“Very good hotel, but not at the moment”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Like: Absolutely the best location for exploring the town and shopping too. Big public underground parking 14 euro per day. Hotel is easy to find. Nice staff. Big enough, clean and modern rooms. Especially those overlooking the DOM.
Dislike: There is a big reconstruction of the old part of the hotel so the restaurant is not working. Breakfast is not good for that price and a 4 star hotel. Wi-fi is not properly working for 15 euro a day. No fitness and spa in the hotel. Be carefull because DOM "sounds" and is heard well early in the morning.

Room Tip: The best rooms are those overlooking the DOM.

We had a large room which was looking out over the square. Even with an offer from Expedia it was more than I'd usually pay but it was worth it to look out over the Christmas market with all the lights. Very nice room but didn't want to pay the breakfast prices so had breakfast in the Frue at the back of the hotel, which is somewhere worth visiting anyway. If you stay in the rooms overlooking the Square you can expect the bells of the Cathedral to start ringing at 7 am but that's all part of the fun!

I stayed here for a couple of nights. The rooms were comfortable and the hotel is in an excellent location for sightseeing around koln. Main highlight was the breakfast which beat most hotels hands down

We got the room via Expedia at a good price. The room itself had excellent views of the cathedral, and it was entertaining to watch the people in the square, such as the surprisingly mobile 'living statues'. It was a very nice room, with a lovely modern bathroom. However, it wasn't great to be charged 2.5 euros for each capsule of Nespresso (no other hot drink available). We felt the breakfast was overpriced, so didn't try it. Instead we walked about 100 yards to a cafe and had a really good traditional German breakfast for around 8 euros each. I would definitely recommend the hotel for the views from the room.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a view of the Dom. It's very theatrical, and always entertaining because of th...

The location of this hotel is excellent as it is next to the cathedral - which is quite amazing everytime you leave the hotel, the gothic cathedral is infront of you. It is also a short walk from the river, near the shops as well as being around the corner (most importantly being in Germany!) from a fantastic beer hall. I would recommend going there instead of the bar in the hotel as the prices were quite steep and the beer hall had a much nicer authentic atmosphere and the bar staff were not as attentive as the reception staff of the hotel.

The hotel was nice to stay in and the staff did kindly move us without question to another part of the hotel as from our original room we could hear hammering from renovations being completed in the next building. It was unfortuante as that was not an issue with the hotel, so it was great they moved us straight away.

We could hear the bells of the cathedral of course (being so close) but it was lovely - and the bells were certainly not an issue at all.

Lastly, as we came in by train, the train station is also very close to the catherdral and hotel, so most convenient.

After a very long day of flying from the US to Frankfurt, Germany then taking a train from Frankfurt to Cologne we arrived at the Dom Hotel at 11am. Our room was not ready but the staff did get us in as soon as our room became available or it could have been the fact that we fell asleep in the lobby! Our room number was 226. No view at all but the room was spacious with 2 twin beds nudged against each other to make a king size. This is typical in Europe. The bathroom was very nice with a full size hair dryer...always a perk with me as I have a lot of hair! The breakfast here is not to be missed. I have included photos; it's simply beautiful and delicious. The only downside for us was 15 Euro per day Wi-Fi fee…(we booked 4 rooms here). The hotel is centrally located. The Dom Cathedral is across the street. Several other museums are located very close as well. The Rhine is a short walk and the streets are just lovely. I think we visited every brew house in town but my favorite was Fruh. Fruh is one of the oldest brew houses in Cologne and the food and beer were great. Some of the locals call Fruh "Tourist Beer" but our group of beer aficionados enjoyed it. Also, don't miss Peter’s Brauhaus and Malzmuhle.
