Pros: This hotel is amazing! Not only is it in a great location but the staff and facility is superb. We arrived at the hotel at 3:30pm and our rooms weren't ready. To make up for it we were upgraded to a suite. You can see the cathedral out of your bedroom window which is fantastic!
I would definitely stay here again.
Pros: The Excelsior Hotel Ernst is a superb hotel which I recommend highly. The ambience, room size, location and the quality of the staff were all wonderful and the free mini-bar was an extra treat.
Cons: The only annoyance was that despite my contract promising free wired and wireless internet access, this apparently only applied to phone and tablet and not to laptops. Wifi for laptops costs €22 per day which is excessive. Last time I stayed they gave me a voucher for the laptop. This time not. Inconsistent - but a small price to stay in a nice hotel.
Excelsior Hotel Ernst stands in the magnificent shadow of world-famous Cologne Cathedral. Köln Station is a 5-minute walk away, and it's also a short stroll to the banks of the River Rhine, the city's ancient Roman Praetorium, and the superb modern art collection at Museum Ludwig.
Located in Ehrenfeld, this hotel is within 2 mi (3 km) of Cologne Carnival Museum, Volkstheater Millowitsch, and Rhein Energie Stadium. Wallraf-Richartz-Museum and Cologne Cathedral are also within 3 mi (5 km).
Cons: Room was old and dated, beds were dated, it appeared to be a former smoking room
Pros: Great view of the cathedral - best in Cologne (I've traveled to Cologne many times)
Cons: At first gave us a Rhine view room with a terrace overhang above us that cut off half the cathedral view. They were happy to move us a floor up, but that should have been clarified in the reservation
Pros: The breakfast was really good
Cons: The whole hotel needs a facelift. I think the time with dark wood is over an also the rooms need a facelift too
Pros: Wonderful attentive staff without being intrusive. Perfect location for sight seeing/shopping. Excellent outdoor informal riverside restaurant - open when the weather is clement. Superb spa. Classy breakfast.
Cons: Nothing to criticise. Regrettably the normal room rate will be beyond the budgets of most people though.
Pros: Location, front desk staff, concierge, great breakfast, room size, hotel layout
Cons: beer garden with self service and impolite staff: this does not fit into a five star hotel
Modern, 306 room hotel, located directly on river Rhine in Cologne-Deutz, offering a spectacular view of the famous Gothic Cathedral of Cologne and the old city. The hotel features Regency Club, 2 restaurants, 2 lounges and bars, a health club, indoor swimming pool and extensive meeting facilities. Many of the spacious guest rooms overlook the Rhine, Cathedral and the old city. Opened May 1988. The hotel has 6 floors.
Cons: The fact that I had to pay an extra 7 euros for a "city tax" in Cologne that was not advertised on this website or mentioned at all when we checked in the hotel.
That needs to be addressed by either this site or the hotel.

Pros: I loved the location and the cocktail bar. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Some were quite funny. We got a great price for a great hotel, but I'd happily pay more (if I had to) to stay there again.
Cons: I didn't get to use the spa facilities as there was no information in the room as to where it was or what facilities it had. I didn't see any room service info until the last day - a shame as I would definitely have had my breakfast in bed - expensive though at £30 a pop.
They need to include an obvious "cheat sheet" that's visible to see as to services the hotel offers. All they had was a book showing the international locations of other Dorint hotels.
Located near restaurant-filled Heumarkt Square in downtown Cologne, this contemporary hotel is close to the subway and an 8-minute walk from the train station. Guests can walk 10 minutes to admire the city’s cathedral, or view the works of Picasso, Warhol, and other modern masters at Museum Ludwig.
Pros: The suite was perfect for travelling with a toddler. The hotel was a nice walking distance from the city center and the Christmas markets.
