We booked late and couldn't get into our first choice but this small 3star hotel was a good find and we would recommend it. It is a short 5 min walk from Koln train station which is itself only 4 stations from the airport. The hotel is very well situated for a short walk through the station for Cologne Cathedral, the opera house, the concert hall, pick up for bus tours and easy access to the Christmas Markets. It is also close to the main shopping areas and the river. Plenty of places to eat nearby. There is also a taxi rank opposite the hotel which was handy. The staff are friendly and helpful (especially the waitress at breakfast). The breakfast was varied and kept well stocked up. All facilities were clean. The only reason we didn't give it five stars was that despite asking twice for someone to fix the radiator in the bathroom, nothing was done and the bathroom was particularly cold given the time of year. However, it was good value for money.
