“Comfortable suburban hotel”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

This hotel was convenient for our party but we would not otherwise have chosen it; it is neither in central Cologne nor near any particular attraction. But it offered comfortable spacious accommodation, a good breakfast and very close proximity to the S-line station on the line into central Cologne. If you have a reason to be here, this is a good choice of hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly.

No major change from the previous reviews.
The hotel is primarily a business hotel with cheaper weekend rates. Hotel has its own garage(extra charge) and there is street parking around the area.

Would recommend the Knippschild restaurant across the street good food and the kitchen stays open late.

What a nice little place to stay in Cologne.. Nothing fancy, nothing too much but good rooms, clean and quiet. The owner is nice as well as almost all his team. The only thing not fun was the waiter for the breakfast. Too serious.. Not smiley at all.. Hardly say a word.. Make you feel like your not welcome contrary to the rest of the staff which are very warmth and welcoming..

The Hotel Uhu is truly a home away from home. Located a quick 15 minute train ride from the Cologne Central Station- the Uhu provides you with a real feel of German life while being quickly and affordably accessible to all the sights of Cologne. The hotel is immaculately clean, had the cheapest and best laundry service I have found in Europe and has a breakfast that is to die for. The hotel staff are beyond nice and go out of their way to help. I speak no German beyond "please," "thank you." "beer" and "tasty" and while I was staying at the Uhu I had temporary crown break. The hotel manager went out of his way to call several dentists in the area until he found one open (on a holiday weekend). He then proceeded to explain my problem to the dentist and made me an appointment for that morning. This is just one example of their amazing service.
I cannot wait to go back to the Uhu this summer!

I have stayed at many hotels in Germany and other places in Europe and this is probably the best. Small (maybe 30-35 rooms), great breakfast, friendly and super staff, and excellent owner. Very quiet. A must stay out of the main stream of the downtown area of Koln. Easy access to anywhere via S-bahn or Tram.

A best kept secret in Koln, Germany is the Uhu Hotel Garni, Dellbrucker Haupstr. 201.
It is removed from the bustle, yet has quick and easy access to the city via trains, trams and buses. It’s a short walk to banks, pharmacies and grocery stores – even a McDonalds. Across the street is another treasure, Knippchild’s Restaurant.

The Uhu has immaculately clean rooms, comfortable, cozy beds, television and Internet. Incredible breakfast choices, sure to accommodate everyone. Friendly, English speaking staff go out of its way to make your stay a memorable experience. Reasonable rates.

What a great find.
Been going to Cologne for the past couple of years and staying at other hotels. This year all hotels seemed to be booked. Found the UHU whilst browsing one day.

We stayed for 3 night which cost about £65 per night including breakfast.
The hotel is a short train ride from the central station on the S18. We were a group of 4 and a return for the day is 10 euros for 4 people. Trains run very frequently all hours of the day. The station at Dellbruck is only a minute away from the hotel.

The rooms are just right with either twin or double beds, wardrobe space, draws and a small desk. There is also a safe in the room which is free. The bathrooms are ok. Towels provided and a hairdryer.

Breakfast was included in our stay and is very good. Lots of bread, cheese, meat and jams. Boiled and scrambled eggs are also on offer.

The staff are very friendly and speak very good english. There is also a computer you can use to access the internet.
The town has a few resteraunts and bars. We only used the bar opposite. They did not speak a lot of English but we ordered beer and wine and we got by.

I would not hesitate to book this hotel again.
