With its elegance and classy design, the five-star luxury Excelsior Hotel Ernst is an exceptional place. Situated directly in the centre of Cologne, opposite the famous Cologne Cathedral, the Grand Hotel poses as the perfect starting point for exploring the city. Furthermore, one can spend some rather enchanting holidays here. Having been family-owned since 1863, the Excelsior Hotel Ernst combines traditions with modernity. As Cologne’s only member of the ‘Leading Hotels of the World’ luxury hotel collection, it seems no wonder that the hotel offers luxurious living comfort and the city’s highest service standards in its 140 rooms and luxury suites. The hotel’s exceptional holiday packages and deals further attract many visitors as these turn the famous Cologne Carnival, New Year’s Eve or Christmas into even more phenomenal experiences than they already are.
