B & B Cologne Filzengraben
Ranked #1 of 58 Cologne B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Mike loves his city and has the most wonderful advice regarding any Cologne sight, activity or place! He runs a spotless and very high quality b&b with a hands-on charm - with help from Mieze the cat. And the breakfast - a lesson in relaxing and enjoying (which at this stage we needed - thank you, Mike). Highly recommended!

We stayed here for three nights and the reviews are not, "too good to be true." B&B Cologne is everything you could hope and wish for for your stay in this wonderful city.
Our visit coincided with the beginning of the Christmas Market events in the city and Mike very kindly marked all these sites on one of his tourist maps to help us find them, together with some of his favourite restauraunts, shopping sites, U Bahn stops, coffee shops, all the information you could need to help your visit run smoothly.
We could not have been made more welcome on our arrival at Mike's lovely appartment. Coffee, Earl Grey, home made cakes, chocolates and of course, thanks to the season, lovely Stollen were all offered immediately. Where to start?
The breakfasts were truly scrumptious, everything being freshly cooked, all the new tastes and various combinations of tastes being patiently described and all of the food being prepared by Mike himself even to the slices of fresh fruit. Take a tip from Mike here when he said, "OMG don't waste time with the muselli".
The bedroom is warm, comfortable, spotless and has one of the most relaxing double beds I have ever slept in.
The bathroom is similarly warm, spotless and with loads of hot water, lovely soft towels and all the shampoos etc you could possibly require.
The whole appartment is very well supervised by Meizze, Mike's British Smooth Hair.
Mikes suggestions for evening resaurants were really good, if you want to experience an authentic German brauhouse try the "Malzmuhle", just round the corner, ask Mike.
We had a special reason for visiting Cologne at this time, a return trip for me, so thanks Mike, your B and B, your attention to detail and especially your hospitality made this a very happy time for us. See you again in the summer.

We arrived in the rain, on bicycles, a full day early and without notice. We got warmth, welcome and a giant gray cat. A wonderful, bright room (immaculate, a view of the Dom in the distance) and care for the weary traveler. We were directed to wonderful restaurants for both nights, how to find the sights of a great, friendly city and excellent conversation and company.

Just to say that the breakfasts were "included" is a insult-they were lavish, prepared with obvious care and skill, and worth time and relaxation. More than just a wonderful place to stay, we were welcomed and cared for. Can't wait to return!!!

Great location, amazing room & facilities including walk in wardrobe if you're there for a while. Take care not to leave the bedroom door open or you may find a cat asleep in your bag! Very cute cat though.
Breakfast is incredible although far more than you could possibly eat! Take your camera to breakfast as you'll want to show people back home!

B&B Cologne is a wonderful, snug house in the center of Cologne. The Kölnmesse, the Kölner Dom, museums, the Rhine and the shopping district are located nearby. Mike was very kind to visitors, he made a warm welcome, I liked his various and tasty breakfasts. I enjoyed staying at the B&B where I could relax in cozy atmosphere after a busy day full of events in Cologne. I’ll come back with great pleasure if I visit Cologne again.

When searching on Trip advisor one can sometimes be sceptical about somewhere with masses of Five star ratings. However, having read all the reviews my wife and I decided that this had to be the place to stay when visiting Koln for the first time. Especially as it was our wedding anniversary and we wanted a treat. We were not disappointed.

B & B Cologne very firmly puts the "Breakfast" into Bed and Breakfast. I am doubtful if there is any establishment anywhere in the world that lays on a better breakfast - it is a feast! I include top rated establishments in London, New York or Paris in this. If you don't eat breakfast then this isn't the place for you.

The meal starts with freshly cooked "Liver Cheese" with an egg on top - "It's not liver and it's not cheese" Mike informed us. It was rather a tasty sausage like dish followed by a freshly prepared rosti. From here on one loses track of all the little salads, breads, cold meats and cheeses, home made conserves, yoghurt and fruit and other delights. Top off with one of Mike's other specialities a dish of freshly cooked cup cakes. This a not a meal to be rushed!

The stylish penthouse apartment is centrally located, close to the Rhine and the old town. You reach it James Bond style with your own special key in the lift. We left our car in the garage which Mike made available to us and walked everywhere during our stay.

At first glance the price might put some off, but when one takes into account the breakfast, the location and the warm welcome from Mike and Mieze the cat I doubt you will find a better place to stay. Highly recommended.

If you get such an assessment, it is initially very touched to read and gets even goosebumps. We thank you with all my heart for the wonderful words, the detailed description of your stay in our House.

They were really very pleasant guests and it was a pleasure to spoil you, especially when you realize as a host that also the little things that are pleasant a stay to be estimated and be rewarded not only with a smile or a thank you, for us. In the kitchen, standing and his guests at the sight and consumption of cooked breakfast, a melody of "Oh Ah" to hear, means for us to meet the taste of our guests and it should be our opinion. For us hospitality and a small part culinary pampering program to the maxim of our House and this is also the reason why we operate our small B & B with great passion.

We would be happy to welcome you once again with us and remain until then

With kind regards from Cologne's old town your B & B Cologne

Stayed for 4 nights with Mike, over the Cologne Marathon weekend. I’ve run out appropriate adjectives to praise the good job Mike has done. Breakfast is superb; He sometimes even provide a little something for supper; His hospitality is tops; the location of his B&B, right in the middle of town; And there’s Mieze, the house cat who you just watch and be watched.
