I can't fault the hotel in terms of its location or facilities but then it is one of the more expensive ones in Cologne. No complaints on that front. However, my biggest concern and the reason why I would not return are the rip off prices charged, in particular the €27 fee for breakfast and the €20 per day for wifi.
Breakfast - quality may be reasonable but I don't pay that for a std hotel breakfast in Zurich which is one of the most expensive cities I pay in.
Wifi - the charge is ridiculous especially where this hotel classes itself for business use. I was able to claim expenses but I refuse to bill that charge to my company as it is completely disproportionate. Honestly, even airports offer free wifi. The laughable excuse is that there is free wifi in the bar area. Obviously to get you to buy an overpriced drink, but, the free version is so throttled back its unusable for anything more than email.
So, despite the quality of the rooms and hotel, I would not return.
