      Historical Traveler Reviews Astor & Aparthotel Cologne

      ¡VAYA, qué descubrimiento!

      from

      Este hotel tiene una ubicación maravillosa para moverse por Colonia. Las habitaciones estaban impecables, eran cómodas y tenían un tamaño buenísimo. El personal era una maravilla y se aseguró de que nuestra estancia fuese perfecta. El desayuno era fantástico y contaba con más cosas para elegir de las que me imaginaba. Su ubicación con respecto a los mercadillos de navidad y las tiendas era una maravilla. También había cerca muchas fantásticas cafeterías y pequeños restaurantes. ¿Qué más puedo pedir? ¡Quizás quedarme una o dos semanas más!

      ¡Recomendaría el hotel para viajes de negocios, para solteros y para parejas gays y heterosexuales!

      WOW, what a find!

      from

      This hotel was in a great location to get around Cologne. The rooms were spotless, comfy and very nice sized. The staff was just wonderful and made sure our stay was perfect. The breakfast was fantastic and more choices than I could imagine. Location to shopping and the Christmas markets was great. Also many great coffee shops and small restaurants near by. What more can I ask? Maybe to stay another week or two!

      I would recommend the hotel for business travels, singles and gay or straight couples!

      Sehr schönes und charmantes Hotel

      from

      Ich war durch meine Firma, während der Photokina, im Astor und Aparthotel untergebracht. Das Hotel ist direkt in der Innenstadt und man kommt sehr schnell zum Messegelände. Obwohl es "nur" 3 Sterne hat, ist der Service, die Ausstattung durchaus mit einem 4 Sterne Haus vergleichbar, bis auf das es kein Restaurant gibt. Die Zimmer sind großzügig geschnitten und sehr schön eingerichtet und es fehlt an nichts. Besonders hervorzuheben ist das Frühstück, eine sehr tolle und vielfältige Auswahl. Durch die Lage des Astor & Aparthotels, gibt es viele gute Restaurants und Geschäfte in der unmittelbaren Nähe. Die Mitarbeiter des Hauses waren immer sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und professionell. Meine Kollegen und ich werden dieses Hotel sicher wieder bei unserem nächsten Aufenthalt in Köln buchen. Es sollte mehr von solchen netten und charmanten Hotels geben!!!

      Tolles Hotel und nettes Personal

      from

      Ich habe dieses Hotel für Freunde von mir gebucht. Da ich meine Freunde selber zu dem Hotel gebracht habe und mir dadurch auch das Hotel anschauen konnte, kann ich nur sagen, dass es ein sehr nettes kleines Hotel ist, was aber einen super Service bietet. Meine Freunde waren auch total begeistert und möchten, wenn sie wieder nach Köln kommen auf jedenfall in dieses Hotel. Alles ist sehr sauber, nettes Personal und ein tolles Frühstück (ich durfte zusätzlich frühstücken). die Zimmer haben mich und meine Freunde sehr überrascht, da wir nicht gedacht hätten, dass diese so toll aussehen und man sich richtig wohl fühlte. Die Lage ist für Köln echt optimal und man ist mitten drin . Meine Freunde und ich geben extra + und können das Hotel echt nur weiter empfehlen!!!

      Great hotel

      from

      There's very little to fault about this hotel. A good location (about 15 min walk from the Dom and 3 mins from metro), in a nice district, especially convenient for the gay bars and clubs.

      The hotel is spotlessly clean, staff were super friendly and were multilingual. The room was a decent size with TV, and plently of strage space and a comfy bed. The bathroom was fine with a shower, sink, bidet and toilet. Our room faced the main street outside which could be a little noisy but I wasn't bothered by it at all.

      Breakfast had a large choice of cereals and also hot items such as eggs, ham and bacon along with cheeses, breads, fruit and a nice range of assorted teas. I guess it's continental Europe thing but I still can't believe smoking is allowed in the restaurant!

      The hotel also has a sauna (though I didn't use it).

      Would certainly stay there again if visiting Cologne.

      Lovely little hotel with charm and very good staff

      from

      I stay here once a year when I attend a trade show. The service is even getting better each year.

      The front staff is very friendly, quick and they fulfill your room wishes when possible. I feel like a welcomed customer there.

