The strong points of this hotel are its location, breakfast and price. The hotel is a short walk (100 metres) from rear of train station; no problem even with baggage. It is a short walk to the Cathedral and the old town and there is the option to stroll along the Rhine. Despite the proximity to the centre the hotel... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times before. Leave the hauptbahnhof by the Breslauer Platz exit and turn left. there are several exits from the U-bahn and you are looking for the only one on the other side of the road. Domstrasse is behind it. The hotel is on the right hand side, beware there is an hotel with... More

Short review but i got one of my best hotel rooms ever with separate tv/reading/study area, great fit out at an amazing price. Staff could not have been any nicer or more helpful. I have tried to stay here since but it was booked out each time.

I spent 4 nights in this hotel. The location is very good, near the Hauptbahnhof, but on the opposite side to the Dom. The staff is very friendly, and they help you with anything you need. The room was clean and ok. The breakfast was superb, a lot of options, and of good quality. Wifi worked good too, although you... More

We stayed on night in this hotel and where very satisfied. We had to check in at another hotel just down the street. The place is located just around the corner from the main train station, and not fare from the city center.

After a very long train journey we finally arrived late to Hotel Domstern. The man on reception could not have been more helpful. Tired and hungry, the welcome cake and chocolate waiting for us in our room was much appreciated. He also recommended a super bar/restaurant for dinner that evening. Breakfast was really good, with a varied selection on offer.... More

Stayed in the hotel for our 30 wedding anniversary, and our first visit to the Christmas markets. The hotel staff was so helpful, I can't praise them enough. Breakfast was lovely and we will definitely return there. The hotel is located near to colognes main rail station. You walk through the station and cologne cathedral is right in front of... More

Hotel is a 5 minutes walk from Koln's railway station, in a district with plenty of hotels but very quite. It is therefore also very close to the Dom and to the historical dowtown, in a perfect location. It's a small hotel of less than 20 rooms, which are not very big but modern and cozy. Breakfast is a big... More

Like a previous reviewer I also research the hotels I wish to stay at when taking a vacation. The Domstern fitted the bill. On arrival I was informed that we were NOT booked into the Domstern but had been passed on to the DomSpitzen, part of the same chain. If I book a hotel I do not expect to be... More

This is the second time we have stayed in this hotel - last time was five years ago when our sons were younger and we stayed in a family room. This time, since our sons are teenagers, we decided to book two rooms. A twin for the boys and a double for us. The boys room was okay but ours... More
