“Rare experience of a lifetime”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here with 14 of my colleagues during a Trade Show in Dusseldorf. It was quite good for me even though the others balked at the 40 minute train ride every day. Staying in a hotel in Dom Platz I witnessed sidewalk art in chalk every day and best of all I got up every day and explored the magnificent stained glass windows through the early morning light in the Cathedral of Koln a mere 200 feet from my hotel. Best art experience ever and a fantastic renovation of the old building.

Last year at the Christmas Markets, I stayed in the wonderful Dom Hotel overlooking the Cologne Cathedral. Not only was the staff attentive (more on that later), my hotel room overlooking Cathedral Square was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. While people watching on the square was amazing, the highlight was looking straight out my spacious floor to ceiling window at the statues and sculptures adorning the side of the cathedral. When the bells rang, it was just magical. My small room was a little jewel box of efficiency. Internet service was excellent, food was fine and the staff went to extraordinary lengths to help me, a solo traveler. Admittedly, I had too much luggage so when it was time to transfer to the river cruise ship, the bellman insisted on transporting the luggage down the hill and along the riverside until he had located my ship as a taxi would not have been able to get close enough to offload my things. Bottom line: great service, lovely hotel near all the sights.

A great place to spend Christmas.I think everybody should hear Silent Night sung "Aus Deutsch" at least once in their life and this is ideal. Cosy rooms and the selection of beverages in the rooms refrigerator is remarkably unfeasible in any other city.Located in walking distance to the European cross roads of rail travel this is where you want to whet the dust of the road you've traveled and return to civilisation.

The Dom Hotel has an amazing location and rooms facing the cathedral have a beautiful view especially at night.

We had one of the new modern rooms which had a super comfortable bed and cool electric curtains as well as mood lighting in the bathroom. The room was spacious and so was the bathroom. Everything was cleverly designed and the room included all the necessary amenities.

Breakfast was sumptuous and served till late which is great on the weekend. Overall food and beverage in the hotel is good and so is the reception staff, concierge and valet.

Would highly recommend to anyone staying for business or pleasure in Cologne.

Room Tip: A room with a cathedral view is well worth it

- Location: Great. It is right next to the Cathedral. Is located steps away from the Cathedral, the railway station and the market.
- Atmosphere: Pleasant. You will hear the bells all night!
- Decoration: Elegant.
- Room: It was spacious, clean with comfortable beds.
- Breakfast: Good, but expensive.
- Service: Medium level. While the price includes smiling face of the staff, some of them do not like to smile to the customer.
- Would I stay there again?: Maybe.

This hotel is really great location in Cologne. It is just oposite of the Cologne Cathedral(Koln Dom) and Koln main train station.
I woke up to the glorious sound of bells ringing from the Koln Dom. Great room, fantastic view, right next to Cathederal. Koln train station is less than two minutes walk.
There are many souvenir shop are surrounded by the Cologne Cathedral.

This hotel is all about the location; however, being adjacent to the cathedral, you will hear the bells all night. All night. (And our room was not facing the cathedral--so I guess it doesn't matter where your room is--you'll hear it.) We got a deluxe room, which was very spacious and modern. At the same time, the service needs a lot of improvement. There weren't any specific issues; I just felt like our presence in the hotel was annoying to them. It wasn't a bad hotel, but I wouldn't stay here again.
