The small hotel is centrally located in Cologne's old town and has very clean and comfortable rooms. Unfortunately mine was a bit smelly and leaving the window open for a while didn't really help. The shower had a neat but impractical design, as you had to be careful to not get everything wet while taking a shower. There is no elevator, but having only hand luggage, that was no problem.
Breakfast was actually quite nice and the egg I was offered was brought perfectly hot and tasty to my table. Interestingly, after asking if they had latte macchiato, the girl at the bar said yes, however served me a regular cup of coffee with cream on the side. Then I discovered that my neighbours had some Earl Grey in a pot. Hence I asked for some Earl Grey and surprisingly she served me Darjeeling. Might not have been her day. Well at least the egg was good, she was generally helpful and had a cheerful smile. All in all, for the price and location offered the hotel is a good deal. Due to the little imperfections I can't rate it with five points, but it's well worth four.
