Leonardo Hotel Cologne
Ranked #53 of 263 Hotels in Cologne
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Let me start of by saying that this is one of the cleanest hotels i've seen.
The room and bathroom where extremely tidy. Thumbs up for the cleaning lady!
The continental breakfast was well stocked and there's a lot of choice.
Staff was friendly and helpfull. The hotel is located within 500m of the nearest train station. The train takes you to the city center within 5 minutes.

The only downside I have, is that the showerscreen is a small. This can make the bathroom a bit wet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevators. This reduces the noise.

I cannot rate this hotel too highly. Everything was excellent. The staff on reception and in the large and bustling breakfast room were all most helpful. The buffet breakfast could not have been better - so much variety : eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, rolls, toast, cold meats, cheeses, jams etc etc etc The centre of town is only about 10 minutes max on the tram and the tram stop is only 5 minutes from the hotel. Alternatively, the local train (SBahn) is only 2-3 minutes further on from the tram stop and that'll get you into town in 3-4 minutes. It is just a few minutes on either the tram or the SBahn to the Exhibition centre in Deutz.
I highly recommend this hotel for business and leisure trips and hope to be staying there again in May - if they have a room free.

I've been to Leonardo for multiple times over the years. The location isn't central, but it's quite close to the Fair Center and it's within a walking distance from the Kalk area should you need to go there. It's located right next to the highway though, and that can be noisy. This is your basic business hotel: all the necessary amenities are there, but very little else. A good deal for those who simply want a clean bed to sleep in.

The room was ok. Older building and decor, staff unfriendly (Dear staff, please take note: you are being paid because of the customer.)
The WiFi internet worked. Found the dark hallways very strange at first, if not scary. Five minute walk from tram stop, seven minute walk from S-Bahn (two stops to main train station). I do not eat breakfast, hence cannot comment. Supermarket is next door.

Have stayed in more than a dozen Cologne hotels within the last year. None of these were very comfortable or inviting for longer stays.

I recently had the misfortune of staying at this hotel. The decor is truly early 1980s and the whole place is in need of a TOTAL refurbishment - carpets are stained and room fittings broken. The website boasts of its location - the reality is that it is next to a noisy motorway in the middle of nowhere. There are no restaurants or anything else nearby - just railway sidings and flats. The worst part of my whole experience was my interactions with the staff, be that in the restaurant (which is also poor!) or at reception - they were all unfriendly and unhelpful. The coach loads of Chinese and Russian guests staying at the hotel looked equally unimpressed with their stay.
There are much better (and cheaper) hotels in Cologne - this one is best avoided.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the noisy motorway side of the hotel. Better still, stay at another hotel!

This hotel is clean and rooms are anyhow renovated. Very friendly staff. Breakfast is lower German standard, but they have fresh fruits. THX!
This all does not cover that this hotel is a revival of the 1980's. Furnitures, fittings, carpets, etc. it's a paradise for nostalgic people. Worst thing is that the Cologne highway runs directly in front of the hotel. And all rooms are noisy! Parking costs an extra 10 € per night.

Room Tip: Only go here if you don't mind sleeping with the room windows closed!

this hotel has a great location just of the motorway easy to find. the service is great and done with a smile. The breakfast is the best I have had for many a year. Its close to the trams to get ito the centre of the city but far enough away to be very quiet at night

Room Tip: check the temparature of the pool before jumping in
