Nice hotel situated close to the river and within walking distance of all the main sights.

The hotel is modern inside and the rooms are well furnished.

There is also a fitness centre and swimming pool available at the hotel.

The hotel was very nice we have not got a bad word to say against it in terms of the room or facilities. Upon arrival everything was done with great efficiency parking in their underground car park was a real help. The room was fine and what you would expect from this type of hotel. I would say that it is not a typical tourist hotel but seemed like they had alot of business visitors. Sadly the worst part was something that had been commented upon in other reviews and that was the breakfast offered. It was very enjoyable but for 20 euros each it was for too expensive. Our meal the previous night was cheaper and better value. I thought it puts it into perspective when you could stay an extra night for the price of two days breakfasts for a couple. We ended up going into Cologne for our breakfast which was great to see the city waking up. Combine it with a walk around the dom when there are less visitors at 8.00 am or earlier.

We took two singles and a double on 4th floor for 4 nights. The double was good size with balcony, the singles as expected smaller but fine. All had conventional en suite shower and toilet arrangements. Everything very clean and new looking. Staff fine and happy to speak English. Professional rather than fake-friendly, very happy with that personally. Surprised by some of the recent reviews, as not similar to our experience at all. Pool and small gym were very pleasant, no separate reception but lots of towels available. I did use the sauna, but it has to be turned on when requested (which is no problem though it takes 20 minutes to warm up).
No noise issues but we did find the room very hot at night despite turning heating off. Air conditioning not working but unsurprising at this time of year.
We did breakfast once it was very nicely done but a bit expensive for all of us to do. No other meals available on site but plenty of other venues nearby.
Minibars not functioning but drinks, chocolate, coffee etc available in the foyer/bar.

This is hotel is definitely not four star. Its more like a better 3 star hotel. I picked it based on tripadvisor reviews and was really disappointed. Was surprised that people haven given it a good rating. I assure you this is not of four star rating.
The lady at the reception at the time of check-in was pretty rude, though the other staff were better. We arrived at 11a.m, and she made us wait till 2pm, before check-in. Don't expect any leniency. They don't even have a luggage room; its just kept at the side of the reception. The shower and wash basin are in the room itself, only seperated by a shower curtain. The only two plus points of the hotel was that its clean and its close to the centre.

I picked this hotel based on positive Tripadvisor reviews. I don't understand what people like about this place. The rooms are very very small, dark and worn out. You can hear every little noise from neighbor rooms. During my one night stay, I did not have any hot water. When they came to check out the problem they trampled all over the hallway and bathroom with mud on their shoes- and left the mess! Reception staff is at best uninterested, most times they don't even answer the phone. There is no way I would recomend this hotel to anyone for any reason.

An excellent hotel close to the city centre, clean and comfortable, excellent breakfast and helpful staff. I have stayed there many times and always get a warm welcome and very good service. There is underground parking, and a swimming pool too.

Room Tip: The hotel is in a relatively quiet street so no problems with noise or traffic. All the rooms are we...

We stayed in an apartment which was attached to the hotel. The apartment was lovely, airy and plenty of room with our family 2 adults and 2 children 14 and 10. The apartment had a cooker, microwave and fridge which was good if you wanted to self cater. There was no crockery or plates in the cupboards but it did state they would be available if you require them. It's a 5 to 10 minute walk to the main bars and restaurants. Swimming pool was an added bonus as you could get to it straight from the apartment room. Sauna available but didn't use. Overall we enjoyed our stay there.
