This hotel was a bit awkward to find, if only because we don't know Cologne well at all and we weren't sure where the hotel's garage was. First impressions of the hotel were very good. Modern look, pleasant and helpful staff and a very secure garage once we got checked in. The corridors were compact, and the rooms weren't massive but they were more than enough for a couple of nights and were entirely comfortable. There was a Nespresso machine that had a couple of pods with it (additional pods were available for a charge...) The bathroom was really nice and modern with good facilities. It's close to an U-Bahn Station, and a large Rewe supermarket, as well as local restaurants, bars and shops. On returning to the hotel after dinner we had a drink in the bar which was OK - nice and quiet. As others have mentioned, the air conditioning wasn't working, and it did make for quite a warm night, particularly as there was a lot of building work going on across the road from the hotel so we didn't really want to open the window as we would be woken by the noise in the morning. Also, the bed was a little hard for my tastes, so as a result, the sleep quality wasn't quite what it could have been.
Breakfast was excellent, and the pancakes were a nice touch. There was free wifi throughout the hotel which worked excellently. All in all, despite the aircon, I would recommend this hotel and we would stay there again when in Cologne.
