Good stay here, good breakfast, nice big room, fast wifi and only ten minutes from main train station, would stop again if i visited Cologne again. Just round the corner is an interesting little church, pay 2 euros and go see the room with all the skulls. My main memory of the hotel or lack of memories were caused by... More

Location was excellent-very close to the train station and walking distance to the main parts of town. However, being close to the train station does bring a certain amount of noise with it, but you won't hear it if you close the window, which you can do because they have AC! Beds reasonably comfortable, room is usual size for European... More

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.
