      very good price for inner-city location; very friendly and helpful staff - I had to leave early and thus missed out on b/fast, but staff prepared a "lunchbag" for me to enjoy, breadrools, fruit, pastries and yogurt during my train trip instead! Greatly appreciated

      Great little hotel....tucked away just off the city centre but easily 5 minute walk to the Dom. Great staff, lovely breakfast, clean. all you could wish for on a weekend break.

      Rooms need air con......although staff found us a fan which really helped.

      Breakfast , free wi-fi , smiling employees.

      5-star pricing for a 3-star room comfort, my conception was totally different when I checked on the internet. So there is a difference between reality and virtual reality.

      Breakfast was very good. It is convenient for the main railway station.

      Room was outdated and noisy and bore little relationship to the room photos on their website.

      Beautifully designed modestly scaled well located hotel. I sprang for the extra comfort room and it was amazing: a gorgeous, large room (four large windows) with a comfy double bed and generous, intelligent open closet behind it, and lovely slate shower room. There was space for a full table and nice chairs. It was a real luxury to be able to spread out. Was sorry to be making such short use of the room. Breakfast in the common room was fine - perfectly decent spread, nice room to eat in. Staff were very courteous and helpful. Location is good - short walk to station, near a couple of gorgeous churches (St Ursula, St Maria Himmelfahrt ) I wouldn't perhaps otherwise have visited.

      The view from the windows wasn't the obvious picturesque - a slip road and the steel chimneys of Deutsche Post) but actually that kind of made it more real and oddly cute, and anyway, I could see the spires of the cathedral, which I couldn't at the Dom hotel! The plug in the sink was jammed but that can happen anywhere. I will try and stay here next time I'm in Cologne

      not far away from train station, only 6-7min walk.

      it's noisy at night if your room windows faced to street.

      Everything was very good - location, stuff, services, breakfast. I would recommend this hotel for sure.

      Staff was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was excellent. My room (standard) looked out over the central "patio", so even though it was a bit short on natural light inside, it was nice and quiet.

      not much light in the room; small window, largely blocked by a painting.

      The staff was friendly. We had a comfort double room which was very spacious and clean. It was air conditioned and had ample lighting. There was plently of natural light coming in from the large windows, but heavy curtains to close at night to keep out the morning light for sleeping in. The bathroom was big and clean, and the bed was comfortable. We could hear the trains when the window were open, but didn't notice them with the windows closed and they didn't keep us from sleeping. It was more than I was expecting and I would recommend it to everyone.

      Close to Cologne centre and very easy to get to from Cologne train station. Free Wifi.

      The room were dirty and very poorly equiped for the price paid. They were old fashioned and cheaply refurbished. Noisey street outside.
