Room clean and spacious but smelt damp and was a bit dark. 15 mins walk to Cathedral but interesting, with lots to see on the way. Breakfast in a different building but just around the corner and a good Buffett. Hotel is in a nice enough area, no parking but they recommend a secure multi storey, which you have to... More

Stayed here during the Gamescom convention in August 2014. City is always very busy so accommodation is usually bumped up a bit. However I paid €190 per night for a tiny and very basic single room. At €50 it would probably have been okay but as the room was so small, and the furnishings basic and tatty, €190 was way... More

The hotel is deceptive as it is split into several annexes. It is a great value hotel set in a very nice location close to the rhein with lots of local amenities.

This is is a great value hotel. The location is fine, the main attractions are just a walk over the bridge. The hotel is clean and the breakfast was as good as any of the pricier hotels we had stayed in in Germany. Our room was small but comfortable, no complaints.

Excellent hotel with great breakfast, nice staff but strange price policy. I stay there at least once per month and I should expect some frequent guest program. Some of the rooms are great, some ground floor rooms need to be more sound proof.

The hotel has 2 buildings very close to each other, don't just look at the pictures make sure you ask which building your room will be and check the room. It is close to the train station (which is one stop from the main station) and 20-25 minutes walk to Kölner Dom/center over the bridge. The rooms are tidy, clean... More
