We got off to a great start, the hotel was easy to find and our check-in experience, late at night, was absolutely perfect. We asked for a non-smoking twin room and were delighted to get a room on the 8th floor, with two large beds and an amazing view over Cologne. Certain aspects of the hotel are dated - the... More

Its a shame to see a hotel in such a state. The premises are run down, the garden has not seen a gardener for months. The hotel is in such poor state and is begging for a refurbishment. The staff just does not bother, they spend more time goofing around other than assisting their guests. The Location is great though,... More

This hotel used to be the Crowne Plaza, and in it's heyday it must have been a great place to stay. Unfortunately its heyday was the 1960's, and it has not been updated since then. The carpets are frayed and stained, the air conditioning loud and weak, the beds are uncomfortable, and you will trip on the door frame to... More

The rooms were big, the bathroom was old and water/steam did not drain correctly. The location was pretty great (not hard to achieve in such a small city). The negatives included having to ask for an extra blanket twice... they appeared to be using single/king single blankets? That is not acceptable for a queen/king sized room in the middle of... More

Chose this hotel in a hurry due to its location, but will not come again. Very worn, stained and partially ripped furniture, uncomfortable bed and unmotivated staff. Broken window blinds and while airconditioning seems to exist, its also broken. Breakfast just about ok, nothing impressive. Seems to target English speaking tourists mainly.

Very good hotel, service and rooms were good but the best thing was its location and excellent breakfast. Next to the hotel are small places to eat and nightlife, wifi was fast. The worst thing was probably the hall carpets, which were a little bit dirty.

I stayed in the hotel 2 nights out of my four nights. I only stayed there 2 nights because I read so many terrible reviews and it was the only hotel in the area that was available. My stay there was great! My room was clean, comfortable - and a great value! I had terrific water pressure and plenty of... More
