Quality modern hotel with nice amenities, though a bit far from the old town and city centre. There are buses, # 132 & 133 nearby, alt, stadtsud (old city south) is not the old city and the Rhine river is blocked by large corporate buildings .

Enjoyed the Hop on Hop off bus.
Breakfast was very pricy. Usually Novotel has a fresh omelette selection. Service was very good, friendly, helpful staff.

Exceptional 10.0
Outstanding hotel with a quiet, comfortable stay!
We escaped a sub-par Airbnb and stayed 2 days in the Novotel in Koln. Wish we'd have booked it first, because it was a great hotel. 10 min walk to the metro in a safe neighborhood. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable small rooms with comfortable amenities. Nice area for pets to walk and use the bathroom. Thick, sound-proofed doors were a huge plus as you don't hear constant door slamming from neighbors as with most hotels. We are definitely Novotel fans after this stay and will book with them again in the future!

Hotel was close to cathedral and central station. Also very close to Chocolate Museum and Rhine. Very clean. However was lacking in amenities like toothpaste and brush. Staff was polite but not very helpful. Excellent breakfast.

Novotel never disappoints!
We absolutely love Novotel hotels and enjoyed our stay at this location. The room was clean and we greatly appreciated the sofa bed already fully made when we arrived! We enjoyed the variety of choices at breakfast, especially the chia pudding for me! My boys enjoyed the hot breakfast options like bacon, egg, and sausage!
