We spent 5 days in this clean, calm and central hotel. The ONLY thing was the AC who did not work (in our room) During the weekend there was the Amphi festival and the hotel was a popular spot for attendents. We hade our bikes with us and it took about 10 min to get to the kölnerdom.

The rooms are not stylish, the interior boring, the rooms are not always clean. The breakfast buffet is ok, also the... More

Plus, there few traffic so it's quite calm at night. The hotel is really good for its price. You have to add a 3€50 city tax. There's a... More

Very close to messe. Only draw back for me is the extremely slow servive you get from the restaurant. The food is really good,but takes so long to arrive. I was there for 8 nights and every night there was an issue with slow service or drinks not even turning up! They appear to be hugely under staffed!

We stayed here for one night on a short break and found the hotel no problem and it had good links to public transport. Initially we walked from the train station to the hotel which took around 15mins but there's a tram which runs really frequently and connects you in 2 minutes, the hotel is a few mins walk to...
