We stayed at this hotel to discover the Christmas Markets in Cologne for the first few days of December. We arrived at the hotel to drop our bags off and were greeted by a friendly receptionist who easily overcame my initial attempts at speaking German. Check in was simple and straightforward. Our room on the 6th floor was pleasant with... More

If you are going to invoke the name of the genius who foresaw submarines and helicopters by several centuries, and who created the Sistine Chapel as well as some of the most breathtaking sculptures in history as your hotel name, it would seem reasonable to try to create something more visionary than the tired, listless unimaginative object. To be fair,... More

This hotel can not be recommended at all. Not only the cleaning seems to be rather seldom, also the smell in the non-smoking room would not disappear with an open window. Open window is not a good idea due to the traffic of the close by highway. Parking at 10 Euro a night, slow internet at even higher rate with... More

this hotel sells "heigh-speed-connection" for 15,90 € per day (October 2014). I booked it and was dissappointed about the extremly slow connection. Asking for a refund at the reception they told me to get in contact with the internet provider instead of the hotel. Eventhough the rest of the service was average this experience and weak customer support ruins the... More

We stayed here for a week and we definitely felt that we wished we'd book another hotel. The rooms are very small and looking very average. The bathroom was always smelling like smoke for some reason and sometimes it would smell in the room as well. The hotel does not offer free wifi, and for just a few hours or... More

I stayed at this hotel for attending a conference in Koln. First of all the hotel did not have wifi in the room - in this day and age not having wifi in the room, especially for business travellers like me, is extremely inconvenient. They provided me with a wired Internet code - however the receptionist did not tell me... More

I have stayed here 3 times now for business and it's a decent hotel for all of Koln's sites, just hop on the tram at the end of the road and into centre of town in about 10 mins, not a huge amount of amenities in walking distance, but the Hotel is a good base with decent rooms & service

We had a nice stay at this hotel, staff where very friendly and it was within a 5 minute tram ride to the main part of town. We did not have the breakfast option but it did look very good. The only bad thing was the wifi. As it was not free we paid €30 for it for the weekend... More

Pretty simple and basic hotel with smaller rooms and without any special decor or art. No scenic views from the window, really close to the highway so do expect noise from the passing cars. Breakfast was decent, and on the plus side, there's an indoor pool that's actually quite OK, didn't expect that based on the rest of the hotel.... More
