Loved my stay at Insel. The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was nice, room size was perfect, room was quiet and clean as was the hotel. The American bar / restaurant next door was amazing also. Very handy. Close to train stop / stations, close to shops, bridge to city, lanxes arena. Thank you. Will stay again.

My colleague & I stayed here for 5 nights whilst exhibitioning at the koelnmesse. The hotel is a 10 min walk from East Entrance & we walked there & back every Day. It is in a perfect location for restaurants & a 20 min walk from 'old town'. The negative: the rooms are very very warm (without heating on) &...

Very friendly staff (for a city centre hotel). Room was a little on the small side, but soundproofing excellent, and enough space for one to sleep and work (which was all I needed!) Excellent public transport links and location. The breakfast was one of the best I've had anywhere in Germany (and I'm a real German-breakfast-o-phile!)

I have stayed in this hotel three years running and cannot recommend it highly enough. Very clean, very friendly and very convenient. Close to a train station and a short walk across the bridge to the Dom.

The hotel is next to the Arena and Convention Centre, two minutes' walk from the Koeln-Deutz mainline railway station and right next to a U-Bahn station so it is very accessible. The cathedral and city centre are a pleasant 15 minute walk across the Rhine, or a short ride by U-Bahn. The hotel itself is clean, friendly and comfortable. Decor...

We have now satyed in the Insel hotel three years running while attending trade fairs in Cologne/Deutz. Accessability to the fair is a 5 min walk and into the city- just a walk over the bridge. There is also an excellent train and metro system (many trains from the airport actually stop on this side of the Rhine-Deutz-- so one...

A great little family run Hotel. We asked for a no smoking room, and a no smoking room we had, with comfortable beds! OK we had no air conditioning but there was a fan which made the situation more comfortable. and we knew we didn't have air conditioning when we booked! The whole hotel was beautifully clean, the staff were...
