Motel One Cologne-Mediapark welcomes you to the creative heart of the Rhine metropolis. Carnival illustrations adorn the walls of our One Lounge and rooms to get you into the mood for the ‘fifth season’. Various nods to Carnival can be seen throughout our lobby, from the classic confetti and streamers to the ‘Kamelle’ (caramel sweets). Enjoy a drink at the bar under coiling designer lights with a counter front decorated with handmade mosaics that look like confetti. We look forward to seeing what else you can discover in our hotel in Cologne!
The cartoon clips playing in the bar depict our Motel One ‘Funkenmariechen’ (Carnival dancer) dancing through Cologne, while the ‘comic explosion’ light installation above our workbenches by Ingo Maurer completes the colourful design. Cologne wisdom and even excerpts from the ‘Kölschen Grundgesetz’ (Cologne’s ‘constitution’) that playfully capture Cologne’s attitude to life can be found throughout the hotel. True to the motto ‘Drinkest Ene Met?’ (Come and have a drink with us?), our Motel One love locks might soon be in use after a few Kölsch beers.
The Mediapark, a stone’s throw away from our hotel, offers its visitors a unique amalgamation of business, entertainment and shopping. This prime location will make your trips to the city centre a piece of cake: the iconic Cologne Cathedral is less than a kilometre away! Getting to and leaving the hotel is also completely stress-free – Cologne’s main train station and Cologne/Bonn Airport are on its doorstep. Of course, the banks of the Rhine and the Hohenzollern Bridge are close by too.
Make the most of the central location before returning to your hotel to chill out: Hotel Cologne’s outdoor lounge feels miles away from the hustle and bustle of Cologne city centre, inviting you to relax – the same goes, of course, for your comfortable room with modern fixtures. Whether you’re here for the Carnival or a business meeting in the Rhein metropolis, as the Cologne constitution says, ‘et kütt wie et küt’ (what will be, will be). At Motel One, we welcome all our guests with Cologne-style warmth – and, of course, free WiFi, an extensive organic breakfast, a stylish bar and a feel-good atmosphere. Your affordable design hotel Cologne-Mediapark.
