A great hotel to be a base for exploring Cologne. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is a short walk (approx 5 minutes) from the cathedral and central train station which offers easy connections to Cologne airport. Located on a main street in the centre of the Old Town, it is surrounded by a wide range of bars and restaurants. The Rhine is a short walk away, offering more bars, restaurants, bridges and museums. In the other direction, the newer part of Cologne can be easily reached with an abundance of shops and restaurants. The room was an adequate size with comfortable beds and kept clean throughout our stay. Unfortunately the room was extremely hot, particularly at night, but the noise from the street meant we couldn’t leave the window open. The bathroom was clean with a powerful shower but was only separated from the room by a thin sliding door. Our room rate included breakfast which was one of the highlights of the stay. The breakfast staff were very polite and attentive. The breakfast buffet included a range of breads, meats, cheeses, pastries cereals and fruits as well as cooked options of eggs, bacon and sausages. The food was replenished regularly and very enjoyable.

The hotel is in a good location, near the train station and good restaurants and other sights. The room was very small with no closet or clothing storage. Although the staff seemed nice, they kept giving me wrong directions or information about major tourist attractions. Sad that it was better to ask people on the street. Next time, I will look for a hotel with better service and a place to store my clothes.

The location of the hotel is ideal - only a few minutes on foot from the railway station and just around the corner from the cathedral. The room was very clean, compact and comfortable. Although it was small, it was fine for a short stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Hotel close to train station and cathedral as well as a good selection of bars and reataurants. Found the staff to be friendly. Our room was spotlessly clean, with nice bedding and towels and a good shower. The buffet breakfast was very good with an excellent choice of hot and cold food and a good service window. The hotel bar was very quite with a limited selection of drinks but quite adequate for pre dinner drinks. Only down side was not being able to buy a drink from the bar at about 11.55pm one evening, as the staff member had 'closed up' for the night. As residents we expected to be served, which we apparently should have been. This resulted in a very short walk to the bar next door, where the beer was on draught which suited the men in the party, so problem solved! I would be happy to stay there again if ever back in Cologne.

stopped here for 3 nights with my wife and some friends , the hotel is clean and tidy the rooms are small but everything you need is there , the staff were all excellent helpful and professional, the breakfast was excellent with everything you require to set you up for the day i would certainly recommend to anyone going to cologne also it was only 10 mins walk from the railway station and nice and central for all the tourist sites

We had a lovely weekend in Cologne. The hotel is in the perfect location, very close to the train station and cathedral. We had a twin room on the 3rd floor. I'd read reviews saying that being at the front of the hotel was noisy but it was absolutely fine for us. The beds are very comfy the shower was great. The receptionists and cleaning lady were very friendly and allowed us to leave our bags at the hotel all day on Sunday before we flew home. Didn't have breakfast in the hotel, but from what we could see it looked delicious! Would definitely recommend staying here if you visit Cologne! There are some lovely Brauhaus' and cafes nearby! Thank you

This recently refurbished hotel is located right in the heart of this great city. The hotel is spotlessly clean and everything works. The rooms are finished to a high standard and the beds are very comfortable. Some people have commented about the noise from the adjoining bars and restaurants, something we did not hear from room 501 which looks out at the back of the hotel. The rooms are a bit small and if you are bringing more than carry-on sized luggage you may find yourself running out of floorspace. The rooms are also quite warm, the air-con would go no lower than 19C so we had to sleep with the window open, but this was not an issue.

I stayed therre 1 night. The beds are excellent. Not so easy to find, but very central. Trainstation just around hte corner. Service excellent. Wifi very good. And you are i"in hte middle of town!", so easy t ohave a wlak around in the evening.

This hotel is very well located - a comfortable 10 to 15 minute walk (with luggage) from the main railway station and the Cathedral. The entrance to the Alter Markt Christmas Markets is outside the hotel foyer, the Cathedral Christmas Market only a 5 to 10 minute walk, and the Angels' Christmas Market, the main shopping precinct and the Harbour Christmas Market all within comfortable walking distance. The Christmas Market Express also has a timed stop outside the hotell entrance. Several small minimarts and restuarants/cafes can be found in the surrounding streets, The room was clean, spacious and well heated, and included a private bathroom/ensuite. We found the staff friendly and helpful. One small issue/misunderstanding with our bill. We thought we had included breakfast in our room booking but were told at check-in that breakfast was not iincluded. At check-out we found we had been charged breakfast even though we had not taken breakfast in the hotel. After querying the charge we were refunded the breakfast charge without arguement.

The location is excellent - its in the Alter Markt, a short walk from the main station, very close to the Cologne Philharmine and Ludwig Museum and a host of good bars and restaurants, but the room we were given had a problem with an unpleasant smell of drains. Staff were friendly and room was changed, but room we were given in exchange was very small.
