“Great hotel, good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

Stayed here in July for german F1 GP at Nurburgring. About 50 mins to circuit and 20 mins to Koln/Cologne. Breakfast included in price and was a good continental breakfast. Very good bar/ grill restaurant over the road from hotel and subway, mcdonalds and good garage shop next door so plenty of eating options if you don't want to venture far. Staff spoke good English and were very helpful and friendly. Service at the hotel bar is slow when busy as they double up as reception. Rooms were good size, very clean and typical Hol.inn express. Rooms were a bit too warm and air con didn't work/ exist. That said slept ok, beds were comfy. Very well located on major road network. Highly recommended for a good value hotel.

I stayed here for six nights. The hotel is well located off of the A-59 and next to a McDonalds and mini-mart/gas station/Subway sandwich shoppe. The rooms are comfrotable but the in-room internet is expensive. There is free internet in the lobby and breakfast room. The breakfast is decent. The TV needs non-German channels, such as the BBC and CNN.

Room Tip: All rooms are pleasant

We stayed at the hotel on route to Vienna. The room was small and had dated décor. However, it was clean. Our room had a fantastic view of the adjacent petrol station and Subway sandwich shop. Breakfast was good. A variety of breads and cereal were available. Although, I have had better breakfasts at other Holiday Inn Express hotels. The hotel was very convenient for the autobahn - only 6 hours drive from Calais. The hotel offers free parking and there is a McDonalds across the road. Overall, a suitable hotel for an overnight stop. It would not be suitable for a long stay.

This hotel is located just off the highway exit. The rooms are bigger than one would expect, however the double bed is kind of small. The room is clean and kind of basic as one would expect at a express holiday inn hotel. If I would stay here again I would certainly go for twin bedding. Underneath the hotel is a chinese restaurant and within walking distance is a Subway Sandwiches, Mac Donalds (also serves breakfast), a gas station and a steakhouse (accross the street). Parking is free at the hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2010

Stayed here as we had flight out of Cologne-Bonn airport.

Positives:
- Close to Cologne-Bonn airport (Approx 15 minutes taxi - 20 to 25 EUR)
- Fast food (McDonalds & Subway), Gas station and Restaurant (Poco Loco) nearby
- Free breakfast (like any HI Express) - which was okay
- Friendly staff (don't expect them to be extremely service minded, just friendly, and all spoke English very well)
- Free parking! Big plus!

Negatives:
- Location itself is next to highway, in pretty much middle of nowhere. Doesn't seem like a good solution to actually visit Cologne.
- Internet is way too expensive (15 EUR/24 hours) - especially for a budget hotel
- They were charging too high rates for this kind of hotel (>110 EUR a night). Not worth it, so i used PC Points instead
- Antique tiny TV with no English channels at all (not even CNN or something)

Still recommending this place, if you need to be in the area or near Cologne-Bonn airport and if the rate is right, it's a decent place to stay.
