      Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Cologne City Center

      Excellent Hotel and close to the Christmas markets

      from

      Have just come back from Cologne, excellent Hotel, right on the doorstep of 2 Christmas Markets and across the road from tram and bus stops. Breakfast buffet excellent with huge choice. Room excellent, clean and well appointed (ours had view of Dom). Dont ask reception for Taxi, they use Private Hire which costs almost double.

      Crowne Plaza, cologne - great hotel

      from

      stayed here for 3 nights in 2004. Terrific hotel - very high standard, nice big rooms with all the usual facilities you would expect of a hotel at this level. You can often get quite competitive rates.

      I have to disagree with the review that suggests the hotel is not a long way from the centre as it is at least a 15/20 minute walk to the Dom and Railway station.

      However that said this is **NOT** an issue as there is public transport on the doorstep that can get you anywhere in no time - Huemarkt is just one stop away and this stop is literraly the centre of the public transport network.

      Fabulous hotel very highly recommended

      Great Hotel

      from

      Just on the edge of the Old City near and old city gate. Beautiful hotel with an awesome staff. Curtious and helpful. Best breakfast buffet in europe

      Crowne Plaza - Very Good

      from

      Excellent hotel in a very good location. Lots of bars and shops around and about a 20 min walk to the Cathedral.

      Rooms are very clean and spacious with good facilities.

      Nice reception and bar area.

      A big plus point is the superb leisure faciliities, which inlcude a gym, sauna, solarium and a great swimming pool.

      For the price, this hotel is a bargain.

      Lovely and inexpensive

      from

      What a hotel .a 5 min walk from the hohe str, the shopping street. This hotel is very inexpensive (100 Euro a night for a double) and is top quality. Swimming pool included in the price. Pay the 6 euro more for a room with a view, you won't regret it.

      Highly recommended!

      from

      We enjoyed our stay at Crowne Plaza Hotel Cologne on April 17 and got good rates for Euro 100/night! The hotel staff were friendly, efficient and giving their best service to their customers. We noted that the concierge was extremely helpful and polite. The rooms were spacious, bright, clean and well-maintained. Breakfast was delicious and well-prepared. Location is good, in city center and closed to shopping area, restaurants & fast food outlets, what can we ask for more? We loved this hotel and will definitely come back to stay if we visit Cologne again.

      Very Nice Hotel, Good Location

      from

      We stayed here for the Christmas Markets and had a wonderful time. The hotel is in a good location with easy access to the Trams and Undergound. The Dom Cathederal is a good 20 min walk but the public transport is so good there is no problem. Rooms are very clean and spacious and the breakfasts were good.

      An ideal choice for visiting the Christmas markets

      from

      This is an excellent hotel choice for a stay in Cologne. It is ideally situated for visiting the Christmas markets. They are all within walking distance or a short tram ride away. The market at Rudolfplatz is literally just across the road. The hotel itself is superb. There are four large lifts to all floors. Alternate floors have ice machines. The rooms are clean, large and air conditioned. The beds are extremely comfortable. All the staff seem to pride themselves in providing the best possible service. Nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast was an absolute feast. I have never seen so much choice offered at any of the hotels I have stayed in before. Another plus was the fact that breakfast is available until 11:30 at the weekend in case you oversleep! Late checkout was no problem at no extra charge. The Chrismas decorations were enchanting and the lobby bar very relaxing. The hotel has its own reastaurants or if you prefer to eat out, there is an abundance of restaurants catering for all tastes in the immediate vicinity. Alternatively the Underground network can be reached by lift from just outside the hotel to take you wherever you please.

      We really enjoyed our stay at The Crowne Plaza and our days out in town. It seems to us that the good citizens of Cologne are some of the friendliest we have encountered. The only thing we found irksome was the fact that most of the taverns and bars, although they appear quite charming and picturesque, had us choking and gasping for breath if we poked our heads inside. Very few, if any, operate a no smoking policy and smoking appears to be a national pastime.

      Crowne Plaza Cologne is First Class

      from

      Just back with wife and 13 year old daughter after a long week-end stay. Really enjoyed the Crowne Plaza. Hotel was clean without being clinical. Rooms comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities replenished each day. Daughter enjoyed the pool. Nice lounge bar. Above all the staff at the hotel were first class, friendly, helpful and with a sincere smile. It has Investors in People status. It's a nice walk from the hotel into the City lots of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. If you are disabled as I am it is also well positioned for transport around the City with Metro and Tram just 50 yards away. To get to the main station which is next to the Dom Cathedral get a tram no. 1 or 7 (which run every few minutes) one stop to Neumarkt and then get the Metro two stops. The tram also takes you two stops to Heumarkt, nice square again with lots of nice eating places and just a few minutes from the Chocolate Museum, the Rhine (for cruises) and the Old Town. Cologne is a lovely place, people are friendly, lots to see and do. Will definitely go back. Enjoy your stay.

      Loved the Crowne Plaza in Cologne!

      from

      I've just come back from an excellent stay at the Cologone Crowne Plaza (November 15 & 16/03). I would certainly visit the hotel and lovely city again. The room rate for a queen bed was reasonable at $80 euros per night. I booked this through their own web site and probably lucked out with the rate for this time of year.

      Front service staff were polite, courteous and efficient. The room temperature was a bit cool and they brought up a space heater for me within 10 minutes of my request. The pool was practically our's and was great for swimming laps. The sauna was excellent as well, however, there is a $9 euro per person charge.

      The room was very spacious and had a beautiful view facing the Dom (cathedral). Bathroom had the standard amenities and features. If you're used to North American standards travelling abroad, this is a good place to stay.

      I notice one previous critique indicated you needed walking shoes from this location. That is definitely not the case! The hotel is located in a prime spot in Cologne with many fabulous German, Italian, Spanish, and American restaurants nearby. Starbucks is up the street. You don't really need to leave the hotel location to access anything. If you are interested in seeing the cathedral, your walk is through a pedestrian zone filled with wonderful cafes and shops to reach it. It's a very pleasurable and idyllic walk and route.

      As you can tell, I thoroughly enjoyed the city and my stay at the hotel. I definitely received a bargain with the price with none of the standards being compromised in the process.

People were dressed up everywhere like it was Halloween and we later discovered it was a carnival. Annissa tried the currywurst and I had a foot long bratwurst with fried potatoes and a creamy cabbage. The people next to us had pork knuckles and what must have been a 6 foot long bratwurst. I also tried ...

      Our next stop was the Cologne Christmas Markets where Kate and Roy took to the ice for a couple of hours ice skating while Nathan and Traci headed to the bar for a kinder punch (Traci) and a gluhwein (Nathan) to warm up. Kate and Roy had a fun time skating even if there were a couple of falls!

      Our day in Cologne was great and we are sure the memories of this day will stay with us for a long time to come.

      ... many miles on the tram and underground, the lady on reception explained where to get on and off the tram and the timetable (every 20 mins) the station was only 5 mins walk from the hotel front door and a tram was waiting to depart when I got there.


      I got off at the HBF, Dusseldorf's main station, it's a very busy station with thousands of people going about their business, many shops and cafes in the station and the place had a real buzz, it's the ...

      I arrived at Birmingham airport after taking two trains to get there about 90 mins before take off time, I had used the auto check in on line and printed a boarding pass before leaving ...
