Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Hotel Severinshof Koeln City Cologne
I stayed in this hotel from the 1st dec - 3rd dec. The hotel is very nice and the staff at the hotel speak very good English and are very polite and willing to help as much as they can. The food at the hotel is excellent and good value for money we ate there one night and it was nice. The rooms are cleaned daily and clean towels provided if needed, the room we stayed in had a bath, shower, hair dryer, soap dispensers, shampoo, conditioner. The rooms are fully central heated. The beds are very comfortable and the pillows are of a very good standard.
The tv isn't excellent the only English channel available is CNN however we did watch a german tv show which was like X Factor so it wasnt too bad :)
The hotel is at least 15 minutes walking to the main city and i would recommend catching the metro line 3/4 it takes 2 minutes to Neumarkt just go down the first set of stairs once exiting the hotel. For further info see hotel reception or email me.
I hope you enjoy this Hotel as much as i did it made my stay in Cologne that extra bit special and i recommend you stay here if your willing to walk or catch a metro to the main shops. Hope this helps
There is nothing i could fault this hotel on we paid
Don't get a Taxi to the hotel unless you want to be ripped off...We got the train from the train station the train you want to get is from the airport which is the:
S13 train to bf deutz kolnarena
once you get to bf deutz kolarena follow the signs to the U 3 or 4 which is the underground line 3 or 4 any of the metro trains to Bocklemund the stop which you want to get off at is Severinstr which is 2 stops after kolarena. The train didnt cost us anything we jumped on the train and no one asked us to buy a ticket. The train takes aprox 30 minutes in total and the train station is next to the hotel.
(-) visit this link to request your city guide and a map of the underground.
Nice and quiet hotel
We stayed here for 4 nights. Got a good price of $98 a night. This hotel is very clean. Good sized rooms with a closet and a small fridge. The windows open in all rooms. It has a parking garage. Great bar and resturant. Very helpful and english speaking staff. A very nice place to stay!
It is a mile or so to the Cathedral. Many shops and resturants are along the way.
Very comfortable hotel
The Mercure Severinshof is a very good hotel for a short stay or weekend in the city. The hotel is just a ten-fifteen minute walk to the Kölner Dom. And the walk is through pleasant shopping streets.
We were well received by the staff and were able to use the parking garage for our car. The rooms was fresh and clean and quite roomy. We did not have tyo ask for extra pillows - they were already there.
The breakfast is really great with loads of choices from German breads to egg and bacon. You get many hearty choices here. There are small signs by the cheeses to show the percentage of fat in them for those who wish to eat healthily.
Overall I liked this hotel a lot and would most surely stay here again. We only stayed one night this time but would like to come to Koln again.
We only stayed for one night at the Mercure, but I would definitely go back again. It's an excellent value, and the rooms are spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They spoke excellent English and were very helpful in finding our way around. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the Old town, and the street to get there is lined with shops and eateries.
If you arrive by train, and have never been to Cologne, it's advisable to take a taxi (about 7 Euros) or the bus (the 132 takes you from the train station directly to the hotel and costs about 2.10 Euros). Once you find your way there, you won't have any problems finding your way around.
The buffet breakfast was great, there were all sorts of meats and cheese, as well as omelets, cereal and tonnes of breads. Something for everyone.
Will definitely stay here again!
Just got back from a 3 night stay in the Severinshof in Cologne and we were very impressed. The hotel was so clean and the staff were friendly. We don't speak the language, but luckily all the staff seemed to speak enough english to help with whatever you need. The hotel is well within walking distance of the city centre (about 15 mins), but there are loads of taxis on the corner if you don't fancy the walk. The rooms are a good size and are very clean and modern. The bar and resaurant are lovely and there's a seating area outside too.
I would most definitely go back to this hotel again and would recommend to all!!

Loved the Severinshof
We've just returned from a weekend at the Severinshof (15.8. - 18.8.2003) and have to say that we were impressed with the quality of our accommodation.Having booked over the net for 50 Euro per room we didn't expect more than a small to medium-sized double room with standard hotel room interior. What a surprise when we discovered, we were accommodated on the Club-Floors (4th and 5th floors) with large and superbly equipped studios! We'd met friends in Cologne who had similar rooms, each of which were different but equally nice. Each studio had a spacious seated area, which was ideal for gatherings in the evening, a balcony with chairs and table, a kitchenette with tea and coffee portions, air conditioning, a mini-bar, magazines, a newspaper and the other things that you'd expect from a four-star hotel (toiletries, desk, TV etc.)The Severinshof has a courtyard in which you can dine al fresco or just have your Kölsch (beer from cologne). The restaurant prices were again a pleasant surprise with Schnitzel, French fries and salad from the salad bar starting at about 5 Pound (7.50 Euro). Various pasta dishes from 5 Euro. The buffet breakfast (which we did not try) is comparatively dear with 13 Euro per person.A slight disadvantage was the room cleaning service, which did not seem entirely efficient in the hotel, so we had to wait for the check-in until 3.00.
We also don't know what the standard double rooms look like. As people left their windows open at night, we suspect that they don't have air-conditioning.Altogether, the hotel is nicely furnished, despite the somewhat plain exterior. In particular the lounge, the restaurant and the bar reflect the hotel's four-star status. The courtyard with its beer-garden atmosphere is a nice alternative to the somewhat formal restaurant. The pedestrian zone of Cologne can be reached on foot within 10 minutes. A multi-storey car park is adjacent to the hotel and costs 10 Euro for 24 hours. From our view, the hotel experience deserves the highest score (5/5), although, as mentioned before, we can't judge on the standard double rooms.

Today we are docked at Remagen and meet our tour guides to see the Bridge at Remagen Museum, which is a memorial to peace. As you walk toward the museum, first you see across the Rhine River what is left of the bridge on the other side of the river. And you also see the remnants of the opposite side of the railway bridge built in 1916 to 1918 to supply troops during WWI. It was used briefly after it was finished but was left unused until WWII in 1944 to 1945.Remagen ...
... but it is an incredible car. Now, I'm in a little mini-van with a random bunch of Frenchies, Spaniards and Germans (BlaBlaCar strikes again) on the 5 hour drive to Paris. I could really do with spending some more time in Germany and can't wait to come back after I've headed back to the UK. Such an amazing few days. I am feeling so happy.
I could also do with not having 3 hours left of this journey. I might be sick on the French guy next to me. Sorry ...
... and an entire block of restaurants and bars. There was a huge park and people flying giant kites along the Rhine. And that was about it. Because everything else was closed. Today we learned that All Saints Day is a national holiday here and not the best day to explore a city. The more you know. Tomorrow we start our road trip! We are picking up the car at the airport and then off to Amsterdam! I'm excited to have a bit more freedom in when we go ...
So the bus ride was super long and mostly uncomfortable. But we made it to Düsseldorf! We arrived around 7am, and walked to our hostel to leave our bags. We weren't allowed to check in until 1pm, so we had to kill some time. We found a bakery and had some tea and pastry, wandered around, played in a park a little, and then had real breakfast at a place recommended to us by the front desk guy at the hostel. Ordering ...
... not do it justice. It's incredible. We decided not to do a tour. For me seeing it is enough. So our next stop will be the House of 4711 which is the original Eau de Cologne! I'm very excited about that. The museum part is closed today so sniffing the perfume whose production method and scent haven't changed in 220 years will have to be enough! For now, sitting on the steps of the cathedral while John climbs the 550 steps to the top of one of the towers! I ...
