4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We booked this hotel thinking it would be something completely different. For starters, the air conditioning wasn't working, which made my night a living nightmare as it was really very warm inside. The TV/keyboard system didn't work and a bottle of water from the mini bar cost 5 euros. Breakfast was 20 euros pp, which made us try and find something outside the hotel. The accessible entrance to this hotel is a "back-door" make-do kinda thing, which left me with a very bitter taste. Not to mention my wheelchair tire was damaged because I was told to try and enter through the parking lot entrance. Pretty upsetting.

This hotel is located in Cologne, not too far from the city center which is only 15 minutes far on foot. The hotel is located on the riverside and if you get the room on the right side you can see the river just outside your window! A great view! the room is large and clean. A good point to start your visit!

Small hotel next to the Rhein. Rooms are modern and clean. With some nice modern art at display in the rooms and hotel. Friendly people at the reception. Just one thing spirits behind the bar are expensive.

We arrived by car from Koblenz. We stayed in room 522. We did not have breakfast. We loved the vibe & restaurants at nearby Alteburger Strasse (20 minutes walk from hotel) Positives Very easy to navigate to this hotel Large room with lovely decor, particularly liked the window between the bathroom & the bedroom. Unusually the sink was in the bedroom rather than in the bathroom Excellent free wifi Located on the river Well located for city centre Negatives Secure parking was very expensive at 20€ a day

Very nice hotel! Excellent breakfast... Clean rooms and very nice river view! Good position to visit Köln and also not far from Wesseling. It's close to Chocolate Museum. Very friendly staff...The only "bad" thing is that it's not possible to switch off the air conditioned. But the hotel is fantastic!!!

We arrived and were booked in a twin, we asked to change to a double and that was no issue. The room was light, clean and airy. Simple decor and fittings but everything worked and was good quality. Slightly odd feature in that the sink was outside of the toilet/shower room but otherwise nothing untoward. only issue at all was that the air conditioning was a bit nosey for my light sleeping. Location is within walking distance of all the major attractions and just 3 mins from the Chocolate Musuem. We didn't try the food as there were too many restaurants to try in Cologne itself.

We were in room 246 for two nights. The hotel was clean, the staff talk a very good English. We didn't try the breakfast but it look yummy. My kids really like it. They said we sofa bed was really comfortable. We really like the art window between the room and the bedroom. The roof terrace have a good view of part of the city and it's a nice place to relax. The Chocolat museum is at less they 5 minutes walk and the Cathedrale is at a good 20 minutes walk from the hotel.

Was in room 535 for only one night. Marvelous view of the river from the small balcony. Great location for a short walk into the centre with lots of places to eat and drink. Far enough to be quiet. Good breakfast with attentive and smiling staff (which always makes such a difference). Would definately consider if visiting Cologne again.

This is a business hotel, so it's a little way from the centre. Good views of the Rhine and rooms are a good size. Breakfast was fine, and there was enough choice. The only downside was the air conditioning. It didn't work and so the room was stuffy and warm. In fairness, it was exceptionally warm at the end of May but nevertheless the air con could not handle the heat.

we are 4 persons booked 2 separated queen rooms which has fantastic river view.Style of hotel try to be art museum and all walls have some sort of art which has positive energy but it can be much better quality and better selection. Rooms, service, breakfast are average. For breakfast you can go inside and outside by river side. quality of breakfast in some items such as Honey is fresh and for some items is less than average. i want hot water for tea and waiters see that water is near to finish but no action and 5-10 min take till i can fill 2 glasses. we find empty seat outdside and seat is not clean and it take long time to clean it. i think their breakfast need some top manager even when food time is without any guest. WiFi was very fast both in the room and lobby. There is a roof terrace - nice place to relax for a while and take a photo from Kranhause. Chocolate museum front of you and cross pass of bridge which nice place to visit chocolate production from Lint brand. Room is clean, modern and simple design. really i think it should be better to have balcony near the river but they do not have. they are stingy on changing towel and in 3 nights less than 1 time they change it.1 bottle of water is free and they do not add it everyday.
