The hotel is always first choice when staying in Cologne for exhibitions. It is literally 100 meters from the Köln Messe entrance. The rooms are spacey and nicely design, silent and comfortable. I would prefer separate showers but bathrooms are also ok. Nice bar in the lobby area. A problem is the very crowded breakfast with one (!) coffee machine.... More

A friend and I stayed here while attending Photokina, at Koelnmesse. It's "absurdly" convenient, just 5 minutes walk from the West Koelnmesse entrance. I saw some comments here in TripAdvisor saying the rooms were tired. Either they've been renovated recently or I'm easy :-) The room and bathroom were quite modern and the beds average. Internet access in the room... More

Ideally situated across from the East entrance of Koeln Messe for those visiting Cologne for a trade fair. Modern and minimal interior with friendly staff. Very good breakfast and room service. A few minutes walk to the center but also next to a train station for Lind distance travel.
