We stayed here while on the last leg of our trip through Europe. We took a taxi from the airport since we arrived later than expected (cost was 30 euro). The hotel was nice but the room was a bit dirty. Our town and shower curtain were not clean and had visible black stuff on them (gross). Our room was... More

Very centrally located by the river and within walking distance of old town and cathedral - approx. 10-15 minutes. In front of the Chocolate museum. Bus 133 convenient to the Hauptbahnof (stop in front of hotel). Comfortable and clean rooms.

Stayed here for 3 nights and got a nice sized standard room which we booked a few months in advance for about £50 a night on average which was a good rate for a nice and modern hotel. It is slightly out from the main old town but was only a 20 minute walk from the main train station along... More

This is actually a lovely hotel; the staff were pleasant, the room was clean and warm. The location is quite central, within walking distance to the town centre, the river and markets - if any are on. But here's why I have awarded it two stars. Firstly, and this is mainly what has brought my rating down, we bought a... More

I recently visited Cologne to experience the eight Christmas Markets which are dotted around the central city. The NH hotel on Holzmarkt is just opposite one of the major markets, on the harbourfront. Even without the markets, the hotel is well located in terms of its proximity to the Cologne Cathedral (1.7km), and the picturesque Rhine with its bridges and... More

It won't win any awards for personality, but it was suitably well maintained and equipped. It was only marginally more expensive than some 2 and 3 star hotels. The room included a safe, bar fridge and desk. The bathrooms were good, and had liquid soap dispensers by the sink and in the shower. There were no issues with the free... More
