“Helpful Staff, Right in the Middle of the City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

There can be no better located hotel for shopping and site seeing in Koln. Located off the high street, near the old city and close to the trains, it is easy to get anywhere and see anything. The rooms are basic but clean and tidy. The breakfast had a great selection and was accompanied by a wonderful staff person.

Ten minutes walk from the main railway station, the Cathedral, and the river, and right in the middle of the shops. Pleasant modern hotel with very friendly staff. Excellent all-you-can-eat continental breakfast. Rooms slightly noisy so perhaps not ideal for a light sleeper.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

We arrived here after a walk from the central station which isn't that far through the main shopping district. The reception were really helpful and the room we stayed in was on the first floor and was nice. The bathroom was great but the shower head was wierd! The bed was really nice and we enjoyed our room a lot! The wifi didn't work in our room which was a bit of a let down. Apart from that the breakfast was free and had some nice options like yoghurt, bread, coffee, fruit and meat slices. Nice place and people are nice, reception is open 24 hours!

Currently staying at Hotel Engelbertz to visit FIBO Fitness Trade Show and spend a weekend in the city. Due to trade show difficult to find reasonably priced hotel 6 weeks ago but got this hotel through Booking.com for just under £100 a night B&B for 2 people.

Hotel is in the Centre of the city just off one of the main shopping streets. Just 10mins walk from station, river, cathedral, museum. Hotel breakfast is typical continental and plentiful so you can have a hearty start to your day although you will want to leave room for snacks at the numerous cafe/bars nearby. Hotel only provides breakfast but not a problem as you can find excellent restaurants close by.

Hotel is traditional family run establishment but very welcoming to all guests. Room had basic furnishings but the bed is very comfortable and supportive. Telephone and flat screen TV. En suite shower is powerful with plenty of hot water. Must have hit the jackpot with room allocation (473). It's on the top floor - massive double bed, side annex with wardrobe and large bathroom. Balcony overlooking street for the bedroom and another balcony for the bathroom. By far the largest room in the hotel and a joy to stay in. Wifi available for 1€ a day. It's associated with your floor level so good strong signal.
Overall, feel lucky to have chosen this hotel and no complaints. If ever in Cologne again will definitely revisit.

This is a family owned, professionally run hotel.
Stayed here for 4 nights. There are pros and cons. First the pros..... Excellent location. 5 meters to shopping area and 250 meters to Cathedral and max. 400 meters to train station Koln HBF.
The room was 100% tidy and excellent condition. Ditto for bed linen. The wash room was spotless. WI FI was at full speed at all times.
Very nice breakfast. The staff are all there to help.........Mr. Sigurt, Mr. Thoma and Ms. Fira were very helpful. I was at ease knowing well that should I require any assistance, its there.

I did not hear the 'noise' of busy street.

Now the cons..........they should have a 24/7 restaurant,.

To anybody visiting Cologne...........I would recommend this hotel.

The rooms are old, but clean. A little noisy, because are close to the main walking and shopping street.
The holtel is located in a perfect position for city visiting by foot, 10 minutes far from the Cathedral and the main train station, also a very good starting point for the rest city visit.
The staff is gently and ready for any of your need, good brakfast availability.
