Leonardo Royal Hotel Köln - Am Stadtwald

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I have stayed at this hotel over a number of years and the recent change in brand and update to the rooms was very welcome. The staff are friendly and polite. In addition they speak english which is great as my german is limited. The rooms facing to the lake are best, and most rooms are reasonably sized for a city hotel. Breakfast buffet is fine with a good selection and is situated in the very pleasant dinning room looking out onto the lake.

The room is big, clean and pleasant. The hotel staff are very welcoming and nice. The breakfast is great. The hotel is located in a quiet area but that is also it's bigest disadvantage - its far from the city center and the covention center so you have to take 2 trains to get there. However the view from the room is great and relaxing - it's on the lake and park.

great & nice hotel! next 2 a bus stop, not far from the trian. the Reception Employees are top & very Professional. have the time 2 show the right way & where 2 go, even where 2 shop. breakfast as always was great with a big selaction of what ever you need or want. 100% a place 2 stay!

Staffs are helpful and friendly. Also all the shops and restaurants are very closed to the hotel. The service was very good. The hotel always fully booked. Also there is big garden back of the hotel. next time I will book the same because price is suitable.

Great welcome, the hotel is in a very quiet neighborhood, for personnel at the highest level, absolute cleanliness of rooms and very quick services. Every year, the services improve and staff not only speak German and English, also speaks Italian.

Untidy minibar, black mold in the shower and slow service. It took 3 calls and two hours to get an iron and a board into our room. Few hundred euros per night and I would expect to have some standard in cleaniness and service.

Lovely Hotel - good views with easy access to the city. Brilliantly situated for not only easy access to the city but also public transport. Lovely views next to the park and over the lakes. Good place to stay during the carnival season where you can get involved.

We wanted ease of access when driving from the south and ease of access to public transit in order to participate in Carnival activities without driving. The Leonardo Royal gave us both and at a reasonable cost. The room and the service were excellent. The setting was quiet and peaceful despite being in a large bustling city. It was a perfect fit for our needs.

Ok so it's a 5 min walk to the Tram Stop, & a 15 min ride into Town, BUT, the Hotel is in a lovely spot next to the Park, and Lake. Staff fantastic ( even th GM) & all those I came across spoke good English, Room had everything you need, and unusual for a European Hotel, T & C making facilities in the room, the Shower was one of the best I've come across ever in a Hotel. Nice and quiet location, there are Bars & Restaurants close by as well. Odd Question below, is it quaint ? What the hell does that mean ? It's modern and bright, and very clean.

Very nice hotel but charges too much for parking even though outside parking is free. Amazing views towards the lake and friendly staff. The rooms are efficient and comfortable. Very good value for money.
