I was in Cologne for a conference, so I wanted a hotel near the touristic part of town. The location is great as you have restaurants and the Rhine on your door step. Also the subway station is next to the hotel, making it easy to get around. The room was clean and modern. There wasn't much noise from the...

A very nice and cozy hotel. The location was perfect, service was super and breakfast fine. All important tourist attraction and the river were near so was the shopping area. And lots of restaurants, too.

Small, intimate 8-room hotel in an excellent location. Wonderful breakfast, great service, clean, comfortable rooms. The owners have gone out of their way to make guests welcome & 'connected', with special touches like a patron for each room making a special connection to Koln & its history. The breakfast buffet was plentiful, yet there is also an excellent cooked breakfast...

There is nothing to say but excellent. Perfect in every way. But a bigger TV would have been nice and a door too the toilet so you had more privacy but all in all I loved this place. I can only recommend it to others.

Michael & Manfred took a real interest in our visit to Koln and made excellent recommendations for restaurants and galleries. In particular, Michael made a special effort to tell us about a symphony concert that will be a highlight of our trip. The hotel itself has an excellent location, and they provide brilliant directions from the train station. The rooms...

Manfred & Michael were really good hosts- considerate and flexible. Their breakfast was quite special. Good use of space in brilliant location for exploring central Cologne. Only small thing was would have liked a bit more shower power.
