We wanted a convenient base for a quick stop in this historical city and this hotel was perfect. It is within easy walking distance to world-class museums, the river, restaurants, as well as the stupendous Cathederal. The room was scrupulously clean with a sleek modern bathroom. The breakfast was wonderful and the entire staff was delightful.

We ended a multi-week trip around Netherlands and Germany with two days in Köln, arriving at our quiet, well appointed hotel right in the heart of the old town center was a relief. Both of our hosts were friendly and warm, which after weeks in Germany we found to be an anomaly among Germans. The lobby is modern and dare...

Dear Jeremy Bradford P, thank you so much for sharing your feedback and of course for your kind words. We are thrilled and humbled by your and several other raving reviews.

Love this boutique hotel, the room size is just nice and pillows are comfortable. However, it will be great if the hotel has installed a lift in the property. I had requested for a high floor and to my horror, there is no lift available. Needless to say, we had a tough time lugging the suitcase up the stairs. Nevertheless,...

We visited Cologne for the Easter break. Fantastic city to visit with great museums (especially Museum Ludwig and the National Socialist Documentation Centre) and a wealth of bars and restaurants all in walking distance of the Hotel, plus the most amazing range of shops, all within easy reach of city centre.
