Staying here was a mixed experience. + We came by car and the parking option in the hotel basement was very convenient. We had a quiet room away from the street and didn't experience the noise others have complained about. Breakfast was much better than expected. Free tea and coffee in the reception at night. - Stayed in a family... More

Basic hotel at Barbarossaplatz. Can be noisy but this is to be expected if you book a hotel near the inner city ring. Clean room, small bathroom. Great breakfast and free wifi. Very near to the trams. Within a few stops at the main attractions or just walk!

The hotel is clean and has good wifi. It is very small and probably suits those in their 20s as the area Barbarossa Platz is noisy and attracts youths. It is a trip into the main town but transport is efficient and frequent. You really can only sleep in this room . Also make sure if you get a taxi... More

Good location, only a few tram stops from the city centre. Hotel was average, room for 3 was very small. For €110 a night we were expecting 2 double beds, but got 1 and a very hard pull down bed. Breakfast was basic and waitress not very helpful, we asked for more croissants (only 1left for 3 us) but she... More

Stayed 2 nights in December 2013 primarily to visit Cologne's Christmas markets. Was ok to find from the highway with the help of sat nav, some one-way roads & tram lines nearby so need to be a bit careful. Check-in friendly & gave directions to hotel's car park at the rear of the hotel - this is secure but small... More
