This hotel was honestly both good and bad. Before I get into the hotel description, I just want to make a few suggestions. First off, pack light! Or, if you are a couple, try to share a bag. Secondly, bring your own pillow. Thirdly, invest in earplugs. And last, but not least, don't bring back any left overs from eating out.
To begin, this hotel is incredibly centrally located and within walking distance of everything! The Dom, the bridge with Love Locks, and mega tons of shopping!
There is no hotel parking lot, but there was a parking garage down around the corner and it really wasn't all that bad on price!
Almost all of the staff was fluent in multiple languages, including English!! (The only ones who did not speak English were the cleaning staff, who were a little rude when we didn't speak German back to them, but we let it roll of our shoulder.)
Free Wi-Fi baby! Yay! It is super easy to log onto their Wifi, but it is heavily shared by the entire hotel between 7pm-10pm. The large consumption of wifi by the entire hotel slows it down big time, but it was still usable!! The T.V. had two channels in English, both of which were news channels. I will say though, Cloud Atlas in German is interestingly confusing!
The rooms were cleaned very well and the cleaning staff left us bags of gummy bears instead of the usual chocolates, as well as a complimentary bottle of water, which was actually kind of cool! The only thing not cleaned was the water container used to boil water, but it honestly wasn't a big deal. The greeter's desk staff was more than happy to find me a clean one!
The rooms are a little small. This is where I suggest sharing a bag or packing light. Space is limited; I tripped trying to get over my bag so many times!
Our bed was a little stiff, but the pillows were... I don't even know if they can be classified as pillows... They sucked. Bring your own!!!
The room didn't have a Microwave or a refrigerator, so the option to bring back food from anywhere was out of the question. We did bring from home cups of instant oatmeal, which we cooked by pouring into it the hot water from the water boiling container!
Their website says the rooms are sound proof. I think there should be some clarification on this. You certainly will not hear the people in the rooms above you or beside you. You will, on the other hand, hear every honk, beep, vroom, and squeak from the vehicles outside as well as every word spoken on the loud speaker and every train to pass through the railway station. Earplugs are amazing!
I would totally suggest this hotel for people going to Cologne for a day or two. We were booked for three nights, and only stayed for two. Three nights was just too long to be squeezed into the small room, even if it was just for sleeping and resting.
