“Convenient location, a little on the noisy side”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

We stayed here for three nights during a major trade show. The hotel is in a very convenient location, close to all the major attractions, underground tube station and the international exhibition centre.
The rooms were acceptable, clean, with comfortable beds and coffee-making facilities.
Only downside was that the hotel is located on a major road, with night clubs that were playing loud thumping music until 4am in the morning on two out of the three nights we were there. Take ear plugs or sleeping pills if you want a good night's rest!
On the plus side, there are many restaurants and cocktail bars close by to choose from, great for relaxing after a long day.

this is a great building for a hotel - however it is right across the street from an all night club. I stayed on a Saturday night and the police, with sirens, were called to the club three times. When I called the desk to move they advised that it was 2am and I could not move. People were screaming and yelling. Finally about 4am the street finally became quiet. -- The next morning, when i advised that it was a terrible night sleep, all that was said was "sorry to hear that". THE STREET NOISE IS TERRIBLE- I do not care what others say. It was as bad as any hotel I have ever stayed.

Room Tip: No street front room

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Ameron hotel 14 - 16 Dec '11 on a short break to see the Christmas markets. Initially we were a little apprehensive when we found it was on a main road and we were on the first floor at the front but we found there to be very, very little road noise. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk from the underground station and at most, a 20 minute walk from the cathedral.

The room was massive (we were shocked to find we were in the second smallest!) with a very comfortably sized bathroom with complimentary White Company toiletries. It was very clean with fresh linen and towels each day. The beds are very soft but not a problem.

They offer a fantastic continental breakfast with a wide selection on breads, cold meats, fruits and cheeses.

We arrived hours before check-in and had a late flight but they were more than happy to store our luggage for us while we explored and allow us to sit in the lobby for an hour, long after check out, just waiting to leave for the airport.

We (2 x couples) stayed at the Ascot as part of a Christmas market break from Friday 9th to Monday 12th December 2011.

The hotel is a lovely old 19th century building on the edges of the old town of Cologne. It looks to be one of the few in the area that survived the wartime bombing. It is a tall, narrow, ornate building that has been very tastefully restored. It is small (44 rooms only) and fairly intimate. It has a cozy and personal feel to it that is sometimes missing from larger hotels.

Good points: Our rooms were excellent. Both were very spacious with a small sitting area and vestibule for hanging up coats, boots etc. Each has a mini bar, tea/coffee making facilities (not as common as the British would like in continental hotels), trouser press, safe etc. All the things you'd expect from a 4 star hotel.

There was plenty of cupboard and drawer space and the furniture was very compatible with the overall ambience of the building. The rooms were kept spotlessly clean with maid service every morning. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.

The hotel also has a fairly extensive gym and sauna (not used by us) and a very small bar for guests. It is pretty handy for walking access to the city centre in about 10 mins. Just around the corner is the Paffgen brewery, the only remaining city brewery to produce and sell beer to its customers on the premises. If you like German food and drink this is very much the place to be.

Down Points: It is located in the middle of the "entertainment" part of Cologne. If your under 25 then that is pretty much a plus. If your our age (50), then not so much.

Loads of bars with luminescent strip lighting, offers of "Gang Bang Saturday nights" and SKY sports blasting from the enevitable televisions in the corner in the vicinity. With the resultant young human booze casualties clogging up the streets as the evenings get later at the weekend. Even if you don't speak a word of German, anyone from the UK will recognise the town centre alchohol abuse warzone instantly from home. A tad intimidating if you like to stroll quietly back to your hotel after dinner - although in mitigation, we had rooms overlooking the main bar street and didn't hear a thing once the windows had been closed over.

Breakfast was also a bit of a bust on one day. Waiting 45 minutes before anyone asked us for our tea/coffee order. Granted it was especially busy, and the 2 young managers trying to cope with the ravenous hordes did their best. But for a 4 star hotel you'd really expect better.

All in all a bit of a gem if you like personal, small and very cozy hotels, but don't linger in the surrounding area too long after dark.

Just got back from cologne and can really recommend this hotel , the staff were really helpful , the rooms were large and very clean , only draw back is there is only the news Channel in English on tv, but we were not there to watch tv so it didn't matter .
There is a laptop in the lobby with Internet connection (free) for public use , the free gym is excellent and the sauna is really good too (towels supplied) .
The rooms have a kettle , trouser press, phone , free safe , air con , tv and iron on request .
Breakfast is continental but very nice with plenty of variety .
The hotel is well located just 200m from the underground ( fritzenplazel) underground tram 5 from the main train staition costs €1.70 for a single ticket and fritzenplazel is the second stop.
If you are flying in and are catching the train from the airport to cologne then you need to catch the s13 db train costs €2.50 for a single ticket and takes 14 mins , note if you buy a db train ticket and you board the ice train which costs €7.50 for a ticket and get caught you will face a large fine .
Recommend you go to the top of the Dom €3 well worth it for a view of the city .

We choose the Ameron Ascot through reviews on Tripadvisor and were not dissapointed. Upon approach by car to the hotel, we had a hard time seeing the entrance, LOL. Once inside, we were greeted warmly by the staff. The room was large, clean, and well appointed. Bed was great. It is only a 10 minute walk to the Dom. Many restaurants around from which to choose. Plenty of nightlife too, but we had a room on the backside of the hotel (with a nice balcony) and did not have any issues with noise.

Breakfast was very good too. Would stay there again without hesitation.

We booked the Ameron Ascot hotel because of location to family living in the Belgium Quarter nearby. We had a warm welcome from reception and our room was very spacious with teamaking facilities,trouser press. couch,desk and coffee table. The windows open which was a bonus and with the windows closed at night we heard no noise. A bright breakfast room with an adequate breakfast and obliging staff. We had a very comfortable stay there and found the atmosphere to be warm and welcoming. It is easy walking distance to the cathedral and main city. I recommend this hotel to anyone. We stayed in a comfort double room 601.
