“Very good value for money”
Reviewed 27 February 2009

As previously mentioned by Dublin Explorer, I concur with the facts that the rooms are big (photos enclosed), everything in pristine condition, and the staff were very welcoming and helpful, especially with recommendations for Valentine's restaurants and clubs.

It's right next to a U and S station, with the S13 from the airport, taking you straight there, which was excellent, at a cost of 2.40 euro.

10-15 mins walk to the Dom. Breakfast very hearty indeed. Free internet (with a proviso).

Previously mentioned, the tv, agree with DublinExplorer regarding the size and the language, tried to alleviate that with the free internet access, which would have allowed me to stream my tv from home. Unable to do so as they block those ports, along with those for Yahoo, MSN etc.

Apart from that little niggle, would stay there again and recommend to anyone who asks.

Stayed in Azimut hotel over christmas 2008 with partner. Very central location to Cathedral and other sights of Koeln. Staff very approachable and breakfast hearty if a bit expensive at 15 euros- then it is a 4 star hotel. would recommend this to friends.

Stayed December 2008

For location, size of the room and staff helpfulness we got the most amazing value in the Azimut. We got a triple room including breakfast for €105 per night in December 2008 on the web. Given the quality of our experience I can see prices going up in this hotel.

The room is simply enormous and I reckon has to be easily twice the size of any regular hotel bedroom. The bathroom was about the size of a hotel bedroom – HUGE. The hotel was just 2 months old at the time of our visit and at that stage you would expect teething troubles but if there are any we didn’t come across them. Everything was in pristine condition and the service was great. The hotel is located in a somewhat historic skyscraper building dating from the 1920s. There is large Saturn CD shop occupying the lower levels of the building.

The hotel is located right beside both a U and an S station and is just one stop from the main train station (Haufbahnhof). The location may be a disadvantage if your room overlooks the tracks. Our room overlooked the street and it was very quiet. Once you get your bearings it’s about a 10-15 minutes walk to the Dom (centre of Cologne). There are loads of little restaurants and bakeries within a 5-10 minute walk of the hotel. There is a bar with a limited food menu but no restaurant in the hotel. The receptionists provided us with excellent information on where to eat. Breakfast was wonderful, huge selection and again very friendly helpful staff.

The hotel is a little unusual as there is no Foyer. There is a reception desk and a lift. The helpfulness and friendliness of the reception staff who speak excellent English really made our stay most enjoyable.

One little niggle would be the TV. It was far too small for the size of the room and while it had about 40 channels it had only one English speaking one - CNN.

We would stay there again - the best recommendation that I can make. Go before they start putting up the prices.

  • Liked — Value for Money; Staff helpfulness; Size and comfort of Room; breakfast
  • Disliked — TV with only one English channel
