Spent 2 nights in this hotel. Only a few minutes walk from the train station and easy to find, central location. Had good night's sleep and the breakfast was good. Friendly and helpful staff.
Would definitely recommend this hotel for a short stay on a limited budget.

Me and a friend stayed for one night. The price was reasonable. The room was nice (one of our towels smelled badly of cigarette smoke, but that is the only complaint re: room). The breakfast (included) was great! The hotel was very accommodating when we requested to check-out a bit later. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location (close to train station and cologne cathedral) Highly recommended!

Friendly family owned hotel! Very good location... Close to the Fair Cologne (20 minutes by foot), downtown, cathedral (5 minutes by foot) and the riverside's restaurants (10 minutes by foot)! Excellent breakfast. Free parking in the hotel's yard, and free wi-fi.

Room Tip: Rooms on the yard side are quieter.

I stayed at this hotel with my mom one night and had a wonderful experience. My reservation was confirmed by email almost immediatly after my request on the website. They asked us at which time we planned to arrive and gave us the room in that minute (eventhough it was around 10 am). The hotel is very near to the train station (it is easier to find it if you exit on the exact opposite side of the station´s main entrance). The room and the bath are very spacious and spotless clean. They have fresh soft towels, hair dryer, nice soap bars, etc. The bed was confortable. As others had mentioned, the breakfast was the best part of it all: several kind of breads, fruit, yogurt, eggs, juice, cheese, cereals, coffee/tea. The staff is multilingual and there is always someone ready to help you at the front desk with a wonderful attitude. WI-FI worked perfectly. We loved our stay in Koeln and would defintitelly recommend this hotel.

Close to the train station and to the center. Easy to reach about every part in the city from there.
OK rooms, clean bathrooms, fantastic breakfast buffet.
Very friendly and helpful people.

This hotel reminds me of traveling in Europe 35 years ago. There is still a brass plate on the wall saying "Recommended in Europe on $25 per day". This is a hotel to come at the end of the day and get a good nights sleep then get up, have a great breakfast and get on with your day. It is not a hotel which you would Lounge around in all day.

The reception desk is open 24 hours, and as some guests have noted, noise does carry through the hallways. The man behind the desk I stayed could not have been friendlier. The registration is done by hand - no computers here at all. The keys are real keys, not plastic cards, and you leave them at reception on your way out.

I went for the rock bottom priced room - single no bath for €42. It actually had 2 beds and was tiny. It was also spotless, had a modern sink, some lovely fresh towels and cakes of soap.

a couple of caveats: 1. online booking engines reported this hotel booked out when a simple phone call got me a room immediately. 2. there are tons of these little hotels around the station which are not in trip advisor (2 more in the same street alone) - they might be worth a look too before you go for this one.
