We spent one evening in Renaissance Cologne. First of all, the location is ideal, 10 minutes from the city centre, but right next to the very animated Rudolfplatz district, which we really enjoyed.
Do not use the hotel parking lot, instead use the one in front of the hotel, it's half the price (12 EUR per day).
We really enjoyed the helpful staff, we came at noon whereas our reservation indicated not to check in before 3pm, but they made sure we had a nice room and did not make us wait.
The room is very modern, tasteful decoration.
We regret however that they charge for the internet. 12,50 EUR for 24 hours. You can buy by minutes too, but it's quite expensive.
The bed was not as large as we hoped (since it was supposed to be king size) and a bit too soft to our taste.
Breakfast was good. Note that you can order an omelette directly to the waiter if you like, it's free of charge.
All in all, a great stay in the heart of the beautiful city of Cologne. Would definitly recommand this place.

We stayed one night at this hotel. And what a nice and warm welcome we got.
A huge room and bed, lots of towels and pillows. What you expect for this kind of hotel.
One thing i dont like : the breakfast is expensive - up to 24 euros for a small buffet, we went downtown.
The hotel is located 10 min. from downtown. There a parking in the basement for 25 euro for a day - cheaper on the street. Free from 23-9 a.m. after that time 2 euro pr. hour.
We got it through priceline ( half prize) and payed very less

Check-in was quick, efficient and with a smile. We were offered an upgrade to a club level room (including internet access, full breakfast, free parking and non-alcoholic drinks from the minibar as well as one pay-TV) to which we happily agreed. Our room was spacious, nicely furnished and clean. Front desk, room service and housekeeping responded in an extremely attentive manner to all our requests. The club lounge was cozy and offered a decent selection of drinks and appetizers. Overall, the hotel made a comfortable and well-kept impression and was very centrally located. The only (minor) drawback were the spa area and the gym which both felt a bit cramped and cheerless. I stayed at this hotel before and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again since it offers excellent value for money.

I used Marriott rewards points for this one-night stay, so I can't comment on the value of it. But when it lists for 200 EUR per night, that's more than I would pay for a hotel to satisfy my very basic requirements: clean bathroom, non-smoking room, and big bed. This hotel surpassed my standards and it holds to Marriott standards. Location is easy to reach on foot from the U-Bahn and is also easy to reach many bars and cafes in the area. Cab ride to the central station was about 10 EUR. Would recommend this hotel.

Stayed here a few times and always found it good although a little on the expensive side. Staff are friendly and it isnt too far from the Alter Markt to have a few beers.
