“Easy access to old center”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

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!

Room Tip: Go for a queen bed. It's slightly smaller but no risk of mattresses sliding apart during the nig...

We stayed in this hotel for one night. The first positive surprise was that the underground carpark (partly public) had an elevator directly connecting with the lobby. We were warmly received, check-in was fast and efficient. Another very convenient fact is that breakfast is offered until 11am. Even if you don't make it (like us) you don't have to miss your cappuccino. Walking to the city takes only 8 mins, or if you're keen on visiting the cathedral it's only 13 mins. the rooms are very spacious and the one we had was very quiet (it faced a court surrounded with flats). A nice feature was the french balcony. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well. The bathroom is nicely designed, and the shower has a very good water pressure. I also enjoyed the tasteful interior design. ceiling lights by Tom Dixon, Zettel'z by Ingo Maurer and the turquoise Egg Chairs by Arne Jacobson (if you ever consider of getting rid of one of them please let me know!!!). Furthermore the hotel has a terrace where you can sit in the sunshine and enjoy your coffee or drink. To finish I'd also like to mention the staff, everybody was extremely kind and helpful to us and made sure we had a great time. So I would like to recommend this hotel to anyone who considers staying in Cologne!

Room Tip: If you like to sleep with an open window rooms facing the inner court might be more quiet than those...

A well designed modern hotel with a nice atmosphere. The bar area is a pleasant place for a drink in the evenings and the main shopping streets are 10 minutes by foot.
The rooms are small but perfectly adequate and very clean.

The room has no telephone in the room (but who cares? as many people use HP, even for wake-up alarms).. Clean, comfortable, spacious enough, free wi-fi.. Stayed for 2 nights, and it was 1 of the hotels that we liked very much during our summer vacation this year. Staffs were friendly & helpful, and it was only a walking distance (if i recall it was ~ 5mins.. no more than 10) to the nearest subway station. Personally, would consider staying here again.

Stayed here for two nights by myself and was very impressed.
Easily accessible from the city centre, with Severinstraße U-Bahn station only a couple of minutes walk away.
The main reception areas are comfortable, with modern and abstract designs.
The rooms are basic, such as no kettle or wardrobe - just a couple of strategically placed coat hangers, however it is spotlessly clean and well designed with additions of air-conditioning, towels and complimentary liquid soap.
There's free wifi over the whole hotel, but a new code needs to be obtained every day from reception.
No complaints over the breakfast, unlimited choice of german and continental options at a reasonable price.
There's also a bar that offers a wide variety of drinks and cocktails as well as hot and cold snacks, with nearby decked outdoor area, however it does overlook a three lane crossroad.
Staff very approachable and friendly and adaptable to most languages.
Looking into this brand, it appears there are several of these hotels popping up all over Europe, and this will be my first choice from now on when travelling by myself.

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.
