Stayed there for a week over a recent trade fair. While the rooms were clean the only other thing going for it was the Location. I think normally the hotel is a good low priced hotel during this particular time the cost per night was around €200 and for this money there are going to be better options even if... More

Awful service and front desk are liars. Do not stay here---they do not care or appreciate American business. They disagree and cannot substantiate their story. Be prepared to file chargebacks with the credit card company. Terrible experience

The rooms were quite a bit more tiny than displayed in the pictures. If you don't mind hearing church bells in the background at all hours, then I would suggest you to stay here. For the most part, our stay here was quiet and enjoyable. It is a great location to see all of central cologne and as soon as... More

I stayed here two nights in June... simple, but clean. elevator, no AC, but a fan is available. I didn't have the breakfast, only coffee, but it looked good (addition price). Very convenient location to the train station, the old city, and the Rhine river. Friendly and helpful staff.

Stayed here for 3 days, we arrived in Cologne without having any accommodation, we parked the car and proceeded to find some accommodation. After getting prices from a couple of hotels ranging upto 370E per night, we were offered a room for 68E per night including breakfast, what an absolute bargain,. The room was very nice and a reasonable size... More

I booked 3 rooms for myself and colleagues, from the price paid expectations were very low but I wasn't to disappointed. Reception was friendly the rooms were clean although the shower could have been better, the mini bar was well stocked. Breakfast was OK and the restaurant seemed very popular although we didn't try it. The position of the hotel... More

We have just got back from a Christmas market tour, staying in the Central am Dom was really good value. Apart from getting there on a Sunday where all the shops were open as in December they do, we found it hard to get parked, after Sunday it was easy in the Dom parking , underground.

Entrance of the hotel is good, promising maybe. I thought to myself, this isn't looking that bad. However when I had to walk to my room I had to walk through a very small corridoor, passing 2 kitchens/restaurants. The room itself was ok, bit smelly. Bed was fine. Shower was small, but working good. I wouldn't immediately advice this hotel... More

Stayed in this hotel in Sept’13. What a disaster! The hotel has 3 stars rating, in fact it should not be rated at all. Booked 5 months ahead. Unprofessional and unfriendly reception. Room on the 4th floor very small, uncomfortable, with 2 separate small single beds of totally poor quality. The booking mentioned “Bright room”, in fact it was ugly!... More

When i read the reviews here, i told myself i would never sleep in a dump like that. But as it was just for one night (we had a plane to catch very early in the morning) i decided to give it a try. And it was quite okay, regarding the 53,90 € we paid. Room was small but clean,... More
