B&B Hotel Koeln-Frechen
Ranked #2 of 9 Hotels in Frechen
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

Not at all worth the price. We've stayed at much nicer places for the same rate that this place offered.

Hotel has a decent amount of free open air parking spaces.

Rooms are uncomfortably cheap and tacky. There's only one single power outlet in the room; the only other one is in the entry way next to the door - a completely useless place unless you're a maid's Hoover.

You have to hassle paying a deposit at reception just to get a hair dryer.

Wi-Fi is strange and requires assistance from the front desk (everyone in our travel party experienced this); you have to log on with one browser (e.g. Firefox) but then use a different browser (e.g. Chrome) for access. Wi-Fi works well, though, once you get it working, however, it only works with one device; this hotel needs to move into present day, where business travelers have smart phones and tablets.

Beds are firm but acceptable. Not all rooms have phones and those that do don't seem to work, as our travel party couldn't call each other.

We all felt dirty at this hotel and couldn't wait to get out. Might be OK if you're a teenager or if you make porn movies, but I would never stay there again.

A reasonable hotel on the outskirts of Cologne, about 15 stops on the tram from Frechen station (about 10/15 mins walk from hotel) into Nuemarkt station in the centre of Cologne. Not much close by apart from a burger king next door & department store opposite, Mcdonalds & Subway within walking distance also. Probably a good spot to stay if you are driving, and want to stay on the outside of Cologne, particularly wise when there is a trade fair on (as the hotel prices sky rocket). Couldn't fault it and yes would use it again for business travel.

The top floor of this hotel is all family rooms, and they are great! You walk into a room with a queen size bed, and up the stairs is a balcony with 2 long twin size beds. Yes, there is a safety gate at the top. Good mattress, good a/c, free parking, easy location, fast free wifi. Simple hotel but clean and excellent value.

We stayed in a family room, which comfortably sleeps 4 persons. The room is actually over two floors, and offered plenty of room for a quick stop over.

The bathroom was a bit small - but practical.

The hotel looks very tired on the outside - and the area around the hotel is not very inspiring, however it is close to the motorway (but you don't hear it) and it is close to the shops in the local area.

Breakfast is well worth the extra 7.5€ per adult. Plenty fresh breads, cereals, boiled eggs, yoghurts, tea, coffee etc... no bacon/sausages,. but for that price we didn't expect it.

No frills - but value for money.

Our experience of this hotel would have been OK had it not been for the fact that although the hotel advertises it's rooms as non-smoking most of them are actually allocated as smoking rooms. We booked a non smoking room and were not informed at any point that our room was smoking. By the time we arrived there were no non-smoking rooms left. The room smelt disgusting and we left feeling extremely ill. On a more positive note the breakfast was good. The beds were rather uncomfortable compared to most hotels we have stayed in too. After having politely written to the hotel about the smoking issue we have got nowhere so I cannot recommend this hotel unless you are a smoker. Very behind the times!

The hotel is situated well for a trip into Koln or to Phantasialand. 15 min drive to phantasialand. it is clean, plenty of parking. Family room was perfect. its a split level room with a double bed (quite hard) and then a small stairs up to a room (not private) - open with balcony bars with 2 double beds. We had 2 15 year olds, and it was perfect to give them their own spot but still keep an eye on them. There is no privacy for the adults. Bathroom is very tiny but clean. linens clean. breakfast buffet good qua price quality - fresh bread, eggs, yogurt, coffee, milk and all stuff to go on the bread. no fruit or luxury but for 6,90euro it is good. the reception staff (30/7 night) was extremely friendly and helped us because there was only smoking rooms left (we requested non and didn't get their email in time) but 1 smelled worse - so we took the other and it wasn't so bad. all in all i would choose this chain again for a simple overnight. oh and free wifi!
