This hotel looks tired. The building looks very sixty of last century. The interior and the guest room looks outdated. And the color of the walls and carpets just don't help. And the riverfront park was under reworking when I stayed there. So the arrival was not celebrated at all. If not for the reason of being close to the IMM, you should try hotels in the older quarter of the city.
Some river front rooms can have a view of the Cathedral. The reason I paid for the view was the fear that room without that view could be too depressing.
The restaurant lives up to Hyatt tradition. Foods and service were good. In fact, the foods, which is lively, probably is the most trendy component of this hotel.
I won't say this is a bad hotel. But I certainly will try another hotel if visit Cologne again.

Dear WM_Lee2014,

I really appreciate you honest words on TripAdvisor and would like to thank you very much for your detailed feedback.

It was nice to hear that you enjoyed the food and beverages in our hotel.
I am sorry that we did not satisfy you with our look and design. The Hyatt Regency Cologne was established in the 1980s and was completely renovated inside from 2010 to 2012. We try to appeal to as many guests as possible, but of course this is not always possible. The city of Cologne is building out the new Rhine Boulevard in front of the hotel which gives us a construction work for that time being. We apologize for the inconvenience caused.
The entire team would very much like to welcome you again in the summer, so that you can be shown the most colorful aspects of our hotel and the city of Cologne.

Best regards,

Robin Saunders
General Manager

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this hotel.

Positives: Great view. Large rooms. Huge bathrooms. Fabulous views of the Lock Bridge and The Dom. Within walking distance of the main part of the city, but you are also able to get away from the hussle & bussle of the city. The staff was WONDERFUL and very helpful.

Negatives: the valet parking area was extremely tight and we felt like we were in the way when parking or waiting for our car. We found there were too few dining outlets in the hotel. Not much of a nightlife- if you want that, you'll have to cross the bridge into the main part of the city.

Our second visit to this lovely hotel - it ticks all the right boxes for me! While the building is stylish without being over the top, the biggest asset of this hotel is the staff. From the moment the front door was opened for us by a smartly dressed young lady who offered a friendly greeting, every member of staff we came in to contact with exuded professionalism yet in an open and friendly manner. I even shared a laugh with the young man who checked us in - the check-in process was completed quickly and efficiently.
We had paid extra for a Club level room - superb views across the river to the Cologne Cathedral, afternoon snacks and more snacks in the evening. Once again it's the high standard of service that sets this Club lounge above others we have tried. The staff are constantly checking that everybody is happy, used plates are cleared promptly, drinks brought to the table if you can't be bothered to get your own and all backed up with a friendly smile!

Can't wait for our next trip to Cologne - just need to make sure we can get a room in the Hyatt Regency at the right price. Anybody intending to make their first trip to Cologne should check if there are any events on at the Exhibition centre as hotel prices increase drastically during popular events. Moving your trip by a few days could save you hundreds of pounds!

Room Tip: Superb views across the river on west facing rooms - but you'll pay extra. Access to the Club Lounge/rooms are worth the extra.

Beautiful hotel close bij the city center en shopping streets, reception was exceptional helpful. Rooms are big with a great bed. For view on the water, you have to pay extra. The only downside is, that the charge you €25 per person for the breakfast.

Dear Milagros1972,

It is nice to see that you enjoyed your stay with us and to read your review on TripAdvisor.
It was a pleasure to have you as a guest in our hotel and to make you feel comfortable. During holidays we all need a good night’s sleep as to start motivated and relaxed the following day. It makes me very proud that we were able to give you this feeling of comfort with our bed and our big rooms.

It was also a pleasure to assist you at our reception desk and to provide you with assistance.
I would like to recommend that you include breakfast in your rate for your next stay with us, because it will be much cheaper for you.

We hope to see you soon and we send you our best regards from Cologne.

Yours sincerely,

Robin Saunders
General Manager