      The rooms in the tower-like building are modern and very quiet! Towels, light, bedding, wardrobe, TV: everything top.

      Room-service was top-notch.

      Breakfast is wonderful: coffee, lots of different teas, different breads and rolls, croissants, marmelade, muesli, sausage, cheese, eggs, cereals, and on and on. Only the breakfast room is a bit cool, so you won´t stay there longer than your breakfast takes.

      They got bikes for rent, if you want to explore the city by bike. Not a bad idea!

      The parking is very narrow, but secure, as they open and close the door everytime after you.

      From the hotel you are able to walk around without any problems. Very good location. Very good value. I can recommend it!

      Great, reasonably priced hotel...

      from

      Although a 10min walk from the Dom, this hotel is situated at the end of the main shopping street so is ideal for shopping and eating.

      The hotel is comfortable and very clean with friendly and helpful reception staff.

      The breakfast was good with both hot and cold items available and the food was of a high standard.

      The room was similar to a Travelodge style accomodation and as with many hotels in Europe only had a shower (no bath); the room was both clean and comfortable and ideal for a short break.

      Excellent value for money and we would stay here again.

      Great Hotel, Excellent Breakfast!!

      from

      This 3 Star hotel is very nice and well located. Although, the Dom and the central tourist attractions are about 15-20 minutes walk away, there is a main street which is full of designer boutiques, interior design shops and bakeries, all the way down which makes the walk much more enjoyable! There are also plenty of good restaurants and brauhaus' (pubs!) nearby on another main street, all within a 5 minute walk away!

      The hotel was very clean and had good sized rooms all en-suite with tv and minibar. Power shower is a bonus! Reception staff were friendly and helpful- on one day, we were given only 1 bath towel when there were 2 of us, we informed reception and a bathtowel was provided to us quickly-so service is very good. It was below freezing when we visited Cologne and the heating in our room worked wonders, after a long trek in minus temperatures!!

      The buffet breakfast was excellent! Great choice on offer, with varieties of muesli, fruit salad, bread rolls, ham and salami, hot english breakfast, selection of teas and juices! The breakfast here is truly scrumptious!!

      I would definately recommend you to stay at this hotel, as it's good value for money!! The only downside I can think of, is there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, but they do have larger room types available (like a small apartment) which does provide these facilities. All in all, great little hotel!

      Shoppers Paradise

      from

      Stayed 6 December 2004 for 3 nights with friends. Hotel rooms were of a good size with a chair and table for relaxing. Everything very clean and a good breakfast. Downpoint no lounge to sit and relax or have a drink.

      About 15 minutes walk on the flat from Cathedral but surrounded by very good shops and restaurants in fact its shops and restaurant all the way to the Cathedral!!!. A Christmas market is within 5 minutes walk.

      Easy access to underground about 3 minutes.

      9 out of 10

      from

      The hotel is about 20 minutes walk from the Cathedral. 110 Euros for a double room for two nights. Spotlessly clean and a decent sized room with en-suite facilities. Staff are freindly and informative with a 24 hour reception so no worrying about taking the key with you when you go out. The only reason I didn't give it 10 out of 10 was the distance from the Cathedral area and also no coffee making facilities in the room. I would recommend it to anyone.

      The Cathedral took 632 years to complete. During the war, 90% of the central city was destroyed. Eau de cologne was originated here in 1709 by the Farina family. They have excavated the Jewish settlement a little more than on my last trip and plan to open an underground museum within 2 years. We visited 7 Christmas markets as the weather was nice. Low 40s and breezy. We also went to the chocolate ...

      ... types of sausages with cabbage and mustard, banana & Nutella crepes and beautifully cooked restaurant meals in the evenings. Everywhere we went we were greeted with smiles at my attempt to say please and thank you in German with an East London accent, we tried ice skating, curling and even visited a pirate themed Christmas market on the bank of the river! A truly delightful festive treat that I thoroughly recommend to those that want to experience a genuine German Christmas ...

      ... EVERYWHERE in Europe has many italian restaurants owned by Italians. Thin crust personal pizza 4 stagioni my fav! Doesn't beat the pizza in italy but was delish. Bars were dark and played strange music but local beer was very nice. I had to try the typical german shnapps which was actually nice as well.

      Next stop: Paris, France
