We arrived by train , just a 4 minute walk from Koeln Hbf, we could leave our bagage and check in later. The Hotel is in a quite street near the station. The rooms are clean and large enough, good (hard) beds and a bathroom with shower and toilet. Complete with soaps etc and hairdryer. We had a good nights... More

This review is late. We stayed in Dec 2012 on a road trip from Munich. We had trouble looking for reasonably priced hotels and was happy to find this that had private parking and near the center of town. As you may know, local hotels in the city center seldom have private parking. That being said, the private parking was... More

We stayed at the Brandenburger Hof from 14 - 19 Feb 2013. We chose it because of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The hotel is in a quiet location ideally situated for getting around central Cologne on foot. About 5 minutes from the Cathedral and start of pedestrian shopping areas, 20 mins from chocolate museum or... More

Stayed at this hotel weekend 1st/2nd February. Booked after positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Pros. Great location (about 5 minutes walk from the main station) and in a quiet street. Spotlessly clean. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Good value at 70 euros for a double room (with tv). Cons. Although the bathroom was small it was immaculately clean and... More

We booked this hotel because it was close to the Cologne Central Railway, but it turned out to be a really great find! The room was comfortable and really soundproofed, and the breakfast was lovely with lots of nice things to eat. The staff were all really helpful and knowledgeable and the Hotel was indeed very well placed in central... More

We stayed for a night at Brandenburger Hof in June 2013. Seeing as we were traveling by train, and were only in Cologne for one night, we wanted a place that was centrally located. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Although the rooms were a bit sparse (no tv/phone), they were clean and comfortable. Perhaps one of the... More

We stayed for three nights to take in the Christmas markets. The staff were very friendly, the room clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was superb and beautifully presented. Location could not have been better. We were made to feel very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This is not a 5 star Marriot, which is just 100 metres away and a good place if you need a taxi. But its a rare hotel - they remember your name, they remember your room number. They remember you like your coffee at the end of breakfast ..... you don't get any of that at a Marriot! The atmosphere... More

Our usual hotel chain choices were either fully booked or had room rates that were rather exorbitant when we were searching online for accommodation in Cologne. We looked at an online booking site and saw this property that was located near Cologne Hbf and had a reasonable room rate. We quickly looked at the reviews here in TA and felt... More
