I love this hotel, and I have stayed there three times before. I have another reservation for next month.
I go to Dusseldorf for trade shows, and it can take me 45 minutes to get to the show facility from downtown where prices are over 200 Euros for an Ibis. Cologne is more reasonably priced, and just outside Cologne, the Althoff Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg is still only 45 minutes from the show facility in Dusseldorf. I have never paid more than 150 Euros for the room, and that is much cheaper than most other offerings during a large trade show.
The rooms are roomy and nice with high ceilings. The indoor pool is welcome as I like to get my exercise in early in the morning. Breakfast is typical for the better hotels in Germany.
The view from the hotel is stunning. You have a full view of Cologne. Just outside the hotel is a very nice street with shops and restaurants.
I have stayed at more luxurious hotels, but this one is quite good and very well-priced for the area. This is my standard choice now on each trip to Cologne/Dusseldorf.More
