    « Very comfortable for a week's stay »

    Large room with king bed and balcony on fifth floor. Strong Internet service. Quality restaurant in hotel, and outstanding brauhouse just a very very short walk out the door! Close by to Tram that can take you to Neumarket and the Cologne Dom. We would stay there again.

    « Good value and comfort »

    We stayed here to attend a concert at the nearby Palladium . The location is a little way away from the city centre but can be easily reached by the nearby tram. The hotel features comfortablerooms with nice bedding and functional bathrooms. Everything works well and is good value. The breakfast is excellent though you may have to wait for a table as the breakfast room is a little small relative to the size of the hotel. We felt welcomed and had an excellent stay.

    « Very good hotel »

    This hotel is really good, has big rooms and all facilities. I choose this hotel because it's close to Palladium, but I was surprised of quality of this hotel and I definitely would recommend this hotel to other travelers.

    « Value for money stay »

    The hotel is situated close to the highway and subway system can be used to go to the city center. The check in and out were efficient. Free WiFi increases satisfaction. The room was big and clean. The only disadvantage was the rooms facing main street are noisy. I suggest to ask for rooms facing back.

    « Average hotel »

    Due to a trade show I got to spend 4 nights at Best Western. The big bonus is that it is very close to Koelnmesse by car and therefore convenient. Another plus is as well the big breakfast. Besides - it is quiet noisy, you can easily hear the plans land at the not far away airport. So: ok place, but next time I will go for something different.

    « Good for short stay »

    I was on a trip with my band and we were searching for a place to stay for 1 night... This was the nearest one and we couldn't have made a better choice! There is nothing fully perfect at hotels, but this is close to giving you a nice and cozy German experience! So I recommend it if you are staying for few days in the city...

    « Clean & Comfy »

    We chose this hotel as it was about half way between Paris & Berlin & we were familiar with the name. It met our expectations with the highlight being the friendly bartender, Wasim. The food was good but give their coffee a miss. Would recommend as a quick stopover but we weren't impressed with the town of Cologne.

    « Great hotel and an enjoyable stay »

    Stayed here for four days last week and I have to say I was very impressed by the overall standard in the hotel. Location wise, it was perfect for Gamescom with a tram service a short walk away. Room was well cleaned, welcome on reception was excellent with fluent English spoken which helped as my German is hardly fluent. Nice mini-gym upstairs with sauna, weight bench, cardio machines etc and a lovely roof terrace where you can sit and chill out. There is an excellent restaurant next door to the hotel which was very good. The hotel restaurant itself though seemed pretty overpriced by comparison which was bewildering. Another winner here is the Free WiFi which you are given on up to two devices per room. This was available in the room with good signal strength. In the modern world this is essential, especially if you are travelling with data hungry teenagers. Location wise it is pretty much out of the town and in the suburbs. Don't stay here if you want to be central to Cologne as you won't be, but that didn't both me as we weren't there for that purpose. Overall very impressed and a good hotel experience.

    « Convenient stay »

    Stayed here as a stop over on the way home from holiday. The room was spacious, clean and bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was really good. Staff were friendly. Wi fi was good. For dining, the hotel had it's own restaurant. We also found a McDonald's within walking distance. There was also an Aldi nearby from wherewe bought our drinking water and juices for the night. There was a secured parking in underground garage for €17 per night. That was shockingly expensive and I can't deny that it would have been nice of the hotel to clearly inform customers in their website about the parking charges. Overall, good convenient stay.

    « Good value for money »

    Nice big rooms, nicely located very near to bus stop, nice and elaborate breakfast for free and a small but useful workout room. Gives you a good value for money, specially if you are on business trip around Mulheim or Leverkusen with good direct bus going just from the front of the hotel.

    « Bath <3 »

    Don't expect it to be anywhere near citycenter. And you have to take couple of steps to be in nearest train station. Area seemed quite safe, even later in the evening. We never had any breakfast in hotel, but in next door there was very good restaurant. Cleaning was little bit poor. Beds were good and there was good aircon. Nice reception staff.

    « Good service »

    A good hotel in a busy city. Clean, friendly and helpful staff. Very good breakfast. A welcome place to stay and easy to get to. Not right in the centre of the city but good for the zoo and cable car and botanical gardens. Underground nearby. Decor good, bed comfortable and not noisy in the evenings.

    « Great for dogs and close to Bayarena »

    Stayed two nights here to visit Cologne and to see Bayer Leverkusen play Berlin. Great area near park, and a short drive to Bayer Leverkusen bus parking lot. We had to bring our (Large breed) dog with us. They welcomed her just as they did us. They even brought some dog treats and "poo" bags. There is a restaurant next door that is great! Some of the best beer around, and good "pub" food.

