The location of this hotel is excellent. Very close to the Cathedral. Room was very clean and the staff polite and helpful. Good breakfasts also. Price for the room was quite reasonable. Next time I stay in Cologne I plan to stay here.

Extremely small room, couldn't even fit nightstands and the TV was 20cm from the head of the bed. Not that it mattered, since it didn't even have a remote. The bed itself was ok, but the pillows were terrible. The bathroom was only very superficially clean. A closer look showed limescale stains, and mould starting to appear in corners. There...

We paid 100 euro for a night, the hotel room was tiny, outdated, filthy and was lacking basic comfort, e.g. the bath had no plug so you could only shower, the power outlets are located in such a way that you have to move furniture to charge your phone, the bath room was clearly not cleaned properly, etc. Avoid this...

The location couldnt be more perfect! The dom is right around the corner, many restaurants within meters, easy to park on the street but would recommend a cheaper option in a nearby parking building. The staff is friendly and helpful. Didnt try their breakfast. The room was very outdated but clean, warm and good noise isolation. We paid €106/night for...

Stayed in the Hotel Konigshof whilst visiting the Christmas Markets. Superb position only a few minutes from the station and cathedral. Good breakfast buffet set us up for the day wandering the city centre and sampling the food available from the Xmas markets.

Great location, pity there was no bar for a late drink, wouldn't be suitable for families. Breakfast room looked tiny, we just had breakfast around the corner in a nice coffee and pastry shop. Nice people on reception and the clearer always said hello.

I used to stay here every time i visited Cologne but it's changed hands, and no where near as good, bookings.com said it has a bar which it used to have but not now, no TV remote, bathroom stunk of drains, no milk, no teaspoon, socket for kettle 4' off the floor but no table to put it on, breakfast...

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights to see Christmas markets and travel around the area. The location of this hotel could not have been better for that and access to trains. It was perfect. The people working there were all friendly and attempted to be helpful to us without exception. My biggest complaint was the poor and sometimes...

Great location right around the corner from the train station and cathedral. Easy walking distance to everywhere. Staff were friendly, but there was some difficulty with English when I tried to ask where I could do laundry. Room was comfortable, on the smallish side, but not bad. Good wifi.
