As others have said the location is spot on - right by the cathedral, the train station and the departure point for the tour buses and the land train to the zoo. At first sight the hotel is quite dated - think 1980's business trip (trouser press, plastic orchids etc). But everything about the service was spot on. The housekeeping... More

Sitiated directly between the dome and the main pedestrian street. Clean rooms. Excellent service. Familyowned so nothing fancy. Kind and clean. Limited facilities. If you are lookung for a vast lobby large bar etc this is not the place for you. A hotel to save for future.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The location is perfect, a couple minutes walk from the HBF and the cathedral. Right in the centre of the main shopping area and still nice and quiet in the rooms. Breakfast is nice, a good selection of fresh fruit, cold meats, cheese, eggs, bacon and breads. Staff were very friendly and professional.... More

This hotel is perfectly located for a city trip to Cologne. The hotel itself is just around the corner from the Dom Cathedral and the 4711 store. The rooms are not huge but adequately proportioned. There is a small bar in the lobby and the on duty manager is always on hand for recommendations on what to do in Cologne.... More

If you have never been to Cologne, prepare yourself fot crowds and high prices. The hotel is 2 blocks from Ma,in station (there are 2 stations) 1 block from the Dom, and in the middle of the shopping area, You can reach the Rhine and boats by walking 5 blocks down the hill. The hotel is very German with lots... More

A nice enough, middle of the range hotel. Decor looking slightly dated but staff are courteous and breakfast is good. Location is very convenient, close to the train station, shopping malls and, in winter, the Christmas markets. Our only problem was arriving at 6am and being told check in would be at 3pm.

We arrived at the hotel and indeed did not find a parking space to check in. My husband stayed in the car while I walked in. The guy at the reception did not even notice me and so no greating or welcome. Another guy walked in and asked if he could help me. I had to fill in a tourist... More

We stayed at this hotel during the famous Christmas markets. It's located in the centre of Cologne and the 'Dom' is just around the corner. When staying in this hotel, you can easily explore Cologne in walking distance. When you come by car, they have an agreement with one of the many parkingplaces wich give you 25% discount at the...

We booked a quiet room with walking shower and that is exactly what we got so no problem there. Admittedly the room was average size but the double bed (2 singles together) was extremely comfortable as were the pillows and it was clean. The bathroom was small but had everything you needed and plenty of towels and hairdryer. We thought... More
