The location is perfect for those who want to get away for a weekend in the city. The Dom is at five minutes walking distance, which brings to directly to the heart of the city. The people were nice and friendly and breakfast was exuberant.
Parking was a bit difficult. They offer you a free of charge parking place (if you reserve on time) and all of this was well taken care of. But because you park in some kind of 'back yard', it is not great if you want to explore the outer parts of the city of the region, because it's not that easy to get in and out often. But nonetheless, everything was well taken care of and the owner helped us drive out of the parking area safely, which was so nice of him.
Good location - quiet street, but very close to Dom and train station. Parking was included in price (limited availability, reservation needed). Breakfast buffet also included in price and had a good selection of fruit, cold cuts, cheese, yogurt, etc.
No wifi in rooms, bathroom very small, only one outlet in room.

Not many private parking spaces but lots of parking possibilities all around
The hotel was very near to the train station and also the other attractions especially the gothic dom. Room and it's decorations were nice and sweet. Bathrooms are very clean although it's shared, which is very pleasant . Breakfast was extremely good, there was so many choices!! The best breakfast a hotel has offered while I'm traveling in Europe for one month plus! Definitely worth it!!
Bed is a little too soft for me maybe
I Have to say a very big thank you to all the great people who own the hotel, and to the great staff, a big IRISH THANK YOU. It was a few mins from the main station, very easy to find the beautiful attraction the city has to offer, and of course the Cathedral it is beautiful. MICHAEL
location, room condition, price, service, wifi, and breakfast! i got everything i needed at this price! was really good.
I had a single (one twin size bed) with a shower and small sink (shared toilet in the hallway). The room and hotel are impeccably clean. The location is perfect, next to the train station (3 blocks and 5 minute walk), old town (past the train station), and one block from the river walkway. There is a top-notch continental breakfast (rolls, jams, bread, cereals, fresh fruit, cheeses, meats, yogurt, juice (not fresh), coffee, and tea). Do not expect a hot breakfast though, which was fine with me. You get a soft boiled egg too. The front desk and housekeeping staff are so friendly and welcoming, willing to answer tourist questions or hold a conversation. Front desk staff all have good English. I have no complaints for the value. It is a perfect hotel for an unbelievably reasonable price if you are a solo traveler looking for a bed to sleep on while visiting Koln for sightseeing. There is a hair dryer in the room, a closet, small desk/chair, and a small flat screen TV with many german channels, 1 french channel, 1 italian channel, and 2 english channels (CNN and BBC). Maybe more, but that is what I noticed. S13 tram takes you straight to Koln airport from train station in 15 minutes. Leaves at least twice hourly for 2.80 euros. Highly recommend. (Don't expect the Marriott though, which is one block away and 3-4x the price).
The door for the room uses a traditional key mechanism and requires turning the key to turn the latch. You cannot turn the knob. Therefore, when you pull the door shut, you have to pull it hard to engage the latch. This makes a loud bang, which can be heard at night if a neighbor comes/goes, e.g. toilet. Some thoughtful neighbors will use the key to rotate the latch before pulling the door shut. The beds are fine, but the mattresses are bit on the hard side. Some shampoo is provided (in packet), buy you may want to bring your own. There is no elevator, so you will need to carry your suitcase up some stairs (mine was up 3 flights of stairs). None of this was a big deal for me though, but you should know this before booking.
This hotel is just perfect for a single traveller on a budget using public transport! This place even beats more expensive hotels I've stayed at in Cologne.
The breakfast was excellent-nicely presented
This hotel was very centrally located, approximately 5 minutes walk to the Dom and main shopping area. It was about 2 minutes walk to the main train station. The street was very quiet and the room was clean.
Parking was not ideal as you could not park in front of the hotel. It was an 8 minute walk to the closest decent parking area, which cost 4 euro per day. The breakfast was mediocre, the bread was stale or too sugary.
Great location, very good breakfast, easy and convenient to access to most attractions in the city. Wifi works well.

my room was next to the bathroom, and so was my head so woke up every time someone needed the loo in the night.
Near railway station, quiet street, clean and tidy, good breakfast. Very pleasant two night stay.
centre of Cologne clean and comfortable nice staff quiet
Friendly & helpful staff. Clean room and modern ensuite bathroom. Good quality breakfast with compulsory boiled eggs! Central location, 3 minutes from station, 5 minutes from Catherdral.
Needed to lock bikes outside in the backyard so they were exposed to the weather. However it was a secluded area so seemed pretty secure.
The location of the hotel near the train station made it easy to get to. The street was quiet at night so we were able to have an excellent sleep after a long day's travel. A very clean and comfortable room. The bathroom was small but good. Breakfast was excellent. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful.
No complaints at all.
Good location great breakfast
Nothing to complain about
Staff, cleaning and breakfast
There is no parking place for everyone
We were en route to Paris and needed a one-night stay close to the Railway Station. This hotel fitted the bill perfectly - within walking distance (even with luggage) and close to good places to eat that weren't full of drunk tourists. The breakfast was magnificent.
No tea-making facility. I do like to have a cup of tea at the end of a day's travel.
