Helpful staff. Nick was particularly friendly. Lady on the night shifts let the side down a bit. Very comfortable beds and rooms kept nice and clean. Bar was a nice facility but not very big so more than 2 or 3 groups at a time is a squeeze. Good wifi worked throughout the building with very easy connectivity.

This is as close to hotel as hostel can be. The short girl on the front desk with brown hair and the young guy nick were brilliant on the front desk. The rooms were very clean and the price was OK we paid around £40 each and there was ten of us. I paid a 150 euro deposit on a... More

The rooms were very good value for money. My room looked out on the park. Everything clean and well taken care off. Free wifi, with a computer in the lobby. The hotel is close to Rudolfplatz, from which buses, taxis and trams take you everywhere in the city. Rudolfplatz itself hosts the nicest little Christmas market, from late November until... More

My Wife & I now 30 stayed here and felt like we were backpacking Europe again. Except this time we had our own room looking over the street, not too noisy. The hotel was perfect for us with our own bathroom, not too expensive, with friendly staff. It was in a great location with plenty of cool little bars and... More

Stayed here in September 2014 for one night whilst passing through Cologne. Hotel is located near the city centre, only a short tram ride or walk from Neumarkt. Easy check in experience and good service on arrival, despite the hotel lobby area being busy. Had a single room facing the main road which was slightly noisy but nothing that disturbed... More
