Great little hotel ... very personal. Came to Cologne for the December Christmas markets - the hotel was ideally placed for this and extremely close to the train station and cathedral. Breakfast was adequate and the hotel was very clean. Would stay again :)

익히 들어 알고 있었지만 방은 작았어요! 하지만 있을 건 다 있고 조식도 참 맛있었어요^^ 독일 가정집에 묵다 가는 느낌!! 장기로는 모르겠지만 단기 여행자들은 하루나 이틀쯤 추천드려요^^ It was the first hotel during my travel to Europe. The room was small but enough for 2 women. Also breakfast was really good :)

Visited Cologne for 2 nights and this was a great place to stay, 5 minute walk from the station and so convenient for everything, The room was quiet, the shower always hot and powerful, the breakfast good and the staff always friendly and helpful. Ideal for solo/couples visiting for a few days

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to Cologne railway station as we were travelling by train. We were not disappointed. It was only 5 minutes walk from the station but in a quiet street. This meant we were close to the city centre with an underground station only 2-3 minutes walk away. The room was a little small... More

Wonderful staff. Room is very clean and cozy. The room is just a little bit small but it has everything you need. A welcome cake is super yummy and breakfast is awesome. Bed is comfortable. I had a wonderful stay here. Highly recommend. 員工超級友善的飯店,雖然有一點點小但所需要的東西什麼都有,有吹風機但沒有熱水壺,裝潢走精緻路線而且非常乾淨,早餐更是棒呆了,超級好吃,非常推薦

This hotel is small and very close to the station. No need for a taxi. Service was great, as was the breakfast. Rooms and bathrooms well sized. Well worth all the favourable reviews it has received. Thannks too to the Seat61 website for its recommendation, along with so much brilliant advice on train travel in Europe.

In a quiet street just five minutes on foot from the main station is the Hotel Domstern, with its unassuming exterior. Inside, it is all charm, with a very cozy lobby and exquisitely decorated rooms.

The standards at Hotel Domstern maintain their high level and with more room refurbishments planned this friendly,clean & centrally positioned small & intimate hotel will only keep delivering. As others have mentioned the breakfasts are amazing. Talking of food do check out the Tea Box Thai restaurant 5 minutes walk as you turn right from Domstern.
