Reviewed 22 September 2013

it's a very good, clean and comfortable place to stay, but if you have any problems with stairs, or heavy luggage, than it's a not a good option because there is no elevator.
we were traveling by car, and since the hotel doesn't have a parking lot, parking was quite a trouble in the area.

You really get value for what you are paying for. This was a nice place with no frills, the bed was good and everything clean. The rooms are smaller then some average hotels but if you aren't there much then what does it matter? We had checked in late, and did it via the lobby phone. Everything worked out fine. Check out is a bit earlier than other hotels as well, but if you have stuff to do then it's not a big deal.

Room Tip: We had room 13 which was in the Roof and quite hot during that heatwave. Room was quite nice with it...

Do not expect the Ritz when staying at this establishment as you will have only paid a budget price The accommodation meets all the basic requirements for a short stay but would suggest an en--suite room in order to avoid a walk down the corridor;Yes the rooms are small but all appliances were up to scratch including a hot shower,firm bed,fruit bowl and wine.A room on the TOP FLOOR is preferable due to comings and goings thro the night making it noisy at times.Breakfast is adequate and you can save money by booking directly with the hotel.Location is ok either UBARN or a 20 minute walk to the DOM and from there only one stop to the exhibition centre across the Reine.

Room Tip: Surprise Surprise there is no sound proofing in this hotel in fact quit thin walls so would suggest...

I was looking for last minute accommodation in Cologne and found City Hotel Storch. The hotel has a good location near the city center and the U-bahn is just at the end of the street. There is no 24/7 staff at the reception desk. You are provided with a key to the main entrance. The room was basic but clean. Two comfortable beds, a TV and a private bathroom with shower an toilet. It was good value and would recommend this hotel when you just need a place to sleep at a low price.

The Cityhotel Storch is a budget hotel which really worths the money.
I spent 2 nights there, and I felt at ease and got all I needed.
I arrived around 11am and my room was ready. The receptionist explained me about the hotel facilities and provided a city guide pointing out all the sights of interest in town and advised me where to enjoy some amazing German food! The hotel is just 15 minutes walking to the Dom. It is plenty of restaurants nearby, both international and German cuisine. The room was tiny but clean and cosy. The room had TV, en suite with soap and shower gel.
Free Internet wi fi connection worked perfectly for the whole stay.
An excellent continental breakfast, with a very good selection of cured meat and chease. Good coffee machine.
After having checked out I stored my luggage and came back around 5pm, and I still had the chance to use their wi fi connection.
I recommend the Cityhotel Storch. Obviously it is not a luxury hotel, but for the money they charge it is definetely the best option in town and they really do an excellent job.

Stayed here as a solo female traveler in a single the room. The room is tiny, this wasn't a problem for me but be aware that it is very small. The bathroom is private and clean. The linen is in serious need of being replaced. Neighbours were a bit noisy. Hotel is a 2km walk from the Dom / HBF so a little far but not a huge problem. Thought this was a touch pricey but then Cologne is an expensive city.

The good:- the price was around Eur55 incl breakfast. The receptionist spoke English well enough.
The room was a good size. My bed was very comfortable. I did not hear any noise from either the street, nor from other guests.

The not-so-good:- The location is OK, though a good 15 minutes walk to the Dom, so this is Ok if you aren’t carrying anything, or if you only do it once per day. If you plan on walking around the city then you need to add your to/from hotel part into the mix. As the crow flies, the distance is not too far, but the U Bahn isn’t direct, so one change is required (only a minor inconvenience). Also, there’s nowhere to leave your luggage, so we left ours at the Station (5 Euro’s for up to 24 hours). As others have said, there might not be anyone on reception at some times, so if you have questions, best ask them all when you check in :-)
