I stayed one night in a family suite. The location is fantastic - right in the thick of things next to the cathedral and also the Christmas market if you are there at that time of year. Parking might be an issue although there is overnight street parking in front of the hotel and we got very lucky. The room... More

Staff are great and very helpful with tips for shopping, parking etc, Great location 2 mins from the city centre, easy walking distance. Rooms are basic but good value for the centre of a major city. We had shared bathroom facilities and these were probably the worst thing about the Hotel. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice, be aware... More

Really nice hotel with extremely friendly staff. They took my luggage and looked after it till my room was ready as I arrived very early. The room was basic but very clean, I shared a bathroom and all of the facilities were clean and pleasant enough. Only a 2 minute walk to the station and under 10 minutes to the... More

I stayed for one night in a single room with shared bathroom. The room (#19) was on the 2nd floor, as others have noted there is no elevator in the hotel, but not an issue for those capable of carrying luggage. The room was very small and basic - somewhat reminiscent of university accommodation, with a single bed, washbasin and... More

My sister and I spent five nights in Brandenburger Hof during a pre-Christmas break in Cologne. The place is very conveniently located just 2 min walk from central station and the cathedral (we had a view of cathedral towers from our window!) We were greeted by very friendly and knowledgeable team who shared some tips on places to see, bars... More

Stayed here for two nights, couldn't have possibly found a more convenient place to stay in Cologne centre. 2 min from the train station was a big plus as we arrived late at the first night, to be greeted by the very friendly staff. The breakfast, described in detail by some previous reviews, was quite extensive and tasty. As for... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in autumn weather. Pros: - Extremely friendly people - Amazing buffet for the price (all cold except for toast, hot drinks and the obligatory German style boiled egg, but very good choice of cereal, cheeses, meats, sweets, spreads and jams, breads and rolls, yoghurts, veggies, fruit, drinks..) - Simple, clean, functional, modern look - Very...

We arrived in Koln by train and took a train to Amsterdam after 3 day stay, It's within walking distance from train station, shopping district (you'll love it), restaurants and Cologne Cathedral.
