Stayed at Radisson Blu, Deutz, Köln for 2 nights for the Xmas markets. Although not central, Deutz is on the 'other' side of the river from the main town, there is a tram stop right opposite. Although a bit of a maze to negotiate the crossings to get there! Trams are frequent and being Germany, reliable and safe. 5 stops...

TL;DR: tried to book a hotel and spa package with various additional amenities on the Radisson Blu website, was charged accordingly, then told we'd only gotten a room--no spa, etc. Unhappy customers show staff glitch in website and they rectify, but only after almost 2 hrs of waiting, after an almost three hour drive. *** This hotel is a wonderful...

It is quite obvious from the way this hotel is run that owners/management realize that with their proximity to the Messe, that they have a captive audience, and they don't need to have high standards. All-in- all this isn't a bad hotel. Location for the conference center is excellent, the rooms and lobby are spacious, and the decor is interesting....

Can't really fault the hotel, it had blackout curtains for a good sleep, beds were comfortable and breakfast was excellent. My only dislike was having to shower in a bath. Would definately stay again :)

Yes, this is an expensive place to stay the night. It is also very efficient and luxurious. Spacious rooms, large reception hall, flawless WiFi everywhere: everything you'd expect from an upmarket hotel. Just one complaint: the shower was disappointing at best. Low water pressure, heavily fluctuating water temperature. And standing in a bathtub for a shower? Meh. Possibly the water...
