I stayed only night here during May. Late check in and early check out so this will be a brief review. My room was up the stairs behind the reception and felt like someone's apartment. It was quite nice though and the staff was also friendly. I had chosen this hotel as most others were sold out and it was... More

The staff were friendly and extremely helpful, location relative to the city centre is ok, rooms are basic but clean - HOWEVER - the constant flow of trains less than 10 metres from the hotel, including through the night (the morning I left at 3.30am there were three freight trains within the 30 minutes prior) means I would not stay...

Yes, the trains run right in front of your window, and there are quite a few of them - freight trains, ICEs, S-Bahn ... but if you close the window it is not too bad. Noisier was the fan in the bathroom! Room 414 was an especially nice corner rooms with two "wintergardens" (conservatory, well, a kind of glass niche).... More

Stayed at the Hotel Mado in Koln a couple of weeks ago on a weekend visit. Found the hotel value for money and well located. Never found the railway line beside the hotel to be a problems and certainly didn't see any drunken students. Would agree the hotel is not in one of Koln's best area but I didn't feel... More

We have just spent two nights in this hotel but moved for the second two days of our visit. Whilst the hotel was modern, well equipped and furnished with a nice, very quiet sauna and "wellness" suite and served excellent breakfast the unbearable problem was the noise of the trains which passed our window every few minutes. Three railways lines... More

Breakfast was wonderful with a great variety of food which was very tasty. The staff was friendly and helpful. We paid about 70 Euro for one night (it was a weekend-deal) and... More
