Reviewed 15 November 2012

The hotel is located quite close to the University, which was a plus for me. Even otherwise, there is an U-bahn stop close to the hotel, hence connectivity is quite good. The hotel is old, and looks like it could do with some overhauling. The staff were not particularly hospitable. They were not rude, but their behaviour could do with some improvement.

The room was small but functional and clean. The bathroom was tiny. The room lacked a proper mirror; the only one was in the tiny and cramped bathroom. The hotel had breakfast buffet which was sufficient.

Overall, I would call this an average hotel. I did not have any negative experience, but nothing positive to remember Hotel Ariana during my next visit either.

Hotel was a long way out from City centre. (30-45min walk) Tram stop is near the hotel and takes about 15mins to get in to town. Room was very small and very noisy. The hotel has managed to fit a lot of rooms in to a very small space. Room and bathroom were clean. Breakfast was not good, very basis buffet.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms near the stairs

There is nothing of note in this hotel. They had wifi, location was convenient enough with access to the s-bahn, rooms were ok. Staff was often not around which was annoying, but I guess it is a small family-run affair. It does the job but seemed a bit overpriced (I would thought 70EUR instead of 90EUR to be honest). No character or warmth is that matters to you.

Stayed here for a weekend break, to go to Cologne christmas markets. On arrival receptionist not very welcoming made us feel that we were imposing on her. We had booked 2 rooms online and she seemed to have trouble finding our booking. Once we had booked in she then informed us that the credit card machine was not working so we had to pay in cash. Room was quite small no dressing table, mirror, tea/coffee making facilites or welcome tray. Was clean, bed ok although double bed two single duvets (one with a hole and a stain) and only one pillow each. Breakfast was ok but on both mornings they ran out of bread and were having to nip down the road to the bakers for more rolls. Being a continental breakfast would have thought that this was a vital part. Dont think we could have coped with staying here for a week. Only good thing was that the hotel is situated on a tram line so very conveniant for the centre of Cologne.

We booked four rooms for eight nights at the Collette for our team attending a trade show. This was quite possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.
The entrance is from the street to the staircase, and anyone can walk in. The rooms are 'mean' in every respect. The place is not welcoming in any way. The batteries in the smoke alarms were low so there was intermittent bleeping.
We had a very robust discussion with the Iranian man at the desk. When I asked for the name of the rating agency that had awarded it 2 stars, he said it was 'an informal' rating. We all stayed one night and then walked out after paying our bill. We took a chance and eventually found a truly excellent German family run hotel, at lower cost, just behind the station.
It's a pity as the area is not too bad and there is a superb Italian restaurant just a few shops down towards town. It is also right on the tram line to Neumarkt.

This hotel is very well reachable by public transport. Just be carful about the constraction of the U-bahn, the lines are different every fortnight. From the pictures the rooms are all right, good value, but there is 1 exception, room no. 1 in the garden. Don´t get yourfelf accomodated there in winter, there is just a gas heating which is not very reliable. Anyway this room was quiet and cosy. I apreciated breakfast till 11 am and its posh restaurant with good menu. When in Cologne don´t forget to climb up the Dom and visit the chocolate museum - it is splendid.
