“A most lovely and charming hotel”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

A warm and friendly welcome awaited us, very comfortable and nothing was too much trouble for the polite and knowledgeable staff. They guided us to the best night market and made us feel totally at home. A few minutes walk from the enchanting Dom (cathedral) - perfect location, lovely breakfast (as you would expect in Germany) - This one has our seal of approval

Wonderful hotel, nice and quest location about 5 minutes walk from the train station. Very comfortable beds. Incredible breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. It's possible to check-in early. I would highly recommend this hotel to my friends and will stay there again next time I am in Koln.

Booked a single standard room here for 7 nights for a trade show. Cost us more than 250 Eur during the show.
The room is incredibly small (the size of my bathroom in other hotels I've stayed) but very clean. They do not top up toiletries so it's a little annoying.
My room faces the St Ursula church which is also where the street is so I can hear every car that goes by and the street chatter. Also during the weekend, church bells go off for almost an entire hour at 7-8am.
Simple but nice breakfast. Friendly and warm service staff in the restaurant.
Wish I can say the same for the front desk. Sent my pants out for dry cleaning and didn't get them back till 4 days later. There was no sense of urgency despite my daily checking-in with them. Was not at all apologetic as well.
Wifi is free - log-ins are on a per day per device basis. Seems to log off automatically after a few hours so quite a nuisance.

We were arriving late on the train from Brussels but the hotel is really just round the corner from the station. We checked in with no problems and found the staff very helpful.
There was no tea tray in the room and when we asked we were provided with a kettle which we had to pay a deposit for. We got milk and cups from the breakfast room. Seems to be a German thing as other hotels on our trip didn't do kettles either

Really well priced hotel, was suitable for the purpose and would visit again on a personal trip to the city. If you're on a budget this is a great hotel to visit. Close to station and local restaurants and bars.

I stayed in the Classic Hotel Harmonie in the last week of September 2013.

Upon arrival at the main railway station, I orientated myself using the map provided on the hotel website and found it was just a 5 to 10 minute walk away.

The staff in the hotel were friendly and helpful, which is always a bonus to any weary traveller.

Breakfast was wide and varied. I did also see on my second morning that they had changed some of the breakfast options. So take note that variety is the name of the game here instead of churning out the same thing every day.

I would definitely stay here again due its proximity to the major attractions in the city.

We stayed here for one night while visiting the city of Cologne. The hotel is a short walk from the Dom and the central train station. The room, although slightly small, was modern and clean and had air conditioning, which was necessary as it was very warm in Cologne. The staff members were very friendly and were helpful in pointing out areas of interest to visit during our short stay. The breakfast had a good range of options presented in a pleasant and comfortable setting. Overall, although there was nothing exceptional about the hotel, it was very reasonably priced and adequately met our needs during this one-night stopover on our travels through Germany. I would definitely reccomend it for business travelers or for those spending a short time in Cologne. If you have a longer stay or are looking for something with more charm, then I might look elsewhere.

Located in a peaceful side street in the heart of the city, the hotel is a haven of rest and relaxation. With our excellent service full of passion and the outstanding atmosphere of this unique setting you will feel absolutely comfortable, we guarantee. Enjoy the harmony. At Classic Hotel Harmonie. The Convent Today The former Ursuline convent opposite the Romanesque Ursulakirche today gleams in new splendor: With its black slate gables and the bright facade, the Classic Hotel Harmonie is a real gem among historic buildings. And there is a reason for carrying "harmony" in its name. The ancient walls block from the hustle and bustle of city life and let you immerse in a world of peace and tranquility. So everything is in line in our hotel - location, service, design as well as ambiance. Through our stylish lobby you will reach our exquisite restaurant and bar as well as our beautiful rooms. Our Mediterranean garden invites the guests to stay and relax and our spacious roof-deck offers a stunning view over the town with the Cologne Cathedral and the Ursula's Church. Of course you can also use high-speed Wi-Fi and the specially arranged meeting room. In the Heart of the City Cologne has so many attractions to offer: from ancient monuments such as the Cologne Cathedral, the Old Town with its cute little shopping streets and interesting museums to the hot spots of nightlife and the stunning panorama of the Rhine. And best of all - these attractions are within walking distance from our Classic Hotel Harmonie. You can even reach the famous Cologne Trade Fair in about 20 minutes by foot and by the way enjoy the fabulous view over the Rhine. The main railway station is only a stone's throw away from the hotel, so that the ride to and from the Cologne-Bonn airport by public transport takes only a little more than a quarter of an hour. By car, the distance of 18 kilometers neither is a problem because the nearby motorway offers quick and easy access for our motorized guests. ... more   less
