“Great location, price and service.”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

The location of that hotel is exactly what you would like while staying in Cologne. Whether for holiday or business. 2 minutes walk to Dome Square and the Dome itself, museums and all attractions are in walking distance. Koln Messe is across the river - 15 minutes walk.
Surrounding area is full of different eateries with various cuisine. Main train station is around the corner.

The hotel is of a very traditional German type. Small clean rooms, comfortable bedding, great Bfast. Reception personnel were men over their 50s, with different smiling ability :). Free wifi, but need to pick up log in details from reception on daily basis.

Would stay again if happen to stay in Koln.

Room Tip: Both sides if the hotel will be exposed to the Dome bells work, but the front will add the street no...

We arrived in Frankfurt a few days ago for our first trip overseas and headed up to Cologne and the Top Hotel. The room was spacious and meticulously clean and the hotel was in the perfect location, just a few blocks from the Dom and most major attractions. Further, as previously discussed in other posts, the breakfast is spectacular.
The only negative at all was that when we arrived at 10am we could not check in after having spent the whole night on the plane and desperately needing sleep and had to wait until 2. However, this may have been an issue anywhere and we cannot fault this awesome hotel for that.
Overall, it was a much better than expected first stay in Europe.

Having stayed in many different hotels and inns in Germany, I can tell you that all the beds were incredibly hard, so the fact that this hotel was no different is not a strike against it. Germans must sleep on really hard beds at home. That aside, everything was good. The staff was extremely helpful in recommending restaurants and getting us around town. The location is almost within sight of the Cologne Cathedral. The breakfast was quite adequate, and like other German hotels/inns, it goes quite late into the morning. There are many restaurants nearby, as well as a pedestrian shopping area. One warning is that in Germany, all the stores are closed on Sunday. Also, in Cologne, pretty much everything shuts down after dinner so if you want coffee or dessert, you better get it early.

If you were to parachute a hotel into the perfect location in Cologne as a visitor to the city, this would be the Koenigshof. In a quiet side street, you are virtually a few seconds walk from the Cathedral, shops, restaurants, cafes and bars and minutes from the Main Station and river, everything is on the doorstep. Aside from the superb location, the hotel is perfect in terms of value-for-money, nice rooms, excellent, professional and very friendly service, nothing is too much trouble and offers everything you would wish for when visiting Cologne. As an all-round package, it surely can't be beaten.

We recently spent 3 nights at this hotel, having stayed here 4 times previously. The hotel is ideally situated for the station, main shopping area, cathedral and other tourist attractions. Our room was spacious with a large bathroom and very clean with nice toiletries.

The hotel staff are very pleasant and helpful and breakfast is more than adequate.

The only downside was the Wifi (which was available free) as every time we went out of the room it dropped out and we had to log in again.

Having said this we will be returning to the Koenigshof Hotel when we return to Cologne.

Excellent location, well presented and very polite staff. Rooms are basic however well priced. Breakfast deserves its own review, it is beautiful!! Great continental breakfast, big breakfast room and quick service. I have never seen so much cheese and ham in my life! Would stay here again if just for the breakfast

I will repeat what others are saying about this hotel but it deserves it. Fantastic location. Train station, Dom (cathedral), restaurants and shopping are reachable by foot. One of the few cities where I didn't used taxi or public transportation during my stay (also, please forget about rent-a-car - you will not need it).To be honest I've expected less for money paid. Room was clean and very well equipped with everything. Free wifi (just ask reception for access details - they are changed daily). Hearty breakfast. Staff is very friendly. One small thing - no AC. And outside was +32. But I will stay in this hotel in the future despite the outside temperature everytime I'll visit Cologne - and I will be there very often from now.
