About NH Köln Altstadt, Cologne

Hotel with restaurant on the banks of the Rhine

5 minutes to Old Town

Only a 5-minute drive from Cologne Central Station and a 5-minute walk from the Old Town, NH Köln Altstadt is conveniently central. The Rhine is right across the street, 100 meters away, and many of the city's major attractions are also within walking distance.

Chocolate Museum treat

Imhoff Chocolate Museum, where visitors can explore the tropicarium and its cacao trees, is a 4-minute walk away. History buffs will enjoy the Roman-Germanic Museum, a 12-minute tram trip away, home to ancient Roman artifacts from the settlement upon which Cologne was built.

Restaurant and bar

After a day of sightseeing, you can unwind in the sauna or on one of the outdoor terraces, and there's a small fitness center if you want to work out. À la carte lunch and dinner is served in the bistro-style Mediterraneo Restaurant, and Unico Bar is the place for evening drinks.

Earth tones, free WiFi

Invitingly cozy, with warm earth tones and intimate lighting, the 204 rooms feature contemporary decor with striped drapes and leather recliners. Tech perks include free WiFi and digital safes, while minibars provide in-room refreshments.
