“Comfortable room, great breakfast!”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

We booked this hotel because it was close to the Cologne Central Railway, but it turned out to be a really great find! The room was comfortable and really soundproofed, and the breakfast was lovely with lots of nice things to eat. The staff were all really helpful and knowledgeable and the Hotel was indeed very well placed in central Cologne. Would recommend this Hotel!

We stayed for a night at Brandenburger Hof in June 2013. Seeing as we were traveling by train, and were only in Cologne for one night, we wanted a place that was centrally located. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Although the rooms were a bit sparse (no tv/phone), they were clean and comfortable. Perhaps one of the best parts of staying at Brandenburger Hof was the buffet breakfast. It was one of the largest we saw our whole time in Germany! If you are looking for a place close to the train station/major sights, I would recommend checking Brandenburger Hof out.

We stayed for three nights to take in the Christmas markets. The staff were very friendly, the room clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was superb and beautifully presented. Location could not have been better. We were made to feel very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This is not a 5 star Marriot, which is just 100 metres away and a good place if you need a taxi.
But its a rare hotel - they remember your name, they remember your room number. They remember you like your coffee at the end of breakfast ..... you don't get any of that at a Marriot!
The atmosphere is that of a friends house where you feel really welcome.
The breakfast is superb - see my picture

Our usual hotel chain choices were either fully booked or had room rates that were rather exorbitant when we were searching online for accommodation in Cologne. We looked at an online booking site and saw this property that was located near Cologne Hbf and had a reasonable room rate. We quickly looked at the reviews here in TA and felt relieved with the mostly positive reviews.

Brandenburger Hof was really convenient since it was near the train station. It was drizzling when we arrived at Cologne Hbf, but we did not get soaking wet due to the short distance. Our room was ready even though we arrived a lot earlier than the posted check-in time. We were given a room at the ground floor (Room 4) as we requested in our online reservation after reading the reviews in TA that there was no lift available. We had no problems with the staff as they were very friendly and helpful. Furthermore, there were no issues when we used my credit card for payment.

The room was a little dated but was very clean, especially the ensuite bathroom which appeared newly renovated. There was no problem with noise since the room was not facing the street, although there was little traffic using the road anyway. Wifi in the room was available free of charge.

We really appreciated the breakfast that was included in our room rate. There was a good selection available to start the morning right. We also noticed that dinnerware was meticulously arranged on the tables.

Only stayed one night but was OK for the price and location. Very basic accomodations but very clean... Very short walk to Railroad Station. No elevator, so not a place for someone unable to lift/walk between floors. If you can request a room away from the street - much quieter.

Room Tip: not street front...

Great value small hotel just by the railway station. Very friendly and accommodating staff, simple but clean and functional rooms. Good breakfast. Off-street parking for my motorbike was a big plus. I'd stay again if I was visiting Cologne.
