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.
Location, breakfast, free parking
No tea/coffee facilities in room
Good location - comfortable room and excellent buffet breakfast.
Wi-Fi quality poor but cannot complain as free!
Very helpful staff, no hassles and overfriendliness. A very simple warm room with all necessary requirements and most important - very quiet room...
Vibrations when other people shut their doors hard.
Proximity to railway station, quiet situation, Comfortable bed and room.
High step into shower
location breakfast was amazing bed was comfy room spacious for 1 person
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.
Location Service Balcony
Very accessible from station. Breakfast buffet was excellent, plentiful and a wide choice, and well presented. Staff were helpful and accommodating. Lovely flower displays. Close to Dom
Great location nearby Cathedral and trains.ALso near wonderful museum of antiquities,Roman included.Night staff really helpful and kind.
Nothing to report
The breakfast was AMAZING! The staff were friendly and multi-lingual.
The room got very hot, a fan might have been useful. The price seemed quite expensive but compared to the rest of Cologne it was fair.
Great location, price and breakfast. If u dont mind sharing a bathroom with strangers this is a very good deal.
Location near but not close to station, 5 minutes away, a quite street, breakfast display and range, friendliness of owner.
First of all, the owners and staff of the hotel were totally welcoming and smiling, second of all the location is just about 5 minutes away from the main station... Last of all, breakfast was nice and rich of flavours... Thanks a lot
After a bit of trouble finding the hotel (my own fault for being terrible with directions!) I was very happy to arrive and be informed in perfect that my room had been upgraded free of charge because the room type I'd booked had been all filled. The room was very clean and comfortable, with a lovely little bathroom. I was quite near receptions so it wasn't too quiet, but you expect that sort of thing so I'd brought earplugs which wasn't a problem. I was also pleased that there was free wifi (I'd spent the previous week at a much more expensive hotel in bonn which charged 5euros for 2 hours of wifi, ridiculous!). The staff were friendly and helpful, I'd stay again!
