“Great Bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

This hotel is so close to the main station if arriving by train, perfectly located for the Dom and central restaurants, bars and shops - walking distance everywhere so perfect for a short weekend break holiday. The rooms are excellent, large, well equipped and the beds are comfort personified. The best bit was the bar in the main lobby area which was delightful (great staff) and the cost of drinks was pretty much the same as in local bars. At the time of travel it was still legal to smoke in bars in Germany so the non-smoking hotel bar was a joy. Really recommend Cologne as a venue and this hotel as the accommodation centre.

Room Tip: The hotel is quiet anyway, but there is an inner courtyard so if you room faces this it is really qu...

Having stayed at other Marriott hotels I was not surprised by the Cologne Marriott which easily maintains the high standard that I was expecting. The hotel staff were polite, friendly and (of course) spoke impeccable English. The room was spacious, well furnished with a very comfortable bed. The usual coffee/tea facilities and bathroom products were provided, along with a safe and a refrigerator which were both very useful. The breakfast was superb and seems to cater to every possible taste. The hotel itself is in a fantastic location close to the train station and all of the main sights.

Great location and friendly staff. Have stayed here twice and each time problem with the room. First time room faced inside to the centre of the hotel, at night sounds just bounced from all the windows in to ours, so you can't open the window, also could hear noise from other rooms above or next door, so had a sleepless night. The second time the room was tiny about half the size as the last one, even though we had paid for the same room. On a positive the breakfast is GREAT!!

Room Tip: Check which way room faces and avoid the ones that face inwards to the centre of the hotel.

I have stayed at the Marriott a few times but not for a few years. It has since had a very nice refurbishment.
The rooms are clean spacious and comfortable, and had a very good shower in the bathroom.
Fittings are to a high standard and it is a good choice of hotel.

Lovely hotel with a great location in cologne. Rooms were nice, clean, spacious and comfortable. My only faults would be dinner in the restaurant ( quite average and a little overpriced) and the staff while good weren't great. Checkout took about 15mins and the receptionist had a bit of an attitude ( our room had been incorrectly charged for an item the response was "well it's on the computer so it must be right" !!!) other than that great stay!

I only stayed here for 1 night; however, I could have easily stayed for longer. The staff at check in were very helpful and friendly. We had arrived very early by train into Cologne and were pleasantly surprised to be able to check in early. What a bonus to discover that the room was spotless, the twin single beds huge, the shower great and the breakfast, excellent. My sister and I had some cocktails the evening we were there enjoying the quietness of the lounge areas and the efficient service. My only disappointment was that you had to pay for Internet access. Nonetheless, for 12 euro you could get 24 hours of wi fi and up to three devices could access it so I guess that wasn't too bad.
The location, which is within walking distance of the main train station was very handy, no need for the drama and expense of getting a taxi in a new city; simply stroll 5 minutes down the road and you were at the Hotel. Overall, this was a really nice place to stay and I thoroughly enjoyed my short time here!

The hotel staff have been trained to sensitive to gay and lesbian couples which is nice- But being straight, my girlfriend and I had a great laugh after check in, as the front desk clerk discreetly and very professionally asked us if we would prefer a king bed :)

Loved this hotel, the location could not have been better. It is a few minutes walk from the train station, and a very short walk to the Cologne Cathedral. The Cologne Train station had more going on with shops and restaurants than our own small city center back home....We only had snacks in the executive lounge, which had nice pastries, but we did not eat a meal in the hotel. There were so many option in the train station we ate there mostly, and at the Christmas markets. Very clean, modern, well maintained rooms, and comfy beds. Construction and noise were not an issue during our stay.
