Cologne

Creative, cosmopolitan and totally charming

Book your stay in the city centre

Cologne may be famed for its gothic cathedral and picture-perfect Christmas market, but there's much more to this exciting city. Alongside ancient architecture and classic German cuisine, you'll find super-modern design, a lively arts scene and restaurants bristling with Michelin stars. 


Of course no visit would be complete without a snifter of the local brew. So make a beeline for a Brauhaus, where Kölsch, the local tipple, is served up by the stein.

Hotel & Bar

Hit the lights, roll the cameras and strike up the band, because Ruby Ella is coming to you live from the Capitol in Cologne. Built on the site of the studio that once hosted Germany’s top talk shows, Ruby Ella’s bringing back the 90s late-night TV buzz, from polished chrome and neon signs to microphones and musical instruments.

  • Great for: seeing both Cologne's creative and cosmopolitan sides
  • Local favourites: starting the day with coffee in the chilled-out Belgian Quarter, then exploring the lively city centre and its endless foodie options
  • Nearest station: Friesenplatz

Explore the neighbourhood

Sandwiched between Cologne’s old town and the arty Belgian Quarter, Ruby Ella makes a great base for both first-timers and frequent visitors.

City centre

If it’s classic Cologne you’re after, the Altstadt is two tram stops away, where you’ll find the iconic Kölner Dom, along with museums and galleries, including Museum Ludwig with its impressive collection of modern art.

Shopping

If shopping’s more your style, Schildergasse is a two-stop hop on the tram, and you’ll find everything from historic arcades to ultramodern malls for some serious retail therapy.


When it’s time for a breather, hit the Belgian Quarter for the city’s best coffee or make a beeline for a Brauhaus, where Kölsch, the local tipple, is served up by the stein.

Nightlife

Come dinner time, everything from street food to Michelin stars are a short walk or tram ride away. And afterwards, the friendly pubs, clubs and cocktail bars of Friesenplatz, Ehrenfeld and Hohenzollernring are within easy reach of your room.
