Bright, clean hotel with a lovely view of the lake. Close to the tram stop with a ten minute trip into Heumarkt and the centre. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice, the restaurant in the evening was limited and the service was not rapid, partly secondary to a big group having pre-booked.

This hotel was most acceptable. The staff were very friendly and made a point of being available if you had any concerns. The room was quite comfortable with all the necessary facilities available. The buffet breakfast provided a wide selection of well presented food. Convenient access to the city centre.

Nice comfortable room with beautiful view of lake. Friendly, helpful staff and good breakfast. Good location with nearby tram stops. Parking was good but costly at 15 euros per day. Excellent variety and quality breakfast

Wonderful view out of the window, clean, good standard, great food. But a little too expensive. It's look from the outside is not best, it reminds me of Polish People's Republic, and this is not a good thing. But interior is much more friendly, but still some things are definitly old. Not worth it's price, but nice. I'd stay here... More

I was staying in Cologne on business. The hotel is far from the main city, but is quiet and relaxing. The back of the hotel faces a lake and park, so is very picturesque. The rooms are clean and comfortable and I enjoyed my stay. The staff are very helpful, when you need something. My first room had a broken... More

I think the last time I stayed here it was, maybe a Holiday Inn? The brand has changed, but it's still the same hotel, and this time around it struck me as a little bit of a time warp. The amenities, and even the furnishings, are sort of Holiday-Innish (they strike you as kind of American, mostly), but it's like... More

Having booked this hotel via a well known website with good reviews, my wife and I were impressed when entering the secure car park. The reception area was plush and the staff spoke very good English and were very professional. Our room, overlooking the beautiful lake with high fountain was quite luxurious having all the amenities we could wish for.... More

Stayed here for a weekend trip to see the Christmas markets in Koln. Really nice staff, clean and spacious non-smoking room, comfortable bed, good bathroom. Lucky enough to have a room overlooking the lake which was beautiful. Short walk to the tram stop which takes you into the city, took around 10-15 mins. We only had room service food on... More

Spent two nights here whilst attending meetings nearby. Proximity to meeting venue main reason for choice, but not a good choice for visiting Altstadt. The hotel is good for a short stay. A friendly welcome at reception is always a good start. The room was functional, reasonably quiet, with a comfy double bed but barely adequate single duvet. Breakfast was... More
