Pleasant stay at Novotel Köln
Our stay at the Novotel in Cologne was fantastic. We were travelling with a 6 year old and a 5 month old baby and the staff were very friendly and helpful when we required the bottle steriliser to be filled daily. The bar staff were friendly and chatty and 1 waiter in particular always stopped to talk to my 6 year old son in English and also was happy to hear my son's German. All in all it was a great stay and we would certainly stay again when we next travel to the city.

Average Stay.
Located in the business district and close to the chocolate museum. Hotel nice and clean. Staff not overly friendly. For a four star hotel, room amenities were below average. Tea / coffee not replenished every day. Had to ask for extra towels as two towels for a family of four with young kids not enough. Food services limited and the hotel restaurant closes at 9. The closest place to eat is a walk about 15 mins to the Cathedral area. Overall wouldn’t stay there again due to limited services and location not ideal for a family.
