The room smelled and was not cleaned. The sink was clogged and unusable from a guest previous that had thrown up in the sink. Customer service and staff was non-existent, staff was awful and rude, barely spoke German or English. The staff blamed us for the sub-par facilities and did not let us talk to the manager or come down... More

Basic budget hotel. Clean large quiet rooms and comfortable beds, but weak to unusable wi-fi signal on the 3rd floor. The staff were welcoming and friendly. Breakfast OK and included in the price - but why do so many hotels put cornflakes in large open bowls so they go stale - what is wrong with the box ?

Stayed two nights. Room was small but well equipped and very clean. Breakfast was acceptable but the staff need training on how to look after guests. A little out of centre - taxi was 15 euros at midnight. Would stay again.

The hotel is located quite close to the University, which was a plus for me. Even otherwise, there is an U-bahn stop close to the hotel, hence connectivity is quite good. The hotel is old, and looks like it could do with some overhauling. The staff were not particularly hospitable. They were not rude, but their behaviour could do with... More

Hotel was a long way out from City centre. (30-45min walk) Tram stop is near the hotel and takes about 15mins to get in to town. Room was very small and very noisy. The hotel has managed to fit a lot of rooms in to a very small space. Room and bathroom were clean. Breakfast was not good, very basis... More

There is nothing of note in this hotel. They had wifi, location was convenient enough with access to the s-bahn, rooms were ok. Staff was often not around which was annoying, but I guess it is a small family-run affair. It does the job but seemed a bit overpriced (I would thought 70EUR instead of 90EUR to be honest). No...

Stayed here for a weekend break, to go to Cologne christmas markets. On arrival receptionist not very welcoming made us feel that we were imposing on her. We had booked 2 rooms online and she seemed to have trouble finding our booking. Once we had booked in she then informed us that the credit card machine was not working so... More

We booked four rooms for eight nights at the Collette for our team attending a trade show. This was quite possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The entrance is from the street to the staircase, and anyone can walk in. The rooms are 'mean' in every respect. The place is not welcoming in any way. The batteries... More

This hotel is very well reachable by public transport. Just be carful about the constraction of the U-bahn, the lines are different every fortnight. From the pictures the rooms are all right, good value, but there is 1 exception, room no. 1 in the garden. Don´t get yourfelf accomodated there in winter, there is just a gas heating which is...
