This is a small boutique hotel at the northwest of the old town, close to Media Park. It is around 5 minutes walk to the one of the old city gates, and very close to the subway (U-bahn, stop: Christopstr) and 15 min-walk to the train (S-bahn, stop: Hansaring) (Google maps says 10min - but with luggage and traffic lights around 15min.)
The location is not the greatest for a tourist, but as Koln is a small city it's within walking distance to the city centre (15-20 min - or get a multi-ticket from the convenience store around the corner and take the U-bahn on a cold/bad weather day).
The decoration is an "antique" style which is the main charm of the hotel. The suite is very nicely decorated and spacious, with a balcony for the smokers and a small but functional bathroom. Toilet is separate at the front. However as it's an old building I suspect each room layout maybe different. Despite it's an old building there is a (small) lift so you don't have to carry your luggage up the stairs.
Agree with other reviews that lack of air-conditioning and squeaky bed could be a problem. As I stayed during winter it's not much of an issue.
The breakfast, though simple, has some great variety and the produces are high quality. From cold (cereal, yogurt, etc) to hot (bacon, scrambled eggs), to continental bread and spreads (different handmade jams, nutella etc).
