We ended up staying here having originally booked the Domstern but got bumped here on a book out. Didn't matter, had a fantastic stay even if it was only one night! Good room, very clean, super friendly staff, great breakfast spread including omelettes made to order. No reason to not reccomend!

Spent two nights here recently. Most previous reviews are very accurate. Location; extremely convenient, could not be better for getting around. Room; clean and what we needed, bathroom a touch small, but shower great. Staff; superb, friendly and helpful. Breakfast; how can anyone have any problems, very good choice of warm and cold buffet options. Really enjoyed our stay, thank you.

Hotel was spotless. Staff very helpful. Located close to the cathedral and train station (only 5 mins walk). Vast choice for breakfast, including bacon and eggs. Free wifi available. Only down point shower was difficult to step up into. Would book again, excellent price when booked through easy jet holidays (flight & hotel).

The location is perfect, very close to the Köln Hauptbahnhof, and the breakfast is fine. The room we got on the top floor is old and small and the bathroom is ridiculously tiny. The Wi-Fi signals are very weak and unsteady in our room. The staff are friendly and helpful and say that we can sit in the dining room and work instead. Because of MEDICA the daily room rate is around 200 Euro. It is not worth it.

We stayed here on a business trip to visit the Eisenwarremesse, we were put on the very top floor (probably used to be the loft) the floor was incredibly creaky and a bit concerning. The bathroom was a sort of pod which was too small and could have been made a lot bigger as there was plenty of space in the room. I wouldn't say this hotel was great value for money at 200 Euro per night it was quite expensive, but I'm sure this was just because of the trade fair. The staff were very friendly, polite and breakfast was superb, everything you could wish for. I would stay here again but maybe in a different room. Overall, I was happy with the trip and the location was superb!

Room Tip: Avoid the 50's as these are the loft space!

Dear "Stiffler123",

thank you for your review. Our hotel is located in an old building, a house with lots of charm and history. Unfortunately you can't simply put walls. When you are in Cologne next time, give us with your telephone booking a short notice - then we can give you a room with a larger bathroom (if available).

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay beyond that very well with us and send many greetings from Cologne!

We ended up at the Domspitzen even though we had booked the Domstern(see my review of Domstern for the reasons.
This hotel is across the road from the Domstern and is in a quiet little street near to the Hauptbahnhof and the Dom cathedral so is centrally located.
All the staff were extremely friendly and pleasant and as soonas we arrived we were provided with local maps and locations to visit as well as details on accessing the hotel wi-fi. The hotel was extremely clean including all the communal areas and rooms. The room was more than adequate but the only downsides were there were no coffee / tea making facilities in the room and the 'double' bed was 2 single beds pushed together with single sheets and duvets!!!.
The breakfast was plentiful and full of choice and on leaving we were given a chocolate santa which has been passed onto my grandson.
Overall our stay was above average but mainly due to the pleasant staff.

Room Tip: there are no really good rooms as you either look out onto the road and the hotel opposite or you lo...

The location of this hotel was great. Really close to the railway station which is right next to the cathedral and the shops and Christmas Markets.
The hotel is not part of a large chain and rooms are individually decorated.
The bed and pillow was very comfortable.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was fantastic. A great selection. All very different to what we eat in the Uk with meats, cheeses, prawns etc, but there was cereal, eggs, bacon etc on offer as well as fresh fruit.
The only point I would make is parts of the hotel were looking a little tired and needed decoration, but that said there was a handyman outside our room one day putting coving up so perhaps this is being dealt with.
there was no bar but we had a drink one night at the Trypp Hotel just across the road (with a hilarious night porter that just jumper over the reception counter to get in !!! )
Overall great location, great breakfast, and friendly people.
