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...

The hotel is a short walk from the train station. It was clean, the staff was friendly and professional, and the breakfast was outstanding. The room was clean and airy. Should we find ourselves in Köln again, we'd be back.

We stayed here for a total of probably ten days so we got to know the place and the staff quite well. This hotel is basic. No fancy tv or fabulous decor. Smallish very clean rooms that are five minutes walk from the subway and the train station and only about a ten minute walk to the Cologne cathedral. The... More

It's hard to find a decent hotel near any major European train station, but this one is surprisingly comfortable and quiet and located on a little-traveled side street within walking distance of he hauptbahnhof. It's showing its age just a bit but it's very clean and the rooms are comfortable. Staff is most helpful and the breakfast is very good.... More
