I booked this hotel partly because of the good reviews here and I was not disappointed. The rooms were very comfortable and warm (we visited in December), with all most people will need. There was tea/coffee making facilities and sockets for all foreign plugs, which is something I have never seen before, and shows the attention to detail that has... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in October and could have found a better hotel for the occasion. From making the booking on-line the excellent service started with the confirmation email, personal and friendly. The detailed directions to the hotel from the station (complete with photos) couldn't be faulted. The room was compact, well designed and decorated with everything you... More

OK, I have to say this: they have the best breakfast I've eaten in a hotel ever. Everything was fresh and produced locally. The honey, the breads, the fruits... just delicious. Plus, it is very close to many attractions like the Cathedral, the Roman Museum, the Modern Art Gallery... I'll be sure to stay there again when I return to... More

We stayed here at the beginning of December for the Christmas markets. We arrived by car, and we were able to stop just outside the hotel and unload and check-in. We had a warm welcome and check-in was very efficient; we were shown to our room and they even assisted by carrying my suitcase up the stairs. The car park... More

Beautiful modern hotel close to the centre of the city and a few minutes walk from the Railway Station (we arrived by train). An ideal base for the Christmas markets, bars, restaurants in the Alter Markt area, with the cathedral 5 mins walk away. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, their great command of the English language putting my... More

This is our third time coming to the Christmas Markets in Cologne, and this hotel is by far the best we've stayed in. Location is perfect, right in the middle of town, easy walking to everywhere, there's an underground stop around the corner if you need to go further afield, and the while the hotel is small, everything in it...

We stayed at this hotel during a visit to the Christmas markets. Very convenient to the station and within 15 minute walk of principal markets. Very friendly welcome. Comfortable rooms. Excellent breakfast. If we visit Cologne again we will certainly use this hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in early December. The hotel is an easy 7-10 minute walk from the train station. Checking in was a breeze with Manfred helping us with our questions of the surrounding area and was kind enough to organize our bags to be taken to our room on the second floor . There's... More

Wonderful Hotel/ guest House in the centre of the best part of Cologne, every aspect is covered in most others reviews. Like staying in luxury B&B. Michael, Manfred and their team are excellent. It feels like staying in someone's house, wonderful service and so very welcoming. Rooms are so excellently clean and immaculate, very modern, they aren't huge rooms but... More
