Historical Traveller Reviews of Hilton Cologne Hotel

Beautiful Luxury Hotel

from jeninbrighton
I've stayed in a lot of 5 star hotels, but this one is the best I've ever stayed in. The design of the place is just fantastic! No wonder the property has won loads of design awards. The service was great too, the staff at the desk were always willing to give us tips on where to go eat and drink, and what to do. The restaurant deserves a review on it's own. We ate dinner in the restaurant, free of charge as part of our room package. It was, to date, the most fantastic meal I have ever had in my life. No exageration. We couldn't even speak, the food was so mouthwatering. I would love to go back and stay at the Cologne Hilton again, but unfortunatley, as we were not very impressed with the city of Cologne itself (not much to do for tourists), we probably will not be going back. If I ever find myself on a business trip to Cologne though, I will insist on staying at the Hilton! Superb.

great staff, great location, beautiful rooms

from brunneng
I've stayed there once or twice a month all of 2006. The location - just around the corner from the main train station/cathedral but off traffic - is so good that I use the hotel for business trips anywhere in the area of +50 km. The staff is consistently friendly and attentive - highest level - as of my third stay the regulars know my name, the "breakfast" lady knows my room number without looking! Breakfast is the best I've known, even if you're used to Hilton breakfasts. The rooms are beautifully sober in the rare "asian" style - all integrated wooden furniture, shades of red, frosted glass. good beds, quiet rooms.. I sometimes add a private extra day to my business trips and go shopping or just relax.
The restaurant is good and decorates wonderfully, only the menu doesn't have many vegetarian options. Can't recommend room service though, that is somewhat lesser food.

WOW!

from Anjflyhigh
What can i say about this hotel!!! wow!! I booked this hotel thanks to this very website after i read several reviews on hotels in Cologne and i can tell everyone it lives up to its reviews on this website. The hotel is spotless!! its location is perfect for access to all of colognes hotspots, the dom is seconds away and the shopping is very close by. The hotel lives upto the Hilton brand and excels itself, the only let down was the Ice Bar, it looked brilliant on the website however its not that great and the bar is made out of ice, but not the whole thing, just a small slice of the bar and the only glasses that are made of ice are the shot glasses and not all as it was portrade on the website also drinks are expensive here, i had a cocktail in there and it was 9.90 euros which was expensive as the same cocktail in a bar right by the river were only 6 euros!! Apart from the Ice bar the hotel itself is fantastic, we stayed 3 nights between the 25th and 28th of August 2006 as a city break away and when we go back to the city it is deffinatly the place we will be staying. The staff excel themselves with service and helpful local knowledge and the breakfast is amazing, its a massive buffet with so much choice i had a different breakfast each morning it would suit all tastes as it allows you to experiance german breakfast but also aspects of our usual breakfast for those not wanting to try out the german side of life. This hotel is a fantastic place to stay, book online via hiltons own website and get the fab internet rates that allow you to upgrade your room to a larger room for the same price as the smaller rooms as long as you pay for it at the time of booking, and the rooms are worth every penny. Comfy room, clean stylish bathroom with plenty of towels and bathrobe... perfect! Even the spa and gym had me interested and i hate gyms!! For those wanting to experiance this City in style we strongly recommend the Cologne Hilton as the place to base your stay, its fantastic and a place i want to go back to already!! Hope you enjoy this city and this fantastic hotel as much as i did, i'll definatly be back for more!

Perfect!

from troset2005
It was one of the nicest Hilton hotels Ive ever been

Its very close to all amnesties of old koln city center
and the room size is quite unusually big for that part of city
very clean and in overall the Hotel is very very comfortable

If you ask me going to koln I can not advice you a better
place except Hilton colone...

Excellent!

from jetset1975
My partner and I stayed at the Hilton for just one night and found it to be excellent. The first tip I would give anyone coming here and hiring a car would be to get one with sat-nav, as Cologne isn't a city you want to be lost in as Germans drive rather fast and a little aggressively. Fortunately our BMW 320 took us from the airport to the front door of the Hilton in no time.

The concierge was immensely helpful and efficient, whisking our car off to the underground car park after helping us with our luggage up to our room. The accommodation itself was impressive, with modern wooden flooring, big comfortable bed and decent sized Loewe TV, with a decent selection of channels in German, English, French and Italian. The view from the room to the cathedral was also very impressive.

We decided to stay at the hotel for dinner and found the selection in the Konrad restaurant to be somewhat limited, but the friendly and efficient staff made up for the disappointing menu. The food itself was fine.

Breakfast was good, and although my eggs took a little while to arrive from the egg station there was none of the huge queues or chaos you often get in hotel breakfast rooms.

Check out was again painless, with the concierge fetching our car back. I'd certainly visit this hotel again.

