Reviewed 3 December 2013 via mobile

Rooms very small and complementaries for one person, even in double/twin rooms. Not five stars standard. However, the rest is 'up to speed'. Very good breakfast, excellent service and kind personnel. The hotel is very well situated, in the town centre and next door to the cathedral. Nice pub in the hotel. Will recommend the hotel.

We stayed here for a night for the Christmas markets. Great position near the station and Dom. Reception staff very efficient and friendly, granted the room is a bit small but has tea making facilities, nice bathroom and comfortable bed, also very quiet in and outside the hotel. I found the free Wifi to be more than adequate. Breakfast excellent, we got a great rate of €135 per night including breakfast which we though was very good value. Would definitely stay here again

I stayed in this hotel earlier November 2013 for 1 night during my business trip to Cologne.
The major reason of choosing this hotel was of course being close to central location and heart of Cologne.
The hotel is placed just behind the Dom and close to all restaurants and shopping facilities and I loved the hotel for this.
But I'd not say the same thing for the staying quality. The rooms were very dark and small; I choosed one room with double bed but it was small and just joint of 2 single beds with a very non-conforting huge space in the middle.

The hotel is old, and needs some modifications.
According to today's necessities, it doesn't meet 5-star requirements.And the price is too high.

Reviewed 15 November 2013

As mentioned by others it really is a great location, most of the key attractions are close. We were however very disappointed with the accommodation, the rooms are tiny, smaller than I have ever experienced in this class of hotel. Storage is absolutely minimal in the room, maybe not an issue for a one night stay, but beyond that you struggle, for example the suitcase had to live beside my bed, quiet ridiculous. Breakfast was at best average, the food was cold and the scrambled egg you could have made bricks from. Yes there was a wide selection of food, but maybe the staff were just overrun. Staff in were generally indifferent, nothing that stood out. Wifi was ok for e.mail, but you could pay for an upgraded version. Bed was very comfortable and reasonably quiet. No tea coffee in the room. I've stayed in better 3 star hotels, in this case location isn't everything!

Room Tip: Consider an upgrade if you want some reasonable space.

POSITIVES: The location is great, very near the train station. The lobby is beautiful and the service at reception was very friendly and professional. The room was quiet. The bathroom was quite nice and the soaps were particularly good (nice fragrance). The bedding was on the luxurious side and the wi-fi was okay.

NEGATIVES; The shower floor needed repair and the showerhead holder wouldn't grip on its mount. There was no bottleopener supplied, so had to open a bottle of water with my nailclipper. Breakfast was overpriced at 25 euros! So instead I went out the entrance, turned left and walked 1 square over to a little workaday place called Kaffeebud for an egg-and-ham sandwich, orange juice and capuccino for 6 euros total. Finally, the elevator doors were ve-e-e-r-r-y slow: around 30 seconds to open, every time! You expect more from a 4-star positioned at the higher end of the market.

I have just stayed 4 nights on a business trip. Lovely room, could not hear the cathedral bells at night :). Lovely breakfast - I even took some food up for an evening snack - allowed and encouraged. Very friendly staff throughout. Great location, 30 secs from the Dom, 1 min from the tram stop. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights whilst attending an exhibition. Although the location for the old town, cathedral and Messe was good it was not worth the 185 Euros per night plus breakfast I paid. Rooms were very small, wifi not very reliable and needs a bit of tlc. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
