Reviewed 19 october, 2021

I stayed apparently in a renovated room for a short night. Checked in at 2300 and checked out at 0630. I found the room NOT being in a good shape. Slightly run down, tiny shower, no single usage bathgels (in covid times), slight mold in the shower and incredible dirty air filters (see picture). I dont want to know how it looks behind these walls if the guest can already see that….. The beds are far from being comfortable (at least my subjective feeling) I am not a regular Cologne guest for the moment but certainly will not come back to this hotel. Way for improvement

Fantastic property with plenty heritage, great central location with Dom view and service minded, proactive and friendly staff. Breakfast buffet with huge selection of high quality food. We are already looking forward to return during our next trip.

St Bernhard of Clairvaux is alive!

Reviewed 3 september, 2021

St Bernhard was, as you all know, a Cistercian monk canonized as far back as 1174. A mystic and founder of the Abbey of Clairvaux, this notable human has been reincarnated at the Excelsior Hotel, Cologne. Crowds run to touch the hem of his garment, veterans kiss his shadow, the unfortunates hold out their palms in supplication. 'He lives! He lives!' Here is a 21st century Saint, a man who goes beyond the role of mere Human and transmogrifies into a living, canonized mystic. This gentleman, and his array of Lesser Saints is one of the reasons I choose to stay in this hotel. The service is spectacular. The rooms are marvellous too though there is one word of warning. I always pay the modest upgrade to a suite because, on the one night I stayed in a simple room, I found it a little threadbare. Go large! This is one of my favourite hotels in the world. It's a religious experience.

Back from the Dead

Reviewed 9 november, 2020

I used to write copious, and secretly rather witty, reviews for this site which, erroneously I bet, then claimed I had been read by over 50,000 people. I am returning to the reviewing fray in a bid to get my readership up by one because, if nothing else, Joe Public must be made aware of hotels like the Excelsior. The derivation of the name is not, as some might suppose, a computer application of some use, but a verb, ‘excel’, to be damn good at something and the Excelsior does exactly what it says on the rather glamorous 1930’s entrance. It excels. It is damn good at everything. Aside from a slight misunderstanding over breakfast charges, the guilty party may or may not be another site or my own latent stupidity but I would have to describe this as one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. It flitted that lovely medium between modern and art modern, if you get my drift? In other words, it wasn’t some frightfully sterile new hotel with a ‘brand’ and all the charm of a Klu Klux Klan memorial party, it was a traditional hotel, one with charm and history but in the Rolls Royce category of comfort. The staff were, quite frankly, spectacular and must have been to the Franz Beckenbauer school of management because they were a team, pulling together for the general pleasure of the three guests. This in turn gives me a chance to thank and congratulate them personally. Ave! Salute! Thanks.
