“Good base for Cologne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights while on business and pleasure trip, the hotel is well located in a good location 3 minutes walk from the metro station frisenplatz , the lobby is nice, the check in even though there is no one was very slow, dint bother me but was really strange.

rooms are nice in size but a bit worn down i thought. service isint the most pleasant for the price you pay, and the breakfast at Euros 24.50 p/Person is too expensive i thought there are many coffee shops close by and fantastic breakfast served there . internet is not free so lots of extras to pay hence do compare other hotels when booking as i am sure that you can get a better deal.

if i will stay here again, maybe : only if i get a good price as breakfast and internet are the costs to be added

The hotel is located in the centre of Cologne, 15 minute walk to the dome and 5 minute walk to the area around the Brusseler Platz which has loads of cool shops, cafes, and restaurants. The hotel is quite luxurious, and staff are friendly and well trained. They do seem to be on a bit of a money-saving mission though, and our room key was handed to us in a basic envelope (so no key card with hotel name etc on it) and the registration form was a bad copy on flimsy paper. The bed in the room is super comfy, the bathroom is great with a good shower. We did not have breakfast but went around the corner to a simple cafe. We did pay a lot for the room as we were there for the IMM (very important exhibition), I guess you can get good rates in the weekend and I would definitely recommend it then for leisure travel as well.

My wife and I stayed in the Lindner Hotel City Plaza in January 2013. It's a nice hotel. Good beds, nice room (a little bit dated) and good service. The breakfast is very good. Lots to choose from. Parking at the hotel is quite expensive. We parked our car at the parking garage opposite to the hotel. The daily rate is 12 euros, but you can get a parking ticket there for 18 euros for 48 hours. Just ask the guy at the parking garage. With this ticket you can drive in and out the garage whenever you like.
There is a Starbucks nearby as well as many restaurants. Subway-station is a two-minute walk away.
We also bought a Welcome Koln Card. With this card you can ride the subway for 24 hours and you get lots of discount on restaurants, museums etc.
When staying in Cologne be sure to visit the Dome, eat at Pizzeria Piccola L'Originale (cheap and good) and visit the Chocolate Museum.

The hotel is centrally located, and everything was within walking distance. as for the service, it was quite good. The room was clean and equipped with hair dryer, very convenient for travellers from other continent. I booked through Expedia and shared with a friend. It was a very good deal for a four-star hotel.

I stayed at the Lindner Hotel City Plaza in Cologne, Germany, during December, 2012. Overall, I was satisfied with the stay, especially considering the price. I got a deal on the internet and paid less than $100 for a weeknight stay. The front desk staff spoke English, which was helpful. The room was quiet and clean and the bed and linens were very comfortable. Some other reviews said the bathrooms very outdated, but I thought the bathroom was very clean- perhaps they were referring to the fact that the colors were a bit outdated. The location of the hotel was excellent. It was about a fifteen minute walk to the Dom area, and there were lots of restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping near the hotel. I gave this hotel 4/5 for two reasons: the heating and the shower. We tried to adjust the heat level a few different times during our stay, but even after turning it completely off, our room was still very warm. We resorted to opening the window, which brought down the temperature, but was noisy in the early morning hours when we were trying to sleep. I'm not sure if this is a problem throughout the hotel, or if there was just something wrong with our room. Additionally, the shower temperature was not consistent. The water would turn from warm to cold to hot while running. The shower was not horrible, but not relaxing. We did enjoy the pool club while staying. Just a few tips- we parked our car in a parking garage directly across the street from the hotel, and only paid 15 euros for the overnight parking. Also, breakfast at the hotel was very expensive, but there are several bakeries and coffee shops in the area offering alternatives, which we opted for. Overall, I felt we got what we paid for- mostly a good experience, with a few hiccups. However, when under $100 for the room, we didn't expect a $200/night experience.
