About Steigenberger Hotel Köln

4-star glam with Spanish cuisine, 2 km from the Rhine

Right on Rudolfplatz

Steigenberger Hotel Köln is bang in the middle of the city, close to shopping and tourist sights. You'll be on Rudolfplatz Square, 2 km from the Rhine River and a 20-minute walk to the Cologne Cathedral in 20 minutes.

Cologne by cable car

The Cologne Cable Car, 20 minutes by tram, offers fabulous aerial views of the city, and it's a 20-minute walk to Wallraf-Richartz Museum, with artwork spanning 700 years. For a more somber experience, you can walk a km to visit the National Socialism Documentation Center.

Burgers from B-Fresh

Arena Restaurant’s show kitchen makes Spanish cuisine the center of attention, while B-Fresh is a more informal affair serving gourmet burgers.

Free WiFi, pillow menu

The hotel’s 305 guestrooms come with pillow menus for added comfort, and some rooms offer stunning cathedral views and coffeemakers. Other amenities include free WiFi and flat-screen TVs.
