The hotel satisfied in my one night stay.
It is 10m walking distance from city center.
Walking path to center is also nice.
Very clean hotel, new, very efficiently designed rooms, free wifi coverage in all hote, nicely decorated.
If you are staying in Koln for just a few day, you may select it without thinking.
Amenities a bit poor, no fitness center, no telephone in room.
I booked two rooms, one for me and my wife, one for my parents.
My parents asked for a room with separate beds, it turned there is not such a room in the hotel.
We asked for extra bed, it turned out extra bed in room, it was also not possible and not available in the hotel.
These are the things you can check at the booking stage so I can not blame the hotel for not having bed options.

In Summary worth to money. Price / quality ratio is good.

This is the best innovation the hotel industry has seen in the last year. Our whole team sleeps - whereever it's possible in Motel One. The one at Waidmarkt in Cologne is a very new one with a nice bar and nice outside sitting are. Love it!

Myy company booked me there for 5 nights over two weeks. It looks nice, but there are too many things that go wrong:

- Aircondition wasn't working in my room. Got another room and it was the same. The entire AC system must have been broken. I can't sleep in 28 degrees.
- There are no irons / ironing boards in your room. If you want to iron your shirt before your business meeting, you can borrow one at the reception. Except they didn't have any. So you show up with a wrinkled shirt.
- And when things go wrong, you can't call the reception from your room because there's no phone in the room. SO you have to go down to the reception every time.
- Rooms are super tiny.
- No fitness center.
- Wireless didn't work one of the nights.


It's a tourist hotel and it's hit and miss.

I stayed visited Cologne for a weekend and stayed in Motel One, which is an excellent choice if you are looking for an affordable and comfortable stay. For me, the most important things in a hotel are a comfortable bed, quietness, friendly helpful staff and a good hot shower, all of which Motel One scores top marks on. The one thing that stuck out most for me was the friendliness of the staff who always went out of their way to help me, for example printing my boarding pass for my flight home. They were also very engaging and interested. My only negative was the absence of a safety deposit box in the room but it didn't take from a great stay. Full marks to the management team on delivering such a great hotel product! Look forward to staying again..

Room Tip: For quiet room, choose one at the back looking onto the courtyard

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.
