Great little hotel near to the train station. There are bars and takeaways nearby and very accessible. Decent breakfast included in the price and the rooms very clean and modern. The Haribo on the pillars was a nice touch! I left the 'do not disturb' sign on the door when I went out and on my return a bag of... More

We stayed for two nights in October, travelling from England to watch football. We flew into Dusseldorf and got the train down to Cologne, so the location of the hotel was perfect for us just behind the station. It was also a short walk into the City center to the main attractions & bars, which was handy. We traveled as... More

I really cannot understand any positive comment about this poor hotel whose the only good thing is the position, so near the train station. Maybe the convenient price could also be of interest. However it offers an absolutely unpleasant experience. Small single room, low quality furniture, no maintenance, no service. The breakfast is not bad. The personnel perfectly integrated with...

We have used this hotel a number of times and it retains its good standard. It is very convenient for arrivals by train, being just a 5 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof and 10 minutes walk from the start of the old city. They obviously keep records of previous guest stays because on arrival this time we were greeted with... More

This accommodation is a short walk from the train station and Cathedral. The Hotel is clean and modern, breakfast was presented in an elegant setting with both hot and cold options. The manager was very friendly upon arrival and allowed us to leave our bags at the Hotel prior to our rooms being available. Soft drinks and snacks were a... More

We stayed two nights and this was a very useful hotel for getting around easy bu walking/underground/bus. Perfect location for walking into Cathedral area.

This was my first visit to Cologne for the annual Gamescom show. The hotel was easily found and conveniently located. The hotel was pricey, likely because of limited capacity city wide with the Gamescom event being held.
