Steigenberger Hotel Cologne opened
Seven-month renovation phase
23 million euro investment
305 rooms and suites – Ballroom – five meeting rooms
The Steigenberger Hotel Cologne is opening its doors following comprehensive renovation works that have taken place over a period of seven months. 305 rooms and suites, the Ballroom, five meeting rooms, a restaurant, the bar and a bistro now all feature a resplendent new look.
The hotel has belonged to the Steigenberger Hotel Group since as long ago as 1 January 2015. It was initially operated under the name of the Hotel Cologne Rudolfplatz by Carey Property S.L., a company managed by the Spanish-based group Azora.
Puneet Chhatwal, CEO of Steigenberger Hotels AG, stated: “Cologne was one of the very few blank spots on our map. We are delighted to gain a foothold in this Rhineland metropolis in order to be able to offer our outstanding level of Steigenberger service.”
The hotel is located in a listed building at the very heart of the city only a few minutes from the historic sight.
Javier Arús Castillo, Azora’s partner responsible for hotels, added: “We have enjoyed a highly successful partnership with Steigenberger for many years. This has its basis in the excellent level of cooperation we enjoy with the Steigenberger Hotel Berlin on Los-Angeles-Platz. For this reason, we are confident that we will be able to work with Steigenberger Hotel Cologne to make a major contribution towards the repositioning of the Rudolfplatz.”
