The Hotel is located in a small quiet street near the main Shopping Avenue of Cologne and very close a few minutes walk to the known Sightseeing places like Dom Old City aso. Beds in single room are not very large. Brakfast was very good and all the staff very friendly and helpful. No free Wlan or internet

I cannot fault anything about this hotel. Even though we were there in one of the busiest weekends in December, we could check in at 11 am already. The room was quite big and quiet. Breakfast is very decent and even though it was very busy, the lady worked very hard to accomodate us. Location is excellent. In the middle... More

I was here for business. The hotel is nothing special but just ok and affordable. Breakfast is simple but good and the staff helpful. Only downside I think is that there is no free internet. For a next stay I do think I would think about going here again.

Great locations near the main shopping street but yet a very quiet hotel. Breakfast was lovely. Hotel itself is quite dated and the rooms are definitely not a 3 star standard. They are quite shabby and dates with tiles using in bathroom. But it was fine for us!

We’ve stayed in the Sonata hotel 3 or 4 times but sadly it will be our last. When we got room 425 the room has a faint smell of urine. The tub has a folding shower door that hinges on oneside and after my wife took a shower there’s a large amount of water leaked through the restroom and onto... More

Spent 4 nights here. Lovely location - very central. Breakfast was great - lots of cheese, bread, meats, yoghurts and hot food. Bedrooms are good. Bathroom could do with updating and the loo was a bit fragrant - could have done with a bit of cleaner. (we had a family room). Staff spoke English. Would use this hotel again if... More

Perfect location! Especially if you are here for a weekend to shop and visit Christmas Markets. Rooms are specious, a choice of smoking or non smoking, clean and friendly staff! My only comment though, our rooms were facing the busy street, we could hear all the noise from outside pretty late at night until morning. Aside from that, we had... More

This is a basic 3 star hotel. Its main advantage is the location, which is right in the middle of Hohetrasse, Cologne's main pedestrian Street. 5 minutes to the Dom, 7 minutes to the Rein. Other than that I'll have to say it's pretty old and not renovated, stained old rug, no air-conditioning - my room was quite hot in... More
