This place is pretty decent to stay at! It's not too far from things, and they have free computers downstairs to get online with. Wish there was free wifi but that doesn't seem to be so common here in Koln.
This Novotel is a decent hotel at the southern fringe of Cologne's city center. The location near the Rhine boardwalk is a plus, but there are not too many shops and restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. Rooms in general are not bad, but slightly below 4-star level in my view. They are relatively small and the furniture is somewhat generic. Rooms do come with comfortable beds and air-conditioning, however. In-room wi-fi was free, but unreliable (connection kept on breaking down). Breakfast is on the expensive side at 17 Euros as of October 2013. What sets this hotel apart is the gym area on the sixth floor overlooking the Rhine (too bad it closes at 11pm). Staff was friendly and helpful.
Rooms spacious with a view of the river (just with the new buildings). Possibly need a bit of a touch up now on paint work, but always a restful night's sleep. Huge breakfast buffet served til 1pm on Sundays, plus check out extended to 4pm - very civilized!
The Novotel hotel in Cologne is a very modern, clean well thought of place. , From the secure parking in the basement the clean lifts up to a very well presented reception area with very well spoken staff that are very helpful I must add, to the very stylish restaurant / bar that stays open very late (I think it was about 2 in the morning when we left). The rooms do not disappoint either with everything there that you may need from full WiFi to direct dial phone and a courteous mini bar as well. If only all business travel was this rewarding