    « Great hotel, spacious clean rooms »

    The hotel is very nice, spacious rooms and there is a very good restaurant. A bit far from the city centre though. We arrived early and they gave us our room right away, staff was very professional and friendly. Wi-fi is free and is with a good signal. Close to the river and to a tram/bus stop.

    « Price-Performance-ratio was unbelievable »

    We had a nice room, Everything very clean, you could feel very well in this hotel. We had only one night, but we had no reclamation. The buffet of breakfeast was super, we had all, we need to start a new, good an succesfull day. Join The hotel and you'll fell the same. Best regards...

    « Functional but good hotel »

    I like this hotel, not in a great area, lousy signage but actually the staff are very friendly, it is good value and while the restaurant is not great there is better one next door. Bedrooms are large and clean Practical, helpful and good value

    « Weekend bezoek »

    Hotel is neat and employees are very friendly. For that it really deserves 4 stars, only minor is; everything is very small , the corridors , the rooms , the elevators, which makes the whole a bit stuffy , the bar is small. Fortunately the hotel in the city so that you can easily go.

    « One night stay »

    I stayed only one night with late arrival and early check out. I liked the wine (Riesling, Mosel) in lobby bar (however 8&euro; for a Glas was yet little too much) Breakfest was OK. So I would say it is reflecting the price and hotel type. I might complain about very soft bed, but that is question of everyone's preferencies. If you want to know, price for taxi from the airport was 33&euro;

    « Poor service, dated hotel »

    The rooms are old, dated, in need of updating. Thermostat in room did not work and the room was really hot. Staff was indifferent, just did their jobs, the minimum. Never offered assistance, never felt like a valued guest. Still waiting for an accurate bill. They put charges on my card after I checked out -- no receipt of explanation.

    « Truly average hotel... what else expect from Best Western »

    Well, the truth is it is ideal for one night stay. BUT! Hotel is quite old and need refurnishing. I thought I am back in 1990's. The rooms are fine, beds are soft, food is terrible, service is a 3-star category. As we can see for example from the Manager of this hotel answering the same reaction (system ctrl+c -> ctrl+v) to varying customer's complains - means that there is absolutely 0% effort to push the hotel somewhere higher...

    « Unfriendly reception »

    Basically this is the best demonstration hat in case staff is unfriendly the hole experience remains in a bad shape. Mrs Hampe at the reception desk. A smile ? You kidding ? No way. Ok was 19.00 however. I asked the room on the end of the corridor. Is mot possible to change the rooms, instruction from the management. What kind of sit is that? Beside this, rooms very clean ! Breakfast fantastic, including the lady who serve coffee. And the best is...mrs hampe with her unfriendliness did don ask me about the breakfast should be included or not . So had to queue 2x times. The hotel is ok for private use as well, me personally will not go again as this lady at the reception was just unbelievable...... So the overall experience destroyed by a staff member, great! What is the learning out of it ? Customer service is not a department ! Is an attitude !

    « Nothing Outstanding »

    The Hotel is a standard Bestwestern mostly for business, located outside the center of the city and it cost 25Euro with a Taxi to reach the center. Parking is not included and cost 17Euro per day, you must pay a 19% Tax to use the Sauna and Fitness, the staff needs to be better trained

    « Close to the Rhine »

    Comfortable rooms, clean and with great parking. It was easy to drive around this area. We walked down to the Rhine River. There were many restaurants to choose from in the area but the food in the hotel restaurant was excellent as well. There were fireworks on the river one night which we were able to watch from the roof of the hotel.

    « convenient hotel for a short city trip to Cologne »

    We received a warm welcome at the reception, our room was spacious and spotlessly clean, tea and coffee-making facilities in our room and a small mini-bar - everything we needed. The breakfast buffet was very good - everything we needed and staff were friendly and prompt with service. We found a free parking space outside (being next to the police station means it is unlikely cars will be broken into). Very convenient location for getting in and out of the city - would definitely recommend this hotel. If you book on the hotel's own booking website, it is cheaper than using one of the booking portals.

    « Best Hotel in Cologne »

    Visited Germany in the month of Sep' 2015 and was staying at Best Western Park Consul, Cologne. I must admit, this is one of the best hotels in Cologne and have all the amenities with a friendly staff to assist you 24x7. Hotel is centrally located with quick connectivity to the city centre. Highly recommended if you're travelling to Cologne, Germany. Cheers.

    « Very good hotel »

    This hotel is very nice, with spacious and clean rooms, as well as a nice staff! The only negative point is the parking, it is supposed to be free.. But at the entrance of it there is written that it is 3&euro;/h and 13&euro;/night which is not free at all! It is definetly worth the money asked for a night!

