Nice clean room. Friendly enough stuff. Good breakfast. The only inconvenience for me was that I could hear the trains from time to time. But I'm the type of person that sleeps with the head under the pillow because I hear everything and I don't have a very deep sleep.

Nice Hotel...I've been there in April for some nights with my friend and we enjoyed our trip in Cologne also by staying in this Hotel. Very closed to the centre of Cologne, you can reach it only in five minutes by walk. Very cleaned rooms, there is a day by day cleaning service room. The staff is very polite and...

I stayed at the Hotel Cristall for 3 days in March 2017. It was a good choice: a convenient room, delicious breakfast, good transportation nearby and very helpful staff. I had a room with a window to a quiet yard, and my sleep was perfect. I think I'll stay in this hotel the next March too.

I had a small room; maybe 14x8 foot (not exact measurements) for $183.75/one night. I have no problem with that size; or even smaller but, the cost did't equal the value I received per my stay. My window faced other hotel windows from rooms that was 20 feet away with construction scaffolding on my own outer window. Staff was great;...

Th3re is nothing negative I could say about this place. Check in was swift and friendly. My room was newly refurbished. I could even smell the new furniture. Spotless clean. Space ok and a cupboard big enough to hold the content of a big suitcase. Bed very comfortable, even aircon for the summer available. Breakfast small selection but yummy and...

My wife and I went to Cologne in early December for a few days to visit the Christmas Markets. We wanted an inexpensive hotel but close to shopping. The hotel is fine, clean, the staff friendly, but you are almost in a residential area, and have to walk 4 or 5 blocks to get to restaurants, transportation and shopping. 5...

I arrived in Cologne at the Hauptbahnhof - the hotel is an easy 10 minute walk from the station. Check in was straightforward, and the room (a single) was comfortable and spacious. The room was quiet, but I was on the quiet side of the hotel, away from the main road. The continental breakfast was good, although there wasn't a...

Stayed here to go to some xmas markets. Location is fab- a short walk to the Cathedral and centre of town. Couldn't hear the traffic/ people/ trains at all from my room which is particularly good at night time. Staff were helpful and hotel was well cleaned and kept to a high standard. If I visited cologne again I'd certainly...
