“Great place to stay with a car”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

This hotel was great, good location, not right in town but close enough to walk into. We had a rental car and could park right underneath the hotel (12 euros a day) in a safe secure car park building. Breakfast buffet was good, and the rooms were very comfortable and modern.

Room Tip: Elderly people or disabled people should request rooms closer to the lift as the hallways are very l...

We stayed here for 2 nights during the christmas market time. It was very busy in the hotel, I think it must have been fully booked. The room was nice, compact but clean. As I had experience with overcrowded breakfasts in the Motel one in Vienna, we did not book breakfast which was a good thing. It was far too busy and overcrowded. Instead we had breakfast in the center which was close (5 minutes walk) and good too. In the evenings the lobby and bar in the hotel are busy and lively, I have never experienced this in another hotel before. It is nice to come back to your hotel and not be the only one in the bar :-). Good value for money, but skip breakfast!

I love this chain! I stayed at the Motel One in Dusseldorf and this one. Both hotels were priced just right. They're modern with free wifi and plenty of self parking. Rooms are extremely clean and have super Hot water. The staff was super friendly and provided lots of information about the area. I will be staying with Motel One again!

Back in April I booked 7 rooms for this Hotel knowing that we were going to be visiting the K2013 trade fair in Dusseldorf and Hotels there were already booked up or VERY expensive.

After searching through Trip Advisor, I decided upon this Hotel and I was pleased with the decision.

We arrived into Cologne Airport very early on Sunday morning. After renting a car, we drove the 15 minutes or so from the airport to the Hotel and, even though we were only checking in that evening, the staff at the counter had no problem with us sitting and having breakfast, using the Toilets to get changed and checking in our baggage.

We drove off to the Messe in Dusseldorf ( about a 45 minute drive on a normal day).

In the evening, when we got back, check in was pretty quick and we got our door cards and a password for the Free Hotel Wi-fi.

The rooms were small, but spotlessly clean. A small bathroom with brand new Shower, toilet and sink. 2 good quality Bathtowels, 2 handtowels and a floor rug. Soap/Shampoo was a general purpose mini-bottle ( there were 2 of them).

Double bed was comfy. There was a very small desk with stool type chair and a small armchair. No wardrobe, but a small rail for hanging clothes on and a couple of shelves.

The window/door opened completely and looked out onto the back of the building ( towards the river). It was VERY quiet.

There was an Air Conditioning unit but the weather was so mild ( mid October), that it was not necessary to turn it on.

Breakfast in the morning was pretty plentiful and had all the standard stuff of a Continental european hotel.

The Bar area was comfortable, with seating room inside or outside.

Although we had a car and found parking on the street every night, there was an underground parking lot that cost 1.5 Euro an hour or 12 euro/day. I used it a couple of times during the 5 days that we were there.

250 meters away is a large Rewe Supermarket that is open from 0700-2200....so no need to go far to buy bottled water or snacks.

It is about a 12 minute walk into town ( Cathedral/shopping parades) and a 3 minute walk to the UBahn station( which I needed to get to the Koeln Messe on the last day).

Being an Orthodox Jew, I wanted to be relatively close to the Synagogue/Kosher Restaurant on Roonstrasse and this hotel was a 15 minute walk/4 minute drive away.

All in all, I think that it was an Excellent choice all round and if I need to be in either Cologne or Dusseldorf again, I would seriously consider staying there again.

Room Tip: Try and get a room that faces the back of the Hotel ( odd number). Some Road parking has 8-23 parkin...

Located about 10 minutes to city centre and main sights. Very clean and new. Rooms spotless. Staff very helpful and friendly. Underground car park was new, bright, clean and safe. Worth paying the extra for. Breakfast was extra too but also worth the Euros. Lovely choice of cereals, breads and meats etc. coffee, tea and juices. Rooms have air conditioning which wasn't all that effective but we were there in September so no real big problem for us. Our room was at the front of the hotel which overlooks a major road. Lots to see but quite noisy so you will need your window closed at night. Windows totally blocked out all road sounds.

I stayed five nights at this very modern and clean motel while on business. The motel is handily placed to walk to all areas of interest; shopping, restaurants, museums and Cologne Cathedral. I found the staff friendly and most helpful and thankfully able to understand and speak english. Loved the breakfast and you could choose to talk to your immediate neighbours sitting near you or not. Really loved the colour scheme and furnishings and the rooms are excellent, wi-fi was great.

Spacious room in a purpose-built new hotel with excellent sound-proofing. Very clean, with good wifi (but remember to ask for the password before going up to your room) and excellent bathroom with walk-in shower. Location about 15 mins walk south of the main railway station, in a slightly anonymous but not seedy area seemingly dominated by railway model and adult shops. I had dinner in the residential quarter to the northwest of the hotel, plenty of small cafes and quiet squares 5 minutes walk away. Good breakfast in hotel, usual ham, cheese etc.

Surprising amount of greenery visible from my 7th floor room, and plenty of guests enjoying the outside terrace by the entrance. Large lobby with bar and snacks.

Overall somewhat anonymous but excellent quality for business travellers who evidently are the main clientale. Very good value.
