Perfect location in the Old Cologne on a small street so no street noise. It is walking distance (may be 20 minutes) from the train station and steps to the Dom. As the owners mention on their website, this is a 3 stars hotel so don't expect the amenities of a 5 star hotel, but just fills perfectly its role with nice rooms, helpful staff, good breakfast with homemade breads and local products (they even make cappuccinos for you without additional fee), free wifi (that actually works fine) and plug adaptors, all for a very reasonable price. I had lunch at the cafe too and it was pretty good. Of course there is some minor issues such as some noise from the other rooms or stair case, open shower area so water splashes everywhere in the bathroom, but you can have in any hotel including 5 stars! I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Cologne, except may be for families with young children.
