Because of the advertising in their website of a different hotel concept and rooms with different designs, I decided to stay at this hotel. The first expression was all I expected, lovely surroundings and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The deception came when I was

468/5000 Dear Marlies. Thanks for the rating. Nice that you took the time for it and described it in great detail. We regret that we could not find the right room for you. With the current heat you are completely right. Great, that at least on the second night you could sleep well. We think it's great that despite the criticism, you emphasize how friendly our hosts are. That makes us happy!

We flew into Cologne with loads of bags as part of a five week trip across Europe, part business part pleasure. I was worried that the hotel room which had been booked for us might have been too small for all our things but then I entered my room - the Albrecht Durer suite!! I

We are completely delighted with your detailed review of your stay with us, dear AgathaChristie2012. Great that we were able to surprise and impress you. It would be great if you visit us again and then longer. Could be, however, that it will be a little short of space for the luggage :-)

a beautifull little romantic room in a "Fachwerkhaus" and a warm welcome by the staff. Superb rain-shower , senseo-coffee and a bottle of Gerolsteiner in the room and a "glass sekt" to welcome us. A breakfast at a high level. A place for our car just in front of the hotel. We

I stayed there with my girlfriend for one night. We had a late check-in and got our roomkey through a safe as the reception was already closed. Hotel is really nice, breakfast was excellent but our room (Nr 8) was VERY small. All it could fit was one bed and that was about it.

Dear Dennis, thank you for your rating, although of course this does not suit our taste. We have to accept that you do not find the value for money in order. Our standard rooms are compact and cozy. We do not make any secret about that and we communicate it openly. Too bad, that you did not announce your displeasure on arrival. Depending on the occupancy we would have gladly offered you another room as we live from satisfied guests. Our hosts are reachable 24 hours even also if the reception is not staffed. Of course Bergisch Gladbach is no metropolis but a very popular region.We think it's great that despite their anger they stayed fair and rated cleanliness & sleeping comfort as positive. Thanks for that!

The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. We stayed here with the Mediterana spa package. Breakfast in the morning was super. I would definitely stay here again. 3 min walk to the Althoff Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg which is beautiful. Great location.
