I booked a surprise trip to see the Christmas markets of Cologne for my wife's birthday. As it was her first trip to Germany, I wanted it to be memorable and I could not have booked a better hotel. Everything about this hotel was superb - the location, the staff, the facilities, the comfort, the style and the food. We loved returning to this hotel each day for a sauna and to enjoy an early evening drink in comfort before bracing the cold weather again in the evenings. We now have wonderful memories of a fantastic holiday.
This hotel is located between the railroad station and the cathedral, each about150 yards away--a perfect location for visiting the important sites of Cologne. The accommodations were first class.
Only one thing: A party on Saturday night made so much noise that it carried up to our room on the second floor, making it impossible for us to sleep. The hotel had to give us a different room for the night.
The staff was friendly and helpful, gave us some nice suggestions for dining. Hotel´s location is very central. Room service was good as well and we were left a Christmas cookie on the door - nice detail.
Two hotel´s restaurants were fully booked, so we couldn´t get a table. The hotel guarantees the room at 15.00 p.m for check in, but we were not given a room till 16.00, that´s non acceptable for a five star hotel. The room and the corridors´ design and decorations were very simple and normal, for sure not the nicest 5 star hotel we´ve been to, but the most overpriced one.
Everything. A complete success.
Liked it all
Wonderful staff Lovely rooms Piano bar Location
Wonderful Hotel. Went for Christmas Markets which is right out your door. Get breakfast included its easier and we ended up eating there each morning.
I liked the classic style of a old grand hotel and the nice bar. The stuff is very helpful and nice. I like the sensible renovation of a old hotel with the aim of keeping the old style. The breakfast was good and till 11 and check out till 1pm. That is great.
The rooms them self are not made with any passion. They look like a very good business hotel but not like the best place in town. The shower in the bathroom was not clean the silicon joints was black from age. In my opinion that is a no go in any good hotel and for sure not in a 300 Euro room. No nice view from the room. The fitness room window was just opposite and you had to close everything not to be observed. The room service food was extrem poor. The antipasti was very german "Schinkenröllchen" but the cook was for sure never in Italy. Every silly bar there can make that better! The steak was everage well done while I asked for rear but that was good while the meet was poor and it was looking flat like a "Schnitzel" Looks and tasted like a good company kitchen food. For sure that food came not out of the restaurants in the house. My room was 510 as info for the hotel manager in case they care! I changed the hotel after one night to Hyatt while getting same level for half price.
High standard of service Very well maintained property Excellent location next to Cathedral and main train station
No significant negatives.
Great room the lady behind reception said it was her favourite room and she was right it was great. Nice staff and very friendly and assisted in every way
Presentation of the room was excellent. House keeping of rooms is excellent.
Pillows are too soft. Clear glass screens in toilet and shower area not easy to see if they open or closed, especially if wanting to go to the toilet in the middle of the night.
Everything except room size...
there was nothing to dislike as the hotel and staff are fantastic..except for the room size....
Hotel is close to the main railway station, Dom and Old Town. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
Nothing, all good
Staff, position, facilities
The actual building is exceptionally well designed and positioned, making it a true delight to stay there. All the staff are friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful - we were treated like part of their family! This hotel has truly achieved the highest standard of perfection.
Nothing at all.
proximity to town centre
Cost of drinks in bar
Every thing is perfect and very stylish old hotel.
Staff was very friendly and helpfull Hotel in great location beside the Dom and main central railway station.
Had to make a telephone call back to Dublin as my mobile was not working The charge of the call was a rip off
Professionalism (including grooming and dress) and helpfulness of staff Spaciousness and comfort of room Attention to detail in design of room (e.g. roll-away space for luggage) Additional touches in service (preparation of bed, pillow menu, foot mat beside bed) Grand, luxurious presentation of hotel premises (in all areas) Location - 50 metres from both the station and the Cathedral, close to restaurants A truly exceptional hotel experience - I would visit Cologne again just to stay at this hotel
Super Room Great customer service Great location
A beautiful hotel, old school elegance combined with modern facilities and excellent service. Fantastic value for money as well.
The location was fantastic and because we had a problem with the parking, they compensated by offering a free upgrade! The upgrade to a double deluxe was pure bliss. They even gave me a cake on the house for my birthday!
There was no parking available.
