“Excellent - would stay here again”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Stayed at the Koenigshof for two nights in July 2013 (apologies for late review!). Stayed in a single room. Thought that the single room was a little small but it was certainly clean and comfortable. Breakfast excellent with plenty of choice. Staff friendly, helpful, etc.

Location-wise, you won't get much better than this. Only a few minutes walk from the main railway station, the cathedral, the shopping centre and the Rhine. There are some lovely bars/resturants next to the Rhine which are worth a visit. Great to have a few beers there in the summer sunshine and watch the boats go by, people watch and so on.

Would I stay at the Koenigshof again on my next trip to Cologne? Yes, certainly. I doubt I would stay anywhere else.

Easy to find, it's a few minutes walk to the Dom and the main shopping streets are literally around the corner. Friendly, helpful staff, we booked a room online and we were very lucky and got a suite which was spotlessly clean, breakfast was lovely, varied and plentiful. If you are driving, there is a parkhaus nearby and the hotel will clip your ticket so you get a discount.

Great hotel, good value for city centre and we would definitely recommend and stay again when we next visit.

We arrived by train to Cologne and found our way easily to this hotel; so close to the Dom and the main railway station. We were able to get into our rooms at 11:30, bonus. The single bedrooms are small but have everything you need. We had no difficulty with the Wifi at all but again we were only there one night. The main shopping area was so close to the hotel, easy to walk. Breakfast was excellent, no lunch needed afterwards. We were surprised there was no provision for toasting any bread to have with our scrambled eggs. The Metro was easily accessed from the main station, worthwhile taking the cable car across the Rhine. The reception staff were polite but not overly friendly. I would stay here again, the hotel is good value and the location is excellent.

A group of four guys sharing some time together in Cologne over a beer or two. This place was perfect, well located, some breakfast, decent rooms. A special mention for the delightful bar girl who works late on Saturday night.

All in all, highly recommended...

I chose Cologne to spend a few days as a tourist. I couldn`t have missed the hotel, as it`is situated close to the railway station and to the Dome. The busy Hohe Strasse is 200 meteres away.
I liked the single room, though it is not big, it is quite compact; the bathroom with a shower cabin is new and clean. The breakfast is plentiful.
What I didn`t like about the room was a cigarette smoke odour. And also I consider the hotel receptionist to be unfriendly towards me.

The location of that hotel is exactly what you would like while staying in Cologne. Whether for holiday or business. 2 minutes walk to Dome Square and the Dome itself, museums and all attractions are in walking distance. Koln Messe is across the river - 15 minutes walk.
Surrounding area is full of different eateries with various cuisine. Main train station is around the corner.

The hotel is of a very traditional German type. Small clean rooms, comfortable bedding, great Bfast. Reception personnel were men over their 50s, with different smiling ability :). Free wifi, but need to pick up log in details from reception on daily basis.

Would stay again if happen to stay in Koln.

Room Tip: Both sides if the hotel will be exposed to the Dome bells work, but the front will add the street no...
