We travelled to Cologne for a gaming convention, so slightly mixing business with pleasure. We travelled with our two teenagers, aged 13 and 16.
The rooms were okay, although they weren't ready on our arrival, and we were still waiting for our double room at 5pm on our arrival day (we didn't care - we were in the bar, but that's not the point!). The twin room the boys had stank of smoke, but was otherwise clean.
The spa is fabulous with an amazing black-bottomed swimming pool, a great jacuzzi, sauna and steam rooms (look out, though - a lot of guests use the facilities naked). The gym is good but quite small.
The waiter in the main bar was very stroppy and a bit unhelpful, although a considerable amount of joking with him eventually got him laughing. The food in the bar is amazing - crispy snacks etc during the day and fabulous steaks in the evening.
Breakfast is really good (but then so it should be for £25 a pop).
The broadband is hopeless and very expensive. Our £18 fee was refunded on check out as we didn't get online once.
Would definitely stay here again, but suffer the roaming charges on my phone! Not cheap, but handy for the Koelnmesse conference centre and walkable distance across the bridge into Cologne (or €10 for a taxi).
