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

Ideal base for those travelling in and around Köln. Only stayed for a couple of days but clean, modern hotel with friendly staff who speak good English ( we try and muddle through in German, but they replied in English so obviously our German isn't good enough ;-) ) - free wifi that actually works ( though you do need...

This is one of the nicer places we stayed on a limited budget while visiting Europe for 3 weeks. Our room had a nice balcony. The bathroom was the largest of any we had while in Europe. There is a commons area which serves refreshments, provides board games and books for relaxing. It's in a nice clean area close to... More

Great hotel in the leafy suburbs of Cologne. Very clean, very new, very quiet. Slept so long we missed breakfast. Internet wasn't working but we did without it for one night. Stay here if you can ! It is good value for money.

It is in a good position to reach the highway. The breakfast is too expensive but nothing to complain about the food. Unfortunatley there were hair in the sink. Same problem in my colleague's room I suggest to go there only if you are traveling for business

Spent a few days at the Friends hotel, mainly because we were on a tight budget and it was pretty cheap. It is a little far from the city centre, but if you have a rental car (which we did), its ok. Wouldn’t stay here if we didn’t. Rooms are tiny, but clean. Hotel smells like smoke everywhere it seems.... More

According to my experience, the hotel was quite good. My room was clean and bright. The shower room was too small but a person could fit in it. My parents' room was smelling like cigarette horribly!!!!!!! The breakfast was quite good. What i liked most about the hotel was the decoration, was really harmonic and relaxing. It was a long...

I stayed at this hotel because of a review that said the customer service was excellent, and please please stay here. I did, and the service was excellent. The rooms are basic, but have a few nice touches to brighten them up a little. Having said that, for €59.00 per night I think they are a steal. Absolutely spotlessly clean,... More

Usually I'm not the type of person who likes to ask the front desk for a room change. At Friends Hotel, I had to change FIVE times until they got us a room that we could stay in. Trouble was: Since my wife was pregnant, we had booked non-smoking and had the paperwork to prove it. Unfortunately, the hotel was... More
