Leonardo Hotel Köln

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Me and my friends were going to a festival in Köln and choose to stay, at this hotel. This is the second year we chose to stay here, as our first experience was enjoyable. However, as this time, we were less than pleased. Although the staff was friendly and the hotel was close to the festival, we didn't have the most pleasant experience. I think it's because they have a lot of customers and as such are not coping as well with the demands. When we arrived our room was not ready. Which would have been fine as long as we got the room we paid for. We didn't. When we went upstairs some other people had been given our rooms. In one of our rooms a man was changing and in the other, a poor couple were in a compromising position! Then when we finally got into our room, there was a distinct smell of smoke.This is not the experience we paid for and leads me to not want to return to this hotel next year.

If you look for a hotel not in the center and quiet. Thats the one. Not much around and you need car or walk 10 min to get the train. Breakfast average to good. I miss fresh juice instead of this juice machines with powder of fruit that tastes crap. Wifi its really bad and keeps disconnecting all the time. Of course you can buy a better connection.

Stayed here for one night. Not the most inspiring neighbourhood but reasonably handy for s-bahn and tram. They have a car park but noticed this was very full the next morning. Check in pleasant but they struggled to find my booking. Room generally good fixtures but hot as no real air con. There is a heater/cooler but old fashioned and I didn't want it to be too noisy. Breakfast good - slightly odd that there were lots of long tables rather than tables for 2 or 4

bill was presented to include extras from restaurant that have not been consumed, debate at check out as a consequence location of hotel poor, service personal from hotel restaurant state their pizza oven is not good and recommend to better arrange for a take away from turkish shop unexpected 10 EUR city tax for a location where sights if at all are in several mile ( not walking) distance

Hotel is located bit far from City Center. I have stayed in few other hotels in the same locality and Leonardo Hotel is better and value for money. Plenty of options for the breakfast and rooms are spacious. There are few eateries nearby. Hotel staffs could have bit more courteous and free wifi for basic emails only is bit too much when free wifi is available even in a coffee shop now a days.

A good middle of the road business hotel. Rooms clean, tidy and well equipped with basics. Free wifi is good for e-mail and internet use; faster options available for heavier internet uses. Easy and quick access to Cologne and to airport. Excellent breakfast with very varied and fresh buffet selections (smoked salmon, scrambled egg, coffee and fruit for me). Well-stocked supermarket next door good for basics, snacks, fruit etc. Safe and secure location, friendly and helpful staff, have stayed several times and would stay again.

Good Business Hotel near fair Koeln and Railwaystation. The rooms are nice and tidy. The kitchen is fabulous. Very good Food, very tasty. Best of all is the great Buffet for Breakfast. No wishes open after that. We stayed at the Hotel for Business meeting

Stayed for 4 nights December 2016, visited from UK to visit Christmas markets. Hotel a 5 mins from tram/train station short trip 10 mins into centre of Cologne. Rooms clean and modern. Facilities good, pool wifi etc Good selection at buffet breakfast. Staff all friendly and helpful. Supermarket next to hotel. Would recommend and stay again.

We enjoyed our stay in Leonardo hotel. Very spacious and clean room, only it was very hot even with heater on lower stand. Exceptional breakfast with various choice of hot and cold dishes, fresh fruits and juices. Nice sauna and swimming pool, accessible via elevator. Location is 15-20 minutes from city center but close to Odisseum museum.

Thought that we would save some money by changing our normal hotel for Cologne Markets, Really far out, trains stop from HBF at 8 which made us have to get taxis , average cost 20 euro from the Markets, Hotel lobby very nice, Bar very expensive, Found an old sock under Bed ?? even though we got the room cleaned twice and it didn't belong to us, Rooms are clean but could be a tiny bit better Reception staff was very rude on check in and Check out , especially when it came to payment, they insisted on taking the payment plus Block booking the same amount of money off my card till it was cleared, I found this very strange as the Visa card machine confirmed payment, Sent an email to the hotel just as a review, and nothing back Would go back if i was desperate for a room over Christmas but wouldn't recommend
