Stayed for 3 nights to visit the Christmas markets. Hotel is in a convenient location 10 minutes walk from the railway station and cathedral, all the markets are within walking distance. Rooms are nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and most are English speaking. The continental breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice.... More

Expected standard for 3 star hotel. Very clean and very helpful staff. Breakfast very good. If you are going to the shopping area or the cathedral and/or river, perfectly placed!! I would not hesitate to go back!! Only 7-8 minute walk to the centre and less than 1 minute to the river. Martin & Elaine 8-10/12/15

Nice little downtown hotel. Very reasonably priced. Clean and comfortable. Very close to the river and about five minutes walk from the railway station. Access would be difficult for disabled guests. The staff were very nice and helpful and spoke excellent English.

Business trip to fair K+J in September 2015 (2nd time) pros: location (five star!), service, breakfast (five star!), cleanliness, interior, bathroom (small, but nice and bright) cons: strait starcase and elevator, single room is too small (the double room is very comfortable)

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. The owner and staff were very accommodating and the breakfast buffet was beautifully presented with a great variety of delicious breakfast items. The location was great as well. Short walk to the river and the Dome.

An excellent welcome, large room on the second floor (not at all noisy even thought we stayed there on a busy Saturday night), a superb breakfast and an fine location (5 minutes walk from the station and only 2 minutes from the river). A good value for money too.

Due to my own incompetence I booked the wrong night at another hotel nearby and so was stranded in cologne. As luck would have it there was a room available so I took it. The staff were very friendly and for the price the room was fantastic. Very clean and stylishly decorated. The hotel is a short walk from the... More

Our room was lovely, small but clean and large bathroom with rain shower. The owner is accommodating and friendly as you'd expect or he's really made a few errors in his career path. Breakfast is one of the best continentals available for this type of hotel. Lots of options and very fresh ingredients and good strong coffee. So why only... More

Close to town centre (500 m), very friendly staff, excellent breakfast, room was tidy and spicy with an additional sitting area (rm 301) - parking in the near vicinity is expensive although there are parking places at walking distances near the Rhine river at 4 EUR a day.

Absolutely recommended this family-run hotel for its location close to the central station / Dom / Rhein... And for it making you feel right at home! Wonderful breakfast in the morning rounds it all up. Special thanks to the owner who was nice enough to let us change dates last minute although our booking policy did not include this option!
