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.
