As the name suggests, spending a night at the art’otel means an immersion in an artistic world. The immediate proximity of the Rhine, as well as all the original works of the Korean artist SEO, mean that a stay in this ‘designer’ establishment is a singular experience.

Excellent perspectives for those who enjoy design


The view from the hotel windows is fantastic, of course: listed historic buildings blending with the most modern of architecture, to which is added the bonus of the view over the Rhine. Not only that, the closeness of the city centre makes art’otel an ideal starting point for anyone who loves culture and an urban atmosphere. I particularly love the modern, rectilinear design of the rooms: take your time to relive in thought all the impressions gleaned during the day, without anything getting in the way. The choice extends from the Junior suite through to the superior category.

Enjoyment with all the senses


I like the trapezoidal shape of the horizontal plane and the blue, yellow and light pink windows in the hotel. In the majestic entrance hall, given the sobriety of the walls in bare concrete, the light effects contribute significantly. The hotel restaurant, the Chino Latino, warrants a recommendation in its own right. The Chino aspect, whose concept was born in the United Kingdom, offers a range of dishes originating from Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine, and is one of the best Asiatic restaurants in the city. The different versions of sushi and sashimi are quite simply divine.

I've always loved Cologne. The city is industrial and romantic at the same time. I love my city for its galleries, classical concerts and elegant restaurants and its traditional and very trendy bars! My little extra: I love words, the arts and literature!
