“Fabulous hotel for a short break”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

Renaissance Hotel in Cologne is a hotel with a real luxury touch to it and is ideally placed in the city centre. The breakfast is very extensive and delicious. The bar is very welcoming. Although part of the Marriott Group, the hotel has a family feel with it as the staff are very friendly and remember you when you return (and not just Reception desk).

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the front main street - there is no noise and there is more light

First the negatives...needed to check in for flight back to Stansted but you have to pay to use the Internet. Minimum charge was 14e for 90 mins as they didn't have any smaller session cards available even though I only needed 5 minutes. No wonder the PC room was always empty. And when I use a hotel I like to be given the impression at least that I am the first person to use the room. Alas the mattress valance could have told the history of that bed given the amount of rather dubious looking stains on it. Informed housekeeping but it wasn't changed. Room 233 if you're reading guv. Vintage television set. Lots of big dark furniture in room felt slightly oppressive. And of course the obligatory hair in the bath when pulling back the shower curtain. These are schoolboy errors for a hotel of this calibre, but didn't really affect our overall stay. Positives...breakfast was magnificent with so much to choose from. Nice relaxed feel around general areas and helpful staff, especially Jenny the bar manager. Always friendly and attentive, mixed excellent cocktails for the girls and gave us details of good bars in the area while keeping my Heineken coming. She was great. We decided to have a meal in the restaurant one evening when it was raining too heavy to venture out, and it was very nice indeed. Would definitely return.

We stayed at this hotel during the Cologne Carnival. It was centrally situated and the rooms are pretty much standard. The breakfast was good.

I spent a copule if nights in this hotel and I can confirm that the staff is absolutely kind and professional and the customer satisfaction is kept in the right account.
Breakfast was incredibile and the executive lounge, even if was small, was open 24/7...nice service!!!
Only remark: my room was at the second floor and I think that some updates are mandatory...

I had great time in this hotel. Rooms were modern furnished and reasonable in size, very well cleaned.

The location was in a quiet area, 20 minutes walking from Cologne Cathedral and downtown.

The best thing was the breakfast, very fresh, tasty and vast in options.

The swimming pool was very small. The jacuzzi was only a small part of the pool which had only a bit of water streaming.
