Top tips for finding the perfect Cologne hotel
- Cologne is renowned for its vast Gothic cathedral and sweeping riverside position. If you would like to be within walking distance of the main tourist sites, consider a hotel near the Cathedral in the old town, such as the boutique The Qvest Hideaway or the Stern am Rathaus hotel, so you can easily stroll from place to place.
- If you have an early or late flight, you may prefer to stay near to the airport. There are several good hotels in the vicinity of Cologne Bonn Airport and some also offer a free shuttle, including the Leonardo Hotel Köln Bonn Airport.
- If you have tickets for a concert, you can find accommodation conveniently placed near Lanxess Arena, such as the Hotel Stadtpalais or Hotel Alt Deutz City.
- No visit to Cologne would be the same without a visit to the city’s boisterous beer halls. These traditional beer halls, such as the Früh am Dom, can be found throughout the city centre. There are many hotels in this area, including the Eden Hotel Früh am Dom, which will help make your walk home easy.
- Cologne’s carnival season is often referred to as the city’s fifth season, starting in November and reaching its peak between Weiberfastnacht (Shrove Thursday) and Rosenmontag (Carnival Monday). During this time, the city receives a high influx of visitors, so it’s a good idea to book in advance. Stay in the city centre to revel with the locals – and don’t forget your costume! Hotels like Hotel am Chlodwigplatz and Hopper Hotel St Josef will put you at the heart of the event.
- If you are travelling to Cologne on business, you may want to be based near to the Koelnmesse international trade fair and exhibition centre. There are several hotels in this area, including the Radisson Blu Hotel and the Ibis Köln Messe.
