This Place is Falling Apart

I stayed at this hotel 5 years ago. Fantastic. Now - terrrible! This hotel must be going through management change or something. Room was not clean. Reservation "had been lost" (and then found). Equipment was missing in the gym. And, the 2 of 4 elevators were broken. The staff didn't care! Do not stay at the Radisson Blue in Cologne!

Dishonest, unorganized and incompetent

I stayed at the Radisson, since it was right next to the Cologne convention center. However, I felt my stay was plagued with vagueness and confusion. The majority of the problems occurred while I was checking out. Basically I found hidden charges that I was completely unaware of, including a 46 euro breakfast. They also refused to use the company credit card which was used for my original booking. In the end the staff appeared incompetent, rude and apathetic. I would not recommend this hotel again. If you do have to attend a conference in Cologne, there is another hotel directly across the street from the convention center that I would highly recommend.
