“Perfect Location”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

I really cannot understand the negative reviews about this hotel. It's located 150 metres from the UBahn and busy shopping street, and a 10/15 minutes walk from the Dom Hauptbanhoff. The room I stayed in was spotlessly clean and very modern. I didn't partake of the breakfast but there are many places to eat in the vicinty, including food outlets at the Hauptbanhoff. The staff were efficient and friendly. I most certainly would stay here again.

I chose this hotel as it was in a good location close to the centre and it had its own parking. The best thing about the hotel is the breakfast, a very good selection. The rooms are average, with the shower having a tendency to spout very hot water every now and then. The rooms are noisy if you have one that faces out onto the street, so beware if you are a light sleeper. Also, despite the majority of the rooms being non-smoking there was a pervasive reek in the 3 "non-smoking" rooms I booked.

Finally, if you've a car with a sports suspension you'll ground your car a few times if you park there due to steep inclines in the car park.

I had low expectations and they were met. The hotel is in a decent location and has a decent functional bar and restaurant. The hotel rooms are very dated and a tad gloomy - but clean and comfortable nonetheless. My main dissapointment was being on floor 2 I had a view of the flat roof above the reception. nothing wrong with that, other than pulling back the net curtains the roof was littered with cigarette butts, worse 2 empty condom packets.it could have been worse. It didnt really bother me as after check it I would not be at the hotel till midnight and was leaving 7am the next day. As a business hotel it was fine; if I had been with my family I would have complained for sure! This said, the staff were charming and very helpful and equally embarrased on the roof cleaning oversight. I think if I were in Cologne again I'd look for a newer smarter hotel (several nearby) but expect you pay accordingly. So dont write the Mercure off, but you'll get what you pay for and set your expectation low.

Quiet and comfortable, very nice breakfast, in good condition even though not quite new. Really nice breakfast, good service and services. Päffgen brauhaus 50meters away from the hotel, as well as Breite Strasse shopping street.

Room Tip: Very quiet rooms on back side.
