Thanks to the staff at this hotel for a very enjoyable stay. The breakfast is fabulous! Great location, within walking distance to all major attractions, such as the picturesque bridge, the Lion, the train station, boat tours, etc. The bed was very comfortable & the room was clean & fresh. We had a great view of the Pilatus Mt.

Stayed there for one night, the location is good but every other thing was a bit poor, shower was small and bad, and room was not clean. At least breakfast was nice, variety of options and flexible hours.
Sadly there are better options nearby.

Awful beyond my feeble powers of description. The room, booked for three, was very small. The bathroom was antiquated. The eccentricities of the staff rapidly became very boring. We were asked to hand in our key every time we left the hotel. We were assured reception was manned 24/7. Three times we returned to find the door locked and a sign announcing that the staff would be back in a minute. Well German cigarette breaks take longer than a minute, I can assure you. When they were there they thought that it was appropriate to engage you in long conversations about Richmond upon Thames or some such nonsense. I suggest a change of noun in the title, from Konige to Dumkopfe. That said the breakfast lady was efficient and kind enough to make tea. So a tiny ray of light there.

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel.

Inadvertently booked two nights at this hotel which I subsequently discovered I had also stayed at some years ago. As then, it was of an acceptable standard for the price paid with, on this occasion, no disturbance from the noise of trains - due to proximity to the Hauptbahnhof (have they had replacement windows?).

Single rooms are quite small - with a narrow single bed - in contrast to the spacious, spotlessly clean en suite bathrooms. In my room (no. 41), the safety deposit box had clearly been broken for a long time and there were no facilities at reception (contrary to the Internet brief when booking).

Breakfast buffet is good and the staff are friendly. Would recommend it in general.

The location of the hotel - just behind the Dom in Cologne - is great. The price is very reasonable.
The staff were friendly and efficient.
The hotel is small but the double room, with a view out over the river, was large enough.
Breakfast was simple, but is standard for a small German hotel.

I had a reserved room at this hotel. My wife and I show up after a long day of travel on a late train into Cologne. We arrived at the hotel around midnight and come to find out they gave our room away since it was a busy night.
They sent us to their "sister" hotel under the same management and come to find out they were full as well. In their words, "First one to show up with cash gets the room." AWFUL!!

Had to go get another hotel at 1 am after talking with them what the meaning of a reservation is. Insert Seinfeld bit here.

Just a 5 minute walk from the railway station and cathedral, excellent location for an overnight.
Found the staff to be most welcoming and helpful, Able to store our luggage for a few hours whilst we explored the city. The room was very clean, the bathroom was updated, breakfast adequate.
For the price paid, good value.

Room Tip: Our room was overlooking the railway station, noise did not bother us unduly.
