    If I have to say, I guess the room may be a little smaller than my expectation.

    Location is the reason why I booked the Hotel. General speaking, food is good and the serve is impressed.

    The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The internet service was good and the breakfast was nice. The hotel is located in front of a bus and tram stop so it is easy to get around. The rooms have high ceilings, have wooden furniture and are appropriate for a business stay.

    The RE8 train to the airport was cancelled temporarily due to construction. This was not clearly posted at th station, making transit marginally less convenient.

    The hotel was everything we wanted, clean, comfortable, convenient and complete with a great breakfast. Easy walk to, and most importantly from old city (post wine fest). Plenty of good food within a few blocks walk. Old school German hotel with friendly hosts.

    Its an old building and the lift was built in the 1960s. Its immediately next to train station which has its good and bad sides depending on what you are looking for.

    Very friendly staff and table service for breakfast was very efficient. Nice clean hotel next to train station. Needed an extra night near Bonn and this hotel did nicely. Also very nice restaurants just around the corner,

    Absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended. Staff is more than friendly, cleanliess is great. We loved the breakfast as well. If you have a business, meeting or anything else in Cologne, it is a great choice as the hotel is situated next to the train station with direct line to Cologne. Or it takes 20-25 minutes to take the way with car. Gorgeous restaurants nearby. If we have to go to Cologne or Bonn in the future, we won't spend time to search another hotel.
