Cool Hotel right next to the conference centre
Reviewed 1 day ago

Enjoyed my stay here, large room with Nespresso machine. Very hospitable staff.
Modern foyer with a nice bar. Easy access to the airport. Reception provided a free room upgrade which was most appreciated.

Really poor concierge service
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I’ve stayed here many times at great expense to my work due to its close proximity to the conference centre and I’m yet to have a good check in or concierge experience. Once you get their attention they are very good but you have to wait forever and they are never aware of who is waiting meaning quite often other guests are able to jump the line.

Not what I’d expect for such an expensive hotel!

Ideal location right by city centre

Spent three nights here, Cologne is a magnificent city, very pretty architecture. The hotel area is very quiet, although it is right over the bridge directly next to the city centre, and only 2-3 minutes from the tram. Really nice and friendly staff, communicated well with us, they were very professional and willing to do their best. Room was spotless as was bathroom, comfortable, and big. Would stay again.

Comfortable hotel and great bar

...this was not my first option, but if you have the handball world cup and a couple of fairs in Cologne it is difficult to get an ok hotel for under 200 Euro. The Radisson Blu did not disappoint, good sized rooms in modern decor and an awesome bar. Why only 4 points? The check-in procedure was "strenuous"....a super long line, so instead of waiting for what seemed to last over 30 min, we headed for the bar and enjoyed very nice mojitos. Sleep quality was very good once you found all the light switches...

Dissapointing compared to visits in the past.

Staff in general friendly and willing to help. We had a dissapointing visit at restaurant Paparazzi, which is very expensive. Quality of food is good but for the rest went everything wrong. Breakfast of good quality but organisation of it should be better.
