4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel has a very good location. Within walking distance to city’s main attractions. The breakfast served was amazingly good and a lot. Very clean, super friendly staff and very good service. Only reason i do jot rank this hotel as excellent is that it needs renovation. Nearly forgot. Even if you don’t stay here, go and eat their burger in the restaurant. One of the best i have ever tried.

The location is really great, very close to the dome, main shopping streets, but also to boutiques and nightlife area for drinks and food. The offered parking for 25 euros/day is spacious and secure. Staff was friendly and helpful. The offered gym has anything you need for a good workout. The rooms are spacious and the bed very comfy. BUT....The hotel ist definitely not worth a 4 stars. The rooms are in need of a renovation. Carpet had a lot of stains and the bathroom was aged and not really clean. The AC didnt work, so we had to open the window, but had to close it again, as you could hear all the drunk people which were walking down the street from the bar area. Some shampoo stains from former guest were here and there. There was even a used shampoo bottle above the mirror. The bathtub didn’t work when I tried to take a bath. They really should do something about it.

Great hotel with nice staff. Rooms are okay but a bit dated. Great (big) beds. Free WiFi. Walking distance to the Domchurch. We had a room at the backside where there was a lot of noise from the bars at night but with the Windows closed it was okay.

I stayed in a suite with two friends, we travelled to Köln for the Christmas markets. We were not disappointed! From the minute we checked in the staff were incredibly helpful, with excellent English. We had use of the first class lounge as we had booked a suite, which was superb. Amazing food and soft drinks all day. Location is also great for walking to the Dom or just having a stroll around, the main shopping street is only a few minutes away. We booked 2 nights but we wished we had booked more! Will definitely stay here next time I am in Köln, thank you so much. You helped make our trip unforgettable.

Spacious and clean rooms.Very pleasant staff. Very close to shopping areas. The train stop is about 400m from the Hotel.Good coffee machine in room! Downside: Room smelled of cigarette smoke. Expensive breakfast

Nice old fashion German hotel. Walking distance from the main rail station. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. The room was large and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Big size TV with USB outlet (good for cell phone charging).

As I am writing this, it is 3:19 am in the morning. We cannot sleep because of the partying under our window. The reception staff (who assumedly gave us this room knowing of its problems) say the hotel is full and we cannot be given a different room. So we are trapped here for another five hours. We went outside to see what could be done. Loud drunken people, homeless people, urination on the street -- well, you get the idea. I wouldn't call this a safe, good neighbourhood. This is a hotel where the staff will coldly assign you a room knowing you are going to have a night from hell. When I complained, the reaction was unhelpful. Apparently they deal with this all the time. They literally blamed me for not asking for a quiet room and for not changing rooms after we saw where it was. In our defence, we did not know that German bars were open all night and that most of the partying takes place in the street Another serious problem with the hotel is the 3 pm check-in time. (Although I'm starting to understand why the hotel needs so much time. Many of the guests are apparently here to party).

This hotel offers perfect Cologne City Centre access. Located just a 10 minute walk from the main rail station, this hotel is cannot be faulted for its location. The lobby area is attractively kitted out and the hotel staff are very pleasant and attentive. The rooms are large, clean, and the bed is comfortable. A slight disappointment was the lack of coffee/tea facilities and there was no ironing table or iron available in room. The room decor was somewhat black and white and would benefit from a bit more colour being introduced. This hotel may not be my first choice in Cologne, but for value for money and location it offers good basic accommodation.

After a couple of weeks I am back again in this hotel. There are some renovations in progress, some floor are freshly painted and got a new carpet. Sad is that the gym as a defect air conditioning... The service personal was like always friendly.

Excellent stay here: nice, big and quiet rooms. Great breakfast buffet with all you want and also the lunch buffet (during the event) was very nice. Have used their sauna, which was large, clean and very relaxing. Convenient parking underneath the hotel.
