DETAILED DESCRIPTION

A family-run luxury hotel, The Excelsior Hotel Ernst is almost as much as a Cologne institution as the UNESCO-recognised cathedral which it is opposite. Since 1863, guests have explored the city’s museums, markets and medieval halls from here.

Cologne’s only member of the Leading Hotels of the World, The Excelsior Hotel Ernst has a Michelin-starred restaurant, 12 separate function rooms, and 140 classically decorated rooms. A Grand Hotel in size and style, it has a surprisingly intimate feel. Whether reinvigorating themselves in the sauna and steam room, savouring the award-winning French cuisine in Hanse Stube or enjoying tea in the Piano Bar, guests can be sure of the hotel team’s devotion to attentive service.

WHAT WE LIKE ABOUT THE HOTEL

  1. Cologne close-up: The hotel is near neighbour to the Shrine of the Three Magi – Germany’s most visited attraction – Cologne’s Chocolate Museum, the city’s ancient Roman Praetorium and, of course, the Rhine.
  2. Stellar cuisine: serving first-class Vietnamese cuisine, restaurant taku has been awarded one Michelin Star.
  3. Age-old innovation: in its traditional approach to service, the past is ever present here. But the outlook is forward-looking and guests enjoy every contemporary comfort, including pillow menus and a digital concierge.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

ROOMS & SUITES

Total number of guest-rooms: 144
Total number of suites: 29
Number of floors: 6

All the rooms include flat TVs, free wifi, marble-tiled bathrooms and rain showers. These modern luxuries complement classic décor that uses earth tones in the 144 rooms and more pastel shades in the 26 suites. Antique furniture and rich fabrics feature throughout, but the overall effect is never imposing and there is a sense of cosiness even in the largest suites. Stone baths, jacuzzis and walk-in closets add to the appeal of these suites. But probably the feature that lingers longest with guests in the larger rooms and suites is the spectacular views over Cologne Cathedral.
