Excellent river location near Cologne hbf. Nice walk by the river to the hotel but challenging to wheel suitcases along the cobblestone paths. No lift so good workout carrying suitcases up the stairs to either level 1 (rooms 1 and 2), level 2 (rooms 3 and 4) or level 3 (rooms 5 and 6). 6 rooms in all. Even-numbered rooms have beautiful river view but may get noisy at night because of nearby restaurants. This is a no-frill, very clean and comfortable hotel, but no water or tea-making facilities, no air-con, and basic toiletries.

Room Tip: Room 2 has a nice river view at the lowest level, since no lftt.

Without knowing it, I reserved a room at Hayk second time (after staying there in 2007). Our company had 4 people and we took one of the apartments (the one located on Lintgasse). First of all I want to mention an ideal location of hotel and apartments in the heart of Cologne historic town (points of interest, including Dom, restaurants, shops, central railway station, everything at hand) on the bank of Rhine. Our apartment was a fairly spacious flat, clean and neat, with two bedrooms and small kitchen (sink, fridge, microwave). Nothing special but served our purpose well. We didn't have the breakfast option but if you want you can have breakfast at hotel's building for extra payment. For those who can't live without internet - there is none in the apartments, only in the main building.

The hotel is located in the old centre (Altstadt) of Cologne at the Rhein river. In front of the hotel you can sit and watch the river and some of the skyline of Cologne. It's also nice to stroll along the river, which is carfree. The service was good. The room we stayed in was nice with enough space. Breakfast cost a additional 8 euro pp. We decided to eat in the city. It's a very good place to see the city. The Dom (Cologne Cathedral) is within 5 minutes walk. There is a underground parkinggarage 200 mtrs away (you can't park your car at the hotel).
They have WiFi but it costs 5 euros. The downside was, that the connection in our (top)room was nihil.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom appartment with teenaged boys for a visit to Gamescom. The appartment was set back a little from the main eateries, which meant that while we had the 'buzz' on the doorstep, we didn't have to listen to it all night.
The appartment was a no-frills, no-fuss but economical and well situated base to go and explore the local area from. The only downside was a temperamental shower - but it did provide some entertainment!

The hotel staff were friendly and relaxed, we stayed in an apartment a few stairs and streets from the main hotel building. the room was clean with some eclectic furniture. and the location in the old town was good. However, the shower was difficult to work to the right temperature, the entrance to our apartment was down a little alley and our son was kept awake by the raucous singing form the beir keller down the road. Cologne seemed to be being dug up but we enjoyed our stay. Rhine boat trip was cool.

The main hotel faces the Rhein river. It is a very quick walk from the Dom (about 5-10 minutes) and the fantastic shopping and restaurants in and around Hohe Strasse. We checked in at about 2:45pm and the lady who helped us was absolutely lovely! I believe she was Russian and we spoke only in German and communicated fine but I don't know if they speak English.

We booked the 3 room apartment. The two main rooms were IKEA furnished and very clean and tidy with a kettle, coffee maker and plates/cutlery/glasses. The small third room had a sofa that was perfect for my 5 yr old to sleep on. The small room itself had some tiles that could use replacement.

The hotel is in a great location and that was a huge plus for our family of five as we traveled with small children. It was incredibly easy to get around Cologne and to the Dom and Ubahn. We stayed only one night and it was a good price (€135). Would definitely stay again.

The apartments are in a separate building about 100 metres away from the main hotel. This was no problem for us but while the apartments themselves were good inside, the hallway and entrance to the building were a little off putting. It could definitely use a coat of paint. We were pleased with the condition of the room however. Ours raised the Puppen Spiele (Puppet Theatre).

We rented one of the hotel's apartments, and it was spacious enough for 4 people. The walk from the train station/Dom was quick. The apartment was a very short walk from the hotel, and it bordered on Salzgasse = GREAT LOCATION.
The building could use some TLC, but the apartment itself was uncluttered and clean. It had a small balcony, a fridge, and a washer/dryer, so you could be comfortable for an extended stay.
