“Fine Hotel In Good Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Stayed here for a night and was pleased for the most part. The room is an average sized European hotel room with all of the amenities one would expect. The staff was adequate; not overly friendly, but efficient enough. The free Internet downstairs was a nice perk, and it's conveniently located right by a transit stop in a nice part of town. Would have merited another star easily but for the black grout in the shower, which told us that the cleaning crew was not the most diligent. We ended up paying 90 USD for our night at the Mercure; if we were ever in Cologne again and we could get this price, we'd stay there again.

The Mercure Hotel in Cologne Friessenstrasse is a nice hotel for pleasure, located close to public transport (Metro). We had a very pleasant stay during our last weekend. Rooms are clean and well equipped, high standard. The breakfast was jummy.

Room Tip: Take a superior room it is well worth the extra costs.

This hotel was perfect for our four day trip to the Christmas markets! Ten minute walk left out of the hotel was the cathedral and plenty of shops and right out of the hotel was plenty of bars and restaurant for tgd evening! Room was clean, spacious and warm. Lots of mirrors for the girls! We went to mai tai and gold finger two bars right next to the hotel and had a great night so definitely worth a visit! Hotel staff were very friendly and let us leave luggage securely after we checked out until our flight. Highly recommended for a great stay!

This hotel is located next to a tube line, its not far from the Dom, and its smack bang in the middle of one of the best areas to go for a drink in Cologne. The hotel itself is much like any other Mercure,Novotel or characterless chain hotel. Come here if you don't want to stumble home far at 5am!

I have stayed at this site many times and sometimes have had issues (they say they have air conditioning but then say that is the "noisy side" of the hotel when you arrive) and this time will be my last. The room smelled so strongly I had to sleep with the windows wide open in November. It smelled like a bug spray or disinfectant that was covered up with air freshener. There was also the sound of running water all night (not sure from where as I was on the top floor). At a couple points in the night there was a sewer smell from the bathroom. I would rather listen to bar noise than wake up with a headache from the smell. When I told them upon checkout it was merely met with an "ok". Other than the bad smells the room was comfortable. They have a garage for parking that sometime fills and like most older cities is a very tight squeeze when you have an SUV. :o
