“Perfect! If I only had only one word to describe B & B Cologne, it would be PERFECT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

The B & B is on the third floor in a quiet neighborhood. It has its own, private lift which makes moving luggage/people up & down a breeze. It is a lovely, charming, beautiful place ideally located near everything (train station, Cathedral, St. Martins, St. Maria im Kapitol, The Old Town, Christmas Markets, Hofbrauhauses, museums & shopping)! Our room and adjoining full, private bathroom (#1 – Downstairs) were large, clean and comfortable and included many original art works. The breakfast, which should be renamed the Ultimate Morning Feast, is EXTRAORDINARY! Our first morning, we sat and ate for an hour and a half! Any of these might make you consider staying with Mike & Mietze (his gorgeous British shorthaired cat), but the most exceptional thing about B & B Cologne is Mike and the way he makes you feel like an honored guest in his wonderful home. Mike is the epitome of what a welcoming host should be and I doubt you will ever experience anyone as warm, friendly and kind as him in your travels. We have trotted the globe and never have we experienced the level of hospitality Mike lavishes on his guests. We were his last guests before he closed for the Christmas Holidays. You might think we would not receive Mike’s full attention due to other stresses of the season let alone preparing for the arrival of his own family for the holidays, but indeed we did. Upon arrival, he greeted us with cupcakes and café macchiatos. When we returned that evening from a full day sampling the Christmas markets, Mike welcomed us back with the best Gluhwein and Eierpunsch in the city(trust me on this one, as we sampled both concoctions at 6 different Christmas markets)! During our stay, Mike gave us a detailed maps and lots of helpful hints that were spot on to help us make the most of our time in Cologne. He called restaurants to secure reservations and checked hours or operation at different attractions we were interested in. In short, he makes you feel like you have died and gone to B & B heaven! If you are planning on taking a trip to Cologne, there is nowhere better to stay than with Mike & Mietze at B & B Cologne!!

I don't think you'll find a more gracious host at a B&B. I have stayed at many other B&B's in my travels and this place is truely exceptional. Mike is a very energetic, personable and pay attention to detail super star. He made our group of 4 feel amazingly special and comfortable during our 2 day stay in early Dec. 2012. We felt very much at home and enjoyed relaxing and getting to know our host. Mike gave us a nice detailed map of Cologne and his opinions on how best to spend our limited time to see the Christmas Markets as well as other how to get a feel for the city as a whole. Every recommendation was a hit for us. Our room was upstairs with it's own private bathroom. Although you have to leave the bedroom to use the bathroom right next door it is down a very private hallway. The room and bathroom were very clean. The decor of the home is very modern and original as the owner is also an artist. As every other writer has mentioned, the breakfast is amazing. It's kind of overwhelming but Mike was on hand to explain what he had presented and how to eat it to get the best taste (being American we don't all know how to eat a pate!) My birthday was on the day of our check out. Mike graciously invited us back in the afternoon to celebrate with a cupcake that I can only describe as an explosion of warm chocolate in my mouth. He also owns Mr. Cupcake. If you only have time to visit 1 city for the Christmas Market season, make it Cologne. After we left Cologne we took a 7 day cruise on the Rhine River to visit Christmas Markets in Germany, France and Switzerland. Cologe was by far the highlight on this side of Germany. Book early and stay B&B Cologne and you will not be disappointed. The location is very central and easy to get to the majority of markets. The nights were very quiet for a good night's rest.

Room Tip: Our room was upstairs. The steps are a little steep and narrow. If this is something you have diffi...

After staying here I really wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Cologne. Our host was so warm and welcoming and so knowledgeable - full of great advice about where to go/eat etc (and you simply must take him up on his Italian lunch recommendation - the place is unbelievable!) As first time visitors to Cologne in town for a couple of relaxing days and to take in the Hockney exhibition, this advice was gratefully received. We loved Cologne - the art, the shopping, the atmosphere - but the city was made even more special by staying here. Stunning place, with chic decor, classy Christmas decorations, artwork everywhere and the BREAKFAST - good God, it was unbelievable. The potato cakes and smoked salmon deserve a five star review of their own. I would recommend it whole-heartedly (even though I'm frightened It'll be booked up the next time I try to go as a result).

I'm not really sure where to start, There is so much I want to say about Mike's wonderful B&B in Cologne. From the minute we booked to the moment we had to (very sadly) say goodbye and come home, we couldn't have wished for more. When we arrived we were greeted so enthusiatically by Mike, and welcomed into his home, that we immediately felt right at ease. From coffee and cupcakes on arrival to the wonderfully leisurely and abundant breakfasts,everything was perfect. Mike told us to make ourselves at home and he meant it. Nothing was too much trouble, from phoning restaurants to see if we could get a reservation to telling us the easiest way to get to and from the station on foot. I don't think I have ever relaxed so much on a trip away from home and that is all down to Mike's hospitality. Our bedroom, on the top floor, was beautifully light and clean, with it's own gorgeous bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. We had fantastic views down to the Rhine on one side and up to the Cathedral on the other. Mike had prepared a map for us, with details of where all the Christmas Markets were and also with his restaurant recommendations. Those recommendations were absolutely spot on. When we arrived back late in the evening Mike was on hand with the gorgeous Mitze (the resident cat) for a chat and a glass of home-made Gluwein or Eierpunsch . Mikes B&B is full of the most wonderful art work - some his own - and we spent a lovely couple of hours learning more about this on our final morning in Cologne. I could go on and on, but I think I can sum it by saying that staying with Mike is like staying with a wonderful old friend. We can't wait to go back and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Cologne. Mike - thank you so much for making our trip so very special.

It is hard to find words to truly express how wonderful this B&B is....and it's not only because of it's wonderful location.. (5 mins from the gorgeous square)....beautiful twinkly lights all inside.....smell of warm lemon cake being made for you....and adorable Meize the cat that resides there....it's because of it's owner....Mike. He has to be the most welcoming, gracious, sweet, warm, nurturing person you have ever met. He looks after your every need from lighting you a fire and making you homemade treats....covering you with a blanket should you feel a cold is coming on (which my husband and I both had).... and making you warm hot lemon drinks....warm baked goods he's whipping up in his kitchen for you....gorgeous breakfasts....all with a warmth and smile that cannot be topped. Not only is the B&B ranked #1 for it's location and your gorgeous surroundings inside.....but it is because of Mike. He is one of those special people in life you will have the honor of meeting.....if you stay there. So stay there....do yourself a favor. Look no more....if you don't....you will miss the opportunity of a life time. And hug Mike and that sweet little Meize for me if you do! It was a magical experience we will never forget!

Well, what can I say? This place was the ultimate modern B&B. Supercool decor, some of which was built by our host, full attention to detail and client comfort and desires. Delicious, and more than abundant, breakfast with fried egg, bacon and potato pancake with smoked salmon plus a dozen or more different cold plates to choose from. Also on offer were fresh baked breads and pastries. Very well done. Mike, the owner was most attentive and helpful without being intrusive at all. He is a talented person and it was obvious he enjoys welcoming guests from around the world in his home and showing them the best in German hospitality. If you are going to Cologne, this is the place to stay. Book early if you can so you won't miss out on a real treat. This place is ranked number 1 for a reason and it is hard to imagine what could beat it.
