10/10 Exceptional

Best Hotel in Cologne
I was recommended this hotel to stay at by my work colleagues who live in Cologne. Although it is 15 mins walk away from the city centre and the cathedral, the hotel is certainly worth staying at and the rooms are excellent and you receive a free mini bar. The reception staff are very welcoming and accommodating, always there to help with your needs. They provided me with an iron when I asked for one, and I was also able to leave my luggage behind reception on the day I checked out and attend my lunchtime meeting, before coming back to the hotel to get changed and continue to leave my luggage behind the reception before collecting it later on in the evening before my nighttime flight home. The monkey bar is excellent and there are plenty of seats outside along the balcony, as well as inside. The views from the monkey bar are excellent and you can see across the whole city of Cologne. The breakfast in the main restaurant was great and offered a variety of options. I even had rice pudding for my breakfast every morning. I haven’t had rice pudding since I was a child and I am now in my 40s so this was nice for me. You could also have breakfast outside along the balcony too. I bumped into somebody at the airport coming home and they said they didn’t stay in that hotel but he did go there one night for a evening meal and the food was out of this world. I think the next time I stay in Cologne I will have an evening meal in the main restaurant. Overall an great stay and good value!

2/10 Poor

Unfortunately disappointing for business
Stayed at 25 Hours this past week. Not cheap so expected good service. No cleaning was done in two days. No fridge refilled in two days despite having a free fridge option in my booking. Holes in bedsheets. This is a 4.5 hotel rating. Not sure why!

8/10 Very good

A really great hotel in a fantastic location. Get to breakfast early, before it becomes packed, and call ahead to Monkey Bar to check it's open - there was a private function going on while we were there.

The best hotel in Cologne
This hotel is so, so cool, and incredibly well priced. The hotel is very modern, with lots of amenities. The room was huge for a European room, clean and well thought out. Free use of the minibar was an added bonus too! Also the service we received was great. Would definitely stay here again if I returned to Cologne!

4/10 Fair

Not An Enjoyable Stay
The hotel has been custom-designed with a science fiction feel. The room itself was designed to fit in with this theme but I found it stark and uncomfortable, bare concrete ceilings with filler and exposed services don't work for me. The shower leaked water everywhere as a seal at the bottom of the door was missing which resulted in a flood across the tiled floor. The towels had to be used to soak up the water but sadly there was no radiator or towel rail to dry them out afterwards. The free mini-bar consisted of two bottles of beer, a chocolate bar and water which is not what I regard as mini-bar. The duvet cover on one of the beds had a brown stain on it which on examination was..... well you work it out. The breakfast was very over-priced but the food was OK. Overall I was glad to leave the hotel after two nights and will not be returning.

Quirky and fun place to stay. There could have been tea/coffee facilities in the room and the coffee bar area could have been open more
