Reviewed 19 December 2013

On the 29 November 2013 my wife and I together with 7 other couples went to Cologne for the Christmas Market during which time we stayed 3 nights in the Radisson Bue Hotel. Our stay was superb. The accommodation and food was second to none. However, on the negative side the drinks were very expensive. Would I stay there again the answer would be 'Yes'

As an American, I was always skiddish about hotels in europe.. This hotel is off the hook..
We had a normal 2 bed room.

The staff was so kind and helpful.. it made me feel comfortable in a new place and they were so helpful telling me the sites to visit.

The Room is amazing! . Rain Shower and Heated Bathroom floors.. The View was spectacular.. The bed was nice the the Free internet worked well and was consistent.

Location is right near the metro!

Overall the hotel was excellent

Lovely hotel, great service and friendly staff.

Hotel was located about 20-30 minute walk from the cathedral and the first market but this worked for us. The weather held out but if it doesn't you can grab a taxi or the subway and you'd be right outside the cathedral anyway.

This hotel was nice enough but a little bit expensive we thought. The rooms are nice but nothing spectacular. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was 25 euro. The level we were on smelt like stale cigarettes but i do believe we may have been on the smoking level. Good location right next to lanxess arena and a tram to take you straight into the city All in all a nice hotel.

If visiting cologne, this hotel is a must, the staff are amazing and cannot do enough for you, the rooms are comfy spacious and of a high standard very very clean, we have had the best sleep ever in this hotel, the selection at breakfast is massive and all of high quality with a constant flow of coffee and plenty of vegetarian choice. With two restaurants on site and the paparazzi bar serving food you are spoilt for choice.
We booked this holiday as a package deal and really thought we had struck gold when we arrived there after our travels.
Just across the Rhine from the city centre it's a 20 minute walk and you are at the Dom which is simply breath taking, if visiting for the christmas markets the Elf market in the old town is a must as this will give you a real taste of traditional Germany with its ice rinks in the centre it was simply magical, with apple punch and gluwien galore we loved it.

We stayed at Radisson Blu Cologne in early December to visit the christmas market. Check in was swift, room was spacious for European standard, bathroom however was lacking in amenities.

I am unsure if the room service remembered to replenish the amenities as I have stayed in other Radisson Blu with way more bathroom amenities.

One complaint that I had was the pillow, it was way too soft and provided no neck support whatsoever. I couldn't seem to find the extra pillows as stated in the in-room pillow menu leaflet.

Breakfast was included in our room rate, and it was pretty good with lots of varieties.

Locationwise it's a bit outside the center, but tram stop is within walking distance.

What a fantastic hotel! The rooms were first class and the structure of the hotel was just stunning. The breakfast was epic, I've never been so excited to get up for breakfast! We visited the Christmas markets in Cologne and Koblenz. Loved the massive Christmas tree in the lobby too!
