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.

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.

Modern Hotel in Koln
A sightseeing trip over the Easter weekend brought about our stay here in Novotel Cologne. The hotel is a short walk away from the Severinstraße KVB tram station. It is a modern building with a good access for wheelchairs and wheeled suitcases from the right hand side. The reception is big and spacious and manned by friendly multi lingual staff and my young children were given some complimentary small toys - which they were over the moon with. The room is spacious enough with a queen sized bed and a fold out sofa which was already made up for us. There was plenty of storage space and a 42" tv on the wall. The bathroom was plenty big enough. The room was quiet enough but a bit louder with the window open. Obvious statement but it is right on the main road in view of the Rhine. The breakfast had a vast range of choice although it ought to have as there are so many rooms spread over the many floors. Recommended hotel for business and private stays.
