My friend and I were on a short trip to Cologne for the Christmas markets and wanted somewhere central and of a good standard. This hotel wasn't anything special but it was clean and central to the station and the cathedral. The reception staff when we arrived weren't particularly helpful by this I mean we had to ask about everything. wifi, breakfast time, location etc. The beds were comfortable but the pillows were so flat and thin even asking for extra didn't help so I ended up rolling my coat and towel up and putting under the pillow. Breakfast was average other reviews raved about the good breakfast unfortunately I cannot do the same. The hotel was busy the markets I guess and when going for breakfast at 8.45 both mornings we had to constantly ask for thing to be replenished and this took so so long. The choice was ok if you could get it. We were both hoping to have a good breakfast to last us through our days out this was not possible. All in all an ok place to stay.
