Superb service and immaculate facilities
The superb level of service began even before our stay in the form of help provided by the Concierge. Patrick made rental car reservations for us, provided tour information and recommendations on gear for the trip. The hotel is immaculately kept and the staff extremely professional. We will definitely return our next visit to KÖLN.

Location and staff, that's all.
Good location, good concierge, helpful staff, spacious rooms but old, A/C is awful and bed too. Sleep wasn't easy. Breakfast is average and pricy, €70 for 2!!!! Parking is expensive too. I might consider another options if I'm coming back to Cologne.
