The room was very old fashioned but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included but we unfortunately missed it as we were at a beer festival the evening before. It was a little pricey for what it was, however, the location was absolutely amazing! 5-10 minutes from the central station and cathedral/Rhine. It was also in the heart of the...

We visited Cologne last week to see the Christmas markets and we booked this hotel based purely on location & price. I had concerns about the hotel from looking at previous reviews, but since we just wanted somewhere central to come back to for one night we decided to go ahead and book. The outside of the hotel isn't much...

We only stayed in the hotel for one night, but it was perfect. The staff were happy and helpful and gave us all the information we needed and the rooms were fully functional with comfortable beds. The hotel is within walking distance to a wide range of facilities including the Xmas markets, shopping, restaurants and the night life. Will definitely...

I have been here once in September for business. It is fairly close to centre and the market and maybe even good value for money if you are a German or Nothern European. Breakfast was ok, WiFi w/ extra charge but the smell from the carpet was indescribable!

When Cologne is very busy you may need to pay a lot, or lower your standards, to get somewhere central - which the Arde certainly is - although the price may not reduce much. But try not to go this far down. Supposedly a 2-star, the only almost-good things in the Arde were the breakfast and Wi-Fi. My room was...

The receptionist on duty 8th November evening / 9th November morning deserves the utmost praise, she was wonderful. The location was so central once you found the hotel (2 to 3 minutes walk from the Dom). The breakfast was adequate. The room would be a little cramped for some people but so what. I would recommend that clear directions on...

I would recommend the Hotel Arde as a place to stay when in Cologne. When there (I stayed late June 2014 for four nights), the room had good bed linen and a very comfortable bed. It was a very pleasant room to stay in. I have no complaints at all. The breakfast room is very good. There are plenty and...
