Well, look no further — using Hipmunk’s magical “ecstasy” filter we’ve compiled a list of the best hotels in Cologne based on their merits of price, location, and star reviews. Are you ready?
Hotel An der Philharmonie
Flop onto the pillowtop mattress and sink into a deep and relaxing sigh of relief — you’re at the Hotel An der Philharmonie where everything is wonderful. Right outside your door is the beautiful, proud Cologne Cathedral as well as the city center. Cologne’s heart is quite literally at your fingertips for the low cost of $92 per night. When you factor in the room size, comfort, and luxury, it’s no wonder you’re feeling ecstatic!
Home Away from Home
The Hotel am Augustinerplatz is a great place to nest yourself for your upcoming Cologne trip. They offer a 24-hour roundtrip airport shuttle service, provide parking during your stay, and will even let you leave your car past check-out (space willing), plus their laundry service is reported to be fast and efficient. Basically, it’s like coming to stay at your mother’s house without the embarrassing childhood photos lying around. Choose this Cologne hotel if you want a no-frills but solid stay in the heart of the city.
Best of Both Worlds
NH Köln Mediapark is a fresh breath of air — literally — as it’s situated in the greenbelt area of the city. You’re surrounded by nature and lush, verdant beauty outside, with all the comforts of home inside. The 20-minute walk to the Cathedral is pleasant and keeps you entertained as you walk among tall towers, a lake, and the tree-lined streets. This is also a great way to burn off the delicious breakfast which is served on-site in the Concerto Restaurant. If that’s not enough for you, grab a workout in the 24-hour fitness center which guests also have access to. Of course, the hotel provides free Wi-Fi to keep you connected and ready to plan out your trip. The big surprise? Rooms start at $79 per night!
Live It Up at the Maritim Hotel Köln
Have you been dreaming of a seven-story hotel with a glass-topped commercial center where you can shop, play games, and hang out with your friends? Well, now your dreams can come true at the Maritim Hotel Köln, right alongside the River Rhine. This lush hotel offers everything your heart could desire from in-room massages, views of the Rhine, sitting salons in your guest room, and babysitting services, to make it feel like a second honeymoon for traveling families. On the off-chance you’re traveling with pets, you’re going to be even more ecstatic to learn that your furry friends are part of the family at this wonderful establishment.
Well, is your ecstasy meter going to overload? There’s so many great hotels in Cologne it’s hard to choose, but any off this narrow list will ensure you have a great stay now and wonderful memories of the city forever.
