Alaaf!!

A travel blog entry by caylameinert

So I'm officially at the 2 months mark here in Europe, meaning I am just about at the half way point.. CRAZY.. It blows my mind how fast the time over here is going.. I keep thinking I will be able to catch up on my blogging (I have even wrote it down in my planner to complete on multiple days), but yet every day I find a reason to put it off. There's just not enough time in the day! If I could put off sleeping, I definitely would.. I mean I already compromise enough on my ...

Rosenmontag at the Kölner Karneval!

A travel blog entry by beckygooch

Today was Rosenmontag - this is the day before Shrove Tuesday and a celebration of the end of the period before Lent for German Christians. The festival also stems from Roman times when it was customary that the servants and slaves played the role of masters for one day each year, and this is reflected in the mockery of local, national and international leaders and public figures during Karneval. The German name for Carnival Monday is Rosenmontag, which comes from the German ...

Up to the top of the tower

... meat about the size of a rugby ball, we struggled round the main art gallery which has a fine collection of Picasso's and Wahol paintings but I am afraid we lowered the tone by doing a Harry Worth with one of the exhibits. If you don't know who Harry Worth is ask you dad (or look at http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nIPihrhzr- U) I will add the picture of this exploit tomorrow. Tonight we are on the sleeper to ...

... Hence this picture came about!


After leaving the cathedral, my host family told me about this great tour that you can take up to the high tower of the cathedral. From there, you can look out over the city of Cologne, a bird's eye view all around. Naturally, I agreed to this idea since it seemed like it would present great memories and picture opportunities. While it did create those, it also created sore legs, ...

... stories to tell.we left Koblenz at 6am - and docked at Rudesheim at 1 pm. An amazing morning. It was freezing first thing but warmed up beautifully. I took over 100 photos of castles - but won't bore you with all of them. After we docked we went on a gondola ride of the hectares of vineyards - this is a famous wwinemaking area - Riesling mainly this gave us a great overview of the extent of the valley ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Lindner Hotel City Plaza Cologne

    Very nice stay

    from

    I stayed at the Renaissance during World Youth Day last summer. Everything was really nice. The food was good. The rooms were clean and spacious. The pool area was very well kept. The staff was always ready to help even with the large size of our group. We walked everywhere in Cologne without a problem. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Cologne.

    Good hotel, near the city

    from

    We stayed there first week of January 2006 for 2 nights (leisure break). Room was okay, mini bar and tv there. We didn't like the pillows (too thin). Breakfast was wonderful (with omelette and whaffles). Surrounding may be a little noisy in summer (bars, restaurants there). We didn't try the pool or fitness equipment. You can walk to the cathedral within 10-15 min. Parking in hotel garage is 19 Euro/24 hrs, opposite the hotel you can park in another garage for 12 euro/24 hrs.

    If you like sauna and mineral bath go to Claudius Therme in Cologne, wonderful !

    Price was 99 Euro/ 2 pers/night incl. breakfast.

    In total: I recommend the hotel for leisure break and business.

    Many errors

    from

    We wanted to stay new years eve in Cologne and unfortunatly the intercontinental was fully booked, so we booked at the renaissance by internet at Marriott. At arrival it seemed that the internetbooking wan't arrived at the hotel, although i had a confirmation by email. after some hassle we got our 2 rooms at club lounge level for 185 euro. Problems start with the rooms. Both the rooms the heating did not work. I had to make 3 phone calls to the frontdesk to get an mechanic and every time they told me he would come but just didn't show up. At the end this bell boy with painted hair showed up with an terrible attitude and asked if the windows were closed properly and said he could not do anything with the problem but could give us a electric heater. My friend has to get angry first and pointed that it was his problem indeed and that we would not settle for this price with an electric heater in both the rooms. And surprise surprise, after 2 hours an mechanic showed up and fixed only one of the rooms! because we did not wanted to spoil the whole evening i settle for the electric heater in the end. when we turned the next morning to breakfast this girl at the buffet said that it was not inclusive of the price and wanted us to fill in a form that we took the breakfast as an extra. Again in protest because we had booked inclusive. She then made an phonecall to the frontdesk and after that she said that because of the problems with the rooms we would get the breakfast complimentary, but only in this case! She said we could have had the breakfast in the clubroom inclusive but we were to late and that ended at 11 o'clock. strange, we went first to the clubroom but that was spotless clean and no sign of breakfast what so ever! Anyway, when we came at the breakfastlounge, we could still see the signs of the party that was going on there the night before and only big round tables for at least 8 persons to sit at. Overcrowded and no room to sit as with 6 other strangers. if i wanted to meet with people i would have booked Club Med...With some good luck we found to spots to sit in between the dirty glasswear en plates of guests before us. It seemed that this was not the normal breakfastroom because the usuall was taken in for some formal new years brunch party thing. We quickly ckecked out after that, afraid we would go over the 12 o'clock check out time and charge us for that as well. Maby it was not an good idea to go this time of year in a hotel, i don't know but we certainly are not going back to the renaissance! What a dissapointing experience.

    Wonderful Hotel

    from

    I stayed here with my Girlfiend for 1 night on an unbelievebale "Romance Package" deal that they are running on their website. For €199, the deal includes: Junior Suite, Champagne, Chocs and fruit, included pay movie, access to snacks and drinks lounge, dinner including wine, late checkout.

    Arrived and treated like royalty. Staff couldnt do enough. Bed was covered in petals and hearts, unbelievable.

    Only possible criticism was that nightclubs next door very noisy and even though on floor 4 room was quite noisy until around 0400. Ask for rooms away from back of hotel and this would be fine.

    Overall unbelievable deal. Still cant believe it. Was quoted more on discount web site for Hilton standard room only!

    Terrific Beds - Great Location

    from

    We stayed at this hotel because of a TripAdvisor review which called this the "Best Renaissance anywhere". That sounded pretty good to us. We found the convincingly comfortable modern bed and the copious numbers of pillows provided to justify an absolutely top rating - after all, sleeping is important in a hotel. In addition, the location of this hotel near the social hub of the Friesenplatz in Cologne in the summer can hardly be topped. This was a business trip, so we will have to return to try out the rest of the facilities.

    Near the famed cathedral!

    from

    My husband and I stayed here on a Globus tour in Aug., 2005, and thought the hotel was wonderful! Lovely, large room with good location for a walk at night. Food was good, staff pleasant. A credit to the Marriott Corp.!

    Best Renaissance anywhere

    from

    I travel about 150 nights a year and stay exclusively at Marriott brand properties, and have stayed at 15-20 Renaissance properties in the last two years.

    GREAT value, amenities & service!

    from

    Great hotel only about a 10-15 minute walk from the cathedral along a nice shopping street. The whole staff was very friendly and spoke excellent English. We got a good deal in the off season - less than 100 euros per night for a very nice standard double room - not huge, but very quiet, with nice decor & quality bedding - including breakfast (though when there are conferences in town, I hear the price goes up). There was a bottle of wine waiting in the room (for an extra 7.50 Euros), and we called to have bathrobes & slippers delivered - great for after the pool. The parking under the hotel was safe - 18 Euros for 24 hours. We had breakfast delivered to our room in the morning for no extra charge. We would definitely stay here again!

    Beautiful property!

    from

    What a great hotel! Well located just a short walk from the train station, shopping, restaurants and bars/clubs. The multilingual staff warmly greeted us when we arrived, gave great and helpful information, and were friendly throughout our 3 night stay. Room was very modern and very comfortable. The hotel restaurant was also very good although a tad overpriced at breakfast. Not surprising for such a nice business-class hotel, I guess.

    I would definitely stay again!
