You could not ask to be better located. The hotel overlooks the cathedral, and is less than five minutes walk from the Rhein, the Altstadt and the main shopping streets.
The place was sold to me as a five star hotel. It was a very good hotel, with helpful, friendly service. But expect more of a four star feel. The room we had was really quite poky though very well appointed, and there is a notable absence of the little extras that "make" somewhere five star. We paid a reasonable three star sort of price, so that was fine, but list prices are very high and these wouldn't be worth paying.
Additional bonuses to mention: lovely, if compact, bathrooms with wet room style showers and luxurious toiletries. And range of UK channels including BBC and ITV - 1&2 on both. Bedroom safe was more than large enough to take a laptop. Free mineral water every day.
Bathrobes provided (one by default, two on request). Tea, coffee, kettle all in room too.
Breakfast is a whopping €25 per person per day, but there are plenty of places nearby. Try particularly Café Scholl - http://www.cafe-scholl.de/en/breakfast.html - and Café Jansen, a part of the Fassbender chain, at Obenmarspforten 7.
I would certainly stay here again providing the rate was right.
