I don't agree with the positive reviews of this place. It's got a fantastic location (5 min walk from the cathedral) true but that's abou it. Their toilet were smelly both in the room and the common toilets. Maybe they had a temporary problem with the sewage but it was awful and we had to always make sure the bathroom door was closed. Most of the hotel faces an incredibly noisy street and we could not open the window as cars were passing. If it's not cars it's trains as it's opposite a rail track. Decor in the rooms is a total back to the 80s with old TV sets and odd decoration. Cleanliness was ok but we found some hair on the bed (presumably from the cleaners). Service is ok but never a smile and the staff do not go out of their way to help you. I asked for some info on parking and was met with a blank stare. We slept awfully and the only positive thing other than location is breakfast...but i would suggest you look elsewhere in Köln.
