Very friendly staff, quiet and comfortable room, very close to the city center. We did have some trouble keeping the bathroom dry after showering. As a little remark I might suggest choosing another brand of showering cream/shampoo. I would advise this hotel to my famliy and friends!

For a visit to Cologne you could not find a better appointed hotel at a fabulous price. Both the Alt Markt and the beautiful cathedral are but moments away. The greeting from Michael was most helpful; the room was very clean and welcoming; the breakfast presented by Manfred was excellent. I could not rate this higher.

Location was a short walk from the train station (when you know where to go) and an even easier one stop subway ride. After hours check in procedure was spelled out in detail by email and worked exactly as described. Breakfast buffet was exceptional, especially the baked goods. Staff extremely helpful in suggesting restaurants and things to see and do....

I recently stayed at Stern am Rathaus for 2 nights, and I could not speak more highly of the experience. Excellent location, but the hospitality is what set it apart - friendliest and most welcoming staff I've encountered in quite some time. Ingmar was full of helpful suggestions and advice for my quick stay. A great breakfast is included with...

I was originally going to give Stern am Rathaus 4 stars purely based on the fact that the room may be a little too small for some travellers but to be honest you should only be using the room to sleep. Located on a quiet street but steps away from the major sights, bars and restaurants, and 10 minutes walk...
