Overview

Offering spectacular views of neighbouring Gothic masterpiece Cologne Cathedral, the 5-star Excelsior Hotel Ernst is a bastion of tradition in the centre of Cologne. This classic, family-run lodging occupies an elegant 19th-century building with an ornate stone façade, and is a short stroll from Köln Hauptbahnhof railway station and within a 10-minute walk of major sights including the historic City Hall and Alter Markt square, and Museum Ludwig, home to an eclectic collection of modern art.

Marble pillars, rich fabrics and a sweeping staircase topped with a glass dome characterise Excelsior Hotel Ernst’s refined interiors. There’s a polished piano bar decked with wood-panelled walls and a mirrored ceiling. Dining options include Hanse Stube, a genteel restaurant for French fine dining, and Taku, a Michelin-starred contemporary-design eatery offering East Asian cuisine. Afternoon tea is served in the winter garden or the sophisticated lobby lounge. Guests can work out in the fitness room and relax in the hotel’s sauna and steam room.

The hotel’s classy atmosphere is picked up in its 137 stately rooms, which feature white walls, dark wood furnishings and marble or natural stone bathrooms. All the rooms come with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and mini bars, plus armchairs. Higher-grade rooms add splashes of warm colour, partial underfloor heating, rainforest showers and sitting areas, while suites have separate living rooms and distinct touches ranging from views of the cathedral to Jacuzzi tubs. Room service is available 24 hours.
