            The hotel is wonderful regarding design, restaurantes are great, excellent choice.

            I think it has a problem in de Maisonette rooms, the stair is really small and curve so it is almost impossible to take your luggage upstairs where the bedroom is. So at the end your suitcase will be in the sitting area. Also my room smell of humidity.

          • Single
            5.4

            I liked the restaurants, and the unike design

            Breakfast was totally unacceptable for the price of 28 euros/person, overall the value for money was quite low. also unacceptable the extra cherge of 35 euros per person for 2nd person in the same room.

          • Group of friends

            to far away from the old town (altstadt)

            the staff was not that friendly in the bar and during the reception wich we followed for the german Netbisquits company. The reception at the frontdesk was friendly, but did nothing extra. They forgot to ask if we parked in the garage (they could have know this) so my collegue got no exit.

            The service was great, the people there were really nice, and I liked the interior of the hotel a lot.

            Actually, I think it is kind of ridiculous that you have to pay for your internet access in a hotel of this price category...

            loved it as unique in all ways as the building is a old water tower and has history. loved it,

          • Single
            3.8

            The architecture. It's a remodeled water tower, and the views from the high floors are spectacular. The female barkeeper - a true mixologist.

            The room size is minuscule on the 9th floor. Due to the bathroom design water leaks out all over it and spills onto the wall to wall carpet in the hallway. There is no adequate ventilation and thus the sweet smell of mold permeates the room. There is no air conditioning and on a 90 degree day the room is sweltering. Plus it's a brick building, so don't expect it to cool down soon.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The staff were super friendly - we also got an upgrade to a suite, which was a lovely surprise. The hotel is unique and we would stay there again if we are ever in Cologne again.

            The location was a bit odd. Although, it wasn't far to walk to the older, more scenic part of Cologne.

            I found the staff very helpful and friendly. One girl in particular helped me to get a computer problem . I think her name was Neite with long blond hair. Lovely girl. All the staff at the reception were really friendly and helpful. It just so happened that Neite was on duty when I was having a problem with my computer. I also rang reception for a fan and a kettle with tea making facilities and we had all of them within minutes. Really enjoyed our stay there,

            It is crazy a five star hotel with no air conditioner in there bed rooms. , It was very hot in the room as the weather was really hot during our stay in Cologne, The plus side was when we requested a fan we had one sent to the room within minutes. Think they also need to review there prices for breakfast. No breakfast is worth 56 euro for 2 people. I think if they had a more reasonable price, customers might think of having breakfast there.

            We found this hotel to be very modern in a good location. We were not pleased when we booked in as although 3 P.M. we had to wait until 4.30 to get into our room. The room although modern, we felt was of strange design, a very small bathroom, large lounge area, which we did not use and a not to spacious bedroom with the tiniest wardrobe. The staff were very friendly. The restaurant on the top of the tower was shut for a month, which had been the attraction to the hotel for us.

            As above, the wait to get into our room of over one and a half hours because it was not clean we did not find acceptable. The design of the rooms we did not feel was good, we had a small bathroom, considering this is an expensive luxury room we booked. We were also very disappointed that the restaurant at the top of the tower was closed for one month.

            Super design, central location, excellent restaurant on both ground floor and top floor. Good service.

            Small things could be better: as an example only, on our first night, the towels were changed while we were having dinner (as we had driven from Munich, a shower and a change of clothes was needed) but when we did the same on our 2nd night (we had walked all over Koln that day in very humid weather), that did not happen. Other small things could have been improved - the hotel and its restaurants (which are both excellent) is not cheap. My wife loved it all!!

            I liked the different design of the hotel. We stayed at Junior suite, we got one at the 10th floor which has nice view. The good thing about this stay is that the WiFi was free for 6 hours. Although we used it for more than 6 hours, they did not charge us anything. The booking was also including Free soft drinks from the fridge at the room, which I thought that is really great. We also had a welcome cake and fruit from the hotel in our suite which is really cool touch:)). The only thing is that the ac was not working well, but we didnt; need it since the weather was very nice and breezy. I think for Mid summer, they might need to include split ac unit in each suite. I will stay again in the same hotel for my next visit.

            The price for the parking was alot, 25 Euro per night, I thought that was alot. Other than that, it was a perfect stay:))
