathedral is approx. 10-15 minutes. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards... More

I usually book hotels but my wife booked pus three nights in the NH Köln and it's a cracker! The hotel looks out across the Rhine, separated from the promenade by a busy dual carriageway. Fortunately there is a pull-in where you can park while you register. The hotel has its own underground secure car park but, at €17 a... More

We are 2 cyclists, both over 65 yrs old, cycling the 1300km length of the Rhine. We arrived about 6pm and were tired and weary. The receptionist was not clear on how to use the exterior lift to bring our bicycles into the hotel. As a result we had to carry them and our bags up the steps into the... More

Hello colinp188, Thank you very much for your review! We will immediately train our staff in handling our exterior lift. It is correct that electric kettles are offered in our cathedral view category and higher. But of course we provide our guests by our restaurant service with hot water anytime with free of charge. I would like to apologize for... More

Stayed for an over-nighter. The NH Hotel is well located and it's a short walk to the old town. If you arrive late there's still plenty to do, with bars/museums over the road, by the river. The room was well equipped, with a decent size tv. We were on the 6th floor with a great view of the City and... More

Stayed there during a business event. On top of a price jumping from 77€ one day to over 300€ the following days which should be forbidden, the staff were not friendly and very slow. Moreover, being waken up by the maid at 8am to clean the room is unacceptable. Finally, Internet is so slow that I had to purchase a... More

We only stayed for 1 night. We were upgraded upon arrival, being the daily lucky guest. The room was large and the beds were comfortable. The view from the room was limited and there were a couple of stains on the carpets which made it an okay room, but gave it a feeling of old. The bathroom was great. The... More
