Very happy with my recent 3 night stay at the Hotel Santo. It was modern, clean and only a short 10 minute walk from the train station and cathedral. Breakfast offered a nice variety and all the staff were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend choosing Hotel Santo.

LOCATION: Hotel Santo is located in a quiet area, about 10 minutes walking distance from Cologne's main train station and a little outside the old town. The area seemed more residential and while not particularly vibrant, it did seem safe. If you cross Turiner Str., the major street near the hotel, you can find a variety of restaurants and bars....

After 3 years, found the same awsome hotel. I’ve stayed at the hotel Santo in 2013 for a 3 days meeting in Cologne and I stayed at this excelent hotel near the Central Train Station. This week I retuned to another 4 days in Cologne and I chose the Hotel Santo. Perfect as in 2013. The breakfast complete and with...

We checked in quickly. Hotel Santo is about 10 minutes walk from Köln Hbf in a very residential area. Although it was the end September it was still very warm and we were told that rooms on first floor didn't have aircon. However it was noisy if the windows were open as we were above the internal courtyard which opened...

Well designed and well kept, from the smart wrap-around glass exterior to the clean, pleasant and comfortable bedrooms. The staff are friendly, helpful and tend to your every need including (in my case) bringing an iron and board to the room at short notice and providing a tube of toothpaste. Good breakfast with sausage, bacon, fried egg, fish of many...

Something was very welcoming about this hotel and it starts with the staff. The rooms are oversized and so are the bathrooms...all very nice, clean and great size. The only thing for our room was the air conditioner didn't work but other than that we loved it

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Cologne. The hotel is located in a walking distance to the Dom and city centre. The secure car park was also a bonus. Staff are really nice and helpful. The hotel also provided complimentary breakfast. The room was excellent in terms of style, cleanness and size.
