"Fantastic hotel in brilliant location"
This is a great hotel that is only ten minutes walk from the Dom, plus all the main tourist attractions and places to eat are in between the Dom and hotel too! Its close to all the shops too. The rooms are large, spotlessly clean and the windows are soundproofed from street noise (even with a main road and trams running just outside!). Bed was extremely comfortable. Bathroom was great with a walk-in shower and separate bath/shower in there. The main things stopping me giving a full five star review is that the air-conditioning was useless (we had it on the lowest setting for five days and the room never got below 22.5c) and the TV only had a few English language news channels (a minor annoyance). The free wi-fi worked great and easily watched video clips, mail and browsing. Did not eat in the hotel - at €29 per person for breakfast there are numerous coffeeshops around the hotel that serve breakfast are a normal price. Highly recommend this hotel if visiting Cologne!!
"Excellent service & location"
A friend and I stayed in mid-June and the Dorint was an excellent choice for its location, its service and, very notably, its generous breakfast buffet. It's easy to walk to the Cathedral, the main shopping area and the restaurants in the Heumarket and Altr Market. Our second floor room faced a busy avenue with trolleys and an underground station but the windows were soundproofed so well we never heard a noise from below. Front desk was friendly and efficient, immediately responding when it mistakenly seemed I had a small complaint about the room (actually I didn't; I'd simply punched a wrong button on a social media site and didn't even know it had been transmitted). I've traveled extensively in Europe and Asia and would easily recommend the Dorint Heumarket to others.
"Always A Great Place To Unwind"
I staying in this hotel about 6 years ago and when I knew I was returning to Cologne I asked for a recommendation from one of my German colleagues and they recommended this hotel not knowing I had stayed there before. The rooms are moderns, bathroom equipped with large easy to step in showers, beds are heavenly comfortable and overall very peaceful. I used the fitness center which is attached to the hotel but operated independently at a fee of 10 Euros. The gym was very active on a Friday evening with various classes and trainers. There was plenty of tread mills, bikes, elliptical machines, weights, etc. The gym hours are not convenient for early risers, opens at 7 on weekdays and at 9 on Saturdays but is open until later in the evening. I also used the laundry service but was a bit disappointed on the pressing of my business shirts. Items were clean but did I not have the nice just ironed appearance. The hotel is located within walking distance of the old cathedral and directly connected to the downtown shopping district.
"Centeral location old hotel"
Nice and central location. They have large rooms but furnitures are a little bit old and all hotel needs refurbishment. I have also stayed Dorint Messe that is new and better. Breakfast, bar and service was good.
"Excellent location and the hotel"
I stayed at Dorint in May 17. It was a nice experience. The location is the key. Just 10 min by walk from the Cathedral. You have Rewe nearby. There is a shopping street and various restaurants within 5-10 min by walk. Bus, tram and train stations are just opposite to the hotel which makes it very easy to travel within city. Regarding the hotel: Staff is polite and helpful, checkin/checkout are quick. Breakfast has many options (Being a vegetarian, I had some struggle, but believe me, it is better than many other hotels). Overall a great hotel.
