I spent two nights at the Novotel in Cologne, while on business. This hotel is conveniently located and easy to find. I had a rental car on this trip and parking space was ample and easily located in the basement.
Check-in process was quick and efficient. I received a room on 2nd floor and even though I was just on second floor, I hardly heard any street noise. Wireless access was fast and free. I was easily able to make VoiP calls via wireless through my entire stay.
Breakfast was just fine with a wide assortment of food. I didn't try the restaurant for dinner so I can't speak to that. The bar area was accessible and active in the evenings with dozens of guests enjoying evening drinks.
My room was clean, though the bed was a little more firm than I desired, but that's purely a taste thing. The AC worked well and kept room clean on 25C days. The bathroom was fine, though a little small.
So overall a good experience and would visit again. My only negatives about the hotel were that I needed to go to front counter to get parking ticket validated to exit. At times in morning, the check-in/check-out counter can get quite busy adding about 5 mins of time before I can get my parking ticket validated. I also was unable to find a vending machine. Maybe it was there and I missed it.
