Hotel Santo, Cologne: hotel review

Hotel Santo

Located in the centre of Cologne, this contemporary modern hotel is light and spacious whilst remaining warm and inviting.


Hotel Santo is conveniently located in the centre of Cologne, a short 10-minute walk from Cologne's impressive gothic Cathedral.


Recently renovated in 2012 this contemporary modern hotel is light and spacious whilst remaining warm and inviting. Clever use of lighting brings warmth to off-white concrete walls, makes a feature of the reception desks and highlights the striking central courtyard. Furnished with stylish cream leather sofas and chairs, dark mahogany tables and high shine varnished furniture, sitting on a natural stone floor, the combination of clean lines and comfort have been well thought out.

On your visit to Hotel Santo you can expect to see travellers and business people alike, quietly going about their day.


We stayed in one of Hotel Santo's spacious Double rooms, decorated in a modern minimalist style, the room was very clean and well kept. The comfortable double bed was dressed in crisp, clean white linen sheets with anti allergenic pillows and covers. Our modern tiled bathroom was equally spacious and clean, however if you are looking to for a relaxing bath at the end of a hard days sightseeing you wont find one here. Extra features included, free wifi, cable television, Nespresso coffee maker, mini bar, and a safe.

Food & Drinks

An excellent hot and cold buffet breakfast is served each morning 6:30am - 10:00am (with time extended to 12:00pm on a weekend) in the breakfast room, which is decorated with some very interesting black and white photographs.

The lobby bar is open 24 hours a day and serves a selection of hot drinks, soft drinks, wines, spirits and snacks.
