Downtown Cologne hotel with a health club and cocktail bar The best of both worlds Located in downtown Cologne near restaurant-packed Heumarkt Square, Dorint Hotel am Heumarkt Klns places you a 10-minute walk from the cathedral and 8 minutes from the train station. The subway is nearby for quick access to the Kln Messe trade fair site. Middle Ages to modernity A visit to the Dom, Cologne’s spiky Gothic cathedral, is a must. You can then skip a few centuries to admire the Picassos, Warhols, and other modern art at the Museum Ludwig next door. Business or leisure Though geared to business traveler, the hotel offers plenty for leisure, including a health club and spa. You can fuel up on a huge breakfast buffet (featuring a live cooking station) at Faveo Restaurant, and Harry’s New York Bar is an institution for cocktails with live music some nights. Lots of light, free WiFi Modern, stylish guestrooms and suites are filled with natural daylight through large windows, and many of those on the upper floors have views of the cathedral. Free WiFi and satellite TV make it easy to stay in touch.
