The hotel is located within walking distance of the Altstadt and the main train station, approximately 15 mins away, but I wouldn't recommend walking so far with luggage. The taxis to and from the main station cost us 11 and 12 euros, respectively. The room was basic, and we were given beds on opposite sides of the room, but it... More

I really liked the hotel, cause it was really convenient located, you could walk a few minutes only and you could be in the old city in a few minutes. Really clean and very friendly staff. Value for money. I would recommend it and I would definitely choose it again.

I really liked the hotel, because of its excellent location, friendly staff and good atmosphere. It is a budget hotel, but it could be a very good hotel is some negative aspects would be mended. The wifi system is vintage, and it is a hassle to use tickets for each device in order to find out that internet connection behind... More

Yes, it's a budget friendly hotel on the other side of the river (It'll take about 30-40 min walk to the Dom area, that includes the bridge with some great views) Friendly staff, family type breakfast. Rooms were small but somewhat clean. Used to have very decent wi-fi internet connection. There is no parking, you would need to find a... More

We were told to move to the other building called "Deutzer Eck" which we were not expecting since we booked Alt Deutz. It was also so hot but the room had no fan, had no idea we had to share the bathroom with other guests until we got there. Talking of which, the shower drain was blocked but the staff... More

Hotel well located to walk easily to Lanxness Arena - also has good transport links to City and Airport. Staff were helpful and free fruit in reception was a nice touch. Excellent buffet breakfast worth adding on. Remember to allow for tourist tax that is added to bill.

I've been staying in the Alt Deutz with my wife. The price for our double room was very fair and good value for money. We had fresh fruits and a bottle of water every day. Wifi was a free of charge as well. We especially enjoyed the breakfast at the annex of the hotel. Very good choice of cold cut... More

Staff friendly. Had a bit of a hike to our room up lots of stairs. Room dated but bathroom and bedding clean, free bottled water left in room came in handy. Breakfast was good, something for everyone. Hotel is a few steps away from shops, bakeries etc and short walk to tram stop.

In the period we booked we had not so much choice, Cologne was overbooked due a tradeshow in our Industry. The check in was uncomfortable, the door was closed and there was no reception.
