“To avoid”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

Staff is OK.
Place is far from town center
Room dirty (especially the carpet and the bathroom), and particularly small.
Cannot get the wifi signal once in the bedroom.
Good bed.
Nice, simple and warm furniture.
Efficient shower, but Italian (with smelly curtain) style.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

I stayed here for work two nights in August. The hotel is modern and clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere and therefore you feel relaxed when you are there.
The rooms were spacious and many had a balcony so you could enjoy some outside space too. Generally very quiet, even with the windows open. I slept very well here, which is unusual when I travel with work.
Breakfast was good with a decent selection to choose from. Did not eat dinner here but a collegue did and she said it was very good. Nice patio outside for drinks which were incredibly reasonable (unlike the rip off in some hotel chains)
The hotel is outside of Cologne but the transport links are good. The town you are in has some very nice restaurants on the Rhine.
Only things to note with this hotel - there is no air conditioning. It was warm when I was there and I slept very well with the window open and the hotel provided a fan. Not sure however if it was very hot? Also the toiletteries provided are not good. Pack your own!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2006

We do a Cologne trip every year during X-mass period.
We traveld to Coogne on a Mercedes vito bus, brand new.
So we took an option for a hotel with a safe parking. Begardenhof was the right hotel on the right place.
It is a very clean (it's new) hotel.
Easy acces from the highway.
It is located immediately besides the railway station.
This brings you cheap in the Cologne town center in about 15 minutes.
You have to pay for parking but on the other side of the street there is an unguarded, but safe parking lot.
As it is a quiet town, it is also safe to park your car here.
Rooms were perfect, clean, modern style, quiet.
Restaurant give a standard buffet.
For dinner, prices were very atractive and they serve a good meal.
No great quisine, but you don't eat 3-star menu at home do you?
After all, we certainly go back to the Begardenhof.
In fact: is is a very good choice.

  • Liked — Modern, clean and silent rooms
  • Tips/Secrets — Use the free parking lot at the other side of the street.
