“A real home in Cologne”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

It's almost embarrassing to jump on the five star bandwagon with hundreds of other folks, but there is no choice: Michael is simply the archetype of a welcoming innkeeper.
We stayed in the upstairs bedroom for three nights during Christmas markets. As everyone has said, the house is lovely, and I have never in all my life seen so much food, of such great quality , for breakfast. Even on the day we were leaving early, we were served several courses of quality items.
One note on choosing which room: The upstairs room, with dormered ceiling, is private, has a marvelous view over the city and of the cathedral and its own wardrobe room!! But when we return, we will probably ask for the downstairs room because I am incapable of remembering to duck for the ceilings and left with a couple huge knots on my head. (MY issue, not the establishment's). Also, the staircase to the room is a little narrow and steep for my aging knees.
The downstairs room would not be noisy, as there are only two rooms and the whole place totally revolves around the guests' needs, and the ceiling there is regular height. Plus the downstairs room includes a bath tub, instead of just a shower. Either room tho, is definitely worth it and we will be returning.

Room Tip: If you are 'creaky' or clumsy, go for the downstairs. If you are nimble and want a spendid...

We stayed at B&B for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. Thanks Mike and Mieze (the cat) for hospitality. Very clean. Stylish (Mike is also a designer of most of accessories in the house). Do not hesitate to ask Mike about places of interest, restaurants, bars, clubs, shops etc. also Mike provides you with an access to B&B Facebook page which has plenty of information about Cologne - the information is categorized and very helpful. Surely come again!

This is one of the best experiences we have had on holiday. If anything, the photos and reviews on Trip Advisor cannot fully do justice to the service and feeling you get when staying at B&B Cologne. We stayed for three nights and were very sorry to leave.
The breakfast is superb and the rooms are clean and comfortable. As a host, Mike is exceptional. He is on hand when you need him, but never in your way, which is a difficult balance to achieve. You can tell that running this B&B is a passion, not a job. The same can be said for the cupcakes- they need to be tasted to be believed. Although I am allergic to cats, Mitze didn't cause me any problems.
It's rare that I am moved to write a Trip Advisor review, but it is rare that you find such a rare accommodation jewel!

We came for a short break after seeing the reviews on trip advisor, the reviews were true in every detail, and we certainly were not disappointed.. We have never been made to feel so welcome. Mike tells you to treat the place like your own home. You can come and go when you please with your own set of keys, Mike asks you when you would like breakfast and does not tell you when it is. He was very helpful with any questions we had and pointed us in the right direction of places to eat drink and see. THE BREAKFAST!!!! Photographs do not do it justice! We sat for an hour trying everything and it still looked how it did when we started!! There is plenty of food, very varied with local little tasters, you won't be hungry again until four o'clock. An absolutely fabulous place to set up base and operate from. Very central for most things and a two minute walk to the nearest tram stop for the further away places. It was such a shame we had to leave to come home. Highly highly recommend B and B Cologne. Thanks again Mike.

B&B Cologne was a birthday present from my daughter. She really has made the right choice.
A perfect location close to the city center, the Dom and the Rhine river.
The bedroom, bathroom and the living room are very clean and complete with nice decoration.
But the best of all is our host Mike and his superb breakfast.
Mike is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is complete and delicious and custom made with the cupcakes as the jewels on the crown. I regret that I didn't took some of those cupcakes back home.

From the moment we walked in and smelled the fresh baked cupcakes, we knew we were in for a treat.

The B&B is a spacious flat. It's clean, yet comfortable, and tastfully decorated with extreme attention to detail.

The location couldn't be better, in easy walking distance from everything we wanted to see.

To say the breakfast was generous would be a criminal understatement. Delicious and varied, the breakfast kept us busy for at least an hour, and left us ready for the day.

All of that would be enough for a great stay, but our host Mike really made it a weekend to remember. He was friendly and helpful without being over-bearing. He had a way of making us feel instantly welcome and always comfortable.

For my money, the best way to spend a weekend in Cologne.

We had a long weekend in Cologne and Mike really made the trip. He had fantastic recommendations for restaurants which we really enjoyed. The location was very central and convenient. The room was lovely and Mike was a friendly, welcoming and gracious host. Breakfasts were amazing and really set us up for the day. We both eat a lot but didn't need lunch afterwards!
