The breakfast was good and had plenty of available seating. The hotel was one block from the Old Town Market, two blocks... More

It is a reasonable priced hotel with nice rooms on an excellent spot near to the centree of Cologne. Only issue is parking which is really difficult and can't be done easily near to the hotel. Rooms are clean and spacious, only minus is that you have a nice bog TV screen but very poor reception of the different TV... More

The hotel is nice, more a reasonable 3*** than a 4****. Rooms are renovated and comfortable (I got an apartment on the back of the hotel: the room was excellent, big, modern and clean, the downsize was the need to walk outside to get there). Reception and other common areas are not very nice and a bit outdated. Not a... More

This hotel is a nice place to stay on a short break or sight-seeing holiday. It is within an easy walk of the main station and cathedral and very close to an underground tram stop at Heumarkt with a direct line to the main terminus. I received a friendly welcome, my room was clean and modern with a mini-bar/fridge (I... More

I stayed here for a long weekend away in July 2015 with friends. We were very impressed by the modern rooms. The staff were very friendly. The location is fantastic as well. It's near plenty of nice bars and restaurants and a short walk to the main Cologne attractions. Would definitely stay here again and I would definitely recommend it... More

We have been there five days during the fair. The price is good considering the period (150/single 170/double breakfast excluded 7,5€/person - overpriced). The location is good, tram for fair very close than 2/3 stops, walking distance to restaurants, dom and pedonal area. Rooms freshly renovated and clean

Location and breakfast are not bad for such hotel level. Shopping area is at hand. Mindful personnel. But room space is limited, accommodation with children is uncomfortable, air conditioning is out of proper service.
