Maritim Hotel Koeln
Ranked #27 of 263 Hotels in Cologne
Reviewed November 28, 2011

A couple of weeks ago I and my wife stayed at Marime Hotel in Cologne for 3 nights. The hotel is located just in the center of old city, just 5 minutes walk to the famous Cathedral and the central train station. Maritim Hotel has a very spacious entrance and a very wide , glass covered courtyard in the middle of 2 parallel hotel blocks. It is an impressive building especially
in the evening when it is all lit up. In the courtyard there is a piano bar, a coffee shop, a restaurant, a ball room and several shops. There is also a wellness center complete with a swimming pool.
Our room was facing the courtyard so it was very quiet. The bathroom was very modern with digital water taps and all. The room itself was good size. However the TV set was archaic. and the picture quality very poor. When I asked the front desk if it would be possible to replace the TV set with a newer one the answer was no. However they offered to include breakfast to compensate for the inconvenience.. The open buffet breakfast was great both in food variety and restaurant location and quality of service.
The business center was rather small and could be accessed only by a key obtainable from the front desk.
The staff was helpful, kind and good mannered.
In summary if you are not too keen about watching TV it is a great hotel to stay.

Room Tip: If you are keen about sleeping in a noise free environment ask for a room facing the courtyard towar...

Really an excellent service and kind staff.
We arrived in the early morning so we asked if possible to check in. After 10minutes we had room available at no extra cost, really appreciated.
Room very spacious and clean.
Continental Breakfast high quality.
Direct connection between airport and the hotel.
Good connection with Koln messe (bus stop in front of the hotel).
Distance from downtown is 10min by taxi.
High price during exhibition period, but it's normal in Germany.
One of the best hotel chains in Germany.

We had a weekend in that hotel, and it has a great location - 5 mins walking from the Chocolate museum, 5 mins to the main shopping street, 15 mins from the train station, on the riverside. The hotel is really big and as you enter it, you feel like in a shopping mall. The staff is excellent. There's a small pool (but the water is not very warm), and a posh expensive restaurant. The rooms themselves might have been very posh and comfortable in the past, but nowadays they need refurnishing - non-working perfume-holder, old and small aquarium-like TV screen, curtains and carpets from the 80's and internet over LAN instead of Wi-Fi. It all screams: old, old, old. However, generally it is not a bad hotel at all.

Very good hotel, with very good rooms and very well located: over the Rhein, and 5 minutes walk to the Cathedral and central train station.

Very good Spa, ginasium and hot water inside pool, and with a lot of restaurants, pub, bar and disco.

Room Tip: Between 3rd and 5th floor, with outside views.

I used this hotel in the past and again few days ago.. it is always a pleasure to stay here.
A part of the building is made of glass, giving an intense and charmant atmopshere. Service is quickly and very efficient.
Walking in the first floor it is like living in the city center, lot of different shops and four restaurant where you can find you best food. There is also a panoramic Restaurant located on the 7th floor on the river side. Unfortunaltey on sunday was closed. Breakfast is just excellent, with a very large selection of evey kind of food. Sauna and pool also available.
Room are quite large and very confortable, as owner of the Maritim Card I get one on the 6th floor, but also in the lower level they are of same kind.
I paid 150 euro with breakfast, if you match this budget, I will definitely recommend this Hotel, for business trip or leisure, as the very central position, you can reach in just 15 minuts walking the Dom and the Koln City Center, or just walk on the river side, just in front of the opposite side of the hotel.
Gerne wieder !

Stayed two nights, while visiting Anuga Fair. Absolutely superb location, cousy and big rooms. Few steps from Old town and Heumarkt, where all the restaurants are.

Room Tip: During the Exebitions please book as much as possible in advance. I did 12 months advance booking.

I've been staying at this hotel for about 4 years now. It's in a great location, near restaurants, shopping, river, and rail system. They are slowly but surely making improvements to the rooms. The older rooms are pretty dated. Most rooms I've stayed in have twin beds.

Room Tip: Stay away from the seventh floor; rooms are quite a bit smaller.
