This hotel is excellent. Next to the S-Bahn station which takes you straight into Köln Hauptbahnhof. Hotel staff are helpful and friendly. Accommodation is of an unusual but tasteful decor. As soon as you walk in, you sense space, light and freshness. Bedrooms are spacious, comfortable and furnished in a contemporary style. Just be careful you don't have a flood in the bathroom as it has the type of walk-in shower with no lip on the tray at the bottom and a 2" gap at the bottom of the shower door! The wash-hand basin is rather small and a bit like a skillet in shape! But then I am a man and make a mess in the bathroom anyway!
Only the reception area has air-conditioning. The hotel is spotlessly clean. The German breakfast is excellent with a huge choice and included in the reasonable price. Do reserve a parking space in the underground car-park. It is very secure with lift to all floors. It is worth the €8 per night as the surrounding streets are busy or residential.
Highly recommended.

I've stayed here a couple of years ago and it was good to be back in Hotel UHU in Dellbruck. The area itself is about 15 minutes by S-Bahn from the city center of Cologne, and the hotel is less than 5 minutes away from the train station (yet there's no noise from the trains). Furthermore, the hotel is located near some nice restaurants and cafes (be sure to check out Cantina Latino Mexicana for a drink).

The staff has been friendly and helpful and rooms were just fine. Clean, light and well furnished; just what you need after a long day of meetings or strolling through Cologne.

Breakfast was good with various kinds of food (dairy products, various cheeses, breads, fruits, sausages etc).

Another nice plus is the free internet during your stay.

Chose the Uhu for its proximity to Bergisch Gladbach. Pleasant hotel, spacious clean room, breakfast good. Residential area with not much going on.

Note that reception is not staffed after 21h so notify if you arrive late.
Wifi is free but you have to ask for a code at reception, and 1 code = 1 device so if both you and your wife want to use the internet get two
Hotel parking costs extra so better reserve in advance, also smallish if you have a big car

This hotel was convenient for our party but we would not otherwise have chosen it; it is neither in central Cologne nor near any particular attraction. But it offered comfortable spacious accommodation, a good breakfast and very close proximity to the S-line station on the line into central Cologne. If you have a reason to be here, this is a good choice of hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly.

No major change from the previous reviews.
The hotel is primarily a business hotel with cheaper weekend rates. Hotel has its own garage(extra charge) and there is street parking around the area.

Would recommend the Knippschild restaurant across the street good food and the kitchen stays open late.

What a nice little place to stay in Cologne.. Nothing fancy, nothing too much but good rooms, clean and quiet. The owner is nice as well as almost all his team. The only thing not fun was the waiter for the breakfast. Too serious.. Not smiley at all.. Hardly say a word.. Make you feel like your not welcome contrary to the rest of the staff which are very warmth and welcoming..
