We reserved a week-end in this hotel through a bargain website. Hence, we had excellent value for money as far as the accomodation is concerned. The location is somewhat off the tourist track, although in nice weather it takes only 20 minutes to walk to the city center over the railway bridge. The tramway stop is just outside the hotel and we were a bit surprised that the hotel didn't offer the Cologne Welcome Card -- they aim probably more at business travelers heading for the fair, but nevertheless in the week-end there seem to be mainly tourists.
The breakfast room was very crowded, difficult to find a place to be seated and when we were serving ourselves at the buffet the service had already emptied our plates and cups at the table! Some assistance in seating would be nice.
Reception desk staff is not overwhelmingly friendly, but just the level we're accustomed to in this part of Germany -- the more southern the destination, the friendlier they get, we seem to observe (comparing, for instance, Berlin and Cologne to Munich). A smile must be terribly expensive in Rheinland-Westfalen.
Apart from these remarks, we found it very, very good.
