Close to Dom / Railway station / Beer museum / shopping streets / view to Rin , clean room, and a very good restaurant with an excellent coffee. Absolutely nothing to complain for a 3 start hotel, except maybe the price (200 Eur /night) - due to positioning (probably) . Must go in restaurant even if you have another hotel...

We did not stay at the hotel. Stopped at the restaurant in back for lunch with co-workers. Service was so-so. The food was mediocre. The steak special was bone-in but after the bone and fat were removed there was not much meat left. The wiener schnitzel was dry and likely started out frozen. The pizzas were tasty. The view of...

Was here late summer. We had the last room available with view on the Rijn for just 70 euro or so . Room was spacious, and equipped with large flatscreen. Especially the friendliness and the service in the restaurant was fantastic. Location is ideal for sightseeing and shopping.

The area is nice if you like walking on the banks of the river. Otherwise, just not worth staying there. I booked a single bedroom, which has a bed (luckily), a full desk, a chair, and a bathroom, according to the website. The room I was offered had no desk, nor even a small table. Just the room for a...

Perfect location in Cologne. If you are okay with having to walk a couple blocks with luggage to get to the hotel and then have to carry bags up a few flights of stairs (we were on the 5th floor / top floor) then this is a perfect place to be. The restaurant itself downstairs is nice and has a...

Do not use this hotel. For one thing it's not especially pleasant (the bathrooms on the other side of the corridor are not properly ventilated and extremely hot and quite grubby). The local carpark is not that local, and the wifi is lousy and expensive. More significantly the management of this hotel are dishonest. I'm currently fighting them for repayment...

Upon entering the Lowenbrau restaurant one is instantly charmed! We booked this hotel on a whim for one night and wished we had more time to stay, the staff was helpful in our late check in and early check out by having the staff at the restaurant grant us our keys. Although we had a few flights of stairs and...

Good service and very good restaurant. Strange enough the breakfast is more expensive for people that stay in the hotel, for people having breakfast but sleeping some where else pay 2 euro less. There can be noise from the streets, but this depënds on location of your window, windows facing riverside are fine.

Can't comment on the hotel but we dined in a lovely restaurant next door and went into Der Lowenbrau for a few drinks after dinner. We were with another couple and after checking the drinks menu (Whiskey was €3.95) we ordered two beers and two whiskey and cokes. We had four drinks each over the next three hours and then...

Whilst visiting cologne for 3 days we dined at the restaurant in this hotel for 2 consecutive nights. Located in the pretty Altstadt right beside the Rhein it is an enviable setting. The waiting staff were very polite and welcoming. The food was served very quickly and very hot! A good variety on the menu. After the first night we...
