We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting Cologne and its Christmas markets. The location is perfect – you can walk to everywhere! It’s nice to be a bit further from the main road. Approaching the building will wow you. We had a beautiful room and one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept on. The free mini bar... More

Just home from a two night stay. Very friendly staff. Didn't dine there but rooms very comfortable, clean and well appointed. 1.4km from the cathedral. Hotel im a quiet area adjacent a massive pool complex. Views from ninth floor balcony which one can circle around are fabulous.

An absolutely beautiful hotel. We only stayed for 2 days, as it was a bit of a splurge for us. The staff were fantastic, very helpful, gave us maps and directions. Allowed us to leave our luggage after we had checked out, as we had a late flight. The room was huge. We were on the 9th floor, which has... More

Unique place to stay. Great architecture. Room was very hot - no air conditioning. Service was just ok - nothing special. When booking was made advised of the special celebration - nothing was mentioned of this which was a little disappointing for a hotel of this distinction.

This place was fabulous. It's a very unique hotel, and very nicely appointed. The staff is outstanding and very accommodating. We stayed on the eighth floor, which has a walkway around the exterior, and makes for beautiful views of the city.

We wanted to treat ourselves to an extraordinary hotel experience and quickly singled out Wassertürm and the junior suite. That was a mistake. Firstly, the junior suite was not as we thought on the top floors (as we thought being much more expensive than the ordinary rooms), but closer to the buildings around and thus having no view what so...

The building itself is really unique and interesting. We dined in the Michelin starred HImmel un Aed on the first night and really enjoyed the experience. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the views amazing and the atmosphere relaxed. We enjoyed all 6 courses in our menu.

As others have reported, a very unusual hotel that must have been great fun for the architect. But the unusual shape comes with a downside; for instance, the bathroom (in our junior suite no less) was uncomfortably small, and there was no individual air conditioning in the rooms (they provided a basic fan for the bedroom). The location is not... More
