“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Very nice Hotel right on the excebition grounds. Solid rooms although the AC didnt work very well. Bathroom was good but the ammninities not worth 4 star. The German and Internatiotional Bars on the ground floor were good and you need to have a local Koelsch beer. (lager)
breakfast excellent and thats one of the key elements in the Dorint offering. Unfortunaelly the city center is not in walking distance but a 10 Euro taxi ride. All in all good business Hotel

Room Tip: High and river view

We chose the Dorint an der Messe, although it was slightly out of the town centre, mainly because of the good reputation of its swimming pool and sauna, so were disappointed to find out on arrival that the pool and fitness centre were closed long-term for renovation, I think they said all this year! We were not informed of this in advance, (neither were we told that we could use the facilities of a neighbouring hotel, which some other people were told about), however we discovered a fantastic thermal baths a short distance away called Claudius Thermalbad, which were well worth a visit.
The hotel room was comfortable and warm, our only complaints were that there were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room, the towels were hard, not at all fluffy, and the only TV channel in English was the BBC world news!
We did manage to brush up our German somewhat by listening to the German channels, and the choice for breakfast at this hotel was gigantic, a difficult decision as to what the choose to eat!
The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was very clean.
The hotel is located a short distance from the town centre, but right opposite trade exhibition halls, would be ideally situated for someone attending a trade fair at the Koelnmesse.

Dear Guest,
thank you very much that you take your time and gave us your comments. We are sorry about the closure of our wellness area. In case of a fire and the renovation for it, the re-opening of our wellness area will be latest at the end of this year.
We are happy to let you know, that after the opening our guests can enjoy a fully new renovated wellness area with pool and different saunas in our hotel again.
The point that you think our TV channels in english language are inadequate for our international guests , we want to let you know that we know about and will try to find a solution for that point.
We hope that you will give us a second chance to welcome you with a professional and warm service. We would be happy to welcome you again as our guest in the future. Yours Dorint Team

I chose this hotel because I was in Köln for a fair. the hotel is right in front of the hall 10-11. this was very convenient. no transport to take every morning. The breakfast was gigantic ! Huge choice of bread, eggs, fruits, juices, .... We had diner in the hotel once and the food is ok. Meat was tender and the salmon good as well. however this was expensive for the value.
The rooms were very clean and amenities were ok . my only bad experience was with the parking, expensive and very difficult to park large cars.
The hotel is easily accessible by train and subway -10 min walking distance

I have stayed at this hotel on a couple of occasions as it is extremely handy for the Koeln Messe but generally prefer the Radisson Blu around the corner. On arrival I was very disappointed to hear that the spa and pool area was out of action and had been since September! This is something that should have been made clear on booking as the pool is the main plus point over the Radisson. The rooms are very nicely decorated but would be nice to have robes in the rooms as well as a choice of pillow, the ones supplied are as flat as pancakes! The selection of English TV channels is woefully inadequate unless you want to watch news 24/7, can't believe that with all the international travellers that this hotel must service that there is not more of a choice. At the end of a long day at a tradeshow the only thing I wanted to do was get room service and slob out in front of the TV.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room if you are a light sleeper, I was accommodated extremely well and the room was...

The hotel is located very close to the train station and tram railway which makes it very easy to move around the city... The rooms are very nice and clean, full equipped with all necessary stuff and besides that, the breakfast is just amazing!
