"Fine, but there still is a lot of room for improvement "
The staff is friendly and nice, and the hotel is clean, and very close to everything. But we paid for two business class rooms. One of them didn't have a coffee/tea maker, and the other room simply didn't have the coffee. Also one of the rooms didn't have any soap in the shower. Both rooms had problems with the air conditioning, so the only way to cool the rooms was to open the windows to the noisy street. The bar downstairs was so loud that we had a hard time getting sleep, and we lived on the second floor. However on the plus side, the hotel had one of the best breakfast buffets I've ever seen. Should I return to Köln (great city by the way), I would choose another hotel.
"Good stay in Cologne"
Everything you would want from a good city centre hotel. Good hotel with a really good quality breakfast. Rooms are very adequate but could do with a bit of updating soon. Very centrally located and actually preferred it to other nearby more expensive hotels I have stayed in.
"Good hotel, great location"
We stayed in this hotel a few times. First time a few years ago, was great! Breakfast was amazing, room was upgraded and very beautiful. The other times, we had a regular room, which was ok, all facilities available, but to our opinion the room is outdated in relation to the price. Breakfast is still very good, location is ideal and there is a cosy bar.
"A great hotel with great service"
I just had a one night stop over in cologne on my way to munich and atayed at the Lindner hotel city plaza. The hotel is just great and amazing service. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. The gym is open 24hrs and is just perfect. I definately have to mention that the bed is one of the best ive ever slept in....simply amazing! Definately stay here if i ever visit cologne again...
"An average hotel with good location, excellent wifi and very good water pressure."
Check in was conducted in the lobby of the hotel, with a wait time of about five minutes. Upon entering my 'Business Class' room, I discovered that there was one king bed, although I had specified two twin beds in the reservation. The receptionist did not bring up the bed configuration possibilities when checking-in. I returned to the reception and asked to be relocated to a room with two twin beds, and used this opportunity to request a room facing the back (away from the street). When entering the new room, I was glad that it faced the courtyard and pleased to find two twin beds. I was, however, displeased that it was, apparently, a smoking room. But, I decided to tolerate this as the other requests were fulfilled and the room was not too smoke-infested. The furnishings and bathroom fixtures were dated, but the room was quite cosy and comfortable. The shower and sink water pressure was excellent. The complimentary wifi was excellent and I achieved download speeds of up to 45 Mbit/s. The minibar fridge is left empty so that one is free to stock it as they please. There was a vending machine on the floor corridor near the lift. The air conditioning was minimal, but the outdoor temperatures at the time were not hot, so it is not possible to say whether the air conditioning can support cool temperatures on hot days. The bedding was borderline; the polyester blankets promoted significant sweating in the night. Sleep quality was not good. The mattress was quite soft. The hotel is conveniently located at Friesenplatz, a one-minute walk from the Friesenplatz U Bahn station. It is about a 15-minute walk from the Dom, a 5-minute walk to Rudolfplatz and a 10-minute walk to Neumarkt or Heumarkt. In summation, the Lindner Hotel City Plaza is an average hotel, with dated furnishings and design, but with excellent bathroom water pressure, and is quite conveniently located at Friesenplatz. I paid approximately €90 per night during my stay, which is a satisfactory price for a hotel of this standard. I will think carefully whether I return to this hotel in the future.
