Great value hotel. We went for the Christmas markets, and the location was excellent. There was a subway and tram stop immediately outside the hotel, however, everything was within easy walking distance. Great start to the Christmas break!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant centre of town hotel"
A busy hotel well placed for Christmas markets, shopping and a lively if somewhat loud bar area. Clearly something of a local party place. The downside was we booked and paid for our hotel rooms 3 months in advance but we were downgraded on arrival, offered the wrong bed choice and not advised until we made the discovery ourselves. We subsequently negotiated […] free breakfast in lieu but we were disappointed by the hotel's policy of double booking confirmed and paid for rooms. Complimentary toiletries were negligible.

The Dorint Hotel is located close to the centre of Cologne and within walking distance to all the lovely Christmas Markets. The Hotel Staff were very pleasant and helpful throughout our stay. I would highly recommend the Dorint Hotel to anyone who wants luxury and comfort at a reasonable price, even for the Executive Suite.Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovely modern hotel,very clean and comfortable!within walking distance of the shops and Christmas markets!even though the trams run just outside you don't hear them from the rooms!would definately recommend this hotel!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel but minor issues"
Hotel in a good location and very clean minor issue with house keeping, tea and coffee sachets weren't refilled so had to ring reception every day to get supply.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good service at reception. Big, but friendly hotel. Very well located in central Cologne. Good breakfast. Room cleaning was poor, apart from replacing towels little else was done (bins not emptied, tea not replenished etc). Having said that I still recommend this hotel, as maybe if hotel sees this write-up they will review the quality of room clean […] ing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very good hotel in very good location"
This was my first time in Koln (Cologne for English speakers) and the hotel was chosen by a friend who has lived there 18+ years & there was an excellent Expedia deal on the hotel. Its a very well situated hotel close to the west bank of the Rhine and has a very stylish and modern foyer, The underground is just opposite and the Koln Haupbahnhof a mere […] 10min walk away past the main Cathedral (Dom) (take Hohe strasse if walking..). I had a 7th floor twin executive room with a great NE view towards the river, though there is a total building site next door... You do have to look around to find the tea/coffee and kettle - hidden away and the room was spacious, clean and rather warm, too warm for me... which was annoying... I left the air conditioning on all night and the room temperature only dropped from 23°C to... 22°C - not very good and I informed reception in the morning. Room was very quiet. Breakfast: be prepared if its not included in your room price - its €29, fixed. I wasn't given any option on continental or full... Good quality, but very pricey. Reception staff were very helpful, breakfast staff were "taking it easy", though there were only about 10 at breakfast at 730am. I can't comment on the other facilities as this was only a 1 night overstay, but I would stay again. If going out in Koln on a weekend, book a good restaurant in advance.

"City centre location"
Good location with easy access to public transport and close to shopping district.Genuine Expedia guest review
Efficient check in and out, just outside Alstadt, within walking distance to the Dom , shops and old town.Super bar which seems to attract those in the know.Room I had very spacious.WIFI worked well......only downside,feels very corporate and breakfast too expensive for E28, how could the management justify thisGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel easy parking"
Stayed over as a stop off en-route home to the UK from Austria and this Hotel was perfect for the relaxing night required.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, central location, great bar."
The Harry's bar attached to the hotel was fantastic. Really chilled out vibe with good live music and although menu is no thrills the food was excellent. Only negative is you have to pay €10 to use the gym which annoys me when paying for a 5* hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic location, great facilities!"
The location of this hotel is excellent, just a short walk from the Heumarkt tram stop which gives easy access to both the Koelnmesse and the Neumarkt. In the heart of the old town this hotel is close to the Dom and a huge variety of shops and restaurants. The interior of the hotel was modern and luxurious. The rooms were extremely comfortable and room […] service came promptly and was of excellent quality. Only complaint was the price of the breakfast 29EUR when you just want a light breakfast is extremely expensive so we ended up buying breakfast stuff from the supermarket around the corner. We have stayed at many hotels in Cologne over the years but will certainly be making a return trip to this one. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the city centre."
