"Convenient for events in Kolnmesse"
A friend and I stayed here while attending Photokina, at Koelnmesse. It's "absurdly" convenient, just 5 minutes walk from the West Koelnmesse entrance. I saw some comments here in TripAdvisor saying the rooms were tired. Either they've been renovated recently or I'm easy :-) The room and bathroom were quite modern and the beds average. Internet access in the room was good and just OK at the lobby. The breakfast was very good, with plenty of options hot and cold. Not cheap, but it never is in mid-range hotels and above. On the other hand, the restaurant for dinner is average. There are not many restaurants nearby and you have to take a 15-20 minute walk to find good ones. It's a very safe walk anyways. The hotel has a convenient self service parking, if you're driving.
I stayed for 6 nights for a congress at the Koelmesse conference centre. The hotel is excellently located for this only a 2 minute walk away. However there were several problems. Mostly the staff were friendly but when trying to check out although there were 3 staff on reception two were not interested in serving customers. Also I pre paid the room, but at the time of booking the amount taken off my credit card was different to my confirmation email which caused much confusion (although this is a problem with Radisson Blu website rather than the hotel itself.) Although the choice of food was good at breakfast the restaurant was not big enough for the number of guests. My main problem was the room. This is in need of renovation. The sink was scratched and stained, part of the shower was loose and the paint on the wardrobe door was scratched.
"Business trip in Cologne/Bonn area."
Great place with convenient stay, having nice and clean rooms and great breakfast. Also a very friendly service, everywhere. Perfect for business purposes. A real recommendation for business trips in the Bonn/Cologne area.
"A very friendly hotel"
I spent 6 nights here while attending a professional conference at the adjacent conference centre. It is very convenient for the conference centre and for the trams into the city centre. The staff were very friendly and helpful. All of them spoke very good English. The room was spacious but a little shabby - the soft furnishings would be none the worse for replacement. The bed was hard. The food was Italian-themed and mostly very good. The breakfast buffet in particular was excellent. The meals in the bar were huge but tasty. Share one meal between 2. There were no restaurants or shops very close by.
"Great spot for Koln Messe"
Spent three nights, while working at the fairgrounds. Hotelbis cosy, rooms are spacy and comfortable. There was nobproblem with earlier check-in, which is a big plus. Only thing missing is wider selection of fresh fruits for breakfast. They had fruit salad only.
