“Good value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012 via mobile

Stayed for one night in this hotel because of the fireworkshow "Kolner Lichter". Both where great! The hotel is nice, trendy and clean. Good location, 100 meter from the U-bahn. 12 euro for a day ticket for 4 persons. Only 10-15 minutes and you are in the centre. Breakfast is very good maybe a bit crowdy when there are touringcars eating at the same time. But there is enough. Rooms are clean and quite. So stay there for pleasure or if you visit the Koln Messe.
Also go to the Kolner Lichter. Its only once a year but its great. Koln rocks.

Stayed July 2012, travelled with friends

Superbly comfortable and luxurious. A little bit of a hike into the city centre - you can either walk across the bridge, otherwise its one stop across the Rhine on the S-bahn and Metro (Koln Messe; helpful when you have a rail pass, not sure how much it costs otherwise). A few good restaurants nearby (e.g. Vapiano) if you don't feel like going into the city. Enjoy your stay in Koln!

The Radisson Blu hotel is located near the Messe in Köln, just outside the city centre. In this way it can cater for both business & tourists. We belonged to the second category and had booked the hotel for 2 nights at a promotion price including breakfast, access to the spa (which we did not used through lack of time) & free parking. Our room was large, very comfortable and quiet. Wifi worked very well and in case it does not there is cable available to connect to the net. The breakfast buffet was very extensive and offered more than enough choice for any preference. A minor point of criticism are the fruit juices, which are not fresh and most of them not real juice but nectar.
Staff are friendly and helpful. They are glad to offer directions and a city map. The tram is just around the corner. There is also a train station nearby taking you to the main train station next to the Dome, but we much preferred the nice walk over the bridge running parallel to the train bridge. It offers very nice views of the city and the Rhine. The bridge is decorated with tens of thousands of locks, the keys of which are thrown into the river as a symbol of 'eternal' love. This makes for a nice glimmering view in the sun.
If you have an interest in modern art, do not miss out on the Ludwig museum, very near the Dome. You will love it.

Nice hotel - but unfortunately not direct in the city center.
Good price for money and close to the major roads in Cologne

In summer you can have dinner in the inner courtyard at the hotel restaurant that has italian dishes

Ideal hotel across the river from Cologne centre, perfect for business as close to conference facilities. Room was good with free wifi, air conditioning, iron & small ironing board, quiet, comfortable. Bathroom had nice shower, good hair drier, lighting could be better for the ladies!

This hotel exceeded expectations. Modern, comfortable rooms, with good-sized desk and large TV.

Free wired Internet in the room, and free wi-fi throughout the hotel.

Bar staff helpful and friendly.

Located 20 minutes walk from the city centre (across the river), but just across the road from the conference centre / Messe.
