Excelsior Hotel Ernst in Cologne, Germany

Nestled among the church spires of Cologne, Germany, not far from the Rhine River, stands the exemplary Excelsior Hotel Ernst. A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this historic hotel, one of only a few buildings in these parts to survive World War II, has been part of the cityscape for nearly 140 years. Its luxurious rooms and excellent service have earned it both a loyal following and flawless reputation, as well as inclusion in Conde Nast Traveler's Gold List.

The reception area, featuring highly polished marble and rich hues of gold and blue, provides an elegant first impression. The hotel is home to the award-winning restaurant Hanse Stube, as well as a convenient fitness center. Beyond the hotel doors is a city primed for exploration. Nearby are the famed Cologne Cathedral and throngs of museums, including the decadent Stollwerck Chocolate Museum. The holiday season is an all-year happening at the Cologne Christmas Market, and there are many nearby shops and boutiques selling first-rate German crystal and other keepsakes.

Last month we stayed twice in Hotel Ernst. The first time we had a beautiful suite: two rooms, big bathroom, walk-in closet, separate toilet. The second time we had decided to use a free night award from the Leading Hotel Club, but even so we got a beautiful twin-bedded room (twins is what we prefer), with every comfort, and a great bathroom with separate shower. We really felt pampered! In the morning there is a very good breakfast buffet in the Hanse Stube restaurant. The mahogany panelled restaurant, which comes into its own at night, might not be the sunniest place to drink your morning cappuccino. But the service is friendly, and the cappuccino is excellent.

Spent the weekend here. Fantastic choice. An amazing location-2 minute walk from train station, the Dom right outside the front door, minutes away from museums, Altstadt, restaurants, breweries. We booked a standard room but it was huge & luxurious. The marble bathroom included a giant jetted tub which my husband loved. The public spaces were well appointed, the staff extremely courteous & helpful. We especially enjoyed watching & talking to the bartender on Saturday evening when we stopped for a nightcap. Hotel even has an original Van Dyke hanging on one wall! Can’t say enough about this positive experience!

My family and I stayed over the weekend so we could see the Cathedral in Cologne. This property is just across the street, and is 2 minutes walk from the Cologne Main Train Station. We stayed in the Hanse Stube wing of the hotel, which has been recently refurbished with great touches...we were able to get two adjoining rooms so space with a family of four wasn't an issue...rooms are fairly spacious anyway. The staff was attentive and helpful and found ways to accommodate our needs. We had dinner in the Hanse Stube resturaunt, and they were accommodating to our youngest in a friendly unobtrusive way. Finally, access to the shopping district is just across the street I would highly recommend staying here

Located across a plaza from the train station, it is also next to the Dom, the top attraction in town and close to the other museums. The staff was attentive and helpful. the rooms were spacious and the A/C was great. Everything about the hotel was clean and elegant, without being too extravagant.

The hotel is beautiful and centrally located to the Dom Cathedral, train station, restaurants and other activities. We were surprised at how beautiful our room was and how comfortable the amenities were. We truly enjoyed our stay and the staff was very welcoming and helpful!
