"Historic and Beautiful"
One of the most unique hotels I have stayed in. A little bit of a walk from the river. The Hockey World Cup was on during our visit ... so hotels were scarce! But very glad we got to experience this gorgeous hotel. Wonderful Cologne toiletries and a stunning suite!
This is a very interesting hotel, built in an old water tower (wasserturm). Very nice service, nice decorations, amazing restaurants (including a Michelin 1 start, which was deserved). Our only problem was that it was warm and there was no air conditioning we had in either of the two rooms we booked on the 4th floor. There had been no warning about that (we booked on the hotel's website), and no mention when we checked in. I called down to the desk and someone came up to make sure we set it right, and we had. I complained some on the way out and they gave us a free breakfast. They said some of their rooms were not renovated yet and did not have air conditioning. To be honest, I am still confused on whether there are air conditioned rooms or not at this hotel...
"A Perfect Stay"
My friend and I had a perfect stay at this hotel. Everything was perfect, the staff friendly and helpful, the minibar was included and we enjoyed a great breakfast the next morning. The location was also convenient for a visit to the Dom and museums.
Easily accessed via train from Koln's main train stations. The food, room and service is fantastic. We stayed in a maisonette double room which was a nice touch. Having two bathrooms and an upstairs and downstairs is a nice touch.
"Genuinely unique building, in a nice way"
This is a refurbished old water tower. Really well done to retain a very unique structure, so it's a lot more interesting than most hotels. Rooms are modern, not huge but ok. It was interesting enough that I'd definitely stay there again. Wouldn't even bother looking for anywhere else. Expensive enough, but there was a big exhibition on in Cologne at the time.
