Eden Hotel Fruh am Dom
Ranked #60 of 263 Hotels in Cologne
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2013

We ended our roadtrip through Germany in Cologne. I know this city fairly well and had my mind set on this hotel, even though they don't have a car park. We parked the car in the Dom-garage, which is just a few steps from the hotel (21 euros for almost 24hrs - which I find a good price).

I loved everything about this hotel: the fact that we could check in early, its location, the spacious room, the nice bathroom, and a great breakfast.

I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Cologne.

We were so happy on arrival at the Eden Hotel that our room was ready, even though it was just before noon. The location is excellent, just 5 mins walk from the train station and right in sight of the cathedral! It was a great base for the weekend, close to shops and restaurants as well. The staff were friendly and the room clean and modern-no complaints there. However (yes, it had to be coming) I wish we had paid more attention to the previous reviews about the noise...Due to the summer heat and no air conditioning, there is no choice but to leave the window open at night and it is very loud outside, even though we were on one of the upper floors and not directly overlooking the square outside. For both nights the party continued until well past 2 am and then trucks and more shouting began again before 6 am! This was maybe worse because there was a building site a few doors away. This hotel would be so much better if only it had air conditioning and good soundproofing.

Stayed at the Eden for one night before heading to Rotterdam.

The location is great. Steps from the magnificent cathedral. In addition, if you are traveling by train, it is a 7-8 minute walk from the train station.

The hotel is also associated with the famous Fruh am Dom restaurant- good German food and beers. Right downstairs from hotel.

The hotel and room is modern but minimalist. Our room (#315) was spacious and clean. The worst part is that there is no air conditioning (which I was aware of). But- the windows only open at the top for about 10 inches. The room becomes very warm as a result. The beds also have only comforters- no flat sheets. In addition, with the windows open you get a lot of restaurant noise and the sound of the chiming of the church bells (several times throughout the night).

The hotel offers a continental breakfast in the morning. No complaints there.

The hotel looks pretty modern, rooms are not very big but quite comfortable. Beds are good, bathroom is modern and functional. Free wifi works good, but you need to ask for a code card at the desk. Just giving it and explain how to use it when guests check in would be better. The only thing missing is airconditioning.
The elevator had some issues closing it's doors, but that was fixed quickly after reporting it at the service desk.
The hotel is internally connected to some of the restaurants next to it, so finding the breakfast room is a bit of an expedition, but once found found the breakfast is quite nice.
We had dinner in one of the restaurants belonging to the same firm, "Brauhaus Cellar", which was a bit disappointing. The food is very simple and it misses taste. The interior design and furniture is medium quality. Price-quality ratio is OK since it is not expensive.
The waiters on the terrace and in the restaurant want to sell you their beer more than any other beverage. It seems they make more money on selling you beer. In the beginning this is funny but after a while their "jokes" when you order something else then a beer becomes annoying.
All in all good for sleeping and breakfast at a central location in the city. Dine elsewhere.

Originally we had booked into the Krone but after two nights changed to stay here at the Eden for the rest of the week. This hotel is very modern inside. Rooms are very clean, decent size, large bathroom. Breakfast is very very good with lots of choice and is taken in a large room on the 2nd floor overlooking the street and square.
This hotel is an excellent - probably one of the best locations in Cologne, it is right across from the cathedral (you can hear the bells quite well if the windows are open) and is only a few minutes walk to the train station.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the front would be quieter as you are right across from the cathedral and the bells...

Stayed at this hotel for one night only but it was great!
The location was perfect. It is very close to the Cologne station, where lots of nice restaurants and shops were around.
The interior decoration was nice; also, the room was very cozy.
I had a very nice experience at this hotel!

The hotel is well-located near the cathedral, main train station, and shops. The front-desk was efficient and friendly. The room was very basic and nondescript but did include free wi-fi, satellite TV, and a mini-bar. Overall, it was a very average hotel experience and we expected much more for the price.
