Romantik Hotel im Wasserturm, Cologne
Cute hotel, a little out of the main area.
The hotel is in a cool old water tower, so the experience was fun. We arrived during check-out time, and it had quite a long line of people wanting to check out. We dropped our bags and ended up checking in that evening. The metro stop Postrasse is just around the corner (when you come up, go straight, then right on the first street), and is super easy to get to the train station. It's about a 15-minute walk to the cathedral and/or chocolate museum. The receptionists were very kind, but they could definitely have used at least one more person working during check out. I didn't love the pillows, but the bed was comfortable.

Awesome View, upgrade is worth it.
Took a long to check in because they can't the reservation under my name. I think messed this up, but Wasserturm upgraded the room. It has a really great room and I will definitely go back.

Romantik Hotel im Wasserturm, Cologne
Charming, quiet hotel that is still near it all.
The hotel has a great location. It is in a charming old building but the interior is stylish and modern. It is one block away from a tram (subway) stop that is only a couple of stops away from the Cologne cathedral (Dom) and walking distance from the Neumarkt shopping area.

Great place!
Such a great hotel. It seems like it was recently renovated, and it shows. Very unique and beautiful place, courteous staff, convenient parking garage right below the hotel, and the rooms are perfect. Fairly priced, as well. My new go-to place to stay in Cologne!
