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

For what was a relatively cheap room in peak season, it was decent value for money. Decent location (20 minutes walk from train station), and close to shops and bars etc. It was clean and basic, everything you would expect and need from a hotel within this price range. We would definitely stay there again, no real problems.

Cheap and cheerful, small basic rooms, onl;y stayed the one night with my son as we were visiting the city. you get what you pay for in life, not the best but no means the worst I have stayed in. Not great for families or elder people as there is no lift!
