Minutes from Hohe Straße and Schildergasse, the Motel One Koln Waidmarkt offers modern, three star accommodations with free Wi-Fi.
Standard guest room amenities include a flat-screen television, plush beds with 100% Egyptian cotton linens, and a spa-inspired private bath with a Hansgrohe raindance fixture in the walk-in shower. Pets are welcome, subject to an additional nightly fee.
The Motel One Koln Waidmarkt welcomes travellers 24/7 in the stylish One Lounge, which also features a well stocked bar. Underground parking is available on site.
The daily continental breakfast buffet offers a wide variety of healthy and more decadent options. Guests can also satisfy their sugar cravings at Mr. Cake, an eight-minute walk.
The historic Old Town, Cologne Cathedral, and Fragrance Museum Farina-House are within walking distance. The Koelner Zoo is about 18 minutes away by car or public transport.
Guests generally describe the rooms as compact yet comfortably functional for a short stay, with stylish, modern decor, good soundproofing and reasonably stable free Wi-Fi. The value for money is widely considered "excellent," too.
You can get there from here...
Guests also like the hotel's location just outside the city centre: the historic old town and the cathedral are about ten minutes away on foot, and the Poststrasse U-Bahn/S-Bahn station is a five-minute walk, offering easy access to all the sights in Cologne as well as Bonn and Dusseldorf. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby, too.
Professional, cheerful staff at all hours...
Many guests are happy to report a warm welcome to Cologne, describing the staff as friendly, efficient, and helpful. The lobby also gets high marks for style, and night owls love that the bar is open 24-hours.
You might have to eat standing up...
Though guests generally describe the breakfast buffet as varied, delicious, and nicely presented, many go on to note that it too is served in the lounge, and seating is a frequently reported issue, with many of the tables too low to eat at comfortably.
Keeping it simple...
Some guests are disappointed to find the rooms lack items such as a kettle, telephone, and ironing board. The towels are on the small side, beds are on the firm side, and toiletries are limited to a shower gel/shampoo combination.
Last one into the parking garage...
Drivers note that the hotel's designated parking spaces are limited, and on occasion the public garage is also full.
