One of the few good hotels in this area, which is not central but close to Chlodwigplatz. Great neighbourhood with restaurants and shops. The hotel is cute, with a nice entry. But the rooms are not so great. Minimalist furnishings and amenities. No creams or shampoo. Towels a bit dated. Cannot close curtains for total darkness. Trying for modern look but makes the room a bit cold. Staff was not friendly or helpful. Parking is quite a walk and costs another 28 euro a day. They did not tell us that at the start. They could do a lot better to make you feel welcome and that would make me want to go back.

We stayed for a few days around Christmas in the Hoppers St Josef. Hoppers operates three hotels in Cologne - all are in converted historical buildings and feature a modern design.
We enjoyed our stay very much, the room (rather a small studio) was spacious and the bed was of very good quality.
Everything was clean and well maintained, although furniture and electric gadgets were a few years old (adapters for the “new” iPhone would be nice if you offer docks). AFAIK there is no AC.
Staff was friendly and young, but not exceptional in knowledge of the area or proactive.
The hotel is 5-10 min walking from the main station on the “off” side. Walking to the Rhine , cathedral and old town is 15 min. Area is quiet and save, the nearby Eigelstein is multi-cultural and colorful but not one of the posh areas.
We didn’t try the restaurant but the menu was promising modern bistro cuisine.

Good value, good location, big rooms, no chain, pleasant modern design. I can recommend the Hopper.

We were at a trade fair this week.
We found this hotel on Booking.com at a fair price. It’s circa 4km from the Messe so a little out of the way but it was a good well run hotel in an old and interesting monastery building with some great architecture nestled with around clean and recently refurbished rooms. The bed and bathroom were good. The staff attentive. The breakfast was lovely. We booked again for next year.

Charming hotel, close tu Chlodwigplatz, convenient to come to downtown in 10 minutes by tram.
Former church adapted to hotel with nice equipment and hotel service.
Since travel during fair season it was little bit expensive but comparing to other hotels it has its own spirit. Recommended for single travelers.

I have stayed at the other Hopper Hotels in Cologne so I thought I would try this one. I didn't arrive until 10pm so went straight to my room. It was minimal like the others but a little more unfriendly. The curtains didn't cover the windows properly so the streetlights came in, no bedside tables so I pulled a chair over and no lights that worked above the bed. I was too tired to ring down so gave up!

The breakfast room was untidy with uncleared tables. The bread to slice had run out as had the fruit salad and there was still 1 hour to go.

The 120 euro price per night plus a very poor breakfast for 13 euros is just not worth it.
