“Stay away!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Stayed in this hotel in Sept’13. What a disaster! The hotel has 3 stars rating, in fact it should not be rated at all. Booked 5 months ahead. Unprofessional and unfriendly reception. Room on the 4th floor very small, uncomfortable, with 2 separate small single beds of totally poor quality. The booking mentioned “Bright room”, in fact it was ugly! This establishment should be removed from any booking websites. We can and will not recommend this “hotel” to any travellers. Stay away!

Room Tip: Stay away!

When i read the reviews here, i told myself i would never sleep in a dump like that. But as it was just for one night (we had a plane to catch very early in the morning) i decided to give it a try. And it was quite okay, regarding the 53,90 € we paid. Room was small but clean, no smells, clean sheets, clean bathroom and surprisingly no noise from the street (room was on 4th floor, #144). I would not stay there for a week or so, but for one or two nights, it was really OK. Dined at the Great Wall restaurant nearby and it was very good and tasty. No breakfast taken at the hotel.

The Hotel is just a Stone Throw Away from the Klon Cathedral ( DOM ) and from Klon Central Station (which is well connected to most of the Europe), Old Town, River etc . Well The reception and Lobby area looks decent but the corridors are narrow, the stair case is steep, the room was very small. The staff was friendly, breakfast is yum however there are dozen of eateries around the Hotel, i think it is not necessary to get the B&B. Absolutely affordable if compared with the Hotels around ( Keeping in mind the gr8 location. )

This hotel was big disappointment because our beds were full of bed bugs. They hopped in our beds and they were big like bees. We have never before seen something like that.
How can it be possible?
In the reception the man didn´t want to believe that, but when he came and saw them himself he let us instantly to change the room to the other side of the hotel.

Decent rooms (first floor), spacious enough although fairly simple. The bathrooms too are spacious and a bit on the spartan side of things (no shower curtain for example!).

On the plus side there are first of all the location (super central - 2 min walk from the cathedral and the train station); secondly, rooms and bathrooms are VERY clean (Hurray!).

So far good value for money..

..However! 2 things let this place down: the heat in the rooms is almost unbearable (consider that we were there in July though..) ..And the little electric fan or opening the window won't help much.
Also, very noticeable, the lack (or very little of it) of customer service at the reception. Not sure whether they are mistreated as employees, paid too little or overloaded with work (they didn't seem too busy to me) but the receptionists look like they are all constantly attending a funeral, giving minimal information and almost monosyllabic answers... God help us!

This is an old hotel located right next to the magnificent cologne cathedral. The location is awesome! Service is ok, and the price is very good. There is breakfast available for a fee, but I would recommend enjoying one of the many coffee houses nearby. The bedroom is very small but is well kept and has all the essentials. It is very clean and well maintained also. I considered the Internet fees quite higher than expected. Check-in and checkout is easy and fast. The people from the reception desk are very attentive.

Conclusion: Due to the small size I would recommend it only for short low-cost stays, especially alone or a couple at max. But if you do not care about fancy hotels and want only a place to sleep with the essentials to enjoy Cologne, this is a good option to be considered.

Room Tip: No special considerations here. I stayed in a room in the back on the hotel, and it was very quiet a...
