The hotel was centrally located only a 10 minute walk into cologne city centre, close to the hotel there were plenty of restaurants and coffee shops.

It was fine. Staff were very helpful and sorted out a room swap. My stay was short as I was delayed, but I can confirm the bed was comfortable and ensuite clean. I used the after 11 checkin facility as arrived at about 3 am. I did not stay for breakfast so cannot comment. Two stations are within walking distance.

Booked as a party of 8 to visit the German markets. Hotel was excellent, good clean rooms, decent variety for breakfast, handy transport links, just what you want for a short stay. WE arrived early and thought we would have to wait for the rooms but checked in early to allow us more time to shop - great. Hotel staff... More

You can only speak as you find - and we found everything was to our liking, and there have been more improvements since our last visit 3 years ago. It's clean, comfortable, friendly and in a very convenient location for the Deutz Messe train station and tram stops although it's an easy walk into the central district too. Yes this... More

Not the best location, but is close to a train station. Not the best bathroons (no doors in the shower, bathroom gets wet after sower), no breakfast included. But the staff is great.

It's a very good hotel for those who are staying few days in Cologne. Comfortable, good breakfest,near bakeries and restaurants. For the football fans, it is near Lanxess arena. The Wi-Fi/WLAN is also of good quality and free-cost. The service is fine, and the staff is friendly and receptive. The only problem: Stairs. If you have heavy luggage, prepare yourself.

I stayed here for 3 nights during the Cologne Carnival and paid Eur 450 in total for my stay. At this price, the hotel is not worth it. But at their standard price of Eur22 per night, it may well be.

Nice hotel with friendly staff. Room was small but clean. I was glad we were on the first floor as there was no lift. Bit of a struggle with suitcases. Breakfast was in the annexe hotel around the corner. Poor hot breakfast, cold buffet acceptable but not worth the money. Cheaper options in the same street. Close to the Arena... More
