Nice small hotel in the old town of Cologne. Clean and modern rooms with good beds. We stayed in a room for 3 people. A double bed and a single (proper) bed. The room wasn't very large but perfect for one night. Public transport nearby and walking distance to the Dome and the Lanxess Arena and shopping areas. No airconditioning.... More

I wouldn't take my family there, it's a business trip hotel in character. rooms are small, but that's Europe... Other than that, clean & tidy, nice furniture, quiet, nice breakfast. Good service. 10 min from the central train station and cathedral. Price goes up when there is a conference nearby (every couple of weeks). Going to Dusseldorf takes about 45... More

Located within walking distance of city center and the river, this hotel served our needs very well. Below ground parking for a fee served our automobile concerns. The room was nicely appointed and the bath was very modern and convenient. The amazing feature was the free use of the other Hotel Mauritius' Spa just a short tram ride away. This... More

The hotel is somewhat old fashioned, some have said the rooms were refurbished. Mine must have been circa 1988! There was also a damp smell too Reception isn't manned in the week & when I returned on the sunday evening (well early hours!), there was some random gentleman sleeping on reception floor! There were a number of issues when we... More

This is one of the better 3 star hotels I have been visiting. The rooms are very well furnished and modern. The beds are comfortable and provide a good slide. The breakfast is small, but you will find anything you need. The reception personell is nice and very helpful in finding restaurants and helping you to find your way around... More

My family and I stayed here on an overnight trip to Cologne. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the cathedral, and suited us as we walked most places. The room was not very big as we were sharing with our son and a 3rd bed was making the room cramped, the bathroom was pretty tight for space also.... More

Location being the most important factor when choosing a hotel,the group of us (8) travelling together were disappointed with this hotel. Although technically in the "Altstadt" it was definitely the wrong side of the tramlines in a very featureless street (and yes as another reviewer pointed out gay sex-shop close at hand). The rooms had been refurbished in a characterless... More

My friends and I stayed at this hotel last weekend, during our overnight trip to Cologne, and were pleased with our choice. We were looking for a hotel that was inexpensive but close to the old city center and found that this hotel had the best price and was only a short 5 min walk to the Dom Cathedral, shopping,... More

Old fashioned hotel in a walking distance to the centrum. Small rooms, quite clean but with very poor soundproofing. Staff was rather impolite. Overprised and generally inadequate, I wouldn't stay there again.

This hotel is in a good situation- handy for the town and the exhibition centre but the single rooms are cupboard sized. Very nice staff though and a good breakfast. Great shower in the tiny bathroom. Also some reasonable restaurants in walking distance - the little Greek place nearby is good
