Recent guest reviews

Nice and classic grandeur. Note the carpet and dog so not ideal for someone like me with allergie. Bed is ok, soft pillow not OK for myself. TV channels limited. Service friendly Breakfast large variety like to expect.

Great hotel, great service and good food! Every part of the hotel is really nicely decorated . The rooms are luxurious and very clean. We recommend the trattoria which has a very good wine cellar. Breakfast is also very nice! We had a great stay!

We booked this hotel for a business trip since cologne hotel were just overbooked or overpriced. A true old European style and even more. Service and staff - all of high quality, pleasant and helpful. Breakfast nicely served and the selection is simple but tasty. The rooms are of fine quality... could use some renovation, but on the other hand - this part of what old style stands for. Amenities are simple, but your room is treated several times a day, and you do feel pampered. And he Italian restaurant is a gem ... fine cuisine, served with the eighth slowness to let you truly enjoy the dishes and the wine... good 2.5 hours well spent without having to go too far. Certainly a place to come back to for few days of relaxation.

No comments at all - 100% !!! The booking, the welcome, the service, the restaurants, the wellness - OMG!! All top - we've been here for the 5th time and Always sad to be leaving back home... Thank you to the whole crew and contrats to Thomas Althoff!!!

If you are looking for a perfect stay I can recommend this Place without any restrictions. Beautiful well, big bathroom with any comfort. Nice staff, very good kitchen. We spent two christmas days there and had a wonderful time. The staff really tries hard to make you feel home and individually terated.

Although it is a stunning place by the outside; it needs maintenance. Furniture at the halls looks careless. The hotel is far from Cologne, but still you can find almost everything just walking a few steps. Rooms are small and have uncomfortable Pillows,(very thin) Besides you can hear guests at the next room, And The cleanning could be better as well as the performance of the employees in charge of the front desk. Perhaps they have a lot to do. It would be fine if they had concierge staff. Also we had dinner at it's renowned Michelin restaurant, and it is a nightmare to find it, is really a labyrinth!

Well organized hotel with intelligent and friendly staff. Rooms are beautiful, although a bit old-fashioned. Stayed here while we also had dinner at the stately Vendome. Slept in and missed the breakfast, but could easily be fitted-in with the Champagne Brunch and mingled with dressed-up German families.

Stayed here for a couple of nights over Christmas period: recommended. Old World charm in a unique surrounding. The building is a former palace and has been tastefully transformed into a 5 star, luxury destination. If you stay during the lead-up to Christmas, you will be blessed with a local, German Christmas Market on the grounds of the hotel. Food is excellent - especially breakfast, staff friendly and the environment tranquil. Walks in the local forest recommended and even a playground exists next door for the little ones. Easy to drive here though the local train that leads straight to the city centre in 30 minutes is about a 1km walk.

Everything about this place is excellent. We enjoyed our stay of two night a lot, together with our family. Breakfast was outstanding, roomservice very fast. We had dinner at the Enoteca, and enjoyed the Italian wine and food. Valet parking and porter service adds to the experience. Great connection by public transport into Köln. Finally, the beautiful pool seals the deal. I highly recommend this place.

Rude staff! We didn’t stay at this hotel We only booked for a meal in the restaurant our booking was at 6.30 and we came at 5.30 In the reception they told us the restaurant will open at 6 but you can sit in the bar until then, We went to the bar and someone approached us we start to talk in English and he ask if we are staying in the hotel and we said no then he said you can’t drink here and started to talk and German and got very aggressive! So we sat in the lobby for an hour waiting for restaurant to open without allowing us to even have a drink! Avoid this place
