"Good but expensive "
It is well located in a walking distance from the center. It is clean and with modern decoration. The breakfast was quite good with various options but every day the same. But for sure no value for money since the prices were extremely high.
"Expensive Cold Shower"
Very expensive hotel considering there is no airconditioning, a possible cold shower, and tea bags don't get replaced when they are used. The price was obviously inflated to take advantage of the Interzum Fair week.
The hotel was very nice and confortable! i really enjoyed my staying and i really suggest this to everyone. The hotel is close enough to the centre to be practical and far enough to be in a calm place! There are a lot of nice things around the hotel like the chocolate museum or the river that offer a really nice view.
"Not a must"
I spent a night at this hotel for a short trip in couple. The parking is not included in the price of the room. The breakfast is average but with the hotel full it's really nosy and too small (people queuing outside for a table). The room (I had an XL room) are just average, the view is not spectacular, the windows are blue or yellow tinted which gives a unpleasant light in the room. The lounge bar and restaurant are really expensive. The plus side is : The bedding confortable The large bathroom The cleanliness I was staying at the radisson blu and I will highly recommend it over this hotel if you're not against walking 10 extra minutes to the city center.
"Comfortable, modern and great location for seeing Cologne"
My Girlfriend and I stayed at the Art L'otel for a Saturday night in March and ahve a lovely stay there. Whilst the entrance to the hotel is rather underwhelming the foyer area is very modern and bright and the staff were friendly and helpful on reception. Check in was very easy and we were informed that we had been upgraded to a larger room than we had booked (we had booked a Deluxe River View room) - always nice to hear! The room itself (101) was modern, bright and airy with a large comfortable bed, desk with coffee machine phone etc and a flat screen TV. There were a couple of 'comfy' chairs by the window and the bathroom was very large. The whole room was very clean. My only comment on the room would be the 'River View' which I think is a bit of a stretch and would be from most rooms in the hotel. Whilst you can see the river it is only a small part of the river as between the hotel and the main flow is an island on which many buildings sit and sop you can't really see very much of the river (including the Schokoladen museum - well worth a visit). This was not the end of the world however I feel the description is a bit of an exaggeration and would be similar for all River View Rooms. It is still nicer than looking out onto a main road to be fair! One particularly good point to note was the sound proofing of the room - we were not disturbed by any noise at all during our stay, from either outside or other rooms, something we noted very positively! The room comes with a mini bar, safe etc and of note has both European plugs and a single British 3 pin plug. It is in ideal location for exploring Cologne, being a 10 minute walk from the Central Train Station and Kolner Dom. There are a number of restaurants and Brauhaus's (beer halls - definitely worth going to and trying the small glassed of local beer - Kolsch) relatively close by and it is in a lovely location to walk by the Rhine and get to the very close Schokoladen Museum. The staff were very friendly throughout our visit and assisted us with trying to book a restaurant table for dinner. Overall we had a very nice and comfortable stay here. We would definitely recommend it and would stay here ourselves if we returned to Cologne.