Excellent hotel - highly recommended

from richardlondon
This is an excellent hotel. We were upgraded to a very large deluxe room and were treated (by surprise!) to chocolate coated strawberries during our weekend stay :-)

The buffet style breakfast is truly excellent with a very broad choice to suit all tastes. Unlike many hotels the breakfast area was constantly restocked and made tidy.

Staff at the reception were constantly friendly and extremely helpful.


** This Hilton has got it just right - clearly they have excellent management.**

Highly recommended!

Perfect location, top class hotel

from reykvikingur
When we arrived at the train station in Cologne, we were surprised to see that our hotel was not only within walking distance, but only a 2 minute walk from the station and thereby only a 2 minute walk from the downtown center of Cologne, i.e. the famous Cathedral and the High Street shopping area. So the location was absolutely wonderful, unbeatable. The hotel staff was also very friendly and always ready to assist us, and the hotel itself very modern and of a superior Hilton class. Would definetly recommend this to anyone travelling to Cologne.

Absolutely high quality

from flyingdutchmannl
Just returned from this fantastic hotel. This is a new high quality Hilton and designed according their latest standards, which means superb. As being a Gold member of Hilton I was upgraded to a Deluxe room. This room was spacious. Very modern design with wooden floors,something I really appreciate (I hate those dirty carpets in hotel rooms). Bathroom was equipped with a bath and a seperate shower. Unfortunately they used very simple tiles in the bathroom, which makes the bathroom looking a bit standard.
There is a mini bar in the room, but maybe the best: Not a standard coffee machine, but an expresso machine! The room is absolutely quit: The hotel was fully booked, but I heard absolutely nothing in my room.
The food in the Konrad restaurant was good, not superb. Breakfast however was great: I never had the choice of so many different yoghurts before.
Location is great, just a few minutes walk from Central Station. The hotel is in the former post office of Cologne.
The staff is great, very friendly and helpfull.
Conclusion: Greta hotel, great rooms, great location, great staff: Absolutely a great place to stay when you are in Cologne.

No better place in Cologne

from LFC147
Stayed at Hilton just before Xmas and couldnt fault it one bit. Location, rooms, service etc were excellent.
The location could not be better. As you exit the Main train station the Dom Cathedral is on your left and virtually just up the road on your right is the Hilton.
From the moment we entered we were made to feel at home. Everyone was very courteous and polite. Our room was very spacious and very modern with everything a first class Hotel provides.
Our deal included Breakfast which was plentiful and filling. The Hotel also has a nice bar area just by the reception which has a door leading to the Ice Bar. Perfect to drop in on the way out or to stop off for a nightcap.
We went for the Xmas markets and the main one is just behind the Dom with a few more not too far away. The main shopping street is also located by the Dom and both are close enough to the Hotel to pop back in to get a warm or drop your shopping off.
We were tossing up between the Radisson and the Hilton but upon seeing the Radisson in the distance over the Rhine we were more than happy with our choice and could not fault the Hilton in any way.
If you want a top notch, centrally located Hotel in Cologne this is the one.

Exceptional service and food

from A TripAdvisor Member
My stay at the Cologne Hilton was in the last week in January 2006. On both Business and pleasure.

LOCATION:
You couldn't ask for a better location. 2 blocks from the train station, 2 blocks from the DOM (Dome) Cathedral and about three blocks from the regular shopping area. Taxis line up right outside the front door.

ACCOMODATIONS:
The hotel theme is contemporary and immaculate. If you need anything just ask and they will attend to it immediately.

SERVICE:
Service for me was excellent in fact "over the top". If you need anything at all ask for "Eva" at the front desk. This young lady is everything you would want as a concierge, but she's just at the front desk. I went to Paris for the day by train (3 1/2 hours through the mountains) and she went to the train station to get me my tickets. I never asked and she insisted and did so...absolutely incredible service.

FOOD:
The buffet breakfast as stated in the previous reviews is gargantuan. If you're an American and don't rave about the breakfast, there's probably something wrong with you. Included free for Gold and Diamond members.

RESTAURANTS:
The restaurants around the cathedral are good but typical tourist traps, while the local restaurants are simply great. I asked the taxi drivers for some recommendations and they were right on point.

The city of Cologne makes only one kind of beer throughout the entire city. No matter where you go, this is the beer you'll get and it's delicious.

COLOGNE PEOPLE:
Every city should have people like the people in Cologne. They are extremely friendly and eager to help yu no matter what. They consider themselves very different from the typical German and are so proud of their city.

It was my first time in Cologne and it left me with a very nice feel. I look forward to going back

Top Local Tips for Cologne

Great Restaurant right by Dom Go to Fruh...for good beer and food..it is right behind the Dom Hotel

Getting to the hotel Take the S-band train #13 to get to/from the airport which is only a 15 minute ride. Then walk 200 meters to the hotel. The train station has lots of stores & a large variety of places to eat anytime of day.

Take the train You should as often as you can travel by train in Cologne, take a tour to Bonn it is absolutely fabulous and really easy.
