This is a great hotel for a city break in Cologne. The staff were really friendly and the room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The (included) continental breakfast had a good variety and a huge pot of coffee between us :) The hotel is in a really convenient location for the station, the main sights, shopping and eating. Everything is...

Don't be put off by the external entrance - it looks like a lorry has driven into it! The staff are friendly, the rooms are tiny but clean and the hotel is warm. The towels provided are a bit like cardboard and my tap was a bit eratic but the hotel was ideal for a one night stay and just...

The room was very old fashioned but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included but we unfortunately missed it as we were at a beer festival the evening before. It was a little pricey for what it was, however, the location was absolutely amazing! 5-10 minutes from the central station and cathedral/Rhine. It was also in the heart of the...

We visited Cologne last week to see the Christmas markets and we booked this hotel based purely on location & price. I had concerns about the hotel from looking at previous reviews, but since we just wanted somewhere central to come back to for one night we decided to go ahead and book. The outside of the hotel isn't much...

We only stayed in the hotel for one night, but it was perfect. The staff were happy and helpful and gave us all the information we needed and the rooms were fully functional with comfortable beds. The hotel is within walking distance to a wide range of facilities including the Xmas markets, shopping, restaurants and the night life. Will definitely...

Hotel is centrally located close to neumarkt and main shopping area. Few minutes away from the Dom Cathedral. I stayed in single room which was very small and internet access was not good at all from the room i was (313). If you come ot hotel after 9pm you will find it close. So its important to ask reception from...

I have been here once in September for business. It is fairly close to centre and the market and maybe even good value for money if you are a German or Nothern European. Breakfast was ok, WiFi w/ extra charge but the smell from the carpet was indescribable!

When Cologne is very busy you may need to pay a lot, or lower your standards, to get somewhere central - which the Arde certainly is - although the price may not reduce much. But try not to go this far down. Supposedly a 2-star, the only almost-good things in the Arde were the breakfast and Wi-Fi. My room was...
