We enjoyed a lovely stay in Cologne. Hotel staff very friendly and spoke perfect English. Shared local knowledge with us. Good breakfast if a little overpriced. Very quiet room with a view towards the Rhine.

Stayed here for business and found that it was perfect. Usually wouldn't stay at a typical business hotel but this had just enough contemporary flair without trying too hard and still fully functional and modern for business.

I spent a month in this hotel and it was very good from the beginning ( rooms are large and modern). The mini bar was free of charge and the breakfast proposed many things to try. It was by far the best Novotel I ever tried.

Reviewed 30 January 2017 via mobile

Personnel was quite arrogant and not helpful. The reception and bar area was ok with plentey o stuff for kids. Room was small, bathroom ok but not more, terrible view. Within walking distance from interesting places. Great to have the Chrismass market on the riverbank. A few tears ago, this was a lot better.

Stayed here three days while working in Cologne this week. There isn't much to be said because Novotel do it all so well, it's certainly my hotel group of choice, in my experience they've got the right culture inbred into their staff and like many other visits it's a pleasure to be here.

“Best rooms would have a river view, although this is not a must - not that much to enjoy viewing.”

“River view rooms can be a bit noisy if you open windows due to main road. The rooms facing the back also seemed to be roomier.”
