Hotels for me are, generally, just somewhere to sleep when I am away from home. I prefer to spend most of my time taking in the wonders of the cities I visit, and for this purpose the Rhein Hotel St. Martin was perfect for my needs.
Located just a few minutes walk from the main train station in Cologne, the hotel is situated along the banks of the river, and offers some excellent views from the room windows. The staff were extremely helpful and spoke some fantastic conversational English. They even put up with me trying out my rather rusty Standard Grade German with them.
On the down sides, the choice for breakfast was rather limited and the close proximity to a large number of bars and restaurants made for a great deal of noise later at night. I, however, took this to be an excellent excuse to head out and join in with a few glasses of Kolsch!
On the up side, there is also a vending machine on the first floor offering beer and wine, as well as a selection of chocolate and soft drinks.
Next time I head to Cologne, I will check the availability of the rooms at this hotel above any other in the area.
