We stay in the hotel as a family only one night on our way back home to London. The hotel is not so close to the airport as we were expected but not to far - 15 min taxi ride for €20. The room was good enough with comfortable bed and good shower. The breakfast was very good and it was served in a spasious cafe with a nice interior. However, we did not feel very welcome by the receptionist when we arrived after midnight. He wasn't in mood to speak to us at all and we received a very little attention from him. Early morning someone just open the door to our room with a key and without knocking and further apologies. The morning receptionist just said that it was a technician who came to check the telephone in the room and didn't see why he need to apologise for these unexpected morning visitor. So, we found the staff on reception rude and very unpleasant. Over all, the hotel was exactly what you are paying for.
The room and bed were ok. I note several shortcomings. A bottle of plain still water (1 Liter) costs 4 euro. I understand the need to make a profit but this is consumer extortion. The shower cabin is really small. There are no international news channels on tv - which seems weird for an airport hotel. What is most annoying about the hotel is the elevator. It does not work correctly and it takes ages to get from one floor to the other. This hotel is only ok if you get it for a cheap rate.
Terrible expensive and outdated. Personal around 6.00 - 10.00 seems to hate everyone except the Germans . After expending more than 3000 euros for 5 days , every request was a no. Avoid it by all means unless this is the way that manage guests when a trade show is going one . The avoid kōln and choose another city / country where to waste you so hard earned money. Never again.
I spent a couple of days during a very warm September. The room without air conditioned were so hot that was impossible to sleep. There was just a small window just in front of the garbage bin and the smell was horrible. Receptionists unable to book a taxi to get the downtown.
This hotel was situated opposite the Rhine river and we had a lovely view. The rooms are very big, well presented and modern with a good sized bathroom, wifi, plenty of storage and Flat screen TV and an average priced bar/fridge. The hotel does offer breakfast however we did not try this. The train and Z bahn is literally just 10 mins walk away and it only cost 2.80 euros to catch a train to Cologne city centre. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby including a lovely walking path alongside the Rhine. There is a daily river boat which arrives just outside the hotel at 10.30 everyday which can take you as far as Duesseldorf taking in the history along the way. The hotel also offers a secure car park for 9 euros for your stay, however, it is very, very tight to get in/out and around especially if you have a large car! Definitely a good stop over for families/couples etc.
This hotel is fine for a night for example before an early flight from Cologne airport. Beware there are only a very limited number of parking spaces in the garage below. Do not stay here if you want to be close to the city center as that is about a 20 /25 minute drive away.
Found this via the Booking hotel app and it was on offer as the cheapest hotel near the Koln airport Knowing I would only get max 4 hours sleep here, cheap was the priority It's actually far better than expected It's clean, it has a decent TV, free water and free wifi Adequate space with plenty of storage space and a room safe Couldn't ask for more for just €35 (at the time of this review) Breakfast is optional, but I was always going to be having that at the airport
I arrived late - well 7pm and wanted to stay a night in Cologne but not drive far from the airport with a new rental car and since I am a member of Accor advantage plus I looked up all the accor properties in the area and this one had both the best price and location - although I would not technically call it an airport hotel with 12 min drive away.. I came from the wrong direction and could not turn into their carpark as there was a median barrier on the road so went past it and turned left at the next light - thinking they might have another entrance behind the hotel - this street was a dead end - BUT after 7pm parking was free and I figured a minute or two on foot to the hotel could not hurt if it saves me exorbitant parking fees there.. and I was right. I parked the car right next to the River Esplanade and a little alleyway led straight to the hotel - easy. Being a Mercure I did not expect the hotel to have no Bar/Restaurant (I could have checked that before hand though) but they do have a breakfast room in the mornings - which I did not use as I wanted to have a very early start. My room overlooked a busy looking restaurant so I had to close both windows to get some peace and quiet but at least the curtains where dark enough to sleep. Bathroom was smallish but ok and the room itself was of a good size and had a fully equipped minibar with not too expensive prices by the looks of it. Overall I would happily stay here again as it is well located next to the River and only 20 - 30 min to Cologne City Centre by car - or indeed public transport.
We have stayed at several Mercure Hotels now and have yet to come across a bad one. If you are looking for a luxury hotel for a longer stay this is not for you. If however you want a seriously cheap hotel for a brief stop over look no further. It is not far from the airport or hotel, is very clean and modern and has a good standard of finishes. Yes the bath is budget but for less than £50 it's fantastic. The rooms are large and the beds very comfortable. The bar is 5 star status but was a big surprise. Very friendly service, reasonable prices and very good food - and open until midnight! Bliss. I love a good breakfast and don't mind paying for it but the breakfast was the only disappointment really - not expensive, but nothing special, save your money and find a cafe if you have the time. That aside a great hotel - many thanks.
Very easy access to airport but quite far away from city center. Extremely good breakfast and helpful staff. The rooms we stayed in had all a beautiful view to the river Unfortunately the bar was closed during the stay
