Not suitable for family stay as the place looks so old and not so clean. Will not recommend to my friends.for those looking for budget stay can consider. Not much place to visit from the place and does not suit my needs.

I went to this hotel last September, the staff was very welcome and helpful, although the hotel is very small and a bit old it was very clean. Next time that I will be visiting Cologne I will sure consider Hotel Elite.

I was looking for one night stay, as arrival was in late afternoon and leaving next morning after breakfest, so fancy hotel would be just waste of money. Elite seems to be great choice, even is a bit old fashioned (but I was told they already start with renew/rebuild, so in 2017 should be all new!) Room was on first... More

Nice small hotel. Rooms are small but convenient and comfortable.I had a single room but I guess there are double rooms. Managers are really kind. Breakfast is really good. Only one problem : soundproofing, better for you to have quiet neighbours. Nice hotel for one or two nights.

Having read reviews of this hotel I was apprehensive as the hotel had been booked by a friend. I was worried for nothing, check in was quick and easily accomplished. The entrance to my reserved parking space was tight by well lit. The room on the second floor (love the small lift)was clean and well lit and only issue I... More

This was the only hotel I could find since this was a busy weekend. The good Check in was OK, and thankfully the hotel does have a lift. There’s free Wi-Fi too, and this worked fine for me. The breakfast was OK. The staff were friendly and helpful, in particular the evening and night staff, who recommended where I would... More

Good location near the railway station of "Cologne South". Many restaurants and bars around. The Hotel is in a backstreet, so it is not noisy. staff very friednly, breakfast o.K., Room small but with everything you need for a night's sleep.

We stayed in this hotel in July 2013, and paid 170 Euro for a two night stay in a triple room. The hotel is located within walking distance from the train station in a quiet area of Cologne (about 10 minutes away from the City Center). The area is not beautiful but it is very safe, and we enjoyed a... More

This hotel gives excellent breakfast and spacious rooms for the low price charged.. Loved the delicious croissants. Polite and helpful receptionists. Only problem was that one needs to take another local train from the main station in Cologne to the district station Koln Sud and at both these stations either the lifts were not available or not working. So it... More
