We had a lovely weekend in Cologne and Motel One helped a lot to make it possible.
The staff is very kind and helpful, the rooms are big enough and clean, the breakfast was good, the location is perfect and everything for a very good price!
We went for the Christmas markets and it was very nice. We came from NL, so we were glad that we could park our car on their parking garage (very cheap rate).
I would definitely recommend Motel One.

Another successful Motel One: clean. smart staff. efficient. rooms are quiet even if facing the busy street. rooms have everything you need. No rubber mattress protectors, thanks! 7€ taxi incl. tip to central station. Some simple, tasteful restaurants within walking distance.

Drawbacks don't matter if you are just looking for a quiet night and stay alone: central, but not a pretty area (Cologne isn't a pretty city anyways). Rooms small. Design is the same efficient modern design of all Motel Ones; know one, know all. For some reason Motel One insists on a smallish shower screen design that induces floor spillovers for their cleaning staff, doesn't really help conserving towels either.

This hotel is very new and modern. For the price, it is a fantastic value and is a great home base in Cologne. The location is walking distance to shops and restaurants in downtown Cologne, and only a few minutes away from the nearest U Bahn station. We go to Cologne often, and always stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: We found that the "00" rooms on the end of each corridor are a bit larger than the other rooms, so request one of these if you want a little extra space.

Located in a relatively new complex, just to the south of the Alt Stadt and around 20 minutes walk to the Hauptbahnhof.

The reception area was spacious with very efficient check-in despite arriving in the midst of the Karneval celebrations.

Our room, although smallish, was generally fitted out to a high standard, although the bed surround looked like it the bed surround had been finished in wood effect 'fablon' and appeared a bit cheap. However, the bed was firm and comfortable. We also found the room to be pleasantly warm and well insulated from the adjacent traffic noise. The 'log fire' sequence on the TV was also a nice touch.

The bathroom was well designed with excellent rain shower and black shower tray to hide any marks! Don't know why nobody has ever thought of those before now?

The breakfast comprised a well stocked continental buffet was was good value at 7.50 Euro per person. However, despite the breakfast service being extremely busy due to Karneval, with people nearly falling over one another, the servery was kept well replenished. The breakfast area also including interesting pictures featuring aerial shots of barges plying the River Rhine.

We didn't spend much time in the hotel, although I briefly visited the bar, which was innovatively and attractively designed with a good selection of drinks. I might have stayed longer had it not been full of slightly jaded clientele who'd clearly enjoyed themselves at the Karneval!

All in all, we enjoyed our stay here. Motel One does the hotel essentials to a high standard for a reasonable price. This hotel is modern, high quality with very good attention to detail.

Room Tip: Despite being located close to a traffic interchange, we found our roon facing the street to be well insulated from any traffic noise.
