Good Hotel, Fantastic Breakfast, Strict Rules.
This hotel was excellent value for money. Stayed there Nov 2006, payed about 60 between 2 people for two nights. Breakfast was fantastic, dont think I've ever had a better one. Lots of choice, hot and cold and you can east until you see fit. And I can assure you I did. Staff were polite but they were strict if any problems came up. Unfortunately we had a little accident in our room with a can of lager and a bed had to be changed. We were charged 50 euros for this in a fairly belligerant manner. I totally understand that it was our fault etc, but 50 euros to change a set of bed linnen is a bit much. After much negotiation I payed 30 euros.
The hotel was clean, the TV in the room had english channels and I cant fault the location - 10 minutes staright walk to the Koln Dom.
Good value for money, fantastic breakfast, just dont spill any drinks!
A wonderful hotel to stay in, we'd looked on Trip Advisor AFTER booking and saw it had a few reviews and that the breakfasts were recommended - this is an understatement! The breakfasts were great, such a huge choice and lovely atmosphere to start off your day. Our room was lovely with plenty of space, the side of the building we were on was slightly noisy if you slept with the window open, but nothing one wouldn't get in any city location. The proximity of the hotel to the Dom and main city attractions was easily manageable taking about 15 minutes to walk to the Dom and passing by lots of interesting shops and restaurants. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Cologne, we went for the Christmas Markets (which were really enjoyable too) and would go back and stay at the Coellner Hof again.
Christmas markets trip
Have just returned from a 3 night stay to visit the Christmas markets. The hotel was in an excellent location and within easy reach of Hansaring station.. Very attractive public rooms and comfortable and spacious bedroom. Superb buffet breakfast served until 10.30am. Plenty of good eating places near the hotel for evening meals.
If you visit the Christmas markets you can take the little train which does a round trip starting outside the Tourist Office near the Cathedral. You can 'hop on and hop off'', it saves leg work and also is a good way of getting your bearings.
Una fantástica estancia de fin de semana
Mi habitación era muy buena, limpia y amplia, el personal era amable, el desayuno maravilloso y se encuentra en una zona fantástica. Disfrutamos muchísimo de nuestra estancia y lo recomendaría para un fin de semana.
Great weekend stay
Nice clean, spacious room, friendly staff, wonderful breakfast and in a nice area, thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it for a weekend break.
Stayed in this hotel for the Cologne Christmas Markets and wasn't disappointed. The rooms in the hotel were very clean and comfortable and the service was very good.
The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the cathedral, but is in the middle of a lot of shops, so it is easy to find somewhere to eat at night. We ate in the hotel for the first night and the food was excellent.
Breakfast was advertised as continental, but the choice was huge and included scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage.
Can thoroughly recommend this hotel - will definitely be going back next year!
Lovely, friendly hotel
We had checked tripadvisor reviews before booking this hotel so we did have high expectations before we arrived. We can only describe the hotel as a lovely, friendly traditional german hotel. Fantastic wooden decor, large spacious rooms and incredibly helpful staff (reception, restaurant and cleaning staff). The food was excellent (breakfast & evening meal). We actually arrived a few hours earlier than the check in time so expected that we would probably have to leave our luggage and then go wandering like lost souls until everything was ready but they got the room ready for us in about 20 minutes - brilliant.
The people in the next room were a little noisy on our second night but after a quick call to reception to complain, the matter was resolved within minutes - which in my experience is really brilliant because generally staff seem loathed to deal with anything of this nature.
The hotel is easily accessibly by train - you simply get the S13 Koln- Hansaring train from the airport and get off at Hansaring (which is the stop after the main station) and when you come out onto the main street you turn left and head along Hansaring for about 250 metres - the Coellner Hof is on the opposite side of the street. The cost of the fare is about 2.5 euros. We returned to the airport by taxi which cost about 27 euros.
The hotel is probably about 10 minutes from the cathedral and main shopping area.
I travel to Cologne twice a year and always stay here. Excellent value and geat location . I found it because of recomendations from friends in Cologne.
Great hotel. Location is excellent only a 15 minute walk to the cathedral and right next to a subway station. Rooms clean, breakfast excellent and a friendly bar. Will definitely go back, a real gem that is well priced.
Stayed two nights in the Coellnerhof in a large, quiet room with a nice view. They had the largest continental breakfast I have ever had in a European hotel. Huge choice including scrambled eggs, fried sausage and bacon. Hotel is only 10 minutes walk from the DOM and main train station. Will definitely stay in this hotel on my next visit.

... along the boardwalk and scouted two potential dining spots. I will not bore you with more food pics; suffice it to say the meal was good - not exceptional. The setting was great along the Rhine in an old family run Gasthof Adler.
Tomorrow will be an easy drive back to Dan and Andrea's place - something under three hours.
Hope everyone is having a good Remembrance Day remembering what it was all about those many years ago!!
... the world.
There was entertainment in the bar. A violinist and a pianist and a MC...not sure why they needed a MC, maybe no English?? They were very good, I wish Sue Ball was here to tell us - because I know they were not symphony caliber but very good musicians, and this job gives them a chance to do what they love. Make a living? Not sure about that...although there are many, many tourists.
... will never be finished because of the magnitude of the maintenance task - in fact two sides had scaffolding up to support the ongoing maintenance program. It's front facade covers 750 sq metres and has 10,000 sq metres of lead light windows. It suffered 14 direct bomb hits during the war but was rebuilt. We declined the invitation the climb the 560 steps for what is reported as breathtaking views from the southern spire. I expect the climb up is more breathtaking than the ...
... is an 18th century "summer house" of an Archbishop and nobleman of Cologne: Clemens August. Unfortunately we were not permitted to take photos of the VERY opulent inside decor. Since we could not take photos inside, I attached a photo from the Internet. The gardens outside were basede on French gardens and included a reflecting pool. This Clemens August guy really thought highly of himself and the impression he wanted to make on his visitors! Finally arrived back from ...
... mean really, how hard can it be to run offstage after an aerial striptease, lose my few remaining garments mid-trajectory to pre-set and sing while having someone else re-attach my mike, get changed for the next song and be ready to bounce a 50s swing number through the wings with a heavy, black table? Two minutes and twenty seconds...maybe I could even pre-set a snack.
The naivety would soon wear off. For now, I'll just keep optimistically shoveling pastry.
