“Great Hotel Great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Great value hotel not just because of the price but because the standard is very good in all areas. The rooms are a good standard, the public areas are well maintained, convenient for all transport, good breakfasts. You could pay a lot more for this standard.

Room Tip: Don`t get a room at the right hand end of the hotel as you look at the front. When the recycling bin...

The hotel is about a block away from the Friesenplatz metro stop. There's a Starbucks (free wireless, since the hotel charges a lot) a block away, there's the Paffgen Brauhaus right behind it, and there are a lot of food choices within a 5 minute walk. The staff was very helpful. There's a gym and the rooms were standard western hotel sizes and clean.

We had 2 nights during the Karneval in the hotel. It was also the place where one of the "Kölner Karneval Garde " had there celebration headquarter. But, the hotel managed it very well. Friendly check in, very nice rooms, including the room service. Well, the bath room needs a renovation but it was clean. It was great to have a selection of pillows in the bed. Very comfortable. Breakfast also was a very good buffet, fresh, tasty and the service ask for fresh made stuff from the kitchen.

Stayed here for 3 nights while on business and pleasure trip, the hotel is well located in a good location 3 minutes walk from the metro station frisenplatz , the lobby is nice, the check in even though there is no one was very slow, dint bother me but was really strange.

rooms are nice in size but a bit worn down i thought. service isint the most pleasant for the price you pay, and the breakfast at Euros 24.50 p/Person is too expensive i thought there are many coffee shops close by and fantastic breakfast served there . internet is not free so lots of extras to pay hence do compare other hotels when booking as i am sure that you can get a better deal.

if i will stay here again, maybe : only if i get a good price as breakfast and internet are the costs to be added

The hotel is located in the centre of Cologne, 15 minute walk to the dome and 5 minute walk to the area around the Brusseler Platz which has loads of cool shops, cafes, and restaurants. The hotel is quite luxurious, and staff are friendly and well trained. They do seem to be on a bit of a money-saving mission though, and our room key was handed to us in a basic envelope (so no key card with hotel name etc on it) and the registration form was a bad copy on flimsy paper. The bed in the room is super comfy, the bathroom is great with a good shower. We did not have breakfast but went around the corner to a simple cafe. We did pay a lot for the room as we were there for the IMM (very important exhibition), I guess you can get good rates in the weekend and I would definitely recommend it then for leisure travel as well.
