I have stayed at this hotel several times before. I did so this time after visiting an exhibition in Dortmund. I use IHG all the time for hotels and I have yet to be really disappointed by one. I was
warmly greeted as a Platinum Elite member and offered the choice of extra points or a drink in the bar. After a long day on my feet I went for the drink and enjoyed a very nice large beer. The room was, as usual, clean and comfortable. The only let down was the TV system which was said to have many many channels according to the card in the room but I could only get 6 or so and all in German. Not much use to an English guest.
Breakfast was the usual continental choices with toast and boiled eggs available as well. I enjoyed a mix of cereals and then fresh rolls and cheese and ham. Excellent coffee washed it all down. Although I had agreed a late check out at 13.00, when I checked in the night before, I eventually decided to do a little quick sightseeing before my flight back in the afternoon.
The hotel is easy to find and as a bonus, if you have a rental car, there is a garage right next door so you can fill up.
I am happy to recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to stay in the Cologne/Bonn area. [Less]
