I stayed over 10 days at the hotel and I think I had 2 night of half decent sleep. The noise from the main square in front of the hotel goes on until well after midnight and several times I was woken at 5am by drunken people returning home. The double glazing is unless at keeping out sound and there... More

This is my second visit to this Italian restaurant. Excellent service and food. The only disadvantage is that the restaurant is so big, making it not very cosy.

This was wonderful accommodation central to all City activities and night life. The room was clean and well serviced. It was a bit warm and no cooling system, but the location and total package, made it worthwhile!

We enjoyed a nice dinner outside in the inner courtyard. The waiter was a really friendly and caring Italian, making jokes and giving good advice on what to order. I really like the atmosphere and the menu having an old newspaper-look. We had the bruschetta and appetizer plate, different sorts of steak, the tuna and shrimps with aioli and salad.... More

We went there for Dinner and although the place was crowded, the service was just in time, the food is good and affordable. Atmosphere is nice , but the flair seems more like a german Brewerie, and less like an Italian restaurant.

Went for an early breakfast because we were hungry and nothing was open. Quality level around what you'd expect from a hotel buffet. Service was fine, and everything we ordered was edible. Can't complain too much, since it fit the bill for saving us from early-morning starvation.

We visited on our recent trip and were looking for a place we could have a nice drink with a bit of a view. Located in one of Cologne's squares, this charming place is well worth a visit.

big Location with different rooms and the big plus is it can handle even very big Groups - therefore it is ideal. For smaller groups or even only 2 persons I would not recommend. It is very loud and creates a Feeling like being in a railway hall. Service good, Food average

Nur wenige Minuten von Kölner Dom und Rhein entfernt liegt das XII Apostel Köln mitten in der Altstadt, die den richtigen Rahmen gibt für die XII Apostel Speisekarte. Hier findet man den milden Petrus, einen scharfen Judas oder den beliebten Paolo. Die Rede ist von der Spezialität des Hauses, den riesigen, hauchdünnen und knusprigen Holzofen-Pizzen.
