Timeless elegance and tradition characterize the Excelsior Hotel Ernst and fascinate guests from all over the world. Carl Ernst, better known as “restorer of the royal curt at the central station”, built this Grand Hotel in 1863. For more than 150 years of varied history, Cologne´s first and finest luxury hotel address unites tradition and innovation in an extraordinary symbiosis. As the only member of the Leading Hotels of the World in Cologne, the philosophy of the Excelsior Hotel Ernst “Your individuality is our excellence” is lived daily by its 195 employees.
The exposed position, in the heart of the city and vis-à-vis to the Cologne Cathedral, makes it easily accessible from all directions. The opera, philharmonic and many famous museums, as well as the fairground are also within walking distance. Guests find a wide range of attractive luxury shopping possibilities close to the hotel and just a few minutes by foot there are the traditional breweries, trendy bars and inviting coffee shops.
Nobel materials and valuable antiques give each of the 142 rooms and suites its own character and individual charm. Harmonic colors create a timeless home décor which invite to relax. This personal note, in conjunction to the classic-modern furnishing, fulfills every wish. In the so-called Hanseflügel, the hotel´s Executive Wing, Deluxe Rooms, Junior Suites and Executive Suites offer a discrete and private atmosphere at highest comfort.
At the multiple award-winning gourmet Restaurant Hanse Stube, you will experience culinary magic moments. The motivated team creates innovative French cuisine with local influences, whose finesse is famous far beyond the city border. Exquisite wines from all over the world complete this culinary trip. As an oasis in the middle of the city life, the Mediterranean design of the restaurant terrace invites the guests to enjoy light and seasonal meals during a short lunch break or on a pleasant summer evening.
