    High Class

    Excelsior Hotel Ernst is an exquisite property that far exceeded our expectations. High class in every way, we enjoyed every moment of our stay here. Reception was so accommodating and helpful, and our room was spacious and luxurious. Thank you for a wonderful stay! I highly recommend the King Deluxe room, with its dark wood panels, tall ceilings, beautiful ivory wallpaper, desk, two comfy chairs, and very large bathroom. This is one of the best rooms in Cologne and I can see why! The minibar was also included in the price of the stay, which is a rare pleasure that exceeds all other hotels I have stayed at. The restaurants in the hotel are, like the hotel itself, world class. We had a leisurely lunch at Hanse Stube during our stay. After our amuse bouche we moved to a beef consommé and an asparagus cream soup that were divine. The cuisine was centered around local ingredients with combined local/French techniques, but was a step above! My saddle of venison was cooked to perfection, tender, moist, and seasoned to absolute perfection with a licorice sauce, king oyster mushrooms, spiced cherries, and a creamy risotto. My husband had a rare breed black feathered chicken with potatoes and vegetables. The chicken was a 'label rouge' bird, meaning that it met strict French culinary guidelines. The service we received was impeccable! The Michelin guide even gives Hanse Stube a nod to their high standards and quality and excellent wine list.

    Wonderful Hotel

    Well I feel like Lady Mary in downtown abbey in this hotel. The rooms are simply gorgeous and room service is excellent with staff offering exemplary service. My room service meal consisted of grilled turbot on a bed of vegetable. It was simply delicious. I also had a massage in the room which was first class. The hotel is simply beautiful. The only thing lacking is tea and coffee making facilities in room. This would be an excellent touch. The bathroom is excellent and the French restaurant is simply beautiful. I stayed in Cologne for 4 days and used to treat myself to overnights here. It is a toss up if I prefer this to the Hyatt. Both in my opinion are excellent. This is more traditional and you walk away feeling utterly pampered. the doorman comes straight towards you to take your bags after you depart the taxi. There is also someone to lead you to your room so that you can marvel at the wide corridors and beautiful stained glass windows. A very beautiful touch. Congratulations keep up the excellent service. I miss this hotel when I leave Cologne.
