“Bad experience”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

Hotel seems to be furnished in 70's , for 200EUR I expect good services and not the one I got... The location was for me good as my client is nearby. Noise from the airport, noise from the highway, "business" internet with 250mb limit for 17EUR/24hours, empty minibar, tv reporting the needed change from analog to digital over the half of the screen and staff which does not really care...

There was a trade conference on in Cologne which meant we couldn't get any Company approved hotel in the centre, so had to commute to and from the airport hotel daily. Actually not a problem, courtesy bus to S-Bahn train station/airport, and S13 train straight into Cologne centre for 2.60 euros in less than 15 minutes. Hotel room was good, very big with two double beds in it. Clean, tidy etc, no problems. Had a drink and a meal in the bar on one evening, and I have to say both were suprisingly inexpensive and good. They had Sky TV with football on which helped to pass the time. Breakfast was fine, German and English selections, nothing could be faulted. Would return here, but not at the rate which we had to pay. 134 euros a night without breakfast is far too expensive.

This hotel is average in every way. Nothing is wrong - but it won't leave any impression on you because it is pretty charmless. Stayed here for the convenience of being able to get a morning flight from airport. A shuttle bus will take you to the airport which is about 3 minutes away.
Room was ok - average size. Shame there was no water in the room - and the internet is expensive to buy. You would think that in this day and age that hotels would not charge for use of internet. After all this is not a really cheap hotel.
The staff were also pretty average. They looked bored - which isn't surprising if you think your view is of a road and an airport...but they really did not give a warm welcome. My colleague's internet was not working in her room and they were quite dismissive until they realised that there was a technical problem and she wasn't making it up. We asked for a recommendation for a restaurant in Koln that night - but they said they didn't know. Also beware that in their wisdom the good councillors of Cologne add a 6 euro (think that is what it was) cultural tax payment for you on your hotel bill. What culture did I get next to the airport I really can't say.What a rip off.

Plus points - breakfast looked ok and staff in restaurant seemed quite warm. Shuttle bus took us on time to catch plane.

If you have a choice - I would choose somewhere else.

On arrival at the airport, it was hard to find the phone to call the hotel (for the record, in Terminal 1, it is behind the airport information booth). The shuttle van arrived within 10 minutes, although we were nervously waiting for it to spot us outside waiting. Surely there must be a better way for the hotel to organise the shuttle van?

There is no free wifi at the hotel. This is absurd considering that free wifi is now becoming common at most good hotels. Anyway, I decided to pay for an Internet connection (in public areas only, not in rooms) but for some reason this didn't work. The staff members showed a small amount of helpfulness but then gave up.
