Mercure Hotel Severinshof Koeln City

This was a difficult one to rate as it is a very mixed bag of good and bad throughout. Let's start with the good things;

The rooms are spacious and well equipped for the most part. There's a good bar on site and the breakfasts were decent, and food from the on-site restaurant is reasonable too. The staff were courteous and efficient and in terms of location, it's well placed.

On the negative side, I seemed to have a king-sized bed with a single duvet, the bathroom towels are possibly the cheapest quality I've ever seen in any hotel in the world, the really nice courtyard restricts you from enjoying food or drink there past 10pm (and while there, we hit evening temperatures of over 28c, absolutely perfect weather for enjoying a beer outside) and there's some really annoying roadworks right on top of the hotel that seem to have been there for six months or more. Internet is chargeable at nine euros or 24 hours, and has to be renewed in person, at the desk, when it runs out. And finally, while I know everyone has at some point had the cleaning staff wander into a hotel room they are still occupying, I really don't expect this to happen at 7:50am!

So, it's "okay", but I'd not race back there, to be honest.

We stayed here five years ago, and it was such a good experience, we chose to stay again. This time our room faced inwards but we had no problems with sleep. It was a surprise to see the road outside STILL excavated some five years later, but did not dampen our stay. The hotel is well located, a short walk from town, and when we come to stay again, as we will, Severishof will be our first choice. Breakfast is a tad expensive in-house, we chose to eat out. The wi-fi would be a bonus if it was free (as some other Accor hotels). Car Park good (chargeable). WE LIKE IT.

We had a very nice stay at the Mercure hotel Severinshof in Cologne. Our room was very nice and the staff was friendly and helpful. We didn't try the restaurant but the menu looked very promising. The hotel is close to the city centre, we walked there every day and it took us around 10 minutes. There are also several nice shops and bakerys in the other direction from the hotel that are worth checking out.

Despite several requests at the reception desk, the personnel was unable to correctly operate the air condition in a conference room that we have booked. With an average temperature of close to 30 degrees Celsius, our meeting was considerably compromised. We have not received any explanation nor got any excuse or compensation. What a poor service! This hotel cannot be recommended for business meetings - at least not in summertime.

A good place to stay. Only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Cologne.
Have stayed here many times.
And now I have to reach the minimum of 100 characters to finish this review.

The hotel is accessible to transport, shops and is also convenient to the center of the city by foot.

While it is not the most modern building, it has been well maintained with upgrades to the room decor and bathrooms making this a very pleasant hotel to stay in. I have stayed here several times in standard and superior rooms as well as a suite.

The hotel was surrounded by major constructions but this had no effect on the stay and didn't hear any noise. Good price for a 4 star hotel which is central located and with garage that has plenty of parking (not free). Stayed just one night but would stay there again.
