    A fantastic time in Cologne, beautiful space, location, and people. Cannot wait to return.
    • Business trip

    • Small Single Room
    • Stayed 6 nights

    The room was smaller than I expected, somewhere between a capsule hotel, and an "average" hotel in the west. Still the room was well laid out, and I had no issues enjoying myself.

    The atmosphere of being in a converted church, combined with a well laid out space, made for a comfortable experience. Located near many amenities, and one of the best Pizzerias I have ever been to.

    Not much to complain about, room could of course be more spacious or the bathroom could have a bit more privacy, but we thought it was very good value for money. The mini bar was a bit pricy, for this price we expected something like a complementary bottle of water. But again, these are just details. We loved the place!

    A truely nice place in an upcoming district of Köln. Serves a very good breakfast in the beautiful chappel. Staff is very friendly. Wifi worked great. Hopper is very close to public transport and river. There are some very good places to eat just around the corner.

    We had the unpleasant surprise of smelling cigarette smoke when we opened our window facing the courtyard, which is apparently the designated smoking area. Perhaps there's a better option for a smoking area?

    Helpful front desk staff and tasty breakfast! Also, your housekeeping staff noticed that we had separated the duvet cover from the comforter to use as sheets because we were way too warm with the heavy bedding! We appreciated them leaving us each a flat sheet to use the next day, which was way more comfortable...thanks!

    no tea or coffees facilities in room. toiletries too limited. My bed headboard was located next to a pump in the wall behind it which was very loud and although very intermittent when it started for an hour at 3 in the morning it was impossible for me to sleep. Room 305!

    So easy to use the u Bahn to get places, clean, quick safe. Located right by hotel. Lovely area nice and quiet but also plenty of shops and restaurants away from the hurly burly of the centre but close enough for easy access to sight seeing and everything else Cologne has to offer.

    Great breakfast and breakfast room

    This hotel looks great on paper and is a nice design exercise. At first sight it looks amazingly cleverly conceived. But in reality? small rooms with a 140 cm large bed for two (not announced while booking) - bathroom is a small hallway: toilet without privacy, showering = flooding the whole bathroom and dressing floor. It felt very much as a budget hotel, but with 150 euros a night it doesn't come cheap....

    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveller

    The modernistic renovation job is too gimmicky, or just plain not well thought though. Water from the shower spilled all over the floor because there was no proper shower door or curtain; There was no proper mirror over the sink, only a small magnifying mirror; and very poor lighting over the toilet. There is no airconditioning, and the windows opened to a street with noisy nightlife; I would have suffocated if it had been summer. The Wifi is atrocious, bordering on the non-existent. And the bacon at breakfast is woefully undercooked - gross!

    It's an old building renovated in a beautiful modernistic way. The breakfast is, for the most part, very good. The mattress was comfortable.

    Parking was a long way away and cost 24€. Only one plug socket in the room. No main light only lights in cabinets. Too dark. Pillows ridiculously soft. No support. No air con. Just a fan which used the only plug socket on a very hot night. Glass door to toilet offered no privacy. Shower has no door, faces the houses opposite and floods the floor. No tea and coffee in the room. Room far too minimal.
