Very helpful and friendly staff run this small hotel, a stone's throw from the very centre of Cologne. Fab breakfast, great selection of hot (bacon,scrambled egg, sausage, haslet etc) & cold (cheese, cold meats, etc) buffet, cereals, very varied selection of dried fruit & other toppings, fruit salad, yogurt, boiled eggs, rolls,pastries, croissants and several fresh juices to choose from as well as a pot of coffee or wonderful hot chocolates with cream. We booked the 2 bedroom suite on the top floor (5th), very large rooms and furnished traditionally and very comfortably with sofa, coffee table, desk in the living area and the kitchenette has a fridge, sink & cooker,plenty of cupboards, and cutlery, although no cooking utensils but fine for making a quick lunch. Very nice newly fitted bathroom with decent shower. The beds in both rooms are 6 feet wide and very very comfortable! We visited this hotel with our 2 teenage daughters, we stayed for 4 nights whilst visiting the Christmas markets and it was absolutely ideal. There is free bottled mineral water every day and a display of fresh fruit in reception which you can help yourself to free of charge.
At the time of booking, the hotel arranged parking at a nearby car park which cost around 50 euros for our 4 night stay and was very secure. Just a note to anyone who may not be aware, Cologne is a low emissions zone and if you plan on bringing your car into the town centre you need a LEZ sticker, best thing is to go to the KolnTourismus site and look under "Travelling in Cologne", at the bottom of the page you can click on the Low Emissions zone bit and by sending 5 euros to the address given there, they will send a stick to you, ours was posted and arrived back within a week! Beware other sites who charge 25 -70 euros plus for doing the same thing for you!!!
The shops in Cologne are fab with Hohe Str & Schildegasse being the main areas. There's a little train to get you from one market to another if you don't want to walk. We visited the Lindt chocolate factory/museum by the Rhine which was fascinating and the girls went ice skating, such a perfect and pretty setting.
We were made to feel welcome and enjoyed our stay.
