The hotel is elegant, the rooms spacious and the location perfect (right across from the Cologne Dome). The service is also superb. The surprise is that such a traditional setting hosts a restaurant that is very new age in both decor and food. From the minute we walked in the hotel's Taku Restaurant, I felt transported in time and space from old world Germany (lobby) to a very edgy decor restaurant (there is a plexiglas blue lit floor running through the restaurant that resembles a flowing river). The food was fabulous and creatively presented. While surprised by this unexpected mix, it works well in creating an enjoyable and inviting atmosphere. We would DEFINITELY stay here again and dine at Taku.
