Possibly the worst hotel I have stayed since my student days. The price was a complete rip off. The room was a terrible layout very small and an uncomfortable bed. The location for the exhibition centre is OK - this is the only plus point. The breakfast is a waste of money - do n

Thank you for staying at Hotel Alt Deutz City-Messe-Arena. We are happy to read that you enjoyed the good location of our hotel. Please consider that due to the individual shape of our traditional building, some rooms vary in size and layout. Our prices may vary during high demand periods, e.g. during events or trade fairs - but even at trade fairs we are still a little bit cheaper than our competitiors. Regarding your comment on our popular sparkling breakfast we are actually surprised. Usually most of our guests liked our breakfast buffet. As compared to local cafes we offer a quality above average, wide choice of products and a good value for money. We regret that you did not leave our hotel happy. Should you ever be back to Cologne, we would be more than happy if you give us a second chance. Kind regards, on behalf of the entire team of Hotel Alt Deutz City-Messe-Arena, S.R. Robinson -Manager-

Arrived this hotel today, staff was not service oriented. They charge my credit card before they let me see the reserved two rooms. The front desk located in a different building from the hotel so we had to go to the other building at the end of the street, searching reserved roo

"Thank you for staying at Hotel Alt Deutz City-Messe-Arena. We do apologize for the fact that you were not fully satisfied with your visit. You had booked a room with shared bathroom at a reduced rate. These rooms are especially popular with guests who want comfortable accommodation at a very good price-performance ratio. The shared bathrooms is used by 3 rooms at most. Our various room categories, including descriptions of the rooms and bathrooms, are detailed and transparent on all portals and on our website - clearly visible when booking, as well as on our booking confirmation. We offer double and twin-bedded rooms and try to accommodate our guests’ preferences accordingly. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee such type of preference due to limited availability. Also all our rooms feature different sizes and layouts, which is due to the historical building of the hotel. The facilities of our hotel correspond to the German two-star hotel standard equipment where an elevator is not part of. However, we are happy to help older and handicapped guests with their luggage or try to book a room on the lower floors. Your note on the friendliness of our team we take very seriously. Being an owner-managed privately-run hotel, the friendliness is one of our hallmarks. If you ever change your mind and plan to be back in Cologne, we would be more than pleased to consider any preference you may have concerning the choice of the room. Kind regards, on behalf of the entire team of Hotel Alt Deutz City-Messe-Arena, S.R. Robinson -Manager-"

Thank you for your stay and your feedback. We regret that you classify the city center in Cologne Deutz as a social focal point. Cologne-Deutz convinces with a lively restaurant and cafe culture and many shopping possibilities, with the excellent connection to trade fair, Lanxess Arena and city center a very good connectivity is given. You had booked a "Double Room with shared bathroom". These rooms are different from our standard double rooms, what is clearly stated on our website and the booking confirmation. Rooms with a shared bathroom are a cheaper alternative to save some money. Kind regards from Cologne, for the team of the Hotel Alt Deutz City-Messe-Arena, S.R. Robinson -Manager-

Hi I have a room booked 1-4 December. Name of burns Could I request double bed and not two singles please Could you also advise which train to get and which stop to get off for hotel from airport Thank you very much
You need to exit at the Koln Messe Deutz station. It is on the opposite side of the river from Main Bahnhof and is closer to your hotel. You can also get off at the main Bahnhof of but will have to walk across the river or take a taxi to get to hotel. As far as your bed preference, you will need to contact the hotel.

Purtroppo non sono stato li in quel periodo quindi non so come aiutarti. L'albergo è carino e la location è molto bella però non so veramente sotto natale quanto casino ci possa essere

Dear, Is there any packing space in hotel or near hotel? it's free or charge? thank u
Dear Mrs. Lucy, Thank you for your interest shown in Hotel Alt Deutz City-Messe-Arena, Cologne. We do recommend the public garage at the nearby LanxessArena. His garage is opened 24 hours a day and offers video surveillance. It can be reached easily within three minutes by car and 3 – 5 minutes on foot. The parking fee is € 12,00 for 24 hours or € 1,30 per hour. These spots are offered directly by the garage and we cannot guarantee availability or up-to-dateness of the tariffs. However, as per our experience there has hardly been a shortage of car parking space in the past. Assistance with this matter will be offered upon check in at the hotel. Advanced reservation is not possible. Simply mention your request to our receptionist and we will be happy to guide you accordingly. Upon arrival we recommend to stop your car within the loading zone right in front of the hotel and to proceed for check in. During check-in we will be pleased to further explain the shortest way to the garage and to hand over a way description. For your own convenience we would like to ask you to unload your luggage first before leaving for the car park. Should you have any queries or require further information please do not hesitate to contact us immediately. Yours sincerely, Hotel Alt Deutz City - Messe - Arena Nick Pauly Your friendly hotel in the heart of Cologne Graf-Gessler-Strasse 13-15 & Deutzer Freiheit 99 50679 Köln

"Choose a room in another hotel"
"You need to lift your suitcase by hand in an spiral stairs, If you like to share W/C and shower room with 8 other double rooms"
"The stairs are quite steep, so opt to book the rooms at first or second floor."
"Don't stay here!"
"I would recommend you look elsewhere and use it as a last resort."
