We stayed with 4 adults and 2 kids one night in Matamba, two days in Phantasialand and had dinner and breakfast in Restaurant Zambesi. We had a perfect time and all staff members did a great job. The atmosphere in the hotel was just great. The rooms are very nice and the shower was the best ever in a hotel....

Stayed in Cologne but expo had really pushed the prices up for inner city. As I had a car I went for here because the review rating was good and only 20 mins drive. I hadn't really thought it would be a theme park! It is dark in winter - not the most obvious place to find - the car...

It was a strange expérience to use such a holiday hotel for a business conference. Personel is charming, the decor is very african style and there is a small camp style bedroom in the rooms for kids. Floor would need a bit of repainting, but it's surely not the kind of place you would look down anyway. All in all,...

If you go by train there is a good connection by shuttle bus to the hotel, it stop only in Bruhl Mitte. If the hotel is open then the shuttle busses are going. The public transport site VRS can show different information ( PHL = Phantasialand busses ). Tickets you can buy directly at bus ( includes return ). The...

I'll start with the good points The 3 star hotel is really well done in terms of creating an African theme from its masks, animal murals, indoor jungle gym and bedroom decor. Breakfast has a good selection better than most in its class; the hotel bar has a wide range of drinks plus the two kids play areas are close...

We stayed for 3 nights at the hotel Matamba and I have to say we were impressed. First the positives, The room was spacious and clean and slept 6 of us, the African decor around the hotel was fabulous I would say better than the animal kingdom lodge at Disney which is very similar. The jungle assault course on the...

Perfect hotel, great breakfasts, very clean and big rooms, easy access into Phantasialand. Very nice interior design (Africa style), helpful staff, comfortable parking, fast check-in/out. We would prefer in-room wifi of course! Be aware of restautants capacity! It looks like there is more guests than places in restaurants. We did not book restaurant in advance - no chance to have...

Extremely convenient for visiting the park. Make sure you check the combo deals that include park tickets - they make the price much more attractive. The rooms are nice, clean and have great noise isolation - very important when people are screaming on a roller coaster just 100m from your window. The food in the restaurants is ok, but not...
