Really good rooms, can be a little noisy at night but that's too be expected given the good location. Restaurant is very nice. Breakfast is expensive, plenty of local bakeries which are better value. Would stay again.

We stayed here and were provided a room facing the square. A lovely view and fantastic location for the price but incredibly noisy as the windows have to remain open due to the lack of AC (it was a warm day/night). I do not have a problem with not having AC as we usually try to find non-chain hotel in... More

I've stayed here twice two years apart and nothing has changed. In some ways that lets it down as it is tired. But a comfy bed, good shower and more than adequate breakfast do the job for the business traveller. Not sure I would make it my destination for a city break with my wife but would return.

I was visiting Cologne to partecipate to Photokina. I came across this hotel by chance and I managed to get a very reasonable price considering the position and the period. Rooms are very quite (although you are right in the centre 5 minutes walking from the Dome) clean, nice bathroom and perfect dimensions. The receptionists are great. Breakfast should be... More

We really enjoyed our stay at his lovely hotel. We arrived at 6 a.m. in the morning and our room was ready. The staff recognized us because of the time we arrived and they were very nice. It was satisfying that our room was ready when we arrived because we needed a sleep after a long night journey. We were... More

Firstly this is a lovely clean hotel in a good location and friendly staff. The downside is the rooms when we stayed were hot and if you opened the windows very noisy from the bars around. I asked at reception for a fan but the best they could offer was that it was the weekend and they would open the... More

The location of the hotel is ideal. From the busy Hay Market (Heumarkt) we could explore the old town on foot, take walks along the Rhine or cross a bridge to the opposite river bank. It’s also very easy to take public transport from Heumarkt. Because we stayed here over the weekend, we preferred a room at the back, where... More

Upsides: The hotel is in a great location. Loads of restaurants and bars nearby. Easy to take the tram from near hotel to convention center (Koln Messe). I believe the 1 and 9 trams take you right there in 5-10 mins but confirm with hotel. A good choice if you want to be in the center of town near shopping... More

The location is really excelent: just in the city centre. My room was large. The bathroom seems to be recently renovated and it was very good. The forniture was a bit old.
