My husband and I stayed at the Lint for 4 nights in August. Lint is a small boutique hotel, with comfortable (even if not large) rooms. We were accommodated in the first floor, so wifi worked fine in our room. TV was very small, and only with German channels (it did not bother us).
We didn’t have much contact with front desk (occupied until 9 PM) staff, and when we did, they were polite, although not totally helpful. We asked for tips on city tours and the receptionist advised us to go to Koln’s tourist information center…No tips on local restaurants either. He helped us carrying our luggage upstairs (hotel doesn’t have a lift), though.
About Lint’s location:
Pros – it is wonderful for visiting the main points of interest in Koln’s Old City Center. The street is pretty quiet during weekdays, except for groups of German tourists laughing at the statues of Tünnes and Schäl (figures from the puppet theater of Cologne), which are located in the square at the back of the hotel (our room faced this square).
Cons – Lintgasse is a pedestrian road, stone paved, and so pulling our luggage from and to the train station was a little challenging (there are some steps on the way too). Noise (music and people talking aloud) from many bars in the neighborhood can be a bit disturbing on Fridays and Saturdays.
All in all, I’d surely recommend this hotel for people with lightweight luggage, staying there on weekdays. On the other hand, I’d be more cautious to recommend it for people traveling by train with standard luggage and staying there for the weekend.
