One of the best hotels in Germany!
I been in Cologne in a couple of hotels but this is (maybe with the 25hours) the best one in Cologne. I would even say that the whole package makes the Steigenberger in Cologne to one of the best in Germany. The facade (which is ugly) doesn't say anything about the quality, service and comfort within the hotel! Again - a great stay!

wonderful stay
Me and my son stayed one night in that beautiful hotel. wonderful ,helpful staff . They went far and beyond to make sure we had a pleasant stay . Special Thanks for Maher from the front desk for being such a cheerful and effective person despite the fact that he was working alone , he found a time to come and help my son with a problem he had with the HDMI cable and made him very happy.

Nice hotel in a great spot.
Nice hotel in a great spot. Easy to get around and pleanty if shops, bars and restsurants close by. Rooms were big and clean with comfy beds. The only thing that I would recommend is changing the pillows. They were so, so soft that even with an extra pillow requested it was still way too soft to get a good nights sleep. The room also lacked any hooks for your coats. Other than that the breakfast was good and the bar area has a nice atmosphere. Parking is expensive but we would definitely stay here again.

Phenomenal experience, an excellent service
It was an amazing experience. First time with this hotel but pleasant receptionist who gave all comfort in one go. I have no words how I felt good for him. I regret couldn't ask his name. Room he offered was fabulous. Looked like very first time being used. Nice view of the city. Comfy beds and nice room service. Everything just marvellous. I am planning to visit soon.

I was surprised how good it is!
I used to live in Cologne ands always saw the Steigenberger just from outside and, to be hontest, it doesn’t looks so fancy from outside as the location around isn’t the prettiest neither. However, I was stunned when I arrived in the Hotel. Everything looks clean and fresh, the rooms are modern and equip with USB charger and a modern TV. The gym, which was recently renovated , is the best thing. Everything what you could imagine is here and not as busy! I haven’t tried the breakfast but the room service and the bar were good and not too expensive! I can recommend the Steigenberger as I also will come back here.
