Hotel Merlin was the perfect hotel for me. I came for a business conference in the Kolnmesse and stayed 3 nights there. It's only 6 minutes walk from there and 3 minutes walk to the train station. The staff were great, super kind and helpful. Lot of very good restaurants are next to the hotel. I very much recommend Hotel... More

Stayed at this hotel for business. What a lovely little find, great location for the Messe and also an easy walk across the Rhine to the cathedral (20mins). Very clean and comfortable, the owners made me feel very welcome. Recommend.

I have stayed at this hotel quite a few times when I attend a trade show in Koln. It's very close to the Messe fairgrounds and close to public transportation to quickly get to the town centre.The rooms are small, but efficient and clean. Breakfast is great, The owners are very nice and attentive. Highly recommended.

There was a large festival on that in Cologne and I was fortunate to get the last room available in the hotel (I made the reservation via phone and spoke to the owner directly). The owner pointed out to me that the only room left was a small... More

Looking at the hotel from the outside, nothing indicated what lies behind its walls. The building is just a plain box; nothing special. After crossing the entrance door I was warmly welcomed by the hotel owner, who was eager to give me any information about the hotel, the area, the places of interest, etc. The room was on the top...

First "Many thanks" to the hotel owners. They waited for us til late at night, because we landed at 1 o'clock a.m. Nice and comfortable rooms. Fresh and delicious food. Friendly atmosphere. Close to the fair and to the old town, near to the train station. Perfect location for business and leisure and at the same time very peaceful place.... More
