Clean spacious well presented apartment but difficult to find. Thankfully we were contacted and met by the owner and taken to our apartment. The cathedral is just next door as is the Cologne Hbf main train station. We were very happy with our stay but think the front entrance could do with a little improvement. Photo taken from apartment window...

We have been traveling through Europe for a couple of months now and the hotels have interesting to say the least. Some have been amazing while others the bare essentials. However we thought in a place like Cologne it would be a bit more accommodating. We booked First Domizil and were given the "penthouse" suite. A bit odd because you...

We treated ourselves and rented the penthouse apartment. It checked boxes we didn't know existed. We did not have an issue with heat, floor or otherwise. There are skylights that can be opened in the kitchen and bathroom made for great ventilation. We found the check-in easy and kinda fun. The owner allowed credit card payment and was very enjoyable...

Wow. Location is fantastic... few mins walk to station and right next to cathedral with plenty places to grab a bit or drink. The apartment is very nicely setup indeed and host extremely friendly and accommodating. The bakery across the road is worth visiting for breakfast as well.

I totally agree with everyone who has commented on the fantastic position of these apartments. They are located practically next door to the breathtaking Dorm Cathedral, with brilliant access to the train station and to lots of good shopping, restaurants and bakeries. The building provides an ideal base for anyone wanting to explore Cologne. When you first arrive, keep your...

The location is fantastic, if you don't mind street noise (we didn't mind). Open all the windows in the living room and enjoy the sights and sounds. There is no difficulty checking in. When you find the apartment doors (there is no sign except on the door), go to the restaurant directly to the right of the door and the...

The main highlight in Koln is its Dom or cathedral, so it made perfect sense to stay just within the area. First Domizil is just that...literally around the corner that I can see part of the cathedral from the side window. This apartment is a short walk from the central station (which is beside the cathedral) so it was convenient...

The Penthouse apartment was fabulous! Heaps of room for the two of us, lovely outdoor terrace and seating area, super fast WIFI and two steps from the cathedral, tourist office, mini markets, restaurant's, river etc. This is a great base to explore Cologne. Car parking was in the underground car park right across the road under the cathedral, it wasn't...

As I'm writing this, we're spending the night at First Domizil. A lot has been already said: great location, nice big apartment. We're spending the night in apartment 1 (first floor). No balcony here, just a small patio in the back, but not a nice place to sit (no furniture either). Check in was a struggle. We didn't receive any...

We booked a penthouse apartment for two people and the apartment was very good, clean and with a very spacious terrace.location wise you cannot get anything better than this.wifi was super quick . The entry procedure was with an access code which we easily got from an italian restaurant located in the same building downstairs. But only thing it lacked...
