Reviewed 3 August 2014

That was the worst hotel i have ever had the misfortune of staying in.
A three star hotel but accommodation was worse than a two star hostel.
Mattresses were knackered, pillows were flatter than an after eight mint, only way to get a decent pillow was to completely roll up the duvet.
No air-conditioning which ment that the rooms heat up to the point that if you have anything damp it will dry in around three seconds. If you opened the window to cool the room down you would be greeted by the smell of thai curry and constant noise untill 6am then it started again at 8am.
Only redeeming feature was the shower.
If you value your health and sanity stay elsewhere!

Had to stay here because nothing else was available in Cologne due to a trade fair. Small room, not very clean but helpful front desk. Basic breakfast. Location not terribly good. The Thai restaurant in the same building as the hotel serves very good, inexpensive food. Would not stay here again if I had a choice.

Tobacco–smoked room (curtains, carpeting, beds..)? Check.
Chewing gum traces on bathroom floor? Check.
No air conditioning and hearable-at-nights tram line nearby? Check.
Shower plumbing leaking water? Check.
Elevator stops between floors, so you have to drag your luggage up several steps? Check.

To be objective, breakfasts are quite good and reception personnel is very friendly and sincere.
But overall — it was very disappointing experience.

I stayed two nights at the Conti Hotel in Cologne, in March 2013.
The hotel was very good value (I think University of Cologne have a special deal with the hotel). It was clean, with somewhat basic but comfortable and perfectly functional rooms. Breakfast was very good. Internet access was free, but I couldn't get a good signal in my room. It was fine in the lobby, where a PC is available for guest use.
My room smelled slightly of cigarette smoke, but was spotlessly clean. I would have welcomed a kettle and cups, but according to my German colleagues, this is not typical of German hotels. There was a vending machine in the foyer.
I arrived quite late, but the receptionist explained exactly where the rest of my group had gone. Every member of staff was helpful and polite, speaking excellent English. One of my group had a problem with their return flight and the receptionist spent over an hour on the phone and internet helping them sort it out - then made them a mug of tea at the end!
The location is good; the "Belgian Quarter" is close to the university and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. I felt quite safe walking alone in the evening. It is also convenient for trams and buses.

Room Tip: Internet signal varies from room to room, but I couldn't give a specific area to choose. Rooms a...

the hotel is centrally located. nice and clean hotel with decent rooms. bed was comfortable. bathroom was small, but sufficient. the breakfast was good.

the room had no air-conditioning or fan; and hence it was very hot. since the hotel is situated amidst a busy neighbourhood, keeping the windows open resulted in an absolute lack of privacy. the other drawback was the noise.

but overall, the hotel is a very good value for the money.

I visited this hotel with a group in February 2012. It is in a good location and the hotel staff were friendly. Breakfast was fairly standard but there was enough choice.
Overall I would be happy to reccommend this hotel for anyone looking to have a short break in Cologne.

I was attending a very popular exhibition in Düsseldorf, and my travel agent found this hotel for a reasonable price in Cologne, as every hotel nearer the venue was either full or extremely expensive.

I wasn't expecting luxury, but I found the Conti too basic for a 3* hotel. Old furniture and TV, small bed, no desk... but at least there was free internet. On the positive side, breakfast in the morning was OK, and it wasn't too far away from some good restaurants.

Not bad, but I'd rather go somewhere else next time.
