Reviews – What People Are Saying
There are several reviews posted throughout the internet, about Cologne Bonn Airport. They are a series of positive and negative reviews, though most of the negative reviews talks about how big the airport is, yet somehow, showcases limited souvenir shops and restaurants, and the airport’s simple architecture. The Airport is always rated average by most of their customers, and I think that’s not bad at all. As for the positive remarks, here are some reviews coming from the airport’s customers.
“For me clean and nice. Close to international terminal is little supermarket where you can buy simply food,alcohol and sweets in good price. Close to security check in international terminal is traditional German pub with lots of pictures politicians drinking beer. Service there is quick and nice. Food looking good and tasty. My recommendation is FlammeKueche with prawns and cheese.”
—Pawel W (Manchester, United Kingdom)
“It’s a massive cliche to point out how efficient Germans are, but CGN is a perfect example of this. We were deplaned, through customs and on a train to the city centre in less than 15 minutes. It was just a breeze. Similar experience on the way out, with the free wi-fi making the wait in the terminal a lot easier. It really makes Cologne perfect for a weekend break.”
—Dave H (Cork, Republic of Ireland)
“Clean, tidy airport with reasonably quick security checks (much quicker than London Airports for example). A good amount of seating and various duty-free style shopping and eating options once past security. Easy arrivals process. Good public transport connection to the city centre via train – although a reasonable walk to the station itself.”
—Stephen R (London, United Kingdom
