We very much enjoyed staying here over our Christmas break. Staff are friendly and helpful. Check in and Check out was speedy. The room was clean, warm, spacious and with large windows for natural light. The location is very good, it is about 15min. walk from the main train station. Almost everything else you would want to see in the...

I have to say I booked this hotel upon seeing the convenient location and reading the great reviews here but was utterly disappointed. The staff (the young man who apparently runs the hotel and does pretty much everything) was chatty and had a smile on his face which I thought was nice at first but in retrospect I think it...

I stayed here with my girlfriend when we visited the Christmas Markets. It is a 20 minute stroll from the station, and is located seconds away from the Angel's Christmas Market - the nicest of all the markets we thought. The staff were most welcoming. Our room was very clean and spacious. We booked a double but has two singles...

Stayed here with teenage daughter and the location was excellent, about 2 minutes walk to the Neumarkt underground so lots of shops and sights nearby. Could walk to river in less than 15 minutes, less to the Rudolfplatz and Friezenplatz (where there are the best shops, more upmarket and lots of bars and restaurants). Room was warm, beds really comfortable....

This was our second visit to Altera Pars, which might be enough recommendation in itself. Our room was again warm (we were there for the New Year!), well-decorated, clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and efficient. Location is on a quiet side-street but only 100m from Neumarkt which hosts a number of fairs and markets and has a good...

Altera Pars is basic clean hotel near downtown Koln. The cathedral is about 10-15 min walk from the hotel, and large Koln shopping area is right around the corner. Rooms are clean, and service is very friendly, but do not expect any extras here.

I stayed for three nights in a single room in this tiny hotel, which belongs to an Italian restaurant. The hotel itself is located in central Cologne, only 3 minutes away from the shopping area in the old town and 2 minutes from the closest metro station. I had to attend an exhibition at the Cologne Trade Fair, which can...

This hotel just off the Neumarkt in Cologne is a clean, well appointed three star hotel that serves a good breakfast. I had a double room (41) over four nights for single occupancy including breakfast at 65 euro per night. The room was simply but comfortably furnished. The bed was comfortable and the linens were of good quality. The bathroom...
