Das Kleine Stapelhauschen
Ranked #79 of 263 Hotels in Cologne
Reviewed 25 June 2014

This hotel is ideally situated for a short visit to Koln. It lies along the waterfront on a lively square a few minutes walk from the cathedral and the altstadt. My single room was clean and in excellent condition with a good selection of television channels and wi-fi. Staff is friendly and helpful and the "hotel hund", Paul is adorable. The breakfast is more than ample. The toliets and showers are shared but are clean and neat. Toliets are located near the bedrooms. The only disappointment was that the (one) shower was two floors up from my room. I will certainly be back to this hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms on the water front side have a great view of the square but are quiet noisy since people a...

We had a lovely experience here with my husband, 2 teenagers and our eldest daughter and her baby (10 months old).

The hotel was clean, staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful and the dog who greeted you at the bar was lovely. The breakfast was excellent; plentiful and fresh and traditional German.

We had 3 rooms and each had a sink and window that opened wide. It was hot when we were there but nothing an open window did not fix. Also because we did not face the Rhine, it was quite quiet.

The location cannot be beat and we overlooked the smaller church beside the hotel. The Rhine was right outside our door and we could walk everywhere.

We also had a car and easily found a carpark that was within walking distance of the hotel.

We would return in a heartbeat. All of the children (save the mama with the baby, she would have preferred a toilet and shower in the room) stated they would choose this hotel again over our amazing flat in Berlin and our 5 star hotels in Trier and Frankfurt.

Room Tip: Consider a room facing the church beside the hotel. This made for a quiet sleep with open windows on...

Hotel was perfectly situated in the old town. The staff were more than friendly, nothing too much trouble. The rooms was basic but adequate, even the shared bathroom felt like it was en-suite, it was that close.

Room Tip: Ask for a hairdryer - they keep them downstairs

Perfect in the center, in front of The Rhein river, in the middle of hussle and bussle and just 200 meters away from the wonderful Cathedral, with a lot of bar and great restaurant around there. The staff is really kind and helpful, and the room are really cosy, clean and warm. I would definitively choose again this B&B.

We stayed for one night during our 12 day road trip from Brussels through Germany and ending in Paris. The location could not have been better.....view of the Rhine and a lovely area to walk to many restaurants as well as the Cathedral. The hosts were very friendly and an ample breakfast was included. The room we booked was small and had a sink only (shared toilet and shower on floor) but we chose this 13th century hotel for the unique experience and were not disappointed. However, my future preference would be for a private bathroom.

Room Tip: We stayed on a Thursday night and noise was not a problem. For those with an auto, there is an under...

Stayed for a week for business. A great homely place. Nice breakfast. Clean and tidy rooms. In the middle of old town, lots of atmosphere, but very loud on weekends. Very easy to walk to Dom and other attractions.
