This small hotel is located within a five minute walk from the main train station in Cologne. The building is old and charming, and the interior of the hotel and the rooms have been fully modernized. It is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a small, convenient, clean, modern, and safely located hotel in the downtown...

Hotel looked ok from outside & reception but opened door to room and thought I was in a basic hostel. The single room was the size of a cupboard, very grim with no facilities (eg hairdryer, safe etc). The bed seemed smaller than a single and was not even made up, just a bit of bedding dumped in a pile...

For the room rate I paid, the room is good value. Relatively comfortable with decent toiletries. Room amenity and service were poor. In the first room I was allocated, the safe wouldn't work. After talking to the reception, they said they could move me to another room. After 1 hour waiting, heard nothing. I chased the reception and finally got...

I booked this hotel from Michelin guide, but now I'm wondering what is criteria to get listed in their guide? Room was tiny,with outdated design but very clean. Night stand with built in radio. Awful pillow. Only TV was new. Outdated bathroom with strange wooden shelf and paper holder. Noisy fan. Shower difficult to adjust temperature. No safe, no minibar....

I have just checked out of the Hotel Harmonie and would never return. My room was the size of a cupboard, with absolutely no facilities at all - no hairdryer, drinks facilities, air-conditioning, minibar etc - which, for 99 euros a night, was not acceptable. Furthermore, when requested to leave my towels on the floor if I wanted them replaced,...

Stayed at this hotel while combining business with a trip to the Christmas Markets. The hotel is small and chic. Some of the rooms are a bit small, but we were given a deluxe (still quite small) which was very nice. Easy walking distance from the station, Dom and Altstadt. Staff helpful rather than friendly. Don't miss the Roman museum...

After a rustic hotel in a small Rhine River Valley town we arrived in Cologne and the Harmonie. The hotel is modern, clean, chic with a great central location near old town.

Nothing much more to add really.... Decent hotel not far from the station and Dom. Stayed in several central area Cologne hotels and this is the best of the bunch. Recommended.

After miserable stay at another hotel (more like hostel) which was much closer to train station, walked around and found this hotel. For the price and the rooms we got (doubles/twins) this was a great find. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Breakfast is included and is fantastic. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Classic Hotel Harmonie, Cologne Cologne lives. Cologne pulsates. Cologne is history, present and future. Can you imagine something better than to delve into this magnificent city, to see, to feel, to enjoy it? At Classic Hotel Harmonie you can do exactly that - and much more. Within the walls of a former monastery you will spend unforgettable days, feel the spirit of this city and let your spirits flow. Located in a peaceful side street in the heart of the city, the hotel is a haven of rest and relaxation. With our excellent service full of passion and the outstanding atmosphere of this unique setting you will feel absolutely comfortable, we guarantee. Enjoy the harmony. At Classic Hotel Harmonie. The Convent Today The former Ursuline convent opposite the Romanesque Ursulakirche today gleams in new splendor: With its black slate gables and the bright facade, the Classic Hotel Harmonie is a real gem among historic buildings. And there is a reason for carrying "harmony" in its name. The ancient walls block from the hustle and bustle of city life and let you immerse in a world of peace and tranquility. So everything is in line in our hotel - location, service, design as well as ambiance. Through our stylish lobby you will reach our exquisite restaurant and bar as well as our beautiful rooms. Our Mediterranean garden invites the guests to stay and relax and our spacious roof-deck offers a stunning view over the town with the Cologne Cathedral and the Ursula's Church. Of course you can also use high-speed Wi-Fi and the specially arranged meeting room. In the Heart of the City Cologne has so many attractions to offer: from ancient monuments such as the Cologne Cathedral, the Old Town with its cute little shopping streets and interesting museums to the hot spots of nightlife and the stunning panorama of the Rhine. And best of all - these attractions are within walking distance from our Classic Hotel Harmonie. You can even reach the famous Cologne Trade Fair in about 20 minutes by foot and by the way enjoy the fabulous view over the Rhine. The main railway station is only a stone's throw away from the hotel, so that the ride to and from the Cologne-Bonn airport by public transport takes only a little more than a quarter of an hour. By car, the distance of 18 kilometers neither is a problem because the nearby motorway offers quick and easy access for our motorized guests. ... more   less

“Do not *EVER* prepay for this hotel, so you at least have the option of turning around after you come and see the room for yourself.”
  • Walls are all scratched.
  • Paint is breaking off, literally.  Must be decades old.
  • Showers are rusty.  On the upside, no significant mold growth.
