“A pleasant surprise at the airport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

This place turned out to be a real bargain. The room was large and quiet, the flat screen TV was great and the wifi was free. Staff was helpful, and there's a regular shuttle that runs to the airport. I thought it also had a pool, but like most hotels in Europe, that was not the case. (There is a mini-gym.) Of course this is an airport hotel, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you're flying out in the morning. If that's the case, the Leonardo is excellent. Join their frequent guest club before booking. That might be the reason I had free wifi. The hotel also provided a toll free number you could use to make long-distance calls at no charge, but none of the numbers I called was eligible.

I stayed for two nights at this hotel a few weeks ago. The staff are very friendly. They picked me up twice from the airport within 5 minutes of my calling. Drop off was also fast. No waiting for shuttles for this hotel!

You could walk to/from the airport, but I could not figure out how to get out of the airport to the main road.

The room was a generous size and was clean and comfortable. The windows work very well and if you close them you will hear no noise from outside.

The real surprise, however, is the restaurant. The food was very good. And unlike so many European hotels these days, the price of breakfast was not outrageous.

Room Tip: My room faced the main entrance road to the airport, but with the window closed it was very quite. W...

Very nice and very clean.
In a good position for working travel because it's very near to the airport.
But to go in downtown, you need the car.
Large private parking outside the hotel.
Optimus restaurant.

We got a great price for the room. But it was hot weather and the air conditioning was not set low. The system never caught up to cool it off.
The restaurants all served a minimal variety of wonderfully tasty food.
However, the sheets didn't fit the bed, the towels seem very old. The bath room was a good size, but hazardous getting in the shower next to a sharp corner of the sink counter.
Huge tv channel selection and nice foyer. Wifi should be included these days. There was plug in internet in each room - also for a fee; & one computer next to reception you could use with a voucher from the desk.
Good for a quick overnight stop or business - but not a "vacation length" stay.

Although located close to the airport, it takes only 15 minutes to reach the city center by car (unless you run into the morning rush-hour). The reception staff was very courteous and competent, the rooms spaceous,clean, quiet and nicely furnished, incl. a coffe-maker. The selection from the the breakfast buffet is good, freshly cooked eggs are offered as well as special coffees like cappucino. A little garden restaurant/bar invites for drinks on a summer day as well as snacks, or if you wish a full meal from the restaurant. Overall, this hotel fully deserves four stars.

the hotel is the closest to the airport. Theoretically you could walk to the departures, but early in the morning or late at night that may not be that clever given that the area is not that well lit and the cars are doing considerable speeds. Better use the shuttle.
For an airport hotel it is remarkably quiet and the rooms are large and tidy/clean with TV and kettle (not that common in Germany).
However, the lack of free Wifi in the rooms and the bad signal made me refrain from paying the huge fees, the high prices and the restaurant and the inability of the staff to charge restaurant fees or any other fees directly to the phone bill is a real down side - there is a minibar - but it is not stocked.
Please note, if you book through the Leonardo's page that the Airport Hotel and the other Leonardo Hotel in Buchforst (a working class suburb of Cologne some way from the Airport) are offering their rooms side by side and it is easy to confuse the two - the result: wrong bookings, which cannot be reversed.
It is a good place if you have to be at the Airport at 5am and are grateful for anywhere to lay your head, but otherwise...
