I am very disappointed by their response for my cancellation request after the Cologne Fair has been cancelled. I have cancelled many of my other reservation for Tokyo, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Doha, etc. although some of these reservation were Non or partially refundable too but this hotel didn't accept to pay back the money that they had already charged to me. I really suggest to you all that if you have a second choice, do choose that second one...
A Koln Hotel with Pro's and Con's which therefore equals Average overall.

I stayed 3 nights at the "Insel Hotel" whilst in town for a trade show at the Congress Centrum-Nord... which is an easy 8 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is conveniently close to the DB Koln Messe / Deutz train station which gives easy access to Cologne/Bonn Airport... Just a short €2.90 train ride away. If you want to walk to the Cathedral this is possible but takes about 20 minutes. I stay in a lot of Hotels the world over on my business travels and so have plenty of hotels to make comparisons against. To me there were two main Con's with the Insel Hotel. Firstly my requested 'double' bed was two singles pushed together and they were not that comfortable as too soft for me. Secondly the lighting level in the room was very poor. No overhead lights and the bedside lights were not bright either. What was very good about the Hotel was the amazing breakfast buffet, it really was great. There are a couple of great German restaurants within a short walk of the Insel Hotel (See my other reviews), a bar next door an a Kiosk Shop a 1 minute walk around the corner. I think for the standard of the room, and it being 3 Star, the price was quite high at €180 per night for 1 person. In summary it was okay but I'd probably not stay here again.
Nice hotel in excellent location but no AC in our room

Good hotel in Cologne and very well located. Nearby the fairgrounds and Messe-train station. City center in walking distance. Very cleand and confortable but we had terrible night due to hot temperature in the room. We are in first floor in front of tram station and high traffic street so if we opened the window the noise was terrible. We were in June. It could be a 5 star review in we were in winter... Let me finish with some good news: Excellent breakfast and staff.
Great for a business trip

Stayed at Insel for the first time in Cologne whilst there to attend an exhibition at the nearby Koelenmesse. The location is ideal considering it was winter. A short 5 minute walk put me in the venue. Only breakfast available which was excellent. But for other meals there were several great little restaurants just around the corner. Room was basic and comfortable. Not luxury but workable. Staff was caring and personable. A workable situation for work!
Avg hotel, not value for money

Stayed on buisness trip. normal room size, no toiletries are provided and breakfast menus are very limited. Comparing other hotels, its very expensive. Paid 115 euro, don't know, what is there to charge this much...?
