Barcelo Cologne City Center: Contemporary Comfort in the Heart of Cologne

Ideal for Tourists and Business Travelers

Located in historic New Town, the Barcelo Cologne City Center is a luxury hotel offering 301 rooms and a host of amenities, like free Wi-Fi, a multilingual staff, a 24-hour front desk, complimentary newspapers, and a full-service restaurant. After working out at the on-site fitness center, guests can relax in a sauna or enjoy a drink at the hotel bar. A 24-hour business center and meeting facilities make this a good choice for conferences and business travelers. Dry cleaning and laundry facilities are also available.

Lots of Local Dining Options

The hotel is a few miles from the Cologne Bonn Airport, and valet parking is available for an additional charge. Both metro and train stations are just a short walk away, making near and far-flung explorations a cinch. Nearby, you'll find lots of local restaurants to fuel those explorations. Try the Brauhaus Putz for traditional German fare or Madame Thy for Asian cuisine. Feel like a burger? Hit up Beef Brothers, located a little to the northwest of the hotel.

Art for All Tastes

Cologne offers plenty of places to explore, and the Barcelo Cologne City Center's central location is ideal for seeing the sights. Start with the ninth century Basilika St. Aposteln church, one of a dozen Romanesque churches in the city and a prime example of early German architecture. If you like modern art, be sure to visit Museum Ludwig, with works from Warhol, Dali, and many more. Wind up your day with a trip to the beer garden in the People's Garden, located in one of the city's oldest and most historic sections.

Designed for Comfort

Rooms are comfortable and spacious, with private bathrooms complete with complimentary toiletries, 24-hour room service, complimentary bottled water, cable TV, and free local calls. Each room features coffeemakers, hair dryers, minibars, and irons and ironing boards, and hypoallergenic bedding is available upon request. Adjoining rooms and rollaway beds are also available for larger groups or families.

The Bottom Line

The Barcelo Cologne City Center is a good value for families, couples, and singles who want a convenient location for exploring. Located outside the busier historic center, the hotel offers quieter, less hectic surroundings than those located closer to the river and provides a good home base for visiting the city's historic Weinachtsmarkt, or Christmas Market. Pets are allowed.
