Great hotel, only 5 minutes walk (if you go in the right direction) from the Haupt Bahn. We had a great first experience, with an extremely friendly, knowledgeable receptionist (Sabrina) who warmly welcomed us, enquired about our trip, checked us in and informed us we had the best room in the hotel. I think we did!! It was a lovely... More

Only 5 minutes walk from the entrance to Cologne (Koln) main railway station. Friendly and efficient check-in, comfortable spacious room, excellent breakfast with first-rate service. It's rare to find a hotel with a notice in the breakfast room offering gluten-free bread; two fresh gluten-free rolls and a plate of meat were provided within 10 minutes of asking. 10/10 in every...

Stayed for a couple of nights after finding the hotel on the internet and it looked like a good value option. It's located a short walk from the Hauptbahnhoff, very central. On arrival, staff are really nice and helpful. I asked for a quiet room and was not disappointed. Nothing flashy, but everything you need for a comfortable stay. Clean,... More

For the standard rooms: Decorations are a bit strange, specially that odd pictures in each room, a little bit small, and no air conditioning, so if it's a hot day it's pretty bad. But clean, good location, quite, and has a really good breakfast.

Stayed here at beginning of June, hotel a few minutes from station and most attractions easily within walking distance. Room was a standard single room which I thought could easily fit a double bed , nice and clean hotel and friendly staff made for a pleasant stay, only gripe was the bed pillow I prefere them with more substance.

We spent a weekend I Cologne with my husband. The regular room was ok, small and a little worn down but ok for sleeping. The staff was nice and the breakfast was very good. Distance to the train station and the city center was prefect.

We had booked a regular room which was clean and comfortable, although a little eccentrically decorated. After the first night we paid an additional 20 Euros to upgrade to the comfort room which was so very worth it. The decor, AC, space, bathroom, etc, was excellent and we loved it and would definitely return. The hotel also has a very... More

Stayed for three nights in a comfort room. A very pleasant hotel. The breakfast was more than adequate, anyone complaining about it needs a reality check. Our room was of reasonable size, quiet and the bed was comfortable. Staff were polite and efficient. No noise problems in our room, just ensure you are not in a cheaper room on the... More
