This is a great hotel. I live here every year for an exhibition end of january. It is very relaxing and calm. A great location with a wonderful view of the Dome. It is also within walking distance to the exhibition halls (20-25 minutes). The size of the rooms are perfect and the beds very comfortable.

The Mondial is a perfectly pleasant business class hotel in an excellent location adjacent to the Ludwig Gallery and two minutes from the Dom and Hauptbanhof.

As mentioned before, our room was so small that it felt vaguely claustrophobic and the absence of a bath just plain mean. One day housekeeping just didn't bother showing up at all despite me having no recollection of having offended them!

Excellent breakfasts and an inexplicably empty (yet super) restaurant add up to a fairly agreeable stay.

On the positive side, the bed is comfortable and the hotel is very well located to the Dom and the Alltstadt. The view of the DOM from my room was absolutely fantastic The breakfast is nice. In addition, there is a large selection of BBC entertainment stations which is unique for the area since most hotel offer you 3-5 options of English language news and no entertainment stations (without an additional charge).

However, all is not perfect. The duvet rotates open and it took a lot of effort to open it. Like most German hotels I have used, there is only a half door for the shower stall. Worse, there was no tub but only a slight depression in the floor. Therefore, a lot of water ended up on the main floor on bathroom. Luckily, there were plenty of towels to mop up the floor.

You need to pay for Internet connection and, worse yet, connectivity is constantly interrupted. If you plan on doing work in your room, don't count on being a good connection. That is okay because the desk space is very, very small.

If you are looking for a good location, this is a good place. However, I needed to get some work done in my room so I won't be coming back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Dom.

I recently stayed at the Mondial am Dom in Cologne and have nothing but good things to say about the hotel. Its location was very convenient for us - in the centre of the old city, near the cathedral and very close to the main shopping areas. The reception clerk at check-in was friendly and helpful and we had good recommendations for restaurants in the area from the concierge. The staff in both the bar and the restaurant were very nice and helpful. One minor complaint was the lack-lustre French Onion soup in the restaurant, but the cheese plate more than made up for it!
Parking was a little on the pricey side, but taking the 'car elevator' was worth something :-)
I'd stay at the Mondial am Dom again without question.

Just stayed for 2 nights and cannot understand why complementary wi-fi is not included when I have paid 270 euros a night, they just encourage guests to eat and drink elsewhere, there are loads of local bars and restaurants which have free wi-fi, 2 mins walk away. No wonder the restaurant and bar are so quiet.

Apart from the above, location is central, approx 3/4mins walk from the central train station. Accomodadtion acceptable except my room wasnt cleaned properly after the first night, coffee cup not replaced with a clean one, toiletries not replenished. Breakfast ok, buffet style, slow to replenish food and clean glasses for juices.

Some staff were friendly and others quite rude

Room Tip: Stick to the 3rd floor, ideally with a view of the Dom

This was a very comfortable hotel located very close to everything we wanted to see. The room was great and the staff was incredible. They were extremely helpful and friendly. We were there to visit the Christmas markets and the bonus was how close it was to everything else. It’s a very short walk from the train station and very close to the cathedral. It’s also pretty close to the Rhine River which makes for a nice stroll. The Christmas markets were incredible and our favorite one was very close to the hotel. (about one block) The German people are very nice and the food at the markets was incredible. They really know how to throw a festival.
