Located opposite the gorgeous Cologne Cathedral, right on the city centre, Excelsior Hotel Ernst – a member of The Leading Hotels of the World – is a luxury hotel that is hard to match.

The main landmarks and sightseeing places are close by as so is the financial district, making it ideal for both business and pleasure.

It has 137 rooms and suites; some of which offer breathtaking views to the cathedral. All have been furnished to ensure comfort without compromising on luxury.

The furniture and fabrics have been carefully chosen and help to create an extremely elegant atmosphere. They are very ample and vary in size to accommodate to different needs.

The gastronomic offer is also broad. The hotel comprises 2 restaurants – Hanse Stube and Taku – that boast two very chic and distinctive styles.

The first one serves French cuisine with an innovative touch that make traditional recipes taste like brand new while the second one offers fine Asian dishes in an exotic and relaxing ambiance.

Guests can also savour colourful cocktails in the classy piano bar where they will be enveloped by a refreshing calmness that sets itself apart from the urban hype that can be sensed all around the city.

If that was not enough, this luxury hotel in Cologne also has top notch sauna and fitness area with a gym, sauna and steam room, as well as succulent culinary events that are worth tasting even by non-gourmet palates.

Centrally located and offering touches of refinement and class at every turn, this 5 star Cologne institution is the perfect base for an out of the ordinary city break!
