Hotel Chelsea Koeln Nacht

The Chelsea

The Chelsea hotel calls itself „the hotel different“. What’s so different about the Chelsea? Is there something special which other hotels don’t have?

The Chelsea is not a „design hotel“, even less a „boutique hotel“. Design hotels are by definition „designed“ (by now we have eben got „budget design hotels“), the Chelsea has grown by itself; it is authentic.

The Chelsea hotel is often called an artists‘ hotel or an art hotel. But foremost it is a house for guests, where everybody is welcome and where those who esteem a taste for the individual feel comfortable. Nevertheless, it is true, that for more than 30 years the Chelsea has been residence, indeed „home away from home“ for many artists.

These artists have left their traces. The works of art which are on display in the rooms are more than just decoration, they are proof of the bond between the artists and the hotel, among them Walter Dahn, Jiri Georg Dokoupil, Martin Kippenberger, Albert und Markus Oehlen, Andreas Schulze, Günther Förg, A.R. Penck, Georg Herold, Sam Samore, Rosemarie Trockel and many others.

The Chelsea has 39 rooms, including 4 suites. The rooms are equipped with all necessary facilities, shower or bathtub, WC, minibar, hotel safe, flatscreen-TV, free high-speed WLAN internet access. Guests are also welcome to use a computer at the reception with internet access and printer free of charge. On the top floor – built in deconstructivist architecture – most rooms have their own little terrace, some rooms there are two-storied. All the rooms on the top floor are air-conditioned. For small gatherings or conferences up to 25 persons we offer our suite on the second floor. Limited parking facilities are available.
