Stayed here as a solo female traveler in a single the room. The room is tiny, this wasn't a problem for me but be aware that it is very small. The bathroom is private and clean. The linen is in serious need of being replaced. Neighbours were a bit noisy. Hotel is a 2km walk from the Dom / HBF so a little far but not a huge problem. Thought this was a touch pricey but then Cologne is an expensive city.

The good:- the price was around Eur55 incl breakfast. The receptionist spoke English well enough.
The room was a good size. My bed was very comfortable. I did not hear any noise from either the street, nor from other guests.

The not-so-good:- The location is OK, though a good 15 minutes walk to the Dom, so this is Ok if you aren’t carrying anything, or if you only do it once per day. If you plan on walking around the city then you need to add your to/from hotel part into the mix. As the crow flies, the distance is not too far, but the U Bahn isn’t direct, so one change is required (only a minor inconvenience). Also, there’s nowhere to leave your luggage, so we left ours at the Station (5 Euro’s for up to 24 hours). As others have said, there might not be anyone on reception at some times, so if you have questions, best ask them all when you check in :-)

Don't try to buy Groupon offer on this Hotel...Even if you try to book on dates that arenot excluded on the offer the management will put obstacles with different fake excuses...Also if you like to spend a weekend there they are asking telephone booking in order not to accept booking on weekend even if the booking is 6 months in advance....So that this offer is only for German people-and not for tourists- and may be it match only for week days...At the end do not forget that this is a 2 stars hotel and the offer price is quite the value one....

Stayed here for three nights with my mum in a twin room. The purpose of our visit was to simply have somewhere to sleep within walking distance of the Dom, while we spent our days at the Christmas markets. The hotel was excellent value - €20 per night and €7.50 for brekkie which was substantial, and better than any other breakfast in Cologne. The staff were great, ordering taxis, helping us to print boarding passes and in checking us in. Also, we forgot some shoes during our visit, and they are being sent to us by the hotel - very helpful. There was NO traffic noises outside the hotel, the heating was great, and aside from the shower being a little awkward, it was perfect for what we required.

Room Tip: There is no elevator - so make sure you request one as close to the ground floor as possible if you have a lot of luggage!

We stayed here with as 4 friends in one room.

Beds were comfy and a nice size room. A random light feature on the ceiling but was nice.

Never anyone on reception which made it difficult at times - especially when checking out. Staff were helpful to some extent but barely spoke english which made it very difficult.

Lots or road noise at night.

Make sure you carry the hotel address with you as taxi drivers mistook the road name and took us to a different road on the opposite side of the rhine!

Cologne is beautifu and well worth a visit however a hotel closer to the cathedral would probably be better as that is where everything is. We found it to be about a 15 minute walk at a relatively fast pace.
