Le quartier

Always a pleasure having such neighbours: The 25hours Hotel The Circle is located in the hub of the Belgian quarter. The centre of Cologne, the scene and shopping metropolis, is just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Little clothes shops by young designers, second-hand shops and countless cosy cafés and restaurants form the heart of the quarter. The famous Ehrenstrasse with its plethora of renowned shops is also just round the corner. Clubs and nightlife institutions have moved into the Friesen Quarter in the last few years and are also just a few blocks away from the 25hours Hotel The Circle.
