Good location near the railway station of "Cologne South". Many restaurants and bars around. The Hotel is in a backstreet, so it is not noisy. staff very friednly, breakfast o.K., Room small but with everything you need for a night's sleep.

We stayed in this hotel in July 2013, and paid 170 Euro for a two night stay in a triple room. The hotel is located within walking distance from the train station in a quiet area of Cologne (about 10 minutes away from the City Center). The area is not beautiful but it is very safe, and we enjoyed a... More

This hotel gives excellent breakfast and spacious rooms for the low price charged.. Loved the delicious croissants. Polite and helpful receptionists. Only problem was that one needs to take another local train from the main station in Cologne to the district station Koln Sud and at both these stations either the lifts were not available or not working. So it... More

The hotel is located on a side street, so quiet for the most part. It is in a tall narrow building, with four rooms on each floor. I was on the 4th floor, to which there was a lift. However, there was a 5th floor that required one to use the stairs. The rooms were small, but very adequate. It... More

Our room was very comfy and very large, we had lovely large windows that opened out to the river and looked over he town. They were lovely and warm so a winter stay was fine. Breakfast was full continental and very tasty

The hotel is a simple structure, but confortable. The room fit exactly for two people (maybe a little more space for the cloths would be better); bathroom with all you need and warm water immediately available. The staff is efficient and helpful; the breakfast with a good range of choice. The hotel is walking close to the university and sufficiently... More

Trying to find a decent enough hotel in Koln when the Messe is on is always very difficult - this was a good find, the mature gentleman on reception was really helpful The rooms were adequate rather more than luxurious, but suited our needs Breakfast was fine if rather basic Parking was convenient and restricted

I think that many of the reviews here are fair, it's a low budget hotel, but far from the worst in terms of cleanliness and the location is convenient. However, expensive jewellery went missing from my room on the last day of our stay. I was horrified to discover that the chamber maid's children were allowed to play in the... More

We stayed in the Hotel Elite for one night because most of the other hotels in Cologne were booked during the Photokina exhibition. It's a very basic hotel - small rooms with tile floors, small TV, reasonably comfortable beds and a decent breakfast. Watch what you pay, however - we paid in the 50-60 euro range for one night, but... More
