Reviewed 19 February 2017

This is a refurbished old water tower. Really well done to retain a very unique structure, so it's a lot more interesting than most hotels. Rooms are modern, not huge but ok. It was interesting enough that I'd definitely stay there again. Wouldn't even bother looking for anywhere else. Expensive enough, but there was a big exhibition on in Cologne...

I spent two nights here in January and it was a very special experience. The hotel itself is beautiful and unique with a wrap-around balcony and unsurpassed views. The staff is friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are luxurious!

We stayed before on the top floor, which is nice with the balcony to walk around the tower, but this Junior Suite on the sixth floor was truly beautifully designed. Very comfortable duplex, lots of privacy, well isolated. Free minibar, amazing view through the round window over the city. Very sweet welcome for the dog as well, with treats and...

We had two great suites at 9th Floor. Directly from the room you can walk around the tower with great views on the city. Breakfast is quite pricy compared to the rooms. With two kids for us reason to go outside. On border of old city Center with everything in walking and biking distance.

We stayed for 2 nights late December. Unusual and Quirky but not a luxury hotel. We stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms at the top and was lovely to walk around the balcony-some nice views. Nice quality coffee in the room and mini bar was a nice extra touch. The staff are very friendly and helpful and speak...

Stayed at the Wasserturm the week before Christmas. It was the perfect time. The hotel is quite special and quirky, five minutes walk from the city centre and easy walking distance to all 6 markets. It's very clean and the staff are charming. Although the skyline restaurant was closed, the one downstairs was lovely. Rooms have coffee machine etc. and...

This hotel is promoted as a luxury hotel in Cologne....it isn't. It is a bit different, maybe quirky, but that is probably the end of the 'pros' list. Whilst the public areas appear well presented the rooms are not the same. Very tight for space and feeling very tired and dated. We had a junior suite with an upstairs sleeping...

It isn't often that one can stay in a former waterworks utility on a vacation. The Hotel in Wasserturm is a high-end experience in one of Germany's loveliest cities. A tour of the building's architecture (I recommend walking down the stairs from the top to the bottom) is fabulous and the interiors are very clever although it is easy to...
