The hotel Santo in a quiet location, in the heart of Cologne, and walking distance to the Cathedral, has a straight forward atmosphere since its renovation, but is not lacking in warmth.The stylish rooms are fitted with parquet floors, and have high shine varnished furniture and natural stone floors in the bathrooms.The hotel in the middle of art and culture in the lively cathedral city, has the philosophy “attention as a present to the guest “.Since August 2012 all rooms at the Hotel Santo are refurbished. We are convinced to meet your expectations.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights as we were in Cologne attending ISM . The worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at and I have travelled a lot. Racist owners I guess and I feel like I was ripped off. They had already decided that we were stupid and can be treated unfairly. Felt

We stayed at Hotel Santo for one night and felt very comfortable. We were greeted by very friendly staff and could even choose the floor we would like to stay on (I guess it was not fully booked). The rooms were modern and clean. The bed was comfortable and the area was quiet. I

I stayed 2 nights only in this hotel. I found it quite disappointing. The room was quite big but pretty spartan. The restroom was ok but I found an hair in the shower. It was really well visible on the white background. Breakfast not bad, but only what you would expect to find

Hi, as tracey already mentioned, you dont need to prebook. There are machines at the trainstation directly at the airport and it costs you not 270€ thats way too much! You pay for one way from the airport maybe 5€ to the mainstation and from there it is just a 5min walk to the hotel :)

Taking the train to the Main Train Station in Cologne, which is what I did, will be far cheaper than a taxi. I was going from the Dusseldorf airport. The hotel is about a 10-12 minute walk from there. The hotel is by the corner of Dagobertstrasse and Domstrasse. For dining nearby, you'll find many options on the other side of nearby Turinerstrasse, a major street. I had a nice stay at Hotel Santo.
