This is very much a "no frills" hotel but for the price you pay it's excellent value for money. It's clean and quiet and convenient for the city centre (about 15 mins walk, straight down the road). If all you need is a decent base whilst exploring Cologne with all the hotel basics in place then this place is highly... More

Overall hotel is nice for what I paid I was surprised with the amenities. There was never a language barrier with office staff and we were always treated fairly etc. I will say the cleaning staff isn't as sociable. When we had difficulty speaking a little german (asking where to give previous night dirty towels to) We got scoffed at... More

I stayed here in March 2015 with a ten strong group of gents for a stag do. This price I paid was cheap. As in really cheap; and thus I had very low expectations indeed. I was pleasantly surprised I must say. The room I had was very small and very basic but it had an en suite which was... More

The hotel and rooms were clean, tidy & no frills. Reception was business like and a little brusk, but that wasn't an issue & made check-in/out quick & easy. The room was exceptionally quiet and of a decent size. Close enough to an underground station to be useful for anyone wanting to explore Cologne. The Cathedral is only a short... More

We stayed there for 2 nights in double room. It was spacious enough, very clean with simple but comfortable furniture. Nice bathroom with hangers and shelfs for cosmetics. I was very surprised when I opened the wardrobe and I found inside... small kitchen with sink, gas stove, cups, plates and even sponge and washing liquid. The room was cleaned every... More

I found the hotel nice: it was clean, staff was helpful, but the front desk was a bit too straightforward, but never rude or disrespectful, room was nice and everything went on as planned. However, I found it a bit far from the main attractions in Cologne. If you like to do most things within walking distance, I don't think... More

We came to town for the Christmas markets & this hotel was perfectly located for access to all of the markets. This, despite it being approximately 15mins walk from the central train station. At €49 per night, we were definitely happy with the facilities available. The room was large & spacious. The bed was massive, & there was even a... More

Situated at a 15-20 minutes walking to the Koln Hbf(the central railway station) ,this little hotel is a good choice if you look for a clean but not very expensive ,though not very big room. The reception personnel speak english and are very friendly. At walking distance(about 700-800m) is another train station,Koln West and also a tram station at about... More

Hotel Storch is clean and budget friendly. Our room was a very good size and quiet. It's near a lovely park which follows one of the ring roads around the old city. Lots of cafés and bars nearby. It's about a 20min walk to the main train station. There is no lift so ask to stay on a lower floor... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Room is average size and have no complaints about the staff or service. Everything here is a bit weird though, strange LED lights above the bed, mental crazy decor in the room and hotel in general. Bit creepy but better than a traditional boring hotel. Decent location, 10 to 15 mins walk to the Dom... More
