We stayed here due to all the accolades in Trip advisor, and they were spot on. The rooms were clean, the facilities new and modern (we had both a shower and a tub). The breakfasts were great as was the location. There were many added pluses such as in-room safes and refrigerators, a lobby beer/wine/soda honor mini bar, the little notes on what's happening in town; these were all great. But nobody mentioned having to climb three flights of stairs every time (rooms 7 and 8).

Room Tip: Go for rooms 1, 2 or 3. These are only one flight of stairs.

good service, except the young chick who told us to hurry up and finish breakfast, then changed her mind when another couple showed up. Not good.

Excellent location, healthy, unique breakfast.

Room got a little warm in May, A/C works fine. Windows open invites mosquitoes. No elevator.

2 thumbs up from us. Say hi to York, he's great.

Everything about this hotel was perfect; located within short walking distance of the Dom, train station, shops, bars, restaurants and Rhine.
Lovely clean modern rooms and bathrooms, friendly and attentive management and staff and of course a magnificent healthy breakfast to help kick-start your day around this wonderful city. Thank you to all the Stern am Rathaus team!

This was a little gem of a hotel. Centrally located within a minute of the iconic Rathaus. We had a room on 2 floors, all very modern and spotless. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent with locally sourced produce. No lift so not suitable for those who don't want to climb stairs.

Room Tip: We had room 7 which was in the eaves with a lounge upstairs. Up though 3 flights of stairs

Have returned for the second time as it is so comfortable and central as well as quiet with the most caring friendly staff. The rooms are comfortable and stylish, cleaned and maintained to very high standards. The breakfast is super with homemade breads and jams offered, all very healthy and organic. Stern am Rathaus is so close to all the main attractions, like a secret hideaway. Can,t wait to return.......soon.

A fantastic small hotel tucked away in a central location - I can't think how we could have found a better place to stay for a short break to Cologne.
A few days before our trip the hotel emailed over very detailed directions as to how to find the hotel. This was a sign of things to come - the attention to detail and overall service was fantastic. The room was spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds, and a modern bathroom. Despite being right in the centre of town it was extremely peaceful, except maybe for some church bells on Sunday morning.
The complimentary breakfast was great - loads of choice, everything freshly prepared with delicious coffee. There was even a daily news sheet with a weather forecast and information about what was on in town that day.
The staff were friendly and helpful and clearly took pride in the service they were providing. I really can't fault anything, and would return to Cologne just to stay there again!

This hotel is ideally located to explore the centre of cologne. It is literally 5 minutes walk to the main areas. The rooms are well appointed, maybe a touch small and the bathrooms are a good size and modern. We stayed on the 3rd floor - there is no lift in the hotel. Breakfast was above average. Staff were helpful when required although abit impersonal and reserved which is ok. Reception is not physically present 24 hours a day but they are available after 6pm by phone. Overall a very good hotel and would recommend.

Room Tip: The rooms on the third floor are more quiet but there is no lift.
