Hotel im Wasserturm
A stunning abd historic building
A gorgeous hotel with extremely welcoming and friendly staff. The room was well appointed (if a little too warm) and I wpuld definitely stay again.

Avoid at all costs
Awful Hotel, totally mosleading on Website a nd on website. Not five star, has no rating at all. All restaurants closed down. Telephone broken in room, sink broken, room unclean and bed wobbled. Falsely advertised.

Excellent Hotel !!

Hotel im Wasserturm
Disappointing Cologne stay in the Round
The Hotel is situated in a reasonable walking distance to Dome and Main shopping areas. The Building itself is very attractive being a converted Water Tower. The rooms are " OK" but the Bathroom is small and I presume intentionally with old fittings. The Shower is within the Bath and future clients who have some disabilities should be aware this. For an overnight stay its ok but the Hotels car parking is a fortune € 25 per night and it's hard to park on the street locally where meters run until 11pm. Breakfast is more than the Car Park and astronomical €28 per person - there are plenty of sensibly priced Breakfast facilities locally!! What is a real disappointment is that for a 5 star Hotel the Free WiFi is terrible - in the Rooms it's impossible to work with. The shock is that they know its a long standing issue and nothing is done about it!! For a so called 5 star location this is not satisfactory. The Receptionists were made aware by several guests and all they can do is apologise!! In my opinion sadly whilst the Ambiance is great downstairs - the upstairs rooms don't live up to the Hotels rating.

One night stay
We stayed one night at the Wasserturm. Initial impression was that the architecture was very cool, and had a very warm welcome at reception. Room a little dated compared to the rest of the hotel, but very clean. Free mini bar a nice touch. Overnight the temperature in the room was really hot and we couldn't seem to adjust other than open a window, which didn't help much. Overall good stay, and would like to try the restaurant if we visited again.
