"Ok for the price"
Stayed only one night. The room temperature could not be controlled, I don't think the air conditioning/heating system worked properly. We had to open the windows to sleep comfortably, but there was also street noise to deal with. The rooms are very small. The bathroom would have been fine if the urine smell didn't migrate to the sleeping area. I have smelled the same unappealing scent in 3rd world countries where climates are humid. We had to keep to bathroom door closed at all times to contain the smell. Breakfast left much to be desired, very minimal. That maybe the typical European menu for breakfast though. But, for the price of $100 for a family of 4 for one night in Europe, we got what we paid for.

"A perfect inexpensive hotel solution in Cologne."
The Holiday Inn Express was perfect for us as we arrived late and left early. The staff was incredibly efficient and helpful the moment we walked through the door and the cleanliness of the room and lobby were impeccable.

I stay with my husband and our 2 childeren (10 and 16). The room was clean but small. It is a great hotel if you are visiting Phantasialand combined with a day of shopping in Koln. The hotel is on a fairly busy road, I have not experienced as unpleasant, it's just what you're used to. Parking on their land costs € 8.00 per 24 hours, but for the hotel and the parking lot of McDonald's (right next to the hotel) it's free. Breakfast was not much special, but enough for a breakfast. The services of staff was very friendly and helpful. If I want to bring a visit again to Koln in the future I would choose this hotel again!

Seemed over priced for the third adult in our room. 60€ for a towel and sofa bed seems a bit high. While appreciated, the buffet breakfast was a bit sparse. There was no hot food in the breakfast.

"It was average with some noise"
It was average. 1 of the 3 days the breakfast was so over crowded we couldn't even sit down. Mostly the rooms are in the front where the road is, so you can't leave the window open. If you can I'd get a room in the back. Bed and bathroom fine though I hate a cloth shower curtain v. glass b/c it makes the bathroom smell musty. Nothing to do right there but you can drive into town. No room service but there is a McDonald's right next door.

"The worst hotel I have ever stayed in"
The staff were rude. The break fast was very basic and not being refilled often. The rooms were small and old. The shower doesn't have a door. It has curtain. They charge you for outdoor parking without giving you a ticket or letting you know about the charge upon check in. I have stayed at least in 300 hotels over 1000 nights in last ten years. I have never participated in a survey before. I am doing this one, because I am upset with the way I was dealt with at the check out regarding parking.

Excelent hotel, nice and clean rooms, good breakfast and very good coffee station. Walking 15 minutes you can take the Colonge train line 3 or 4. Next to the Hotel has a gas station and a Mc Donals restaurant. It's near to the exit to the freeway to dusseldorf.

"Not bad!"
The hotel was in a very good location, close to public transportation, supermarkets and small restaurants. The room was a bit small but space efficient, clean and well kept. There was no tv in English, only German. Front desk staff was ok, some tried to help but others didn't care much. They didn't really make me feel welcome at the hotel. The breakfast was good, nothing fancy but with basic varieties: bread, cold cuts, yogurt, coffee, eggs and some fruit. It was ok to sleep, shower and then go out. If you need info about the city and surroundings you better try getting to the Main station (cathedral) and look for the tourist board; in there they will be able to help you with places to visit, suggestions and transportation using good clear English. Not a bad hotel at all!

"Excellent hotel"
This hotel exceeded my expectations and I had a very pleasant 6-day stay there for 6 days. The room was spotlessly clean, with a comfortable layout and seemingly brand new interior. Service is excellent, breakfast in the morning is simple but good with fresh bread, meats, cheese, great coffee, juice etc. From the hotel to the Koelner Messe convention center or to downtown is a short drive, and the parking at the hotel is very reasonable at €5/night. Close to the hotel is a nice pub "Das Brauhaus" where they have excellent food, great service and great beer. I would stay at this hotel again next time in Cologne/Koln.

"My two days stay"
No free packing. They charged 8 euro per night for the car park. If you are lucky, you might find an unused spot along the building length. Here you don't need to pay. As regards breakfast, don't bother including it. The first day, there was nothing to eat, maybe due to too many people. I just had bread and juice. The second day, I didn't bother going for breakfast. There is MacDonald next to the building. There is a filling station (three minutes walk) where you can buy things also. Other than these, no issues with the hotel. Good wifi. It is a popular hotel. There we loads of youth footballers when I was there. The place is lively.

Easy parking and access from Route 3 which was a priority for us. Hotel room was small but efficient and comfortable. The breakfast was the only disappointment with many photos of croissants but none actually there, otherwise a standard cold buffet. The wifi was free in the rooms but a weak signal.

"Good wheelchair accessible room"
Wheelchair accessible room was big well set out, though room door was quiet heavy, but I guess that is unavoidable to minimise noise from hallway. Helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast was good but not outstanding. Nothing special in the neighbourhood, though after a long drive the macD next door was handy. Overall it is a very good value for money hotel, not outstanding but more than adequate for a day or two.

We only needed a one night stay in Cologne to see a gig, and this hotel was spot on. Our experience was efficient, clean and comfortable. The only down side was that it was a bit noisy outside late at night, but then it is near a main road and McDo's, so only to be expected. It didn't stop me sleeping!

The staff were very efficient and welcoming. The room itself was clean and had air conditioning to keep it comfortable. The range of channels on the TV was excellent and makes a change from watching news all the time! The facilities were well stocked and adequate. The breakfast was good but lacked croissants and pastries. There should have been more variety. The hotel was good but about an hour and a halfs walk from the centre and public transport is necessary!

"Good value, no frills."
To be honest, we were hardly in the hotel. We arrived late at night and were lucky enough to find a free parking space right outside the hotel. Breakfast was better than expected after reading other reviews. All in all, for our requirements, just to have a bed for the night, a quick breakfast the following morning, plus free parking for the day, we were perfectly satisfied.

"Weekend in Cologne"
A good hotel but not easy to get into central Cologne unless you have a car. It was walk then both tram and train to get into Cologne. The car parking was free if you arrived early but cost eight Euros to put it into an open car park with a barrier if the free spaces were taken. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and breakfast was typical continental but good quality.

"Outdated decor and condition"
Of all the holiday inn We stayed at this was the most run down condition of the rooms. Maybe the others we stayed were brand new properties but in comparison the rooms were also smaller and for the reputation of holiday in the rooms need updating. The wifi was only in the common area of the restaurant and not in the room and also it was extremely slow so most of the browsing was impossible. Location of the hotel was reasonable.

Great value for a family room - very good breakfast and friendly service. Tram stop not far so it was ideal as a base for our whistle stop tour of Cologne.

The hotel is very nice, great morning breakfast and comfortable room. The location however is appalling. If you are wanting to go into the centre of cologne and do shopping, see the cathedral etc, then this hotel is not for you. it is a 20 minute walk to the tram service and then 30 mins on that to get there. Also there are no restaurants near the hotel, besides Mc Donalds, so eat before you go back.

Had to pay 5 Euros for the overnight parking which was not mentioned obviously, not bad but I figured it would have been included. Would definetly stay here again. It's about 1 hour 15 min drive to the nurburgring. The Macdonalds next door was a blessing as we arrived very late and was handy that we could just get food within 50 yards.
