TFE Hotels' Newest Adina Hotel Opens in Cologne

COLOGNE, GERMANY: TFE Hotels, will open its very first Adina branded apartment-style hotel in Germany’s North Rhine-Westphalia region on July 15.

The 171-key new-build Adina Apartment Hotel Cologne features spacious studios and apartment-style rooms, smart design and all the amenities needed to turn a hotel into a home away from home.  Located on the banks of the Rhine River in the middle of the ultra-modern MesseCity, the hotel is also close to the Cologne Trade Fair entrance and the long-distance train station Messe/Deutz for both corporate and leisure travellers.

Hotel General Manager, Katharina Eckardt - who has joined the Cologne pre-opening team from her perch at Adina Frankfurt Westend - said TFE’s newest Adina delivered in spades to both leisure and corporate travellers.

“The hotel is superbly located directly on the banks of the Rhine and is just a short 15-minute walk to the city centre via the famous Hohenzollern Bridge,” she said. “Plus, business travellers are equally well serviced given the hotel’s proximity to the trade fair and easy connections to the ICE train station Deutz.” 

Sports and music fans will be able to take advantage of the hotel’s proximity to Cologne’s indoor Laxness Arena and outdoor lovers will naturally gravitate to the hotel’s two open terraces during the European summer or to the heated pool and sauna in winter.

“We look forward to welcoming our first guests when doors open on 15 July,” Katharina said.

TFE Hotels Group Chief Operating Officer, Chris Sedgwick, said TFE had achieved the seemingly impossible, opening 10 hotels in Australia, New Zealand, and one in Austria over the past 12 months, amid challenging operating conditions.

“We now turn our attention to Europe where we have some terrific hotels in the pipeline including our very first Adina Apartment Hotels in Cologne, Munich, Wiesbaden, Stuttgart and Dusseldorf,” he said.

Sedgwick said TFE’s European leadership team – lead by Adina CEO Simon Betty, Director of Development Matthias Niemeyer, and Director of Operations Georgios Ganitis – was incredibly excited to take the Adina brand into Switzerland for the very first time in 2023.

“TFE Hotels is a company on the move and we’ll and continue to seek out new markets, and strategic and entrepreneurial opportunities for our European business,” he said. 


What’s in a name: Adina Apartment Hotel Cologne can be shorted to Adina Cologne after first use.
