A very nice and cozy hotel. The location was perfect, service was super and breakfast fine. All important tourist attraction and the river were near so was the shopping area. And lots of restaurants, too.

Small, intimate 8-room hotel in an excellent location. Wonderful breakfast, great service, clean, comfortable rooms. The owners have gone out of their way to make guests welcome & 'connected', with special touches like a patron for each room making a special connection to Koln & its history. The breakfast buffet was plentiful, yet there is also an excellent cooked breakfast...

There is nothing to say but excellent. Perfect in every way. But a bigger TV would have been nice and a door too the toilet so you had more privacy but all in all I loved this place. I can only recommend it to others.

Walking distance to many sites and close to the transit centres.Excellent continental breakfast with some hot choices. Our hosts were very...

Michael & Manfred took a real interest in our visit to Koln and made excellent recommendations for restaurants and galleries. In particular, Michael made a special effort to tell us about a symphony concert that will be a highlight of our trip. The hotel itself has an excellent location, and they provide brilliant directions from the train station. The rooms...

Manfred & Michael were really good hosts- considerate and flexible. Their breakfast was quite special. Good use of space in brilliant location for exploring central Cologne. Only small thing was would have liked a bit more shower power.

Not only the hotel has an excellent location, service is wonderful and rooms are very inviting. The hotel is within a short walking distance of all touristic points. Service is personalized. The rooms are modernly decorated in a very tasty way. The only downside is the absence of an elevator.

Booked after reviewing hotels in Köln for 3 nights on business. Having arrived after an overseas flight from Canada plus train from Frankfurt I was quite tired. I arrived prompt at 11am and Manfred greeted me by name before introducing myself! I found my room with a nice view of the street. Fell asleep immediately in a comfortable bed. Room...

Nicely decorated room with top class furnishing, warm and friendly service, ample and quality breakfast. This was a home outside home which offered much more than just accomodation. Thanks a lot to Michael who was ever patient in answering our questions and requests... It really made our stay memorable!
