I only stayed at this hotel for one night on a shopping trip to Cologne. The hotel is only about 10 minutes walk from the main shopping district. The dom is about a 15 minutes walk so you really are well located. The hotel is very easily accessible by car and they have a garage but you have to park in the spaces that is reserved by the hotel otherwise you will be paying 12 euro for 24 hours. When I arrived all reserved spaces were taken so had to park in non-hotel space and didn't know this would mean I was paying 12 euro extra. So better wait and drive around the block again if you want to save a few bucks. But this is the only minus about the hotel.
Rooms are very spacious, I took a double bed meaning it has two mattresses which was a bit bigger but would take queen next time. The mattress aren't zipped together which is a problem if you are not a steady sleeper. You might up in between in the middle of the night. But beds are very comfy. My room was facing the main road but it was very quiet staying at the 4th floor. Bathroom is not that big but very clean and modern. I didn't need any closet space so didn't use any but there is some. WIFI if free and very stable. No radio or alarm which make come in handy if you don't have a smartphone. But who doesn't I wonder.
Hotel lobby and bar is very modern and looks great with equal service. Hotel desk helped me with diner reservation although hotel only took walk in that night ;) But they informed me which is appreciated. Breakfast is good and continental at a nice price. It can get a bit crowed so if you like to have breakfast quietly I would suggest having it before 9:30 or 9:00 even. Hotel kept our bag with them after we checked out and went shopping.
So overall a great experience with a minor parking issue. But apart from that a great hotel. Will book it again in the future as it will be perfect for Weihnacht. Good value for money!
