    I always stay at the Excelsior when I come to Cologne. It is close to the station, close to the Cathedral and in terms of service and comfort, as close to perfection as one could wish for. This is justifiably a 5 star hotel.More

    To my knowledge this is a public garage (underground) . It is probably as secure as any public garage is in a German city. Please contact the hotel for further details.
