Covid-19 Measurements at Koncept Hotels


Ever since 2017, you have been able to check in and check out contactlessly with your smartphone in our hotels. Doing so, you can conveniently open your room and all doors in the hotel using the app. We have also adjusted to the new situation: Your bed linen is cleaned to the highest hygienic standards, we limit room cleaning to the day of your arrival and of course we disinfect all surfaces several times a day.

During your stay you get in contact with as few other people as possible. We are still available for you around the clock.

We hope that you not only feel comfortable with us, but also feel safe with us!

Your hotel room in Cologne

Your room at Koncept Hotel Zum Kostbaren Blut has the scent of 4711!

It smells like Cologne in the 1950s: A good dose of eau de cologne, a wonderful evening in the old town and a whole lot of the local scene. Slightly bizarre yet stylish, it’s the 50s, a little economic miracle and as honest as life itself.

It’s like the living room of an interesting friend – not like a hotel room at all! Each one is a collection of art and real life and is brimming with an infinite number of stories.

But what’s most important to us: When you stay at Koncept Hotel Zum Kostbaren Blut you become part of our history and city. We place great emphasis on sustainability and treat our employees, partners and guests fairly – and we do this with one of the most digital hotel concepts you’ve ever experienced.

Let us surprise you!

Of course you can just step outside the hotel and find all the breweries and touristic places. But why eat where all those visitors eat and not where we locals love to go?


Hit Brauhaus Johann Schäfer, if you fancy the typical German cuisine – but with in modern interpretation. You like to spend a few Euros more? Go to Le Moissonnier, Pure White Foodclub or Maison Blue.

Brauhaus Johann Schäfer


Only because it smells like beer infront of our hotel doors, it does not mean that it’s a good place to spend the whole night. Cologne’s party scene has much to offer:


Start the night in one of the city’s cool cocktail bars, like Lorbass, Shepheard or Little Link. Then meet some locals at Weißer Holunder or Hammond Bar. If you want to go clubbing, hit Reinecke Fuchs or Heinz Gaul.

Lorbass Bar

Where can I store my luggage before check-in and after check-out?

How does check-in and check-out work?

We don’t have any staff on property, as we believe that if you can check-in and board yourself at the airport with your smartphone, it should be possible to do so as well at your hotel. To be honest: We save money having you do the work, but we’re not greedy or anything. We invest in things we care about. Read more about that here.

Your room is ready to be checked in at 3 pm on the day of your arrival and check-out time is 12 pm. To check in, we kindly ask you to use our App Hotelbird (iOS / Android).

Register with the email address you made your booking with and complete all needed data in the app. Once registered, add your booking yourself by choosing our hotel “Hotel Zum Kostbaren Blut” or sychronize to add you booking. We will send you our reservation number three days before your stay via email.

Once you are at the hotel, follow the instructions on your screen. Turn on Bluetooth and hold your smartphone near the door opener left of our entrance door. The logo on your screen will turn green and you can open the door. It works the same way with your room door.

Should anything go wrong with your smartphone, you can always check in yourself at our check-in terminal.

Is there an actual person who can help me out, if I need anything?

Sure there is. We live in the city and are always there for you, if you need anything. We just felt that there are better things to invest in than 24/7 staff on property. Just write us on Facebook Messenger  or drop us an email.
