Keeping the price per room in mind, this is an excellent choice. The room was clean and quite modern. The staff is really friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is available for free (although a data usage limit applies, but I am pretty sure the staff would be happy to extend it for you if you just ask). The location is not... More

Well, this claims to be a design hotel but if that's the case then so is my shed. But then I do have a nice shed. Everything is slightly worn but it's absolutely fine, comfortable beds and good showers and wifi, which is what you need really. No a/c but windows you can actually open, which I like. Good breakfast... More

We had a great stay at the Friends Hotel in Cologne. The prize is very good seen the quality. Room is not very big but it was very clean. The bathroom was rather small but also very clean. Only downpoint was that the coffeemachine didn't work. And that breakfast is a little overprized. That was 12.50€ a day per person.... More

During a fast eurotrip, found this place with character... Like a small flat but with the hotel benefits! Might not have the greatest view, but room dont wanna make you leave! The double shower part is must. Not far from city center, quite , and clean.

'Disappointed' isn't a word that I like to use often but on this occasion, I feel I must. Having made a long and somewhat sleepless, overseas journey from the UK to Cologne with two great friends, I arrived at this hotel. I was eager to rest my weary head for a few hours before meeting up for a pre-birthday celebration... More

We visited here in February 2015 and as it was my birthday they kindly upgraded our room. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. Very helpful and friendly staff who go out of their way. Had a very nice stay here and will return

On arrival, we were told that we only booked 2 singles instead of 1 single 1 double. After this being resolved, we were given our rooms. Within minutes, our friend reported dirty towels, leftover pizza etc in his room. Obviously miscommunication between housekeeping and front desk. He was given another room...a smaller one than the original one. I would have... More

This is a great medium sized, boutique hotel in a small suburb of Cologne (about 15min drive from city center). The hotel is inside an unassuming building (probably refurbished) but looks great inside, with a nice lobby and large breakfast restaurant. The distance makes it necessary to drive to Cologne if you want to go explore downtown or need to... More

My husband and I recently stayed for 1 night while travelling through Europe. It was very clean and our room was quite big. For some reason we had a normal double room which connected to a children's room with bunkbed and toys (more space is always good, but it was odd). Unfortunately, a very bright floodlight shone directly into our... More

This is a great small hotel which is located just on the periphery of Cologne. Very friendly staff, modern rooms including a brilliant bathroom and coffee machine. I am just sat in this bar typing this review, so wi-fi works great and is free. Stunning bar and good Italian restaurant next door. Nothing to complaint about, I would stay here... More
