“Very good business hotel”
Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Ideal hotel for business. Close to citycenter, rooms are perfect for an one or two night stay, not very big though but suits. The free wifi is working perfectly fine. Breakfast is simple but what do you expect for €7,50, in fact it's a good buffet for that price!
All in all, very good stay for decend price. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

New, clean and ideal for a sleepover. Not central but near the main roads for a quick exit out of town. Great value for money and easy booking. Simple breakfast but all you need for 7 euro. Car park free and at front door.

We stayed with our 3 children in this hotel in February. Must say that it is not far from center, good priced, recently opened stylish hotel. Excellent for business trip. The only minus is small rooms.

Had to stay in Colonge for ProSweets trade show, looking for a reasonably priced hotel I came across Motel One, which a first did not attract me due to the word Motel. Giving it a closer look my interest returned rapidly, looked good. After reading some reviews I decided to book a room. I got a deal direct through the hotel website for €101,- including breakfast and free wifi. I must say, it was very much worth the money. Room is not too big, it has a queen bed, a small writing table and a kind of lazy seat. Flatscreen hanging on the wall oposite the bed. All I need for a decent night sleep. Bathroom has a shower only but that is always my preference. Nice big showerhead, enough room to move around and looked nice as well. Wifi was included in my rate and it was of a good and constant speed. In the morning there was a buffet breakfast, with all I can wish for. As earlier commented, the breakfast room is rather small so people are also sitting in the lobby with breakfast. However i did find a nice table and enjoyed it very much. Would I return, yes, for sure. Maybe not for a romantic getaway with my girlfriend, but for business it is worth the 4 stars!

We went to Cologne for Christmas-marketing in December 2012. When we started searching hotels, we were quite surprised by high prices. After familiarising ourselves with a city guide, we found out that Cologne is the second most expensive city in Germany rent-wise. This hotel was in the middle-range of what we looked at. We paid about £220 for 2 of us for a three-night stay. Breakfast was not included but surprisingly it cost only 7.5 euro, so we gave it a go when we arrived and, I must admit, we were not disappointed with the choice and variety of food on offer.

Rooms: it is a brand new hotel (or it was when we stayed there - opened for about 4-6 weeks at that point of time), so rooms are new but rather small. Wardrobe space was resolved in an interesting way - 3 hangers from one side of the bed and a set of shelves fit in the wall from another side. The bed was comfortable and the level of noise reduction from the street was good but not so good in the morning when people passed by our room. The shower-room was also brand new and well-equipped. The only thing we found weird about the bathroom was that instead of soap, we had to wash our hands with shampoo! I've been a frequent traveller last year and this was the last thing I would expect I needed to take with me. When the supervisor at the reception asked if we liked our room after we had checked-in, we noted the detail about the soap and he said: "Oh, no problem at all! I'll give you some soap straight away!" and handed us the same bottle with shampoo lol :) Service was great though - everyone was helpful, polite and professional. We even got free wifi passwords for all three days and for all three devices (!). However, don't leave them in your room unattended as cleaners threw ours, so we had to ask again. And luckily were not refused this favour!

The hotel is located very close to the centre, the main train station and to 3 out of many Christmas markets - be it walking or utilising taxi services. Not the most picturesque location but let me add here - Cologne in general is not the most attractive city in the world, so all in all I would not decide to go there for any other reason. And between, if you are trying to catch a taxi on a busy evening, don't attempt to stop a cab when it is going the opposite direction. It's not the UK, where you could stop a car on any side of the road and it will turn to the required direction. Annoyingly, we got asked to release our long awaited unoccupied taxi ...well, more gesticulated since we didn't speak German well.

If you are looking for a nice restaurant and a lounge bar, try Barrios and Casa Cuba, respectively.

We stayed there for just one night and had no reservation in advance. We've been served very well at the check-in and the modern hotel-room has a reasonable size. Even when facing the road (it's on the corner of two bigger roads), you couldn't hear any noise from outside.
The hotel bar with it's tall armchairs is very cosy and the cocktails and food are delicious at a reasonable price.
Though we didn't have breakfast, I'd say they have a nice and reasonable offer ... definetely worth going for.

Quite your average hotel: rooms are not too spacious but decent-sized. The hotel looks very good overall, with some nice designs in the lobby. Staff is very friendly. The hotel is located next to a fairly busy road (not disturbing though), yet close to the city center (Dom et cetera).

One sidenote: wifi doesn't come free unless you paid for a room incl breakfast. Without breakfast internet access will cost you 5 euros per 24 hours.
