This is definitely a boutique hotel! The hotel and our room were small, but we expected that from the pictures. Also, the window in our room was huge, so we didn't mind the size. The hotel is full of modern art, and our room was styled very well, too. There is no air conditioning, but the room stayed very cool.... More

The location is excellent. Near the shopping streets, the train station and lots of bars and restaurants. We got a newly refurbished room. Nice beds. Lots of electric sockets and good but not dimmable (strange?) LED lighting. But the architect had put in a window between the bath and the room. I have seen it before and it is really... More

While the hotel is close to the cathedral, it's worth it to stay somewhere else. The older man that checked us in had the personality of a corpse. There were towels laid all over the hallways and stairs as if they had a major leak. No matter how much we tried we could not get hot water in our room.... More

The hotel has excellent location, the rooms are big and very clean although the decoration is very old. I loved the shampoo provided. The wifi was not very good, at least in my room, but overall I would definitely recommend and go back.

Have stayed there during an exhibition for 10 years now. Small rooms, but perfect cleaned and nice and very correct personnel. Breakfast did cost extra but was really worth the money. The only negative I can tell is a very slow Internet. The location could not be more perfect for exploring Cologne!

I stayed here for 1 night on a business trip. The hotel is very close to the city center, Catherdral, central station and a 5-7 minute walk from the tram stops. The breakfast was good and the staff was friendly. I slept well for 4 hours after which I could hear noises from the street, but it was not too... More

It's basic. My single room was very, very small with one of those shower room plastic moulds things, like in airplanes. As it was Saturday night and my room faced the street, it was also very noisy from the bar next door. However, the service was really friendly, the breakfast was superb, and the location is fantastic, really close to... More

Walking distance to the trainstation and main musuems. Still, bring a detailed map because the street may be a bit hard to find. A small hotel dating from the 70's but very clean, comfortable, nice and generally unbeatable at this price. Very convenient for 1 night on business trip. They have wi-fi but it's a bit slow (especially 4th floor).

We were looking for a room that would suit 3 adults and fell on this hotel. Just steps away from the center, it was a sweet deal! The room was spacious and comfortable enough with an en suite to another cozy bedroom for one person. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was pretty good considering that we only...
