Description: 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.

“Noisey and hot”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Very well placed in the Altstadt and near the main shopping streets of Cologne, but you pay a price for it's location - it can be VERY noisey at night, especially at weekends. This would be no problem if the rooms had aircon, but they don't, and if it's hot, you need the windows open & therefore can't sleep for the noise. Don't have the hotel breakfast, as €12 for a very poor selection.

“Delicious and great service”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We went there for lunch. The waiters were super nice and very patient explaining the dishes and recommending what to eat. Inside the tables may seem squished together, but we were in the indoor terrace, nicely spaced out and very nice. I ordered a pasta with a truffle sauce, cherry tomatos, and beef. Delicious, juicy, thick strips of beef, perfect al dente pasta, and a devine, creamy sauce. My friend has a pizza, although the pizza was a little, tiny bit soggy towards the middle, it was still pretty good. The bill came out to about 20 euros per person including drinks. A bit expensive, but the food was so good, and the service was so fast and awesome that I think it was a fair price. They also have several good offers for brunch, and special days, ex. every Monday they have a buffet where they grill everything.

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

The restaurant is in an excellent location, and from the outside is quite attractive. However, the food was nothing special for the price and the tables were squashed very close together. Was extremely uncomfortable and cramped. Service was alos quite slow. Will not go back.

“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Booked at the last minute and found this lovely hotel in a great location. There appear to be some refurbishment works going on around the hotel, in my opinion the room was slightly dated and needs updating. Still rooms are clean and the bathrooms are lovely, very modern and clean. Had breakfast in the restaurant and it was very nice, worth the expense. Would definitely stay here again.
