Firstly I'd like to say, I stop in a lot of 3-4 star hotels for Business, usually for around 3-5 days. I am not picky and this is comfortable. However it lacks a few basics which other hotels around it do very well.
1. It is 2013, this is marketed as a business hotel yet has no WiFi in any of the rooms. They supply you with a network cable on request so that one computer can connect to the internet. This is useless if you are in a twin room with another colleague. Not to mention smartphones/tablets.
This would be at best mediocre if it wasn't for the fact that the wired connection is also poor, it allows you to do limited browsing. There is wireless in the lobby, but again that barely works.
2. The beds, I was in a twin room, and as most hotels in Germany the twins were together as a double these were easy enough to split. However they were roughly as wide as a coffin. I'm 5ft 10 and athletic so not the largest guy and I felt they were tiny. My colleague is 6ft 5 (200cm) and he had a nightmare time.
There is plenty of space in the rooms and other than the beds they are furnished to a nice standard.
The biggest kicker here is that there are 2 other 4 star hotels in walking distance, the Art'otel and the Novotel. I've stopped at both of these and they are both vastly superior to what the NH Koeln has to offer.
If either of those have availability, I will choose them both over this every time. Especially the Art'otel.
