We were passing through Cologne by train and had a one night stopover. Consequently, an important criteria for us in choosing a hotel was close proximity to the train station. We were not disappointed as the Hilton really is very close to the station entrance, only 3 to 4 mins walk away. This also means it is almost as close to the Cathedral so has an ideal central location.
Check-in and check-out experiences were really well handled by English speaking staff. Bedroom was very nice and comfortable, on the first floor to the back, quiet and the air conditioning worked efficiently. There was an ice machine available along the corridor from our room which was useful. Not included was Wifi which we did not bother paying for.
We chose to eat in the hotel in the evening and whilst a little pricey (bottle of water €11), the meal itself was really good. Breakfast was included in our room rate and was as good as any we have had anywhere. Excellent spread available, the chef also cooks items such as a fried egg whilst you wait to ensure freshness. Other than the grossly overpriced water, top marks to the restaurant and restaurant staff for both meals.
Not the cheapest hotel in Cologne but location was first class for our purposes and overall experience very good.
