My first Castle stay. The hotel is grand. A huge castle that stands on top of a hill overlooking the city of Bensberg, south of Germany and Cologne as a whole. Very spacious surrounding areas with lots of trees and greens, very Castle like. Its nice to just walk the afternoon around the Castle grounds with the feel of fresh air. The lobby is quite simple and humble. Friendly hotel staff that are very attentive and accommodating. Rooms are spacious with high ceilings and an elegant royal feel to it. The huge bathroom was very clean with spotless glass panels. Very nice and fragrant soaps and lotions as well as soft towels. Breakfast was very good. The quality and choices were up to the standards of a 5 star luxury hotel. The hotel is near a strip of restaurants, cafe's and a few retail shops. Location is a bit off the "main city", but its a nice, peaceful, quite place to be in after a long tiring day at busy Cologne, accessible via train with a 10 to 15 minute walk to the hotel.

Overlooking Cologne from the south, this hotel is one of the best ever....
We stayed for businees more than a week and it became home.
Excellent breakfast, very nice staff after long days working...
Rooms ever so quiet.

Prices are the same as downtown Cologne which is easily reached by train or car. Trainstation 10 minute walk.

Room tip: Ask for a corner room

This hotel is a real gem. Whether you are visiting Cologne or the surrounding area, this hotel is an amazing place to stay. As they would say in German, the "Preisleistungsverhaeltnis" is off the charts. I was there for a conference and business dinner, but I could just as well see bringing my family to this hotel. You'll never stay anywhere quite like it. The contents of the minibar are gratis (even the beer) and so is the internet connection.

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.
