Very elegant and old fashioned five star hotel. Looks spectacular throughout and is perfectly located in the very centre of the city. High class establishment and everything is exactly as you would expect from this kind of place. The service is top quality, friendly staff who are happy to help with any enquiries, and everything about the hotel just oozes class and elegance. Spectacular large rooms, beautiful communal areas and the restaurant and breakfast was amongst the best I've experienced. The free minibar was an excellent touch and you can swap what you have in there, which was great.
The only downside was that the "spa" was extremely disappointing, very small and basic which was completely out of character with the rest of the hotel. But as this would have been a bonus I won't let it affect my overall view of the hotel, especially since I got such an amazing deal on my stay here. This is a perfect base for exploring the beautiful city of Cologne.More
