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!!
