This privately-run, 3-star hotel is in the heart of Cologne, just over 1 mile from Cologne Cathedral and a 10-minute walk from Friesenstraße with its lively pubs and clubs.
Score from 379 reviews Very good
If you only plan to sleep in the room and not spend time there, then it is fine. The beds were comfortable enough, everything was clean. I realize people want 5 stars, but I think that 4 stars for an economy hotel is much more accurate - it serves the purpose
not a place i want to spend my day, but good for sleeping.
Good size bed in single room. Almost double.
Lift not working. Slight mark on the bedding
Location very good, price very good. Clean and decent shower and beds.
No sides tables, window sills for things. Also not many plug points in 5 bed room.
Near clubs & bars, good for nightlife.
Great location, helpful, friendly staff. The hotel was clean and the beds were comfortable
Tiny kitchen, bar area is sadly neglected. Whilst our room was clean it was cramped and had the tiniest lockers to store things in. Breakfast could have been so much better for 5.90 euros- the choice is very limited. Just bread rolls, ham and cheese, cornflakes and muesli. No pastries or croissants or eggs.
The staff in the receptionist is nice, kind and excellent.
The room is very small. There's neither any chair nor table.
Good location Great staff
Needs more seating in the public area
The Hotel was situated very well and close to the city centre, without being too close to all of the noise and business of the city. The centre was ony 10 minutes to walk. The staff were super friendly and helped us with all sorts of things including booking taxis, extras, hotspots etc.... The price was great and the rooms were imple and clean, just what you need when you are spending most of the time out of the hotel anyway. I felt safe there and not vulnerable to anything which is great when you are in such a large city. Around the corner from us there is a lovely cafe and a place to grab fresh sandwiches... The opposite way were streets full of restaurants and bars, typically for students but also for those on holiday too :) I will definitely be staying here again it was fantastic :)
One night we had some noise issues with people outside. However it was bearable as you do have to expect others are on holiday enjoying themselves too.
The location is good, close to restaurants and the public transport. The reception girl was also friendly and helpful! I would only recomment to students who needs shower and Internet. It is cheap indeed but our family won't choose this hotel anymore.
The lift is poor and small. The toilet was broken.Our room missed one sheet. The shower was old and dirty. We even found some plastic coins in bed which might belongs to the previous guests.
The staff at the reception was nice and the location is good
The hotel was dirty, especially the room and the hallway. Our room hasn't been cleaned even though we arrived at 9pm. The cleaner cleaned the floor with a bath towel and her feet. And no mattress protection was used. Dust on the shelves and desk. The furniture has seen better days. The pictures on the website don't reflect how the hotel rooms are!!!!
Awesome staff, great facilities.
Firstly I was overcharged. Then when I entered the room (after waiting 4 hours) the room was a mess. I was in a Private room in between 2 big rooms full of kids underage drinking. Walls are thin
Location and friendly staff.
The breakfast should have been included in the price.
Around half an hour walk from the Dom. Nice location. There is a Lidl less than 5 mins walk from the hotel. I lived in 6th floor and wifi signal was damn good considering this is quite an old building and thick walls.
None. With this price, I can't expect more. Lift is quite old but in working condition. You might hear the noise of lift at night if live in the 6th floor.
staff is helpful
the room is so small, it is so hot in the room! i cant connect to wifi at all, and the staff even told me that they just improved their wifi?!?! its quite far from the station
location, price & staffs
saturday 6/7- 7/7 lift out of order so going up to 4th and 5th floor we have to climb up the stairs.. also no WIFI available that days.
Convenience to public transportation to commute into the city.
Hard bed. There weren't pillows inside the pillow cases. Rooms were hot. Bathroom was nasty. Internet did not work.
Staff were very helpful, and there was a lift, beds were comfortable.
clean comfortable beds
had to keep putting in code for wifi
Well, as compared to Meininger in Frankfurt and Hamburg this one is really poor. Very small room, tiny bathroom, poor pillows. We had to sleep on separate beds, although it was obvious we're a couple travelling together. If I am to visit Cologne again I won't stay in Meininger. But I LOVE Meininger in Frankfurt and Hamburg. I think, you guys should pay attention to your Cologne hostel. It needs an overhaul.
The staff is very nice to answer any question. There is a pub street and several supermarkets nearby.
not so central, it takes about 10 to 15 min. tram to central.
Friendly staff, clean, excellent location.
The walls were paper thin and we were awoken by the return at 4.30am of a group of guys who we could still hear after they had entered the room next door...
Very friendly staff, good location and excellent value for money
WIFI was slow, other than that no real complaints!
Good hostel, clean room and helpful staff.
Some problem with access to WI-FI in the room on 5-th floor(
From main train station take tram to zulpicher platz station,the hotel is 5 minute walk from there, received warm welcome, family friendly, comfortable, safe and secure, basic facilities,vending machine for drinks etc, in morning free lemon tea and good paid breakfast, mc donald and supermarket within easy reach, overall good hotel
