The staff are friendly, helpful and tend to your every need including (in my case) bringing an iron and board to the room at short notice and providing a tube of toothpaste. Good breakfast with sausage, bacon, fried egg, fish of many... More

Something was very welcoming about this hotel and it starts with the staff. The rooms are oversized and so are the bathrooms...all very nice, clean and great size. The only thing for our room was the air conditioner didn't work but other than that we loved it

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Cologne. The hotel is located in a walking distance to the Dom and city centre. The secure car park was also a bonus. Staff are really nice and helpful. The hotel also provided complimentary breakfast. The room was excellent in terms of style, cleanness and size.

Good location , close to the old part of town and the river. Easy walking distance to the train station and the Dom. Many very good places to eat close to the hotel. The hotel is very clean with good size rooms and bathroom. A excellent breakfast is available in the dining room. Well worth staying here.

The decor is clean and modern and our room was very comfortable with a real feel of luxury. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Parking in... More

Stayed for one night, service was very good, room (superior King) was small but of high quality. Air conditioning within the room is independent rather than linked to the hotel, which is a good thing! Parking is slightly complicated but located below the hotel.
