The hotel in on the messa side of the river so the location for exhibition business is ok. The rooms were basic but clean. Internet, although free is very slow. If you need to get to the messa or the centre take the train which is just a short walk to the station. Do not ask reception for a taxi... More

Nasty shower curtain, It used to be white, now It is sort of yellow and the bottom is brown. Paid 250 à night!, for 6 nights, they have charged my creditcard in advance for the... More

I stayed here last year and I have no real complaints about the hotel. The hotel staff were friendly, the room I stayed in was basic but clean and totally functional. Bathroom was tiny but one of the cleanest ones I saw in any of the places I stayed at on my trip. It's in a decent area with plenty... More

We stayed here after visiting a concert in E-Werk. Since we just wanted a place to crash, this was a convenient hostel for us: not too much blabla, clean sheets, okay bathroom and close to the U-Bahn. Good value for money. If you're really planning on visiting the city centre, I might suggest that there are better options. Our creditcard... More

The rooms are basic but fine, nothing really to write about or recommend I stayed with friends and we took up three rooms. In the morning none of us had hot water for a shower. We mentioned this to reception and we got no response. The receptionist refused to apologise for the inconvenience as she hadn't had a chance to... More

Nothing special to write about this place.Stayed in this property twice now(June & November). Although you may obtain cheap prices of EUR 38.00 for the single room only (Advance payment), the property is rather in need of renovation.No inroom phones, and although WiFi is free ,the reception is poor. Sound insulation is very bad, you can hear almost anything in... More

I stayed in this hotel five years ago (2002) and actually had a pleasant time there--the sheets were white and fluffy, the beds just perfect, the breakfast good enough...BUT not anymore!! --the quality of the hotel and the service of the staff deteriorated so much!!! While planning my second trip to Cologne, Germany this time, I figured we could stay... More

Myself and my husband were due to stay at this hotel, but upon arrival with confirmation in hand was rudely told that they had no record of our confirmation and would not honour it. Thus being left on the street, as you can imagine at a busy time like this, it was near impossible to get another room. The hotel... More
