Excellent location, breakfast, hotel lobby cleanliness and staff, comfort of room etc even the wifi worked smoothly! The only thing which was a let down was the repeated unsatisfactory job of replacing towels and amenities in the bathroom by the cleaning staff. After the second reoccurring day i called to raise the issue and was promised a bottle of water...

The location of the hotel was very good, the ambience and the renovated room and business rooms were nice. The service was good and we enjoyed the view from the room. The wifi was strong. We would recommend this hotel for business as well as leisure.

In general we enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean, but too cold and we couldn't get the thermostat higher than 18*C. The service at the bar was overwhelmed, as the beer took way too long (for a Kölsch) and then was served poorly and the Hugo we ordered tasted like water. We were there for New Years and the...

We came to Cologne for the Christmas Markets and this was an excellent modern hotel. It was clean, close to the first market and an easy walk to the center of town. We asked for a late check out and nothing was a problem.

So impressed with this hotel. The rooms were huge, newly redecorated, quiet and comfortable. Everything was new and spotless. The bathroom was large with tonnes of space to put your stuff. I loved the walk in shower, stayed in there too long. Lots of plugs for your phone and laptop. Comfy bed, down duvet and pillows. Very nice staff. Wanted...

The hotel is very, very well located. Best selection of eateries and bars in walking distance. Although the streets are busy, the rooms are quiet. Clean, spacious, well-equipped, good design and furniture. Staff is attentive and the lobby has the look&feel of a 5 star hotel. Breakfast is nice, but if you stay for a couple of days you might...

I highly recommend this hotel. The people working in the hotel are engaging and genuine and love what they're doing. This hotel deserves a five star rating. All I'm waiting is for the fitness center to open.
