You can walk everywhere from here. There is also S/Ubahn only about 5 min walk from here and main train station is only about 10 min walk. Service: Very good, Barbara went... More

This is an inexpensive hotel in the center of Cologne's shopping district. It was clean. Our room was good-sized and looked out over the backs of other buildings. There is hardly any traffic on the street so even the front rooms must be quiet. There are a few parking spots available. The hotel is not air-conditioned and it was well... More

Sonata Hotel is not a pretty or cosy hotel, but for a visit to a city it's perfect. The location couldn't be better. The shops, Dom and Heumarkt are all so close to the hotel. The room was fine. Most important: very clean and spacious. Breakfast was included and served between 7 and 10 am and is more than you... More

If you are looking for a great location, that's the place to be, however the hotel is regular. If you are a non smoker, make sure to get a room on a non smoker floor. We did not and I suffered the whole nigh with the bad smell of cigarets in my bedroom. Old towels in the bathroom and simple... More

I stayed in this hotel in March for 2 nights. The hotel is conveniently located near the main market yet is very peaceful. It is a short walk of about 7-10 minutes from the main train station and the famous Cathedral. The rooms are very nice , comfortable bed, a mini sofa and table was also provided in the room....

The Hotel is located in a small quiet street near the main Shopping Avenue of Cologne and very close a few minutes walk to the known Sightseeing places like Dom Old City aso. Beds in single room are not very large. Brakfast was very good and all the staff very friendly and helpful. No free Wlan or internet

I cannot fault anything about this hotel. Even though we were there in one of the busiest weekends in December, we could check in at 11 am already. The room was quite big and quiet. Breakfast is very decent and even though it was very busy, the lady worked very hard to accomodate us. Location is excellent. In the middle... More

I was here for business. The hotel is nothing special but just ok and affordable. Breakfast is simple but good and the staff helpful. Only downside I think is that there is no free internet. For a next stay I do think I would think about going here again.
