Hotel has everything and was so clean and well looked after. Excellent location and the staff were so helpful and friendly. Would really recommend this hotel. Main rail station was a 5 minute walk and underdround metro less than a minute. No noise problems at all.

This hotel was a perfect location for exploring the city. Owner could not have been kinder and more friendly. It was our wedding anniversary and he gave us bubbles with our breakfast! Rooms very clean and modern if a bit on the small side.

Centrally located. Close to Cologne train station, museums, cathedral, the water, and many restaurants. The staff was incredibly accommodating and offered amazing recommendations for museums, tourist attractions, and restaurants. Delicious breakfast and clean, modern, and quiet rooms.

We very much enjoyed staying at the Stern am Rathaus. Staff were very helpful, attentive and friendly. The tea and coffee making facilities in the room were very much appreciated (something which is rarely found outside the UK). Rooms nicely appointed and beds were very comfortable. Excellent breakfast. Perhaps a little on the expensive side (especially out of season in...
