Upon entering the Lowenbrau restaurant one is instantly charmed! We booked this hotel on a whim for one night and wished we had more time to stay, the staff was helpful in our late check in and early check out by having the staff at the restaurant grant us our keys. Although we had a few flights of stairs and... More

Good service and very good restaurant. Strange enough the breakfast is more expensive for people that stay in the hotel, for people having breakfast but sleeping some where else pay 2 euro less. There can be noise from the streets, but this depënds on location of your window, windows facing riverside are fine.

We were with another couple and after checking the drinks menu (Whiskey was €3.95) we ordered two beers and two whiskey and cokes. We had four drinks each over the next three hours and then... More

Whilst visiting cologne for 3 days we dined at the restaurant in this hotel for 2 consecutive nights. Located in the pretty Altstadt right beside the Rhein it is an enviable setting. The waiting staff were very polite and welcoming. The food was served very quickly and very hot! A good variety on the menu. After the first night we... More

We had a such a nice room it had a nice view. There is good restaurant on downstairs. Stuff was okay. The location of the hotel is awesome. Only bad thing is they are selling internet for 24 hours you should pay 5 euros for each person.

Someone else booked this for us based on location and price. We had read reviews complaining about the noise. As we were there in October, the noise level was minimal. There are a number of hotels with outdoor restaurants on the block and a number of drinking establishments, so I can understand how it may be noisy late at night,... More

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. The room is very small. The place is very noise. You have to paid 5 euros a day for internet, and if you for example have a phone and a computer, you can only connect one of them. I spent 20 euros on internet, because i'm going to stay for... More
