I went their with my family for a few days. It was a very bad hotel, and we didn't like it. Let's start with the room: The cleanliness of the room was poor, there was dust almost everywhere, a couple of the lights had burnt out, the shower nozzle was broken and would leak, breakfast timings were not extended even...

The only positive is that it's near train station and near the Kolner Dom. The rest is best forgotten. Small single room upstairs. No elevator and little space in stairways. Wifi??? OK breakfast if you are in a hurry. Hotel needs a proper makeover. Not staying there again.

I feel I have to counter the negative reviews for this hotel as I have just stayed there and it was great!-I had a lovely room at a really good price.Angela the receptionist is the friendliest and most able in the business and if I am in Cologne I will stay nowhere else!-Prost!(John Wayne)

This hotel should not be labelled a hotel its a hostel. The staff are unbelievably disgusting, they stole my belongings and kept them hidden for 3 hours and refused to give them back, wanting a payment id already paid, that being a 600 euro bill stolen from my account. For that 600 euro was a split bit of wood where... More

Half the rooms had no hot water for the whole stay and despite complaining about about no effort was made to fix it.... More

If you suffer with allergies and are allergic to feathers I would not recommend this place. Even though non feather pillows and duvets were requested at time of booking we were informed by reception they didnt have any so when I told them that was a big issue as feathers set my asthma off it was suggested I go and...

This hotel is very central located right next to Appelhofplatz. I stayed there for 2 nights. The first night there was no heating at all although this fixed the next day. Breakfast was buffet style and rather basic. I asked for an iron and was told they had one but didn't know where it was? I don't think I would... More
