Traveling through Europe stopping one or two nights in a city, this hotel was a fantastic find. It was comfortable, clean, staff very friendly, great location. It had little extras that made you feel at home. Great value. Highly recommend.

Can you smoke on the balcony ????
There are several Christmas markets in Cologne. There is one right next to the dome so that is not even a 5 min walk. The underground is 30 secs away so it is easy to get around and to get to every CM you want to!

Do you have secure parking?
No they don't, they don't have reception, and they do t have shame. They left us in the street because the box in reception did not work ( after laughing at us on he phone) ... but they did it on the phone... were not man enough to go there and tell me face to face. Worst experience ever. The hotel sucks... actually is not a hotel.
