Great location

Would recommend Mon, Dec 8, 2014
Generally good. Bit of a mix up with our booking but nothing to spoil the trip. Most staff were very helpful, except one lady who was quite short with us and not very helpful. Facilities were great although due to the time of year we were unable to book into the restaurant on the fifth floor. Good base for seeing Cologne

Entertainment hint

Piano bar has great entertainment

Wonderful Cologne Messe Hotel

Would recommend Sat, Mar 15, 2014
Extremely convenient with the Heumarkt Subway station right across. Very nice hotel - rooms are clean, comfortable and good sized. Definitely recommend. Wonderful location for Cologne fair and to reach airport by subway. Just €6 from Bahnhof by Taxi. Lots of restaurants close by and the shopping district. If you upgrade the bed quality I would rate it 5star.

Quiet rooms, great views

Would recommend Mon, Sep 7, 2009
We enjoyed our stay at the Maritim Cologne, the view of the Dom from the Superior room upgrade was great. The room was very quiet, we never heard any noises from other rooms or from the plumbing. Could be a European thing, but the room came with two small separate beds instead of one king-size bed, which didn't seem to be an option, this isn't ideal for couples. The location is great, within walking distance of the Dom and other tourist interests. Can also walk to the Koelnmesse convention center, so we didn't even need a car for our stay in Cologne.

Time saver

Breakfast must not be a high priority in Cologne since it was surprisingly difficult to find a good American-style breakfast nearby, so you might as well use the breakfast buffet in the hotel.

The conference center at cologne.

Would recommend Sun, May 10, 2009
I travel a great deal, and I've stayed at a very large number of hotels. Here the staff was extremely professional, fast, and effective. The rooms were immaculate, and the layout of the hotel was great. The place is an excellent conference center, but it is a conference center and if you're staying in cologne but not for a conference, you might want to keep that in mind. The only complaint is that the mattress and bed were extremely uncomfortable. Also, in contrast with the typical European shower, which has almost no water pressure to save on water, these showers were of such high pressure that it was painful. The restaurants in the hotel were FABULOUS, but the room service food was tasteless. All the more reason to use the restaurants!!

Nightlife hint

The cathedral looks great at night. As does walking along the river. Both of these are < 2 minutes away.
