Historical Traveler Reviews Sosogiso Wajima
Great value for money! One of the best hotels!
My girlfriend and I stayed here for the New Year weekend. Everything that has been said previously here is absolutely true. It is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The staff are very friendly and helpful. If you are struggling to find a top class restaurant, just ask the concierge and he will only be too willing to assist you. Harry's Bar is a great place to unwind (try the Flying Kangaroo cocktail, we have only previously seen it available in the Meridien in Budapest), not your normal hotel bar, very cool ambience and popular with the locals.
Health centre is top class and it is free even though the brochure in the room suggests there is a charge. Beds are so comfortable you will not be able to get up in the morning.
Location perfect, only 5-10 minutes walk to the Dom and right beside the main shopping area.
Excellent service wonderful location.
My boyfriend and i stayed here for a long weekend for his birthday. The staff were absolutely wonderful. The location is excellent. My only complaint is that the club ciontinental lounge did not serve hot food for breakfast-disapointed as i had paid extra for this. That one negative was more than made up for by the wonderful atmosphere elsewhere in the hotel.
we made good use of the hotel facilities; We had a night of romantic cocktails in harrys bar with live paino music- get there early by eleven at night it's packed! we had a wine tasting in the secluded wine room and had an excellent meal in the restaraunt- they even adapted several of their dishes to make it veggie friendly. for dessert they brought out a chocolate cake that they had made for his birthday (a surprise even to me) and then as we sat in the overstock lounge they brought us a glass of champagne each just before midnight so we could toast his birthday together! On check out they gave us a bottle of wine to take away. hard to beat.
a brilliant hotel.
The best hotel I've been to, period.
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Intercontinental in Cologne in October for a weekend. I swear this place is the best place I've ever stayed at. Not the largest of rooms, but they were stylish, modern, warm, and comfortable. What made it an awesome hotel was the service. The service is really top notch. We stayed at a Renaissance for the next week in another town and although also nice, it just lacked the quality of service of the Intercontinental.
Here are some of the things to expect at the Intercontinental in Cologne: One, your room is serviced at least twice a day (once to make the bed, once to draw the bed, and sometimes once for a quick mini-bar refill checkup). Two, the staff is all friendly, every single one of them (from the cleaning crew to the manager), and most of them speak English quite well. Three, the complimentary breakfasts are to die for. Holy crap! You have your choice of fresh meats and cheeses, smoked salmon, 5-minute and 7-minute eggs, two styles of sausages, breads, fruits, juices, everything.
I recommend this place and will try to stay at Intercontinentals wherever we go from now on.
What a wonderful hotel!
On 16th October I went to Cologne together with 2 girlfriends and stayed at the InterContinental. We arrived early and as we had requested connecting rooms they were not ready so after a spot of lunch down by the river we returned to the hotel, the manager apologised for the rooms till not being ready and offered us complinentary drinks in Harry's Bar while we waited. After a too short wait our rooms were ready and we were shown to our rooms. They were worth the wait, very spacious, modern with every thing you could possibly need, extremly clean, great shower, very comfy beds. All the staff in the hotel were very helpful, the manager made a point of greeting us and offered suggestions of where to visit. Harrys Bar is great fun with live music at the weekends, very busy with locals and tourists (Champagne cocktails are a must). The health center was very good the only moan is that the pool is very cold! I would definately stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.
Fabulous Harry's Bar
Fantastic Hotel!!! We stayed 24--26 September and although the room was smaller than most Inercontental they are well finished.I enjoyed a wonderful massage in the health club were you and use the gym and swim asscess via hotel.HARRY'S BAR is not to be missed after a wonderful dinner followed by a Rudersheim Coffee in the Altstadt we returned to the hotel at 12.30 and decided on a nightcap went to the bar and ended up staying till 2.15am wonderful musis and great cocktails.The breakfast is fantastic, staff are helpful,friendly.The location is excellent and would reccomend this hotel to anyone.
Top class amenities and service
The modern decor and high-quality furnishings and fittings made this one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The bed was amazingly comfortable. Another bonus was the wonderful level of service provided by all of the staff. Guests also had access to the large, well-equipped state-of-the-art health and fitness center in the adjoining building. For an additional 15 Euros per day we joined the Club Lounge which gave us access to free breakfast, all day snacks and drinks and upmarket business centre facilities including unlimited free use of computers and the internet - an astonishing deal. We unreservedly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a memorable stay in Cologne.
Lovely modern hotel with great customer service!
This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The hotel is beautifully decorated. The rooms are modern and very comfortable. The restaurant has great food and a very nice wine area. After your meal you are also invited to a cozy couch area in the back of the restaurant where you can enjoy your coffee and dessert.
I must say what really stands out about this hotel is the customer service. We booked a standard room but we were upgraded to a deluxe room on the club floor upon checkin (we do have status with the chain) and we had a lovely host at the club floor that answered all sorts of questions for us about where to eat, how to get to Nurburgring and where to get the best beers! And the concierge scored us tickets to the F1 race at the Nurburgring which is just amazing. This is a lovely lovely hotel and I will recommend it everyone!
What an excellent modern interior design!
This is the most beautiful hotel with such a modern interior design I have ever visited! How I wish all Intercontinental Hotels were like this one in Cologne. One might find the hotel facade dull but wait till you get inside and lo! such a splendid design, indeed! I only stayed in a standard room for one night but even, it is what you can call a dream room styled with beautiful and elegant simplicity. I could just imagine how the other expensive rooms would look like. And, of course, the hotel staff is very relax and accomodating and that is very important.
I will definitely go back and stay there.
Wonderfully relaxed lobby, helpful staff, great buffet breakfast.
I had a deluxe room, which although lacking a view, was very comfortably furnished. Bathrrom had large walk in shower and deep, large bath. Room service food was also excellent. The hotel is well situated for the city.
I only stayed here for one night, but will certainly return again on my next visit.
Stunning style and great service
I stayed at this new (April 2003?) hotel for nine days, and it has to be one of the best hotels I've visited. It's in a brand new building with an excellent location - just steps from the main (pedestrianised) shopping thoroughfares of Cologne. There's a beautiful health club in the building (for which you have to pay extra, sadly). And the bar downstairs is stylish and sophisticated. Even the breakfast was memorable (orange juice in cylindrical glass vases!). I was upgraded to a superior room for free. The only drawback was the lighting in the room; you can only turn off all the lights from the door, and you've got to find your way to the bed in the dark!

We awoke this morning in Cologne, and immediately after breakfast started off on a walking tour with a local guide. Along the river and up into the town. We visited the cathedral (of course), and saw some excavations on Roman ruins which was very interesting. 93% of Cologne was destroyed during the WW11 so it is quite a modern city, although a lot of the building was a reproduction of what was there before. It's hard ...
