Europe vs usa

I have learned a lot on this trip. For Europe This is a three-star hotel at Best. In America it can be considered a two-and-a-half star. I guess I'm just not used to cold cuts and Warm eggs for breakfast. Even though the website shows them having cinnamon rolls and scrambled eggs.

A great hotel experience

Posted Sep 10, 2015
Pros: Location, price
Cons: One more lift
Location: The Holiday in was near a mixed culture neighbourhood. It is interesting to stroll the block observing how others live.
Our recent stay at the Holiday Inn was overall a great experience. The hotel is located near a train station and Lidl supermarket as well as next to McDonalds. It was easily accessed from the main highway so we were able to get away early in the morning without traffic negotiations. The room was roomy and tidy, the bed comfortable and the layout logical. The free breakfast was adequate. Only one frantic lady was in the restaurant area replenishing supplies and cleaning tables. She did this wearing a smile and without stopping.

Pros: Rooms, staff, breakfast.
Cons: Parking facilities.
Location: About 5 miles from the centre of Cologne. Not an easy journey into Cologne unless you go by tram.
We had a lovely stay at this hotel. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The facilities were excellent. Breakfast was very good with a great variety of cheeses and meats. Cereal, breads, yogurt and fruit were also on offer. The rooms were a good size with everything we could have wanted.

Hot and Stuffy -- but Reno should make it better

4 out of 5
by from Edmonton
Posted Aug 25, 2015
Pros: ease of accessing hiway and getting to downtown. Very reasonable rates, Mcdonalds right beside. Typical Holiday in Express breakfast.
Location: Downtown is a quick 10 minute drive.
Stayed here for 5 days in August. Renovation is going on so the central air conditioning didnt work. Was on the 4th floor and room was so hot that I couldnt sleep. I was relocated the next morning to a room on the first floor. Still was warm but bareable because the weather cooled. The staff was excellent and very accomodating. I can only rate a 4, because I was not made aware of the points for staying membership until I reached the next Holiday inn in Munich. I missed out on collecting points for 5 days. I wish I would have been aware of the points system. They had a meeting room booked so the morning breakfast was out of control one day. Most of the staff worked very hard trying to clean tables so people could sit.

Hotel was lovely, although not quite central location was easy enough to get to using public transport. Perfect for short break if all you need in a hotel is bed and breakfast.
