4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Overnight stay en route from the UK to Austria. Good location by autobahn in retail park but only a Subway nearby for food. Room fine, very clean. Bed nice and firm. Non-en suite shower excellent, toilet a tight fit but everything worked.

Friendly welcome and aufwiedersehen. Overall, convenient and inexpensive - even better for two.

A very warm welcome as always we have stayed at this hotel in Frechen many times over the years both as a couple and with friends and family when visiting the Christmas Markets and will certainly use it again as it is so wll positioned and very good hosts each time we stay.

This hotel is simply awful! We ended up leaving and staying at the Ibis opposite. The hotel was full of very dodgy looking guys, they hung around the corridors and outside. As two females we felt very threatened. Our door lock failed and we had no way to secure the room and no way to contact anyone.
I would seriously advise anyone females or families with children avoiding this place like the plague. It may be cheap but it is cheap for a reason!

I stayed with my sister at this 'hotel' for one night, we booked simply by seeing the sign, I couldn't find online booking, so we booked by phone.
Our reason for booking is because my parents were staying in the Ibis directly opposite, but this was cheaper.
The Ibis is a budget hotel, this is beyond that. I got to see the comparison because my parents were staying there (and because they booked in advance, they got it for 34€, 1€ more than we paid for Formule 1. Shared toilets/showers (didn't use showers, toilets were a little portaloo-esque, rooms were really small, a double bed with a bunk above it. the TV didn't work well, but it didn't bother us, just jumpy.
I must credit them for having a 4€ breakfast: simple and edible...
I also liked that the doors were coded, not keys/cards.
The location, unless planning on staying IN Frechen, or you have a car, I wouldn't use to visit Cologne. You have to walk around 1km to the nearest Ubahn stop, (Haus Vorst) to get a tram into Cologne, takes a little over half an hour once on the tram.

All in all I probably woulnd't stay here again, I'd book the Ibis and pay the extra, for a better night's sleep.
