“Great Hotel, Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2009

My wife and made our reservations less than 24 hours prior to arrival and booked a King size bedroom. Upon arrival the hotel upgraded us to a suite that was incredible. The hotel itself was immaculately clean and the staff was exceptionally friendly and attentive. The hotel itself is located within very short walking distance the many of the major attractions and to a large shopping area and many dining establishments.

We stayed for 2 nights over the Carnival weekend. The hotel is in an ok location - close to station and cathedral - walking distance to the river.
Service was very good. The breakfast staff are extemely friendly and efficient. good selection of breakfast - worth it as it sets you up till dinner.
Sauna & Gym although small, were very enjoyable and clean. The rooms are cold - they have hard wood floors and very Ikea style shelves and desks - although they may be better quality still the feel of the room is very clinical and business oriented. The finish wasn't to a high standard either - shower door was beoken and allowed all the water to go on the floor. Cologne is interesting for a weekend and people are very helpful and friendly- plus we found it to be relatively cheaper than other parts of Europe.

This hotel could not be in a better location. Steps away from the Dom and from the central train station. The hotel is clean with good amenities. The restaurant serves good food. The staff is extremely friendly and always trying to help. This was a wonderful stay. Rooms are a bit on the smaller side but comfortable nonetheless.

Nicely decorated hotel in all aspects; lobby, bar, restaurants, gym and rooms.

The gym was nicely equipped with modern equipment. However they charged for water.

I had alittle difficulty finding the establishment and it's farther away from the main station and Cathedral than other hotels but still in walking distance.

  • Liked — Great decor
  • Disliked — Not close to the train station

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2008

We stayed in this hotel for a Christmas shopping weekend, and expected a bit more really. The hotel is very functional and modernist (you can tell you're in Germany!). Rooms are decorated very neutrally but almost to the point of being stark, and feel very cold as they have wooden flooring (and why do hotel room designers put the heating unit near the ceiling since hot air rises?). The room was a decent size but the bathroom was tiny, not even a full size bath and it was difficult to close or open the door while standing in the bathroom. Also, as the bathroom had no window (not unusual I know) it had an extractor fan which did not turn off at all so we had to ensure the bathroom door was shut at all times and even then we could still hear it throughout the night. We also heard a fair amount of noise from upstairs, again due to the hard flooring in the rooms. The room maintenance wasn't brilliant - lots of scuffs on walls and a big chip out of the glass sink unit.
We had breakfast included and actually wish we had taken the cheaper room only option - bad coffee! Although there was a lot of choice the food wasn't of a great standard and the restaurant followed the very minimalist look of the rest of the hotel.
The hotel was well located though, and if we'd just wanted somewhere to sleep would have been ideal, but was not worth the amount they charged per night. It has put me off chain hotels in the future, as it was full of business travellers and less geared towards tourists actually spending their own money. Hilton just need to make a bit more of an effort to ensure guests are comfortable and able to relax. I was glad to get home and warm up!

  • Liked — Central location
  • Disliked — It was cold all the time!

We stayed at the Hilton Cologne at the beginning of December. It is a lovely modern hotel and the rooms were well equipped, if a little small. It is in a fantastic location just behind the cathedral and as it is down a side street, you can not hear much outside noise. The location is great for exploring all the different Christmas markets, as well as being close to the shopping areas and the 2 big breweries. The service was spot on, and they take pride in detail e.g. they even provided a birthday card and cake in our room when I arrived. The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the main train station which goes directly to/from the airport so it is very easy (once you have worked out how to use the ticket machines). I would definitely stay here again and would definitely come back for the Christmas markets too.
