OK but not great

We could not get into the underground parking lot (for which they charged a lot for). My wife had to call back at the interphone a few times, eventually someone open the door from the interior and left. No one acknowledge the issue or apologized. no big deal but a little unprofessional in our taste. Then we realize that we had to pay a lot for the internet, and for breakfast as well. It fell like a bad deal gradually. To top things off our room had a view on the air conditioning units. So really NOT GREAT experience.

Good but not Great

I often stay at hotels at this chain - they vary widely. The staff at every one of them is top notch. Wi-Fi is expensive, but there is a cafe on the corner that gives it to you for free. Breakfast is expensive, but good. The rooms are clean - ours was smaller than many I've stayed in at the Mercure chain.The location is great - good restaurants in the area and a subway stop also on the corner. I would stay here again.

Hotel in Düsseldorf region during MEDICA

Close to the DOM in Köln, about 10´ by foot, nice and quite neighborhood. Rooms are clean and quiet, cable TV and free but slow internet. There is a paid internet service but I did not see that it works any better, save your money. The breakfast is not included and very expensive, 18 Euros, so I had breakfast in a typical german restaurant close to the DOM. There are lots of the just around. The train to MEDICA took all in all 1hour and 4 minutes.

Excellent service and value

We were very impressed by the friendly and efficient staff who made so much difference to our short stay in Cologne, nothing was too much trouble and the rooms were very clean.Also,what a surprise awaited us on the morning of 6th Dec (St.Nicolas Day) to find a present waiting outside our room door containg chocolate,fruit & nuts. We enjoyed our stay and walked to all the attractions as we were so central.

Koeln's Mercure

Koeln is a beatiful town and hotel is located in the middle in a relatively quiet street. Major theaters, restaurants and shopping zones are nearby. Rooms are a bit smaller but everything is inside including a bathtub. The buffet breakfast is excellent.

Great Place, No Worries

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The location was great-- so you can walk to tourist sites or take a subway very easily. It was also comfortable, clean, and my room even had a nice view. The windows were large and let a nice breeze in-- great for the summer!

Excellent location, good value

Good value for the money, excellent location if you are planning to go out or dine. Lively area itself, but only ten minutes walk to cathedral. Breakfast 18€, did not test it though but looked alright. No free wifi.
