Well designed, but tiny rooms
The location of this hotel seemed at first terrible - there was a construction site across the way, but I was later happy with its location just in the altstadt. Great restaurants on the block just behind the property. The decor was fine to above average, but the downside was the fact that while extremely efficient and minimal the rooms are really tiny. I was alone in a double room and would have gone mad if I'd been there with someone else. Also, if you are planning on using the gym there, think again. There are three cardio machines there. While I was there the bicycle was pretty much working, the treadmill was broken and the rowing machine worked, but the display was broken. Overall I would recommend the hotel, but with reservations (no pun intended).
Superb. says it all!
The location is right at the heart of Cologne, Just opposite the Cathedram and within just a few steps of the the main train station. Looks quite ugly on the outside, but when you step inside you discover a quite elegant surroundings.
My room overlooking the Cathedral was spacious, the bed extremely comfy and the bathroom large and convenient. I spent plenty of time there.
I also had the most amazing breakfest at my room,
It was a cart filled with lots of goodies - Jams, Cruasaints, sweet rolls and a cheese tray.
I loved it !
Fantastic location, great bed and super shower
Stayed here for just one night to visit the Christmas market. Fantastic location (though difficult to find with roadworks and building works everywhere in the city centre). Room looked straight to the cathedral - what view! Three markets within a couple of minutes walk. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room wasn't the largest I've stayed in but perfectly adequate. The bed was sooooo comfortable - heaven. And the shower - a big walk in job - was super. had a shower to freshen up, one to warm up, another before bed, one to wake up and one to freshen up before the journey... any excuse really.
Great value too.
5-Star that disappointed us
The hotel is very central.
We had a room with Dome view. These rooms are very noisy as there is street just in front. The rooms are very small, especially for 5-star.
The breakfast service was a disappointment. The staff has to be trained.
I recommend to choose the Hilton or the Intercontinental as there are also central and much better.
This was a very nice and comfortable hotel only about a block from the Dom. Despite the location, the room was very quiet. We were easily able to walk everywhere we wanted. A few blcoks to old town & the river and the museums were close...some of the most important were just across the street! Access to the train station (next to the Dom) made it easy when we had to leave.
We stayed here for two nights April. It's a great location - behind the Dom so you're right there, but not so close that you'll be disturbed by the bells. It's a little on the corporate side, and the room we had was a tiny bit narrow, but the bathrooms are luxurious, and the towels and products were particularly sumptuous. The beds and bed linen are pretty special too - goose down and starchy cotton. Very comfortable beds and nice designer touches in the room.
The concierges and staff were adept, helpful and unobtrusive. The breakfast (which we had brought up to us) was fantastic. We ate in the restaurant both nights. It was practically empty, which was strange because the food was great and excellent value. Glasses of prosecco were, as I recall, only a fiver. The kitchen sent out little treats to us too. So we were left with the feeling when we checked out that we'd been very well looked after indeed.
Great hotel located 2 minutes from the Dom. only the dom hotel better located
Enjoyed a three night break over new year hotel room was fine everything you would expect from an International hotel.
Breakfast was Excellent had dinner in the tapas bar and tapas was good and well priced.
The hotel was very quite and we felt like we were the only ones there. Booked via accor web site and got a last minute rate about 80Euro per night.
Despite misgivings on arrival (huge building site in front of the entrance, as most of Cologne's roads seems to be under re-construction), this was a classy and comfortable hotel. Booked a Superior twin, and was given a nice slot looking out on the floodlit Dom. Rooms are not huge at all, but the beds are extremely comfortable. Bathrooms are well equipped and with a large walk -in shower. Public areas are beautifully furnished, quiet and relaxing. Even has a Library for clients to chill in!. Ate in the Tapas bar, more of a restaurant offshoot really, and cannot fault the service or food. Staff generally were great, friendly and efficient. Highly recommended at a book ahead price of just Euro 120.
Cold shower, cold shoulder
A luxury 5 star Hotel in a great location about 5- 10 minutes walk from the Railway Station and Dom. We found a great 'last minute' Internet rate (we booked a month before) on the Accor Hotels web site of 82 Euros for a triple room.
We stayed there on 9th October and unfortunately had 2 problems that contributed to a disappointing stay. We arrived at 2.20pm (check in time is 2pm) and were told our room would not be ready for 1/2 hour, 1 and 1/2 hours later we finally got to our room! Great when you have a tired 6 year old to amuse!
The next problem was when we went to have a shower the next morning and discovered no hot water, a call to reception confirmed that it was not just our room but the whole Hotel. We had bad luck, but I would still highly recommend the hotel and stay there again-better luck next time!
Modern Luxury: a true Sofitel
The Sofitel must have been completely refurbished in 2003 - it is a truly beautiful place. The Lobby is large and cozy at the same time, and exudes an air of quiet luxury. Staff is well-trained and helpful, with a smile.The Design is terrific: Contemporary and warm at the same time. The rooms are great, modern, stylish and well-appointed.
Roadwarriors may wish for more deskspace. The beds are high, offer great linens and a firm, yet comfy mattress. The bathrooms are beautiful, clean and bright - great water-pressure for a nice shower and the tub is large enough to have a relaxing soak in it. If you want to relax even more, check out the Wellness-Area in the basement: hot sauna, steam room, a quiet area with bed-like deck-chairs... It is very nicely done and we were all by ourselves the entire time. As often in Germany, there is no separation between the sexes.The gym is equipped with the basics, but everything is new and you can at least give yourself a halfway decent cardio workout.Restaurant is hotel-style and international, service is un-rushed.I stayed there shortly after the renovations, and not everything had 'clicked' yet - however, if you get one of their special weekend rates, this place is highly recommended, especially if you have the time to use everything the hotel offers. The location is very much in the center of everything - so just walk out of the hotel and start discovering Cologne.
