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!

The location is great, just a few minutes walk from the central station and the Kölner Dom, main attraction of the city. Also the Rhein river is just around the corner. The hotel is small and clean, spatious room (nr 30) or "flat" with 2 rooms. Everything worked well and the free internet was fast and efficient. Breakfast was very... More

OK Let's start with an honest review of the hotel itself, which if you are travelling by train/bus/plane/taxi. This is a small "boutique" type hotel which has been done out in the austere/minimalist rather than the - say- quirky style popular in some of these. To this extent is it very "sharp" white and clean and tidy. The room furniture... More

The hotel is a nice little place just 5 minute walk away from Cologne central station. It's in a calm street and the rhine is about 50m away. The rooms are spacious and tidy, with nice oldfashioned furniture. They have free wifi and a very good breakfast with a great variety of food. So why not 5 stars ? Because... More

It's a quaint hotel on a quiet side street of downtown Cologne. It's close enough to the train station to walk, but it's far enough where you don't hear trains all the time. It was kind of confusing to find at first. The staff is friendly and everything was clean. It does have a small elevator and the room was... More
