Friends had booked the hotel for a joint birthday party, doing their own catering, as this hotel only does breakfast. I arrived 2 1/5 hours late but the chap at check in was so friendly and welcoming it helped to settle me immediately. Bedroom was above the front door, so expect a little noise from people coming and going but it is surprisingly quiet otherwise. Room was very spacious, clean, comfortable and relaxing. The bathroom had a walk in shower, toilet and basin, nothing too fancy but all that was needed. The fitness room is in the basement, bike, stepper rowing machine and a selection of weights machines, basic but again, covers all the bases. Breakfast was very good, selection of hot and cold with fresh and dried fruit, cereals, breads, cold cuts or sausage, bacon and egg. I also saw someone order pancakes, which looked great! Coffee was excellent and a generous whole pot just for me.
Décor throughout is modern but not homogenous and boring like some hotels. The owner of the building is an architect so there are quirky touches throughout, strong colours, lots of books to browse, charming staff and a generally good feel.
This hotel is a good 30-40 minute walk from central Cologne and not very near to shops and restaurants, which some might miss, but it has a small garden and its own car parking, which is fantastic for Cologne. Also, it is only about 10-15 minutes walk from the Cologne Messe trade fair centre, which is great for business people.
I'll definitely be back and recommend happily to any and all!
