“Does what it says on the tin …”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

This is a very cheap hotel and as cologne was only a one night stay for me I wasn't that fussed and didn't want to spend a lot of money.

The hotel is easy to find about a 10-15 minute walk from the main station and cathedral the check in staff were good our room wasn't ready on arrival but we popped out and back later and check in was pretty quick. The rooms however are very standard and extremely dated it reminded me of a prison camp dull and grey walls with big metal doors. The bed was ok comfortable had a decent nights sleep the shower could do with a revamp as was small and awkward but I can't complain as like I say does what it's purpose is there for. The hotel needs modernising and I think it was starting to happen when we we there as new flooring was going down.

One major compliment I can pay is we had to miss breakfast as we had to leave at 7 but the reception staff kindly made us a packed breakfast to take away which we grateful of and the first time I've ever known a hotel to do that.

I would stay here again but if your after something other than somewhere to sleep wash and get changed I'd look elsewhere.

We booked this hotel through booking.com. The hotel is very close to the hansaring tram/tube station (approx 4 mins walk) and is just the next station from cologne central station (Hbf), and 2 stations away from messe cologne. As we were three person travelling together we booked a triple sharing room, to our surprise, on arrival we were upgraded to a large suite room on the top floor with a huge private balcony. The morning breakfast is not a large spread, and could be improved. Overall would definitely recommend this hotel as it's reasonably priced, good room size, and excellent location close to the city center with many shops, pubs, restaurants nearby.

We were in Cologne for only 1 night and wanted to stay in a budget hotel. This is good option as its 10-15 min walk to Cathedral/Padlock Bridge/City Centre/Koln Train Station. The rooms are warm, basic and small. The beds are a bit soft if you dont have severe back problems then it should be fine. Shower everything in bathroom worked fine, sufficient cabinets. There are restaurants and shop nearby. Breakfast has good options. Staff is very friendly, helpful and guided us on directions to city centre. Cons - no kettle and safe in the room.

The hotel has close proximity with hansaring Station.But please dont go there.The warned us for water dripping in the bathroom and did nt specify the room number. We stayed there for 4 nights in 3 rooms.The next day during check out the claimed 250 Euros without any warning and when asked to explain the threatened to call police, we had our train to catch o couldnt fuss with them, so had to pay and leave. The food was very basic not much choices ...cooked food basically only scrambled eggs or boiled eggs and other choices were tinned fruits, bread, yoghurt, turkey and ham slices for all the days..Due to the K Fair in Dusseldorf we also paid 170 euros per double room and 190 euros for trip room per night in advance.Horrendously expensive for the type of rooms and their service.
Please dont stay in this hotel at all.

10 - 15 minute walk to central station and cathedral. Hotel was clean but average in all ways. Breakfast was continental, again average to poor. No Bar or other eating facilities and rooms were very hot with no tempurature control, but could open windows. CNN was only english speaking TV channel.

Location is great, the continental breakfast is also good. But the third bed is a catastrophe, it is a camp bed with a mattress. When we asked the staff if we replace the room said they would not be able to without bosses in Berlin so far not been at work for several days. In the end, we have added a mattress on the bed and it was just like camping.

We stayed there for 2 days ad things i like about this hotel are location, price and wi-fi. Rooms are quite small (at leats our was) and walls are really thin you can hear all around. Other way round bathroom is quite big and got 2 sinks. Location for hotel is also nice Hansa ring station is really close and lots of cafes and restaurants are nearby. Breakfast is ok but quite average for my taste but for this price is good enough. Also hotel looks old especially elevator. Wi-fi worked well for us so more or less we enjoyed our stay there.
