Always a good stay at the Circle Cologne

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Tourist09246096885 Business - TripAdvisor review

The location of the Circle is perfect for exploring the city and als well connected to central station. The hotel is as funky as it could get as you are used by all houses of the 25hours chain. The 25h in Cologne though is located in the coolest building a former insurance company HQ. The rooms are modern and in a good state only little signs of wear. The team is professional and very helpful

Entertaining hotel in dirty city Cologne

Louis v Business - TripAdvisor review

The 25h hotel in Cologne is beautiful with its quirky and entertaining "space-age-retro-future"-design concept ! You will find behind every corner a creative decoration, a crazy design element or a great spot for taking funny selfie for your insta account ! The architecture is exciting itselfe, its an old administration building from the 50ies or 60ies shaped as an "o". I like the hotel very much – only problem is when you need to leave the hotel !!! Because you will find yourself in an neighborhood that is ugly at daylight and dangerous at night. I have never seen so much of dirt on the streets, so many ugly buildings at one spot, so many noisy construction sites, so many homeless people and drug zombies on the street and so much childish-made graffiti as i have seen it here in Cologne around th 25h hotel. You are happy when you are back entering the lobby ! The rooms are small but nice, following the same design concept but to my opinion, the open ceilings with look at water pipes and electric cables is a bit too much. Great is the middle-east-fusion-inspired rooftop restaurant and the monky bar as well at rooftop level. The view is nice over the city to the cathedral at sunset and they serve some local inspired drink creations as "Kolle Colada" that is very funny. Maybe they shall think to clean the seats from time to time or to exchange the fabric covers as they had so many stains on it...its not appropriate for a 25h hotel but more for a hostal. Fazit: Impressive, nice and inspiring hotel in the middle of an ungly city.

Good average! All solid but a few flaws

Z2142VAjs Business - TripAdvisor review

After an awesome stay in Munich / Royal Bavarian this was the next destination for a short business trip. Great location and rooms are nice. In general no major reasons to complain However: - The Minibar was not restocked as promised. I do not mind at all in general but if you promise it, never break it. - The co-working area (which is great and a reason why I selected the stay) was not with good service. Rarely any staff, had to go all the way to reception to find someone so I could pay my bill. Also I never received the desired invoices despite asking twice for it. - The lamps next to bed are not nice Really this is between 3-4 stars but it was just not ittttt

Dear Z2142VAjs thank you for your honest feedback. We appreciate it and will do our best to improve! We hope that you’ll give us a second chance any time soon and are looking forward to welcoming you once more. Best regards Your 25hours Team

JiarDean Couples - TripAdvisor review

The staff at this hotel are GREAT, and the food is GOOD, but 25 Hours has a fundamental problem: it cannot deliver its primary function, which is to offer a place to rest when on your travels.  We stayed in December 2022; the hotel is the meat in a construction sandwich. A sandwich so tightly packed your room will vibrate and shake throughout the night and day, but if that doesn't wake you up, maybe the constant noise from the construction, which starts at 6 am sharp and finishes a 10 pm each night. If for some reason, you manage to get to sleep, you won't have to worry. The fire alarms in the hotel will go off in the middle of the night. This happened to us on two separate nights and 4/5 times in total.  If you're an exhibitionist, this could be the hotel for you as housekeeping knocks on your door gently, flips your door open, and enters the room. (If you stay, have do not disturb on the door handle. It's needed) We complained, moved rooms and got a refund for one night and the offer of a voucher to come back from another night and a free meal. I will not be spending hundreds of pounds on flights to return to a hotel, but they know it's an empty gesture as well as we do.  As mentioned, all staff (apart from the room-keeping guy) are excellent, but it's stuck in a noise war with construction workers, and they are winning, meaning you cannot sleep at this hotel. PLEASE AVOID IT FOR TWO YEARS 

Dear Dean thank you very much for your feedback! To stay with us is supposed to feel like you are staying with friends. We are more than sorry that this hasn’t been the case for your and are looking forward to welcome you back soon to prove that we can do better. Best regards

Brilliant location and very stylish but construction work is happening on both sides so beware

mcgringo TripAdvisor review

BASIC stylish rooms and personal mine needed a proper clean, especially the toilet. But I think the biggest thing I have to raise an issue with was the reception/front staff. They were not interested in certainly helping us anytime we asked something, which was twice. I would even say borderline rude. Great area for bars and restaurants and only a 10min walk to 1 of the shopping streets. Overall good for the money paid but maybe more.cleaning and staff training needed.

Dear… thank you very much for your galactic feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyes your trip through our little universe and are looking forward to welcome you back again soon! Kind regards
