Poor 2.0
Premium Priced Dump - Don't bother!
This hotel is the worst I have stayed for a long long time. At least one of the reception staff is extremely rude and abrupt, Whilst discussing this with the manager she stood smirking the whole time. Clearly there is a reason that the manager has no wish to deal with this as other reviews mention this frequently. The room service is diabolical, hot chocolate wasn't even lukewarm, cups were cracked and chipped. Only ordered room service as there is no kettle, cups, tea or coffee in the room. A male member of staff tried to help by bringing us a pot full of hot water...not sure what we supposed to make a hot drink with never mind put it in to drink! You advertise this hotel with Air Conditioning. It is extremely warm and is regulated by head office, there is no option to change the temperature so there is no controllable air conditioning in the room at all. You state they have a pillow menu. Reception said they do not have a pillow menu. Pillows provided were horrendous we had to put towels and clothing underneath to get any support. You state there is a health club, this is a joke. A health club implies there is a health 'club' worthy of external members/subscriptions. There a couple of weights type stations (home standard) and a dilapidated treadmill. A sauna and some sort of shower area, NOTHING ELSE. We were only there two night and would never go back. This hotel charges premium prices and has very little to offer as a comfortable hotel never mind a 4*

Overnight Stay in Cologne
This was great hotel for an overnight stay. Great location, close to great shopping and lots of restaurants. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and offered plenty of options. Unfortunately the front desk is lacking in customer service. I felt unwelcome and uncomfortable. Even though I couldn’t even get a simple smile from the front desk staff, I would stay here again :)

Great hotel!
We stayed overnight for the Christmas markets. The hotel was really nice and clean. It’s right across from the Chocolate Museum and within walking distance to the Cathedral, train station, and shopping. We had a great time! The only issue was the parking. It wasn’t as easy to figure out where parking was. We had to go around the block and through smaller streets to get to it. When we finally parked, there were only about two spaces available since there is only one small level. We saw other cars come in that had nowhere to park. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was very friendly. We would definitely come back to this hotel again!

Convenient and great breakfast!
Good position with easy walk along river to many bars and restaurants and cathedral. Excellent breakfast and helpful reception staff with perfect English. Large and comfortable room. Parking available at reasonable cost. Just be aware there is a Cologne city tax - percentage of cost of stay which obviously applies throughout the city

Nice hotel in downtown Koln
Nice and clean hotel. Room was spacious and bed was quite comfortable. However breakfast was a bit pricey. Only stay for one night on the way to a meeting in Belgium.