    « Good destination for a city trip »

    We stayed 2 nights for a weekend on a city trip in this hotel. Easy going, everything went smooth, check-in at late arrival, getting food at the restaurant at a "very late" hour. The rooms are large and equipped with all amenities you need. Coffee / tea maker, Wifi (not soooooo strong in the rooms) and also the bath room had all things you need. Breakfast was good sorted, lots of stuff to choose from. Going with public transportation to the city was easy, just a few steps to walk to the next station. Nothing else left then to highly recommend this hotel for a business or city trip.

    « High level Hotel »

    I have been there for 2 nights and I felt quite well in it. Overall good service and good breakfast. I recomend the rooms ending with 10 or 11 for the nice set up and the street views. The only inconvenience is the long distance to the city center. But it is well located for a fast scape out of Cologne.

    « Clean, good location »

    I stayed here for 7 nights on a business trip. The rooms were clean and the staff were friendly. The location was also good since it was close to transit. It was a 10 minute walk and 4 tram stops to Koelnmesse for a trade show. The rooms did have a small bar fridge, but didn't have some other amenities I would have expected. There was no iron in the room, but I was able to get one from hotel staff. There also weren't any toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body lotion), so I was thankful I brought my own. The hair dryer worked, but was so powerless it took double the time than normal to dry my hair. If I were to stay here again, I would definitely bring my own. The shower was odd and uncomfortable, but I managed. Overall, I had a good experience at this hotel, but there were a few comforts of home that were missing.

    « Professional Hotel »

    OK its a chain but excellent polite knowledgable staff ,decent restaurant and bar.Had a large room on 5th floor with balcony excellent king size bed and very clean modern decor.Would definately stay hear again if in Cologne

    « Meh »

    If you want somewhere clean with a bed then This is ok but there's nothing much about this hotel that would make me stay here again. Very dated, needs a refurb. breakfast was ok but bowls and glasses provided were like thimbles - I assume in a bid to decrease waste/costs? They also ran out of irons which was not handy being on a business trip.. Location is ok but nothing of note in walking distance so you can't just pop into a bar or restaurant nearby.

    « Recommended »

    We went on a week's holiday to Cologne and decided to choose Best Western Premier. We enjoyed our stay. The staff were all helpful and friendly. The room was clean and spacious. The daily cleaning was thorough. Although our room overlooked a main roadway we did not hear the traffic. The hotel is a few train stops out of the city centre but the journey is manageable and not tedious. Can't find much fault with the hotel. I recommend it.

    « Avoid this hotel »

    We stayed in this hotel for one night in August during our holiday in Europe. When we checked out the front desk insisted that we have to pay $50 for one extra bed. We cleared said we have 3 people when we booked the hotel and this was the only place we had problem with among the 9 hotels we stayed in Europe. Also we left a jacket in the hotel and we write to them to see if they have it and if so we would be willing to pay the shipping to have it back, and guess what: not a single word from them.

    « Good Qulity/price relationship »

    We stayed here for two nights, because we went to see David Gilmore in Oberhaussen. The personnel was really charming and helpful. The rooms were big and clean, easy to park area, and not very far away from the city center.

    « Great Hotel »

    We traveled as a group and all stayed here. Five couples and a baby. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The lobby bar is great for a after diner nightcap served up by Waseem the award winning barman.

    « Poorly managed - Avoid! »

    Stayed at this hotel recently when attending the Cologne Messa exhibition centre. Hotel is in need of refurbishment, all rather tired. Air conditioning did not work, when I complained I was told it was too hot outside, surely this is what air conditioning is for!! I asked for a fan and was told they did not have any. The free wifi was poor and only worked from time to time, at a slow speed, when I complained they told me there were too many guests using the service in the hotel!! The TV did not work on English channels, when I complained I was told there was a problem that needed attention, but they did not know when this would be rectified. The hotel was poorly managed and full of Chinese package tour guests who were smoking in entrance doorways. Best keep away, I will certainly not be back

    « Run down and disappointing. »

    I stayed a few nights for business. This was the most depressing Best Western stay I've had. Overall the room was in poor shape: the walls had several cracks, as well as scuffs and dings, the trash can had been badly abused, the chair was near falling apart, the lighting was dim, and the carpet by the window had faded all the way from maroon to light yellow. I found the parking fee extortionate and not justified by the neighborhood, which is not so nice. The internet was extremely slow, to the point of being unusable in the evenings. There was no coffee maker in the room (only instant coffee). The pillows were American-type, no feathers, only foam. The shower did not drain properly, so I stood in a big puddle each time I used it. The only positives were the high ceiling and large windows, and the closet had lots of hangers. The breakfast was good. I wondered if maybe I had been assigned the worst room because I booked at the last minute for a high rate, with poor availability because of a trade show. Although my company recommends this hotel, I would not stay here again.
