“Great facilities - but why charge 12 Euro for Wi-Fi?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

The standard of the room was fine and the front desk very helpful and smiling. The pool in the basement looked really fine and the fitness equipment is in a good condition.

I am really wondering why WiFi seems to be considered a luxury service in some hotels and free of charge standard in others. To my opinion internet connection is established in all cities and the cost for driving that is absolutely a minimum. So, why not include that in the room instead of annoying the guests with this extra relatively high amount of money for a commodity service that now a days is expected to be free...?

Dear Esben,
Thanks a lot for your stay with us and for your very honest feedback. We are happy to learn of your positive rating and did forward your kind comments within our team, especially to our front desk ladies. We also noticed your hint concerning the Wlan costs and do understand your request to get this service generally free of charge. Actually we cannot offer this service complimentary to all guests or room types but in our First Class room category WLan is already included, as well as the use of the First Class Lounge or parking (special events excepted). Next time please ask about this room category. Thanks again and best regards, Liane Ruebenach, Guest Relations Manager.

My girlfriend and I stated here for five nights just aster Easter. Staff were friendly, helpful and went out of their way to be of assistance.

The rooms provided excellent value for money and the bed was the most comfortable we've ever slept in.

Hotel is well located and despite being beside the main road the rooms are well soundproofed.

Would gladly recommend this hotel to anyone.

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
