The hotel has 2 buildings very close to each other, don't just look at the pictures make sure you ask which building your room will be and check the room.
It is close to the train station (which is one stop from the main station) and 20-25 minutes walk to Kölner Dom/center over the bridge.
The rooms are tidy, clean and have enough room for 2 with a decent bathroom including a shower. Breakfast is surprisingly good.
The downside for me is the staff; house keeping tried to get in the room at 8.30 with his key and after one knock. I told the receptionist the incident and suggested that they warn the staff as 8.30 is a very early hour (not close to check-out time) and they should check better if guests were still in the room. The receptionist responded me that this was not a 4-5 star hotel and they only have one house keeper therefore it may happen also told me I should have hung the "do not disturb" sign to the door. ( as if it is acceptable for house-keeping to get in the room before check-out time if there is not a sign) I explained that the sign is in German and suggested they could at least add English version so that the non-German speaking guests could understand the sign and use it if that is the case. She told me that I could always go to the reception and ask what the sign meant.
So beware that the sign written in German in the room means "do not disturb" (or something like that) and make sure you use it, otherwise be ready for house-keeping while sleep.
