Clean, friendly, quiet... and they serve an awesome buffet breakfast to get your day started. It's in the center of the action, very close to most points of interest during our 3 day stay - Dome, museums, churches, riverboat trip, train station.

I have been very remiss in not writing a review of this wonderful small hotel. My husband and I stayed in May 2016. The location was fantastic, we were greeted by name when we arrived and the staff went out of their way to help us organise our sight seeing and to book restaurants. The breakfasts were wonderful and being...

The entire hotel is impeccably clean with a tasteful, modern decor. The owners personally run the hotel and are extremely hospitable and accommodating. The delectable, healthy breakfast bounty offers regional foods with a lovely presentation. There is no better location in Cologne for getting around, sightseeing, shopping, etc.

If you want a lot of extras like a bar, restaurant, room service, etc., then go to a 5-star hotel. If you just want a nice room, wonderful staff, and a great location, then stay here. Only possible negative is that due to its central location, you can get some noise from surrounding streets and squares.

Booked this property based on ratings from Tripadviser.com and we were not disappointed. The location was central, rooms clean and tastefully designed, everything works and the overall system was in place to provide a good experience for their guests. As other guests have covered this extensively we will not dwell too much on this. This is not a 5 star...

This is a boutique hotel right next to the Rathaus (Old Town Hall) and a few minutes' walk to the famous Cathedral and the train station, which was the reason I chose it. There are just 8 rooms on 3 floors that are only reachable by stairs (no lift). Ingmar was kind enough to give me the suite on the...

Left my cell phone in the room and the proprietors were nice enough to notify me promptly and send the phone on to my friend in the Czech Republic. Also, the breakfast was really delicious, and the proprietors very friendly. Thanks.

This is a small, beautifully decorated and clean hotel, but what really makes the experience is the people who work there. Ingmar in reception and Marina who provided the wonderful breakfasts daily could not do enough for us. From the moment we arrived and our luggage was taken straight to our rooms, until the moment we left nothing was too...
