“Charming and friendly in Cologne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

A small and nice hotel not far off Cologne downtown, and a one minute walk from the river. Friendly staff and nice rooms. Wi-Fi, but you'll have to pay for it, and ethernet in the room. Standard hotel-breakfast, with a small, but nice selection of food.

I stayed in this Hotel for 3 days in Nov. It is located in a calm & quite neighborhood, just across the river rhine. Location is not exactly in the city centre, but you can reach there by foot in just 15 min.
Hotel is having very nice historical feel. Wall paintings, musical instruments kept in the aisles and decor looks good.
My only complaint was that the room was having a single bed & not the Kings' bed we are used to find in business hotels.
Breakfast was normal. You cant get anything more from their kitchen after breakfast is over. But Hotel was kind to provide me a Coffee when i asked for it in evening. Wifi is not free, be prepared to shell out 2.95 Euro for 1 hr.
I guess for 90 Euro, it is still OK in Cologne.

Room Tip: Ask for upper Floor rooms. you will have a nice view.

Don't even consider staying at this poor excuse for a hotel. They will even charge you 80% - 90% cancellation charge if you cancel your booking ONE MONTH before! The miserable interior is matched by the miserable staff. If you want a drink, you'll have to get one from reception and sit on the stairs!

Unbelievably bad..........

Room Tip: There are no good points! All bad.

110euros only bought me a single bed with a tiny bathroom. i would not call this a hotel room - more a prison cell.
the pictures on the website are misleading and the staff are arrogant and dismissive. That said the lady in the kitchen was very nice and polite. another positive note is the quiet location but these are the only 2 good things i experienced here
the next morning i checked out immediately and went to a chain hotel for less money, a room three times the size and shock horror - a double bed... sometimes is better to stick with the reliable big chains! the cancellation policy is very tough though - i still have to pay for the whole reservation!

The photos are very misleading. This is a cheap hotel with very cheap furniture, cheap doors. The two little windows in my room are too high for me to look outside.
Their cancellation policy is tough and no wonder why.
I am in this hotel and I want to escape. Escape, yes, I feel in prison.
HELPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The hotel is not situated 900m from the Dom as some descriptions might have you believe. The room was fine but the bathroom was very small. The hotel does not look old or classic as shown in the pictures, only some parts do. Overall, the service was good and the breakfast was nice.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2006

I have just returned from a long weekend at the Christmas markets in Cologne with my mother, We had a twin room on the 2nd floor which was very spacious, clean and in good order. The breakfast was plentiful and restocked right up until they stopped serving at 10am. Cologne Cathedral is a 15/20 minute walk (at a fairly fast pace) down the Rhine which was ideal. I would definatley stay at this hotel again.

  • Liked — Clean facilities and spacious rooms
  • Disliked — no evening meal facility and no tra/coffee machines in rooms
  • Tips/Secrets — fold the pillow in half as it is feathers and so reduces to nothing when you lie on it!
