Had a 3 night stay here in December to use the hotel as a base to explore the amazing Cologne Christmas markets. The hotel is a short walk from the Hauptbahnhof and Cathedral (5 - 10 mins) in what seems to be a fairly quiet residential area. Walking back to the hotel late at night felt safe enough. The check...

We stayed here for 2 nights for the Christmas markets. The hotel was well furnished, friendly staff and great selection for breakfast. The rooms were much larger than expected and comfy beds. Overall, we were very pleased with this hotel and the price was very reasonable too. We would definitely recommend this hotel!

Good hotel and near the center of Koln. The room was very clean. The bathroom including the shower was modern. The Koln cathedral was nearby. The city is very German. The stores were not very special. Nightlife was perfect and there were many good restaurants. Very Nice to discover the city by bike.

Very happy with my recent 3 night stay at the Hotel Santo. It was modern, clean and only a short 10 minute walk from the train station and cathedral. Breakfast offered a nice variety and all the staff were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend choosing Hotel Santo.

LOCATION: Hotel Santo is located in a quiet area, about 10 minutes walking distance from Cologne's main train station and a little outside the old town. The area seemed more residential and while not particularly vibrant, it did seem safe. If you cross Turiner Str., the major street near the hotel, you can find a variety of restaurants and bars....

This week I retuned to another 4 days in Cologne and I chose the Hotel Santo. Perfect as in 2013. The breakfast complete and with...

We checked in quickly. Hotel Santo is about 10 minutes walk from Köln Hbf in a very residential area. Although it was the end September it was still very warm and we were told that rooms on first floor didn't have aircon. However it was noisy if the windows were open as we were above the internal courtyard which opened...

Well designed and well kept, from the smart wrap-around glass exterior to the clean, pleasant and comfortable bedrooms. The staff are friendly, helpful and tend to your every need including (in my case) bringing an iron and board to the room at short notice and providing a tube of toothpaste. Good breakfast with sausage, bacon, fried egg, fish of many...
