We stayed in Köln for 2 days in August, we chose Fair and More hotel because of the parking possibilities, location and also price. As we came by car, there were enough hotel parking spaces on the street as well as under jutting roof in front of the hotel. And that all free of charge! hotel is separated in two bulildings, lower art style one with four stars and larger one (7 floors) with three stars. We stayed in larger,cheaper one. The reception stuff was extremly friendly and helpful, all the time of our stay. we were given the room in 4th floor, overlooking some other '50 style apartment buildings, but there is a lot of green surfaces everywhere and the hotel is taller than other buildings, so, no problem. Room was completely new refurbished, bathroom was almost larger than the room itself, which was rather small. But very bright, because of the large windows. Breakfast was in our building (for both buildings), very rich, very good in a modern dinning room in the lobby. hotel itself was very empty at the time only few rooms were taken. We were the only guests in our ward of 4th floor!
The location of the hotel is really close to the fair grounds, about 5-10 minute walk, I recon it gets more crowded when there is a fair going on. Otherwise it lies in now an immigrant neighbourhood called Stegerwaldsiedlung, but it seems completely safe and quiet even at night. The city center can be reached with tram, which is about 5 minute walk form the hotel or by walking, which takes you about 30 minutes or more to the cathedral. There is also a pharmacy and a grocery store near by the hotel. Hotel itself does not have free WiFi, but there is one laptop in the lobby with free internet, which is always available.
The only thing that bothered us was that, there is no restaurant in or nearby hotel. If you want to go to dinner, you need to walk to neighbourhood Deutz (20 minute walk) or go to city center. The hotel offers just some not very good pizzas from microwave.
All in all, good and quiet hotel with a free parking in central Cologne. I recommend!