Lovely hotel, within easy reach of the airport and located in the city centre. Great room, very comfy bed, and spacious bathroom. Large selection of food available at breakfast, and the cocktal bar was very nice! Will be coming back and using this hotel next year!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, they charge for gym/pool usage"
All was well. however usually when a hotel notes that it offers a gym and a swimming pool, it is uncommon to be charged 10eur per visitGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"it was ok"
we must have been spoilt in berlin,as this hotel was only ok.good location etc very exspensive breakfast,room was nice and clean,there was a bit of building work going on in the hotel entrance and bar area,Genuine Expedia guest review
"An excellent hotel"
One of the best European hotels I've stayed in. Good location, good room size and services.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel close to the cathedral"
Hotel was great, the staff at the desk advised parking in the garage right next to the hotel instead of at the hotel itself, works out to be around 10€ a day cheaper than the hotel parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"First class City centre hotel"
Stayed one night. Staff are very good, they know what 5 star means and do their very best. breakfast was excellent for choice and quality.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great city hotel"
Stayed here June 14 for a family weekend break. Good location, friendly staff, clean & tidy rooms. The only negative was €10 each to use the pool and under 18's not allowed in spa/pool area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel and Complimentary Wj-Fi most welcome"
We stayed three nights and were very happy with the Dorint Cologne. The hotel was walking distance to all things we wanted to see.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great City Centre Hotel"
Situated just off one end of the high street, 5 minutes walk to the other end and you're at the spectacular cathedral. Large, comfortable and air conditioned room, mini bar fridge with a little space to put your own bottle or two, good sized tv, safe with integral power socket so you can lock away your ipad/tablet etc and charge at the same time, iron […] and ironing board, bathrobe and slippers, shoe cleaner - they've pretty much thought of everything. Best feature is the great marble bathroom with bath and separate walk in shower. On top of all this, a breakfast which will keep you going all day - huge choice of hot and cold food and help yourself to as much as you want. Make sure you get a room rate including breakfast as otherwise it is very expensive at 29 euros per person. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Service trumps everything"
Nice hotel but service is bot as good, no ice machines on the floor, some rude reception desk staff (or are Germans in general come across as unfriendly or rude?), no person on the concierge most of the time. Location is nice though and close to shopping!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel/Great Location"
This hotel was modern and clean. The rooms were comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location of this hotel is great. Within walking distance to hundreds of shops, restaurants,and bars and historical spots. I would stay here again and I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Cologne for business or pleasure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location to everything. One stop to train station, 2 stops / 12 euro to convention centre, walking distance to old town, shopping or neumarkt. Note while superior rooms are bigger and pricier the executive rooms include membership to the full service health club - health club includes all from yoga to spinning to massage. The food in the bar leaves […] a lot to be desired. Didn't eat breakfast. 29 euros. You've got to be kidding! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very centric and clean. Beds are soft"
Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Hotel is very centric. 2 min walking distance from the main shopping street. Breakfast is expensive (if it is outside of the room rate) but amazing. You get access to the GYM at holmes place including pool. Only issue was the bed were very soft.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great business hotel"
A large hotel, many rooms, endless corridors. Very comfortable beds, friendly staff. Great location, with an enormous number restaurants around the corner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, good location"
Initially the hotel tried to book me in to a double room even though I had specified a twin. After sorting that issue out the stay was fine. All good facilities. If you need to purchase breakfast on top it seems excessively expensive but there are some good eating options nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was very well located to see all the main sites of Cologne. 5 minute walk from the main shopping centre, 10 minutes from the Cathedral, 5 minutes from the river front. All very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location in central Cologne"
very nice comfortable stay for pleasure or businessGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice locale in city centre close to lots of places to drink good German beersGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was overall excellent, great location, being walking distance to the old area of town (cathedral) and the new area of town. The room's were very spacious, that bar was stylish and the staff were very helpful! I would definitely stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
Exellint service and hospitality. Location was great -very convenient to access public transport, market and rail station.Needs improvement in the area of housekeeping-may be due to bad condition of carpet and chairs in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, nice hotel with good breakfast"
Very nice hotel, was surprised how this location was nice, except at night it was not nice to walk in front of the coffee shop/supermarket next door. The hotel has nice bar, lobby and breakfast was good, except for the scrambled eggs, I don't know why nice hotel serve artificial eggs in the morning. The room and the bathroom are as nice as the pict […] ure´s Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel for the Koln Karneval. Great location easy walk to the fun.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great central location."
Very central hotel. Great location for old town. Hotel is modern and very good quality. Staff are welcoming and efficient. There is a very nice gym/ spa/ pool which is accessed directly from the hotel. This is Holmes Place facility so at an extra charge, which is a shame.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellenct located near city centre"
A very well organized and perfectly run hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location close to the Cathedral"
Excellent room (executive), convenient location and great buffet. Looks like a business hotel so not much charm for a romantic stay in the Cathedral city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Spacious and clean"
The pluses for the hotel - very spacious open areas and standard rooms are of a good quality and size. Very quiet and sound proofing solid. Could not hear anyone in the rooms next door. The minuses - a pity that the spa is an extra 15.20 euros per person per night should you wish to use it, this is quite expensive, particularly if you are a paying […] guest at the hotel. There are no free-wi fi areas, which again is the first I have experienced in a hotel of this star rating where the reception and lounge areas do not have some opportunity for free access, the hotel offers just 15 minutes free for paying guests, which seemed to run out under the 15 minutes when I obtained a voucher for this. The live cooking area was a great disappointment, it is tiny and one person cooking seemed to be inexperienced in producing hot dishes, the queues became longer as he seemed to take a long time cooking something quite simple. We gave up one morning. The hotel food the next day was luke warm and cold for some of the hot items left on a supposedly hot stove, the breakfast in general was not of a good standard for this star rating - I doubt this hotel should be classed as a 5 star as it is more 4 star quality. The hotel room did not have an inspiring view despite the room being advertised with city and cathedral views. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel and close to Cologne town and Christmas"
Just a very enjoyable stay. A very pleasant environment. No problems.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great timeGenuine Expedia guest review
"very central, very quiet (concerning traffic) Exc."
Staff extremely helpful. The hotel was almost completely full, but all questions were answered politely and without any hassle. I was extremely impressed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A good hotel well located."
Overall an excellent hotel only slight downside is that access to wellness area requires daily membership to Holmes Place which could prove costly if used by more than one person over a number of days.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We fell so in love with the superb modern room interior. The bed & the big pillows had added much comfort to our stay. Glad that we had tried Dorint hotel in Cologne, will consider Dorint hotels in other parts of Europe. A hotel not to be missed if you are in Cologne.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had fantastic rooms (no 639 and 641) with views of the Cathedral. Spotlessly clean and very quiet. Excellent locations for both the old town and for the Lanxess Arena (2 tram stops away). Harry's Bar is brilliant.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall a fairly nice hotel, directly in the city centre, staff very friendly and professional. Outstanding for me was the quality of the concierge recommendations on restaurants and things to do in the city as well as the hotel bar. The room comfort and equipment was good but not as fantastic as I have seen it in other 5 star hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
