I recently stayed at the Maritum Hotel Koln on a business trip to the Practical World Hardware Exhibition. I found the hotel really well located as it only one tram stop from Koln Messe and within two hundred metres of teh "oldtown" centre of Cologne. It is also within easy walking access of the main shopping area of the city not to mention the brilliant German transportation systems.
The hotel itself is well laid out with an indoor pool and leisure centre along with some great restaurants. I did use the business centre twice but must say it is very basic as only one person can use it at a time. Not ideal for a business traveller.
I found the staff very pleasant and well spoken in many languages including English.
My only beef I have was teh awful smell in the lobby area of a dirty drain which was present throughout my stay (4 days). This very same smell was present in the en-suite in the bedroom and it appeared to be coming from an grated open drain in the floor. I asked room service to flush some chemicals down it but this did not help much so I covered it up with the floor mat which helped.
Overall it was a pleasant stay but I really hope the management can sort out the drains before my next visit.
