“Great location for Dom and train station”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We spent 4 nights at this hotel and were quite pleased with our experience. Given its great location (a block away from both the train station and the cathedral Dom), I was pleasantly surprised that there was little to no noise at night to disturb your sleep. We saw the cathedral from many angles and during many times of day given our hotel location.

The rooms are quite small, but not uncomfortably so. The light fixtures were more recently updated, but the furniture was quite out of date (a built in clock radio on the bed, whoo!). Our toilet broke the first day we were there - but we told the front desk and they had it fixed by the time we got back from dinner. There was some smoke smell each time we entered our room, but opening the window and turning on the fan quickly remedied that and it was not a nuisance at all.

I will admit that the small elevator scared us so much the first time that we opted to go up the stairs with our luggage instead of the elevator. We did eventually take a risk used the elevator and it does work, even though it was highly questionable when on the first floor and the back door was not completely closed (the elevator has doors on both sides).

We opted out of the breakfast at the hotel and instead explored the city in the mornings to find food - but looking into the breakfast room it always looked clean and well stocked.

If you are traveling by train and want to focus on old town, I would recommend this hotel.

Top location at 100 metres from both Clogne Cathedral and main station, many rooms are renevertheless quiet and cosy, albeit forcibly spartan ... and too warm, this explains the presence of ventilators in each room.

Breakfast deserves praise because of dimensions and variety, prine was 55 Euros (HRS reservation) including breakfast

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room (and check your room, the courteous personnel was able to offer me a better one...

We took a risk with this hotel and were positively surprised.
Staff were friendly, the rooms were nice and clean, laminate floors, with decent furniture for a low-end hotel.
It was perfect for a night-out in cologne when all we needed was a bed for a few hours.
I would stay there again.

We spent 5 nights here. The room and hotel is basic, but we spent little time there. The location was perfect, just steps from the central train station and the Dom. If you want to be within walking distance to everything this is a great choice.

Not the first time we have stayed at the Central Am Dom, and it certainly wont be the last! Ideally located to the Cental railway station, main shopping areas and tourist sites, this is a perfect place to stay when in Koln. The service is friendly, the breakfast delicious.... nothing to complain about from us!

Restroom is not suitable for tall person, very hard to take shower and too tiny restroom. TV doesn't work at all, some area in the hotel doesn't has good telephone (mobile). You get 25mins free Internet wifi, additional charge 10€ for 24hrs but the speed is not same as the free Internet.

I stayed here for one night, on a trip with friends. They all stayed at the Hilton, but that was three times the price of this hotel and only 200 yards away. The hotel cost £55 for the night, which in comparison to other hotels in the area is very cheap.
The room was basic, but very clean and the bed was comfortable with very clean linen and a duvet. The room had tea/coffee making facilities. A surprise was that the room had a shared bathroom, fortunately no one was staying in the other room.
The staff were very friendly and the breakfast, although basic was enjoyable and included in the price.
The hotel is approximately 500 yards from the train station and about the same to the cathedral, the shopping area and the beer halls. So, very central.
It is ideal for those only spending a night or two in Cologne and just want somewhere clean and comfortable for the night, probably not ideal for a long stay.
