We stayed at this hotel due to it's location and many of the reviews. We have stayed in many upscale hotels around Europe but the Maritim Koln seemed out of the ordinary as far as charging extra for everything. The list: 19€ per night for parking (which had a very difficult time in letting me out -thanks for the help Front Desk or we might still be sitting there! 21€ per for breakfast, very good but it should be at that price. 4.95€ per day for WiFi - really should be included as for every other hotel during our most recent stay. Newspapers were available in the extra charge breakfast area - seems a little presumptive?
I liked the facility, the room (5th) floor overlooking the Cathedral and the great shower but really, really hated the totally flat pillows. I can honestly say that they are the worst excuse for laying your head on that I have had in as long as I remember.
Overall, you could do much worse but the Maritim group really needs to address the feeling of pinching pennies when selling an otherwise upscale product.
