I'd say stay in Bonn. It's my understanding that Cologne Bonn airport is kind of equidistant to the two. I've never been to Bonn so I'm not qualified to compare it to Cologne but for convenience sake Bonn would seem to be the best solution.

If you only want to go to the festival once and see a bit of Bonn for a day, you can easily stay in Cologne. Ou can take the tram line 18 between Cologne and Bonn (30 or 45 min), it all depends where you want to spend most of the time. Perosnally there is more to see in Cologne, but Bonn has some interesting places, like the Museum of German History. So staying in Cologne might be a slight better options.

Try the Bonn forum? I guess people over there would have more of an idea. Beer festival has me interested.

Kameha Grand in Bonn is a great Hotel.

But honestly, I would (as others said already) go back t Cologne by train , Bonn is a very boring city ...

I would advise you to stay in Cologne too - as well as tram line 18 to Bonn you can also get the regional trains which take less than half hour and are very frequent
