Superior room




Stay in a modern, architecturally striking hotel on the banks of the Rhine, with an indoor pool and wellness facilities - breakfast and Christmas market dates included

With views of the city’s skyline-piercing cathedral to one side and the lovely river Rhine to the other, the mighty Maritim Hotel Köln sports an unbeatable location, a short stroll from the old town - or Altstadt - and its abundance of history and beer halls.

The hotel's crowning feature, a large glass atrium framed by towering trees, offers a tantalising glimpse of the cityscape beyond, and provides a unique experience whether you're strolling across the lobby or enjoying some time out at one of the five bars, cafés and restaurants. Be sure to sip on a cold Kölsch beer in the rustic-style Kölsche Stuff, before sampling the award-winning goodies of the fifth-floor Bellevue – voted one of Cologne's three best restaurants in 2016. There’s also a swimming pool, sauna and fitness centre for those who want to work off the excesses.

In Cologne, a stroll through the city is like flinging yourself headfirst onto the pages of a history book: ancient Roman walls and medieval churches rub shoulders with avant-garde architecture and post-modern buildings. Make sure to have a wander along the Rhine promenade and leave time to soak up the cultural riches of the city’s art museums, or just sit in one of the many buzzy cafés and simply watch the world go by.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of 5% of the total stay is payable at the hotel upon check-out.
