Reviewed 4 August 2012 via mobile

Rooms are good, staff very helpful and good location. Downsides: Very expensive wifi; room service kithen is very poor, just about edible food (restaurant kitchen is better). Lindner hotel group have taken it over from Marriot so hopefully the bad elements will be addressed. Doesn't yet warrant 4 star

Stayed July 2012, travelled on business

Reviewed 7 July 2012

Stayed for two nights, getting the type and location of room we requested in advance. Reasonable sized room. T.V. old fashioned (not flat-screen). Carpet stained in several places. Bed valance very stained - it was removed with an apology (not replaced).

Bathroom on small side, but adequate. Good range of toiletries. Bathrobes and towels had seen better days. Time the hotel got new stock.

Air con just about coped on what were medium-hot days and nights. A couple of other advance requests were not dealt with and we had to chase them up.

Comfortable bed.

Very good breakfast, wide choice and enough waiting staff around.


All staff were as friendly as we always find them in Marriott group hotels.

Only 5 to 10 minute walk to main shopping area.

Room Tip: High up at the back of the hotel should give you the best chance of a quiet night in a busy city.

The hotel isn't the most new or modern. Our rooms were nice though, very comfy beds but the bathrooms were small. We had an executive suite with Bvlgari bathroom products. However, wifi wasn't free. The hotel is located within 10 minutes walking distance from the Kolner Dom.

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
