Great hotel, staff and breakfast!
We stopped in Cologne for one night on our tour of Northern Europe. Delighted to stay here. Novotel have created something great - a lovely hotel in a good central location with good sized rooms which are in great decorative order. The staff are great too and they provided a fantastic breakfast that set the whole family up for the day. All this and for a great price. You would think that they are paying me for this review but honestly I cannot fault this place.

A little dated.
The hotel was a little dated but we found the location very good for exploring. The public transport is very good in the city but mainly walked everywhere. A brisk stroll will have you in the old town in 15 mins.

Perfect, we will return
We came with our 6 year old twin girls to visit the Christmas markets. It was quite a walk for the girls but all went well. The hotel was very nice and the staff were friendly. It was clean and modern. The tv in the room was huge ! Loads to choose from on the breakfast bar. We will return and will stay here again. Thank you.

Fair 4.0
Overpriced amenities
The welcome at reception was terrible. The woman was very abrupt and barked her requests at me. I have stayed at various Novotels and have always had a very warm welcome from the front desk so I was surprised that I was made to feel that I was interrupting her. The location was ok, only a short walk to the city centre. The car park was so overpriced at £17 per day and the breakfast at £19 per day each was too high a price to pay.
Andrew, gb3 night family trip
Good 6.0
Shower height was too low and the gym lacked free weights and proper space

Hated hotel bad service!!
The stay was horrible, my room wasent cleaned and when i told the employee he said they didnt have service at the time, so they will compensate with breakfast the next day, when i went to checkout they said no, and the person who offered it wasent there, they called me liar, would never go back to that hotel!
