I visited Cologne for the first time for a conference and booked Hotel Buchholz for two nights. The hotel is within a short walking distance from the city centre, and the Expo centre, and the hotel is generally in a good spot just one block from the river.
The hotel is small and cozy and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I had booked a single room, which was small as expected. The shower/toilet was very small also however the towels and bathroom was very clean, as was the room and the entire hotel for that matter.
Really the only downside for me was the lack of a proper table and chair for late night work. The wifi was also a bit slow for my liking so I couldn't really do much work in the room. There are plenty of hotspot locations around Cologne so you can go to a cafe and work from there if your hotel is not equiped for online professionals.
