Here are my biggest issues with Hotel Drei Kronen:
I. Middle of tourist traps
II. Highly overpriced surrounding restaurants and entertainment.
III. Nearly non-functioning WIFI.
IV. I also had a small problem with the staff being unable to understand my English accent in German or English, but it was easily resolved.
V. Tiny bathroom, even for a German hotel.
The hotel itself is nice and has a wonderful view of the Rhein. It is perfectly located to visit the Kölner Dom and isn't far from the Hauptbahnhof. That being said, if you want an authentic German experience this isn't your place. If you don't care much about the vacation giving you a real feel for German culture but just want to get to the sites quickly and cheaply, this is your hotel. I heard nearly as many people speaking in English or French as I did German, but if you don't mind being in a tourist trap, this is your place.More
