Location is perfect, on the Rhein River, near Heumarkt, Dom. It is possible walk from/to Hauptbahnhof, even carrying a bag. But the room I've stayed in was very small, hot and on the 3rd floor (stairs). I left the window open to cool but the noise from street was unbearable. Difficult to sleep. The internet wifi is not good.

Situated right on the Rhine, with only a 10minute walk from the main train station or across the bridge over to the other side of the Rhine and only a few minutes with the tram to Colognes night life center, Hotel Lowenbrau is the place to stay. The rooms are small (single rooms have a double bed) but very neat... More

Stayed at this Hotel from June 2nd to 3rd. I had booked the room around 23:00 as I arrived in Köln and went straight to the hotel. I was told by an arab guy that the hotel lobby was only occupied until 20:00 and that If i wanted to stay there I would have to pay almost the double of... More

I was on a motorcycle trip for a week and this hotel had a great location, good but small rooms and nice food. The staff was kind. I really liked taking my breakfast next to the river. Cologne was a lovely last stop on my trip through Germany and France.

Close to Dom / Railway station / Beer museum / shopping streets / view to Rin , clean room, and a very good restaurant with an excellent coffee. Absolutely nothing to complain for a 3 start hotel, except maybe the price (200 Eur /night) - due to positioning (probably) . Must go in restaurant even if you have another hotel... More

We did not stay at the hotel. Stopped at the restaurant in back for lunch with co-workers. Service was so-so. The food was mediocre. The steak special was bone-in but after the bone and fat were removed there was not much meat left. The wiener schnitzel was dry and likely started out frozen. The pizzas were tasty. The view of...

Was here late summer. We had the last room available with view on the Rijn for just 70 euro or so . Room was spacious, and equipped with large flatscreen. Especially the friendliness and the service in the restaurant was fantastic. Location is ideal for sightseeing and shopping.

The area is nice if you like walking on the banks of the river. Otherwise, just not worth staying there. I booked a single bedroom, which has a bed (luckily), a full desk, a chair, and a bathroom, according to the website. The room I was offered had no desk, nor even a small table. Just the room for a... More

Perfect location in Cologne. If you are okay with having to walk a couple blocks with luggage to get to the hotel and then have to carry bags up a few flights of stairs (we were on the 5th floor / top floor) then this is a perfect place to be. The restaurant itself downstairs is nice and has a... More

Do not use this hotel. For one thing it's not especially pleasant (the bathrooms on the other side of the corridor are not properly ventilated and extremely hot and quite grubby). The local carpark is not that local, and the wifi is lousy and expensive. More significantly the management of this hotel are dishonest. I'm currently fighting them for repayment... More
