“Great Hotel in Cologne”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

We stayed at the Hotel Krone on my first trip to Cologne. The location is great, walking distance to everything. The room was small but very clean and the staff extremely attentive. We would definitely stay there again on a future trip to Cologne.

After reading the other reviews on here, we weren't expecting our room or bathroom to be on the large side; however, we were pleasantly surprised - while they may have been a little small, it wasn't as cramped as we'd feared. We tended to use the hotel as a base from which to do sightseeing and shopping, as it's only minutes walk from the Cathederal, the main shopping streets, or the Christmas Markets. For this purpose you couldn't wish for better, being able to go back to the room as often as needed to drop off the latest haul as one's arms begin to tire; once back in for the final time at night, it wasn't long before we got a good night's sleep (each and every night we were there), so we didn't require the extra floor space that may have been useful if we'd have wanted to practise a dance routine, or whatever else other people want to get up to who complain about the lack of room!

The staff, without exception, were extremely friendly and answered any questions in a knowledgeable manner; the breakfasts were filling and VERY tasty! The hotel was clean (but without the 'clinical feel' that many larger chains have. The only quibble that we had was that there was no 'welcome-tray' or kettle; although a bottle of water was supplied which could be purchased if required.

All-in-all, an excellent place to stay, in what must be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. We're already saving up for our next visit!

My wife and me stayed here for a long weekend away to visit the Christmas markets. The hotel is small and very friendly and right in the centre of Cologne. We could see one of the markets from our bedroom window which looked beautiful at night when it was all light up.
Highly recommend this hotel to anyone longing for a perfect base for a weekend in cologne.

We had a magical few days, our first visit to the Christmas Markets.
Our hotel was in a perfect position, friendly staff, clean rooms (though small) and we were in the back of the hotel and it was quiet. Thank you.
