10/10 Exceptional

Highly recommend Hilton Cologne.
The purpose of my trip in Cologne, Germany was for trade show exhibition. I've attended this exhibition for over 10 years, stayed at several different hotels. This is my first time to stay at Hilton Cologne and completely satisfied with their clean room. The breakfast service was enjoyable. The distance to the central train station was short distance which makes it easy going to the Koelnmesse.

6/10 Good

First of all, the staff was really friendly and helpful so no complaints there. However, because of the cancellation caused by a wrong booking on my part, the correct booking got messed up between Expedia and the hotel. All the emails I received from Expedia did show the correct dates and booking conditions, however, at arrival I was told one of the rooms was not booked and I didn't have breakfast included to which I showed them my emails form Expedia proving otherwise. So the nice lady at the reception helped me correct all the errors and gave us our rooms. checkout, when authorising payments for the city taxes, I was again charged for the breakfast which should have been included in my room rates, lucky I saw that as I normally don't ask for a printed receipt. Again a helpful lady at the front desk helped me clear the charges, nevertheless, it's been a tedious process and should not have happened and if I was not being so careful I might have been charged more than 80 euros extra for one night just for the breakfast. Another issue I did find was that the family rooms were on a street at what seems to be the rear of the building and across that street there is a large waste disposal area of the building on top and it seems that the containers are being emptied very early in the mornings (6 ~ 7am) which was very noisy and woke us all up.
