Travel Blogs from Cologne
Cologne is Germany's fourth-largest, and is one of the major European metropolitan areas with more than ten million inhabitants. It is a major cultural centre and has a vibrant arts scene and is home to more than 30 museums and hundreds of galleries. (Not one visited as Rob has no culture or interest).
As we had discovered by searching …
We have escaped from London to experience the magic of the German Christmas markets. Landing late in Dusseldorf, we confusedly manage to take the train to Cologne, then a taxi to our hotel, in the process getting our first glimpse of a Christmas market – which indeed looks very magical and Chrismassy. Excited, we rush back out our hotel, but …
... beers we tried over the last two weeks. Anyway, Tot Ziens to Amsterdam and the Netherlands. I hope we see each other again soon. The coach then took us into Germany and we have stopped for the night in Cologne. Our hotel room is very nice on the 5th floor and there is a beautiful lake behind us set amongst the woods with lots of people enjoying the water, scenery and sensational weather, it's 30 degrees, very warm indeed. We seem to have a good mix of people on this tour, ...

I have no clue sir, I only know that I start in Bregenz and end in Bolzano. OK, he was aware and give me various advices a.o. take Toscane. You have all the equipment needed. Shortly after that they took the other direction, not without wishing me the best of luck and a great time in Italy.
... 1800s. They had some amazing scents beautiful shop to visit! Collected our washing and then headed out for a beer and dinner.

Historical Traveler Reviews Flandrischer Hof Cologne
We also booked based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. Great location in the Belgian Quarter, close to the city sights and plenty of local bars and restaurants. Room was great...modern, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was fine...the staff at this hotel were really friendly and very helpful. Look forward to returning.
Fabulous! A real gem of a hotel.
Stayed at this hotel based on the feedback given by other travellers on this website. We were delighted with the hotel which is a short distance by from the city centre - a pleasant stroll back from the shops! Excellent room, good variety at breakfast and very helpful staff. Highly recommended and will stay there again.
Great piano bar
we stayed at hotel in october 2004 for 3 nights, was clean and well presented. brekfast was included in the price which consisted of usual continental style and hot bacon and eggs, buffet style allowed you to set yourself up for the day! hotel within walking distance of dom and plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. highlight was hotel piano bar which had live music every night and was great fun! comfy shoes are needed if you plan to walk around cologne but transport is easy to figure out as we manged to get ourelves to the zoo and had a great day out! would recommend the piano bar even if your not staying in the hotel!
One night stay
A last minute search on the net led me to this very clean under rated hotel. We stayed at this hotel after struggling to find somewhere to stay in Cologne because thier where a major trade fair taking place on this weekend and all the hotels where getting snapped up fast. WHAT A CHOICE! We would have rated this hotel as a 4 star or a 4star plus. The rooms where clean, good size and modern. The recieption and staff whrer great and the breakfast was lovely and plentiful and the hotel was in a good position for the shopping and nightlife. I would definitly return with no hesitation.
Over the years my wife and I have stayed in many, many 4* and more than a few 5* hotels in the Far East, the Middle East, Europe and the USA but none were cleaner and many were less well appointed than the Flandrischer Hof Hotel. Without a shadow of a doubt the finest 3* hotel in which we have ever stayed. It's a pity that the hotel star grading system cannot better reflect the quality rather than the quantity of services provided. Add to that a courteous and helpful staff and good location and you have a brightly polished diamond, right there in Cologne. Six weeks ago, in Paris, we paid three times the price for a very forgetable hotel experience. Where were you, Flandrischer Hof, when we needed you? I wish that someone would franchise the format, across Europe.
A pleasant stay at the Hotel as part of a short city break. Very clean and the staff courteous and helpful, food very good. However it was noisy until quite late at night, a choice between open windows and a cool room, or stuffy but quieter. Only disadvantage to anyone of limited mobility would be the steps around the hotel to lifts, breakfast room etc. Not too far from the City Centre and the Dom, with local transport just around the corner. We found the Welcome Card very handy: this card is available from the Tourist Information desks (one at the airport), you pay a set fee for the length of time you require and then all transport in the Cologne/ Bonn area is free. This saved time and money and was used on buses, trams, trains and underground, plus discount on other tourist attractions.
Hone from home
we had a fabulous stay in this hotel, it totally exceeded our expectations. I am in the process of arranging another shopping trip and will definately be booking this hotel again.
We stayed at this hotel in May 2003.
Great location - near to shops and restaurants. Really close to tram stops too. The staff were friendly and really helpful. Breakfast was fantastic - buffet style withas much coffee as you can drink. I broke my foot on the last night of our stay and the staff were great - even allowing my husband to fetch me breakfast in the lobby as only stair access to breakfast room. PS - When in Koln you must try the local 'beer Kolsh' - mmmmm
I have stayed here twice. A little hike from the train station - the 5 minute taxi ride is well worth it if you are carrying luggage....but great hotel with a lot of stuff nearby. It is a little far from the "church" about 15-20 min walk...but in a nicer area. I will stay here again.
On arriving at the Flandrischer Hof Hotel in Cologne on 2/12/02 we were a little concerned about the back street the main door was in - but, on entering the hotel we were pleasantly surpristed! Everything was spotless, the reception staff were pleasant and courteous, even though there was a problem with our booking (caused by the booking office). The problem was dealt with in a professional manner and we (a group of 4) went to our rooms. They too, were very clean.
