Novotel Köln City, Cologne, Germany
Novotel never disappoints!
We absolutely love Novotel hotels and enjoyed our stay at this location. The room was clean and we greatly appreciated the sofa bed already fully made when we arrived! We enjoyed the variety of choices at breakfast, especially the chia pudding for me! My boys enjoyed the hot breakfast options like bacon, egg, and sausage!

Great hotel, staff and breakfast!
We stopped in Cologne for one night on our tour of Northern Europe. Delighted to stay here. Novotel have created something great - a lovely hotel in a good central location with good sized rooms which are in great decorative order. The staff are great too and they provided a fantastic breakfast that set the whole family up for the day. All this and for a great price. You would think that they are paying me for this review but honestly I cannot fault this place.

A little dated.
The hotel was a little dated but we found the location very good for exploring. The public transport is very good in the city but mainly walked everywhere. A brisk stroll will have you in the old town in 15 mins.
