Hotel Chelsea is located near the city center of Cologne, just walking distance from either Rudolfplatz or Moltkestraße light rail stations. It is often called as an artists’ hotel because the artworks in the rooms are from artists who have stayed with them.
For my trip in Cologne, I stayed with Hotel Chelsea, “the hotel different”. They have 39 rooms, including 4 suites, and the rooms are equipped with the necessary facilities. And apparently, the artworks inside the rooms are from artists who have lodged at the hotel. Amazing!
They assigned me to a French Room (Single) on the 4th floor. The room key was very interesting, something I had not seen before in other hotels! Too bad I forgot to take a close up pic. Funny though because I had a little difficulty figuring out how to make it work at first.
The room had no aircon which I didn’t mind because you can just keep the window open for a natural breeze. But do take note that there are rooms that have. There was a table that you can use if you need to work on your laptop. Internet is stable, even inside the room. On the right side of the table, there’s a mini fridge, but items in it are not free.
The bed size was perfect, not too small and not too huge. They had prepared a pack of gummy bears on top of my pillow that I absolutely loved. Little trivia: Did you know that gummy bears originated in Germany? 🙂 Also, didn’t get to use them but the room had a flat TV and a closet with hangers and safety box.
The bathroom/toilet was clean and had towels, a blower, slippers and tissues. I really liked the slippers with their logo on it! The mirror was a bit small for me though, but everything else were good.
There was no breakfast buffet, but in front of the hotel is Café Central. It’s a coffee shop, bar and restaurant where you can get items at reasonable price. It’s perfect if you don’t feel like going out of the hotel or need a quick meal or drink.
It was a short & sweet stay, and I would like to give Andrea a shout out for assisting! Danke schön Hotel Chelsea!
