We stayed two nights and this was a very useful hotel for getting around easy bu walking/underground/bus. Perfect location for walking into Cathedral area. Just a few minutes walk from the train station, and handy to get to/from the airport. A special mention for Sabrina at reception who was so nice to us. With hindsight, if we have known about...

This was my first visit to Cologne for the annual Gamescom show. The hotel was easily found and conveniently located. The hotel was pricey, likely because of limited capacity city wide with the Gamescom event being held. I had recently stayed the same number of nights at a 4 star hotel in Paris for less than I paid for my... More

The hotel was adequate for our needs, the breakfast was good, most of the staff were lovely and very helpful (apart from a couple unwelcoming receptionists on arrival). The room was adequate and cleaned daily, beds could have been comfier but for the price we can't complain. The location was great, 5 minute... More

The hotel was great! we arrived earlier to leave our luggage before check in and we had the surprise to be able to check already in. The Room was huge and confortable, I was afraid since we occupied one next to the main road on the first floor to be noisy, but with the double glass and the airco, no... More

Stayed for 5 nights nice quiet room and got an upgrade. Nice choice for breakfast and friendly staff. The only little thing was the blinds at the windows not exactly light blocking. I would stay here again. It is close to the railway station about 5 minutes away

A few of us stayed 3 nights at this hotel and were generally pleased with it and would stay again. The price of the rooms we got in relation to where the hotel is from the city centre was really good. The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the Cathedral and Koln Hbf and so no taxis etc are... More

Second and last time I sleep there. Rooms are very small and extremely noisy. Furniture and accessories need fixing. Paid a fortune (€150 because there was a fair... That tells enough about the mindset). A gloomy stay in a depressing place.
