Reviewed 18 August 2013

We got very lost in Cologne, so we arrived two hours later than planned and feeling very frazzled. The staff realized this right away and were so amazing and kind. They found us a parking spot in their lot (16 Euro a night, on par with others in the area) and made the check in process very warm and friendly. You are supposed to reserve your spot in advance, which I didn't realize when I booked, so I was very grateful something was still available.

The location is fantastic - steps from the waterfront and a short walk from the main shopping areas. We were very pleased about that.

Our room was great - clean and very pretty! The bed was quite comfortable and I liked that there were stylish touches, like magazines and books on the desk. The shower is in the bedroom, which was a bit unique for us, but I didn't mind it. My husband thought it was strange and would have been a problem for a longer stay, but I think it was fine.

We really liked that there was a pool. It was a great way to end our day and the water was very comfortable and the pool area very clean.

Overall, this was a wonderful hotel and we were so grateful to the staff for their warm welcome and their help during our stay. We plan to return to Cologne and I hope we're able to stay here on future visits.

Room Tip: Don't forget to book parking when you book your stay - there are more rooms than spaces, so it...

Very clean, good size room, perfect location. Only a short walk to restaurants/bars/train station and right next to the Rhine which you can follow all the way up to the cathedral. I'd definitely stay here again. We stayed over New Year (if you like fireworks, you MUST go to Cologne at New Year) so the area was still quite festive - lights, ice rink, outdoor eateries etc.

The hotel is located very close to the main shopping street in Cologne, nearby Heumarkt and the riverside where you can find plenty of restaurants. Our room was very bright, big, comfortable and clean. W could leave our car in the underground parking. The breakfasts were amazing, huge variety of very delicious food. Nice swimming pool. There was no problem with leaving our luggage for couple of hours after the check-out. The stuff (reception and restaurant) speak very good English.

Spent several days here, used it as a perfect place to head to other locations (train station is literally the other side of Koln cathedral). The location provided a nice walk back from the city center along the river after a full day of beating the pavement. The swimming pool proved to be just the thing for our sore feet and bodies.

Room Tip: Look for a room that doesn't face the street, however, the street is pretty quiet.

Spent one Saturday night at the Lyskirchen whilst on a weekend break in Cologne. Very impressed all round; the room was a good size, clean and bright. The breakfast was good with a lot of choice and the location is fantastic, right next to the Rhine and a short walf from the Cathederal, shops and bars/restaurants.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the garage parking is really useful in this part of the city.
Would deffinately recommend.

Very conveniently situated close to river and chocolate museum, about 15 - 20 minute walk to the cathedral. Room was well presented and quiet enough, breakfast buffet OK, reception staff fine. My biggest issue, as always, is why I have to pay for Wi-Fi - particularly a ridiculous time-measured charge. But this is a good value for money hotel and would be a fine base for seeing around the city.

First trip to Cologne and we booked the hotel at the last minute for a weekend break:it proved to be an excellent choice. It's an easy walk to the centre - Cathedral, station, etc - and close to the Rhine. Swimming pool was a reasonable size and I had a good early morning swim. Rooms are modern and well equipped and, as other people have said, no problem at all with noise either from outside or inside. Breakfast was delicious but very expensive - we tried it once and then ate elsewhere. Generally staff were helpful, apart from one man on reception when we checked out early on Monday morning. We'd definitely return to the hotel and to Cologne - a great trip.
