Very well located, just 3 minutes away from the main train station, Bedroom is not so big, but polite and clean and with a good shower. Breakfast is very good, hard to find when comparing with similar hotels. The staff is their greatest asset and will be happy to help making your stay a better one.

We booked late and couldn't get into our first choice but this small 3star hotel was a good find and we would recommend it. It is a short 5 min walk from Koln train station which is itself only 4 stations from the airport. The hotel is very well situated for a short walk through the station for Cologne Cathedral,... More

We arrived last minute and where greeted very friendly. There is 24 hour reception and very fat Internet compared to other hotels in the city and region. We got room 408 with an impressive southern balcony to sit and enjoy the sunshine.

This is our third trip to Hotel Ludwig and we are always pleased with the accommodations and especially with the pleasant and courteous staff. The rooms are very efficient and comfortable and the beds provide for a good night's rest after a hard day of sight seeing and traveling. The breakfast is as the hotel, not ostentatious, and very good... More

Nice hotel, very good position. If you did not come for GamesCom and booked it too late, I guess you can have a better rate (than 150Eur which we paid for double room per day, which is way too much for it). For a 3 star hotel, I have no complaints. Well almost... :). Rooms are clean and OK. Bathroom... More

This friendly family hotel is within easy walking distance from the railway station (where you'd end up taking the S-Bahn from the airport, too). It is an old building, but perfectly clean and "unsmelly". Service (24 hrs!) very forthcoming. As other visitors rightly remarked, there is no real bar, but a suitably large selection of bottles drinks in a large... More

We stayed in the Ludwig in May 2012 while attending an exhibition in Dusseldorf for 3 days. The idea was to avoid the expensive hotels there while only being a 30-minute (free) train-ride away. The hotel is almost opposite the Marriot and 2 minutes walk from the main railway station in Cologne and not much further from the old city... More

The bed was soooo comfortable, with big puffy covers and comfortable pillows. I was exhausted and it was the best sleep I had in about a week at least! We bought a... More

We stayed here Dec 2011 for a weekend to visit the Christmas Markets. We had a room with 3 single beds for myself, my daughter and grandaughter. The room was spacious enough for us all, the breakfast buffet was very good with cereals, bacon, sausages, juices etc and could not be faulted. The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from... More
