“Spot on”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Stayed here at beginning of June, hotel a few minutes from station and most attractions easily within walking distance. Room was a standard single room which I thought could easily fit a double bed , nice and clean hotel and friendly staff made for a pleasant stay, only gripe was the bed pillow I prefere them with more substance.

We spent a weekend I Cologne with my husband. The regular room was ok, small and a little worn down but ok for sleeping. The staff was nice and the breakfast was very good.
Distance to the train station and the city center was prefect.

We had booked a regular room which was clean and comfortable, although a little eccentrically decorated. After the first night we paid an additional 20 Euros to upgrade to the comfort room which was so very worth it. The decor, AC, space, bathroom, etc, was excellent and we loved it and would definitely return. The hotel also has a very nice breakfast included in the room price and has excellent resources for how to get the most out of the city, including recommendations for restaurants (it pointed us to one particular restaurant which gave us the best meal we had in Germany on our trip). Finally, the staff was exceedingly friendly, engaging and helpful. Next time we are in Cologne, we will be back.

Room Tip: Without question, it is worth 20 Euros more to upgrade to the comfort rooms.

Stayed for three nights in a comfort room. A very pleasant hotel. The breakfast was more than adequate, anyone complaining about it needs a reality check. Our room was of reasonable size, quiet and the bed was comfortable. Staff were polite and efficient. No noise problems in our room, just ensure you are not in a cheaper room on the road side. It is only a short walk to the main part of town. There are a number of good eating places nearby.

Room Tip: Get a comfort room

I stayed 2 nights and was very pleased with my room, which was decorated with a painting that made me feel I was in a art gallery. The room was large and the bathroom good size and modern good shower. Reception people were friendly and helpful. Breakfast which was included and had a good choice. There were several waiters that came with your coffee and poured it to start, and you had a good sized pot to yourself. This was located about a 15 minute walk to the Cathedral and not far from the Rhine River.

Convenient hotel to stay for a couple nights in the city. 5 mins driving from the station. 10 mins walking from the main Cathedral. Rooms are clean, not small. Staff is helpful. Breakfast is good, full of everything. It's also pizza place next to the hotel. Great value of money!

I was expecting more from a 3 star superior hotel. The breakfast didn't have to much variety of food. The coffee is bad. 2 or 3 types of bread. The cheese isn't good. When the kiwi is finish the don't replace with the same fruit.In fact the fruit is cut in pieces, like a fruit salad, but in separate plates.
The room was good, the bathroom too. The size of the room is good for a short stay in the city. The staff is friendly.

Room Tip: Choose a room that are in back, because of the noise.
