The location is excellent - 15min walk to Koln HBF. Unfortunately, not next to any tram or bus line...so the closest you can get to the hotel is 10min walk away (or by taxi). We got rooms on 3rd floor...no elevator so had to hike up with suitcases. Tiny room but tastefully done. No fridge/coffee/bar etc. The staff is very... More

There was really nothing wrong with the establishment but the place is in need of a revamp and the wifi didn't work very well in our room. The staff were friendly though and the location ideal, close the the train stop and 15 minute walk from the centre of the city.

A couple of items up front: the staff is polite and the hotel and rooms are really clean. The location isn't bad with access to the underground rail close by and the Old Town a 15-minute walk away. There is also no AC but that's actually a common thing in Cologne outside of the largest global franchise hotels. My main... More

When we arrived here we waited 15 minutes at the front door ringing the bell. The cleaner opened the door to us then up a flight of stairs to wait for another person to slowly emerge from a back room. We were told we had to pay the whole cost of the stay plus city tax upfront for our stay,... More

My single room was clean and had a shower, towels, a tv with a wc outside. The guy on reception was amiable enough if not that chatty. Free wifi which worked everywhere. Key to the front door so you can be as late back as you want. The hotel is located about 15/20 min walk from the central station but... More

Nice little hotel but very basic but reflected by the price. Stayed with my teenage son for a Bundesliga football visit and had room 16, with twin beds. No kettle provided and was on first floor at front and directly outside of the window was the hotel sign which was fully illuminated at night making the room very light so... More

Advantages: free Internet with very good signal; towels are changed every day as well as the room is cleaned every day; there is a small fridge where you can store some food. Disavantages: there are no stairs...they have 5 floors; ther is no microwaves.

The hotel is in a great location for a short stay in Cologne. Basic, but it has everything you need. We stayed in room # 1 which even had a small kitchenette hidden in one of the closets! Clean and a small bathroom, but I would definately stay there again for a short city break.

This hotel is in a nice neighbourhood about a 20 minute walk from the cathedral and other central attractions. There are plenty of surrounding bars and restaurants in close proximity to the hotel. The hotel in general was fine but very basic, we arrived after the check in deadline but they somehow managed to let us in and get us... More

Very clean but if you are old like us would not recommend. When your bottom when sitting on edge of bed is 1ft of the floor very hard work to stand up. Our stay marred by occupant of room between us had television on all night. Staff very nice,
