Nice, read okay reviews so was happier when better than.

Pros: Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, couldn't figure shower head
The hotel was nice, as expected for Hilton chain. The room was pleasantly larger than expected after reading another review that said small European room. Room had two chairs, table, desk and large bed (firm European type) with plenty of space. Pleasant bathroom with towel warmer, glass cubes onto sleeping area illuminated when light was turned on. Only bad side, couldn't figure how to get warm/hot water out of shower headso had to settle for bath. Clean. Stick to free wi-fi in lobby. Used business center and five days later have a pending charge that says $68 for ten minutes of Internet -still not clear as to how much will be charge. Use free lobby wi-fi.

Old hotel, but not showing its age.

I've stayed several times at the Cologne Hilton and find it very convenient for train travelers, being less than a 5 minute walk from the main station. I was surprised on this visit to find out from the staff that it is the oldest Hilton in Germany (and perhaps Europe). Nonetheless, it is fully modern and well-maintained. The only feature I didn't care for is that it caters to convention groups, not my favorite fellow hotel guests (plastic smiles, pretentiousness and overall loudness). Food and extras might seem high if you're not on an expense account. The staff was helpful and friendly.

Belongings stolen from inside my hotel room.

Pros: location
Cons: No free Internet, unhelpful and untrustworthy staff
While staying at the Hilton Cologne Hotel my iPhone and a 50 Euro bill were stolen from my closed luggage inside my locked hotel room. Hilton staff checked the room's key card log and verified that the only people that entered the room were authorized Hilton employees and me. The Hilton management staff smugly refused to do anything to acknowledge or resolve the theft. The cost of an iPhone hardly compares to the invasion of privacy I experienced and the knowledge that Hilton employees rummaged through my luggage. Should I have put my belongings in the safe? Of course. However, now I know that untrustworthy and unhelpful staff works here, and I will not return.

great location

The location of the hotel is wonderful, 1 block away from the main train station. The only thing we did not like was that we satyed on the first floor, (lobby level) and there was alot of noise, we could hear people walking all night, especially high heels, other wise it was nice.
