“what a hotel should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

First impressions count - as we entered the underground car park the auto lights came on and we saw the best decorated car park ever. So onto the reception and this was just as good with very helpful staff who issued out door keys in record breaking time. We requested a double and a twin room and were impressed to find them next door to each other.
The rooms were of a very high standard although lacking tea/coffee making facilities?
The bar area was very well fitted out and the staff were again very friendly and efficient.
The rooms had air conditioning which was a relief as the temp was 30 degrees outside. The hotels situation was 500 yards from Cologne station and cathedral so a short walk and we were in the middle of everything. Breakfast was a nice surprise as full English was available as well as continental options. Overall an excellent hotel

Room Tip: Room at the front gives you a better view even though its the main road.

have stayed many times at Marriott hotels around the world and found them an excellent compromise. This one does not come short as it has the typical hospitality and service you would expect even though the building from the outside is not exactly an eye catcher.
The only negative point is around the breakfast; the restaurant is somewhat unorganized, and seating works on a first come first serve basis. I have also whitnessed two staff members snorting at each other which should mot really happen in public.

Very comfortable and spacious rooms; and nice and quiet despite being a few steps away from the train station.
Friedly staff, very good buffet breakfast, and nice lounge to hang out. Only minus is that there's no free wifi in the room, but there is in the common areas.

For European standards the rooms are very large & comfortable. Lounge access was worthwhile for the lovely breakfasts & afternoon snacks. The lighting was a bit strange but took some getting used to. Concierge Mehmet was very helpful with all of our inquiries. This hotel is located 2 blocks from the Cathedral & train station, so no need to use taxi.

If you look up consistency in the dictionary, I'm pretty sure that Marriott is listed as a synonym. This Marriott property is no exception. It is in a great location, service is good, it's clean, and has a great club lounge. It's a short walk from the Köln train station, which means it's a short walk to the Kölner Dom as well. If you go during Christmas time (which I highly recommend) then you are in a prime location to be able to walk to every Christmas market that Köln has to offer. Granted, you'll want to wear your walking shoes, but it's a good way to see the city. The lounge is fantastic and offers multiple options of the local style of beer, Kölsch. Each time I visit Köln, I will be staying here.

We travelled to Cologne by train so the proximity to the station was a plus although were never once aware of its proximity because of any noise or undesireables.

Day we arrived it was torrential rain so a brolly is recommended if you are walking from station as it is a good 5 minutes.

Staff on arrival very polite and friendly.

Quality of room and amenities very good.

Meal in hotel at their restaurant was very good , again delivered by very courtious staff.

Breakfast quality and selection excellent.

If we return to cologne for more than one night would certainly stay here again.

First time at the Marriott cologne. Centrally located, next door to the railway station (no need for a taxi, which my American colleague got ripped off on without checking location lol). Easy walking to the Dome and restaurants and bars. Hotel is good standard like most Marriott hotels. Staff friendly and helpful, rooms were excellent standard. Hotel has it's own car park which is good, but at €25 per day will add to bill if there for a long time............you also need a can opener to get out if you have something on the large size! Will use again next trip
