The guy at the reception was excellent in all respects. Breakfast was great too. Location is very good.
The fact that there are too many stairs and no lift. No assistance to take luggage up the stairs. Towels should be changed more often.
Very convenient to the downtown cafes and restaurants and only a few minutes ride by taxi from the train station. Location was quiet, the room was spacious and the breakfast was excellent. The front desk is not staffed 24 hours, but the late check-in was very simple to accomplish and without any problems. Excellent value and I would stay there again.
The location is very good, 10 minutes walk from the city center; the breakfast was very good and staff was very nice
Internet connection was slow
Counter staff was more friendly than those I would get at the hostel. He was not only administratively good, he pointed out good spots, on top of the usual touristy places, for my friend and I to visit which made our visit to Cologne a very enriching one. He also told us how we could get good traditional German food just round the corner. English was good and easy to understand. When we got back late, they were also around to help us with our lights as we jus didn't know how to work around getting it on! Had a good spread of breakfast and the same staff prepared and ensured everyone had their fill. Very accommodating to our request to leave our luggage at the hotel before coming back late to collect them. No complaints and offered me stamps for free when I needed them. Excellent service as compared to most German places. Rooms are relatively clean and beds are very comfortable. Gave me and my friend a good rest.
There's a drinking place nearby, so it can be pretty noisy at night if you leave the window open for some air. Weekends I guess.
Bathroom was just what I like in Germany. TV had CNN and BBC. Breakfast was comprehensive and the restaurant was right there. Central location next to Neumarkt which is a transportation nexus 2 stops from the Koelner Dom (centre of town). Museums walkable. Restos and shopping 1/2 block away. Staff remarkably friendly and cooperative.
No elevator (but I'm older so that may be stilted). No WiFi, which could be remedied by a PC in the ground floor.
Friendly staff, great location, close to the old city center and tram hub but still a quiet street. Excellent breakfast.
A bit of a walk from the train station and lots of stairs if you're in an upper room.
Friendly staff, clean quiet room. Good central location
Basically a tourist class hotel, comfortable but no frills
1) Location at Neumarkt was terrific--easy to walk in multiple directions. Transit options were excellent--subway, tram, & bus--just half a block away. 2) Life is outdoors in the summer, so cafe/bar hubbub is hard to escape...somewhat quieter here. 3) Hotel was VERY clean; furnishings fairly new; room was quite spacious. 4) Owner thoughtfully had fan in the room upon arrival for unusual hot weather. 5) Breakfast was good with lots of options.
Facts of Life--charm vs. convenience: 1) Many older, small hotels have no air-conditioning. We appreciated that the owner already had a fan in the room. 2) Narrow stairs/spaces make elevators almost impossible to install. Owner put us on a low floor--nice touch.
friendly staff parking lot close by (& daily rate = reasonable) location close to Neumarkt (public transport hub)
no elevator sound isolation between rooms very poor
The staff were very very friendly ! Made me feel at home . The breakfast was rich and tasty . Rooms r clean
Very friendly staff! great, hearty breakfast. the owner is very kind and hospitable
Location was excellent...right in the middle of Cologne city. The hosts are very helpful and have a smile on their faces! Parking Lot is right in front of the hotel. Hotel prices are reasonable.
Toilets were dirty...we even asked the staff to clean it, but no action was taken. There is no elevator. We had to carry our heavy luggage 3 floors up/down via stairs.
Good breakfast. Good location for undergound/Trains. Restauants close by.
Room was not ready cleaned when I arrived (6pm). Room on 4th floor with access by narrow steps and no lift. Hotel closes at 9.00pm and bar closed. No english channels available and TV a small 14". Very expensive for the services offered.
Fantastic staff and support.
Very reasonable price for a hotel so close to city center, nice breakfast
4 floors without elevator (however staff carried luggage upstairs), little noisy neighborhood
Excellent and friendly staff. Nice clean rooms.
The noise at night. We almost didn't close an eye during the night because of all the noise from the outside. Our room was facing the street which was obviously the meeting point for all kind of people during the night listening to loud music and shouting at each other. Might be different during the week (it was a saturday evening) but it was definitely the worst experience we have ever had in a hotel. Then it doesn't help to have a nice room and good service if you can't sleep at night.
close to shopping area, close to U-bahn, very friendly staff
a little bit noisy of surrounding area, but it is not big problem when the window closed
Perfect location for Christmas markets and Cologne sightseeing. Fantastic staff, excellent breakfast, clean, large rooms, very good Italian restaurant on main floor.
The stuff was very helpful even though not all of them could speak English :-) Very nice & clean rooms. Perfect location.
No lift. Kind of expensive.
Very helpfull and friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Parking just across the street and very close to shopping area.
Extremely helpful and friendly staff. One of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. Great Italian restaurant. Excellent breakfast. Good location just off Neumarkt
All good really. Only minor quibble is that we are not so keen on the individual duvets
Spacious, light room. Modern bathroom. Good location (2 stops from Cologne main station with underground lines 16 or 18). You can easily walk from here to the Dome through the pedestrian zone.
There's no lift - which is only really a problem if you have a lot of luggage, I guess.
Friendly and pleasant.
Great value and location, just a block from the Newmarkt transit hub and the main shopping district. The manager was very congenial and helpful. Hearty breakfast included. Would definitely stay here again.
