Extraordinary hotels - best choice for your unusual city break in Cologne

Cologne Cathedral Im Wasserturm Im Wasserturm is an old water tower that attracted the attention of French architect Andree Putman and she put her creative vision into this project. The unusual architecture of the tower, which is a symbol of solitude and safety, was turned into an exclusive and one of a kind hotel. The unusual hall with 11-meter high ceiling features bridges that connect all floors of the building. Every room features wooden and glass details, and the original brick walls that remind visitors that they are in a former technical facility. Andree Putman has proved that an impenetrable tower can grant people the freedom they crave for.
Hotel Servatius There are unusual designer hotels in Cologne, and Hotel Servatius is one of them. This hotel is located in the neighborhood of Merheim and looks more like a modern art gallery, rather than an ordinary hotel. Bright crimson color dominates in the interior of the building.

All rooms at this magnificent hotel feature individual design.
Hotel Star am Dom Superior Hotel Star am Dom Superior is another inimitable place that is both stylish and comfortable.
