First I would like to say I like this place ... and second a warning .... this place has no elevator / lifts. So if you are carrying heavy luggage and check in after 10 PM then be prepared to pull them by the stairs to your room. Mine was on the 2nd floor.
I spent about a week at that place.... it a nice place and you feel a touch of history. However the place is quite isolated. The rooms are good but you can sometime hear the aeroplanes as the Koln airport seems to be in the back yard. If you love golf then don,t forget to pack your cubs as they have a really nice golf course. The food in general is good along with a good collection of wines. However the breakfast did not have a single variation in all the seven days. It was the same breakfast food every day.
Form the coffee table books at the reception I found out that probably Napoleon and Henry Ford once stayed at this place. So I also now the list of who's who :) . A lady called the Black Lady also once lived there.
The place has a lot of antique looking furniture and stuff filled in.
It also has a small church inside and in one of the days that I stayed there was a marriage. It was nice.
The view from my room is also quite nice and the beds are also terrific.... the four post beds of the by-gone era.
Only a fun caution about this place ..... as it really feels old and in the night it really becomes quite then you sometimes feel it's a bit mysterious .........
