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.
The Flandrischer Hof Hotel, a brightly polished diamond
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.
Many thanks for a lovely few days; your hotel is a credit to you.
City break in Cologne
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.
Flandrischer Hof - Well worth a visit!!
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.
Although the entrance is in a back street, the hotel faces onto a main street. The purpose of our visit to Cologne at this time of the year was to visit the Christmas Markets, for which Cologne is famous. We were not disappointed - 5 minutes walk took us to one of those markets, the rest being within walking distance from the hotel, but less than 6 euros paid for the taxi into the city centre and we walked back through the several markets to the hotel.
The breakfast supplied by the hotel was excellent. Again, everything was spotless, the food of good quality, varietyand plenty of it, and the staff courteous and helpful.
Would I recommend Flandrischer Hof Hotel? Most definitely! Marks out of 10? 10.5!

... never to go on that kind of tour, no matter how decrepit we become. We have enough independence in us to resist such a tour. It sounded ghastly. Also bought some more Loratadine hay fever tablets. We've discovered they sell 100 hay fever tabs here for $15 Aus. I pay four times that in Melbourne, so who is making all the profit? We met some people at the hotel also headed for the Richard Rohr cruise. They were catching a taxi, but we decided to train it, which we ...
... trying to keep the hatred alive. Also chatted to the guy behind the bar at hotel Wyndham. He is a Bulgarian engineer who is working in hospitality to improve his English language skills, so he can get a job in IT here in Germany. Says his English isn't as good as it should be but also volunteered the fact that he speaks seven languages in all. Cologne has a lovely feel to it. More friendly than Berlin. Berlin felt more like Sydney to me and Cologne feels more like ...
... in we head over the bridge covered in padlocks to visit the cathedral. It must have been one of the few buildings to remain after Cologne was heavily bombed.
Lovely city..so we hopped on the inevitable tourist bus which zipped us round the sights...
Dinner at another beer hall...very different from the others. Beer is served in a 0.2l ...
Another early morning for breakfast to be off the ship at 8am in Düsseldorf. N to buses to either spend the morning in Düsseldorf or go on to Cologne, where the ship will sail to and meet us at lunch. We chose Cologne and did a 90 minute walking tour of the city. First, and most spectacular stop was the Cologne Cathedral. Built several centuries ago, it is an immense building. It was damaged during the war, but relatively unscathed. It is ...
... did I take from March 2 through December 22 (a total of 296 days)? [NOTE: I not only take photographs of things I find interesting, but also of informational details in museums, churches and other locations so that I don’t have to always spend time reading all of the information while I am there.
