We stayed for one night and really enjoyed the experience. Good deal! The external view reminds you of a hotel from 1980's. However, once you are inside, you will see that it is really nice and modern. The room was nice, the beds (two single) were comfortable and everything was clean. The location was walking distance to the shopping area...

Rooms are fine. Like most European hotels they have only a twin duvet (2 on a double), no sheet and the AC only works minimally. I woke up in a sweat every morning. The staff is friendly though, and I loved the breakfast (25 euro-but typical for such hotels). If you are sightseeing it's a bit far from stuff, but...

This is a very nice hotel. The location is quiet and there is very good access to the tram and subway (just steps from the hotel). Many good restaurants nearby. If you are interested in very good German food and beer, try Kunstbruder which is a 2 minute walk. Another good German restaurant is Paeffgen which is about a 10...

The hotel is located near the center & has spacious, neat and cozy rooms. We loved the bathroom with walk-in shower. The hotel has a big and lovely bar where you can relax. We were in Cologne during Carnaval, but inside the hotel, we were able enjoy the peace and quiet.

Clean rooms with enough space. The distance to shops etc. is very good. Parking expensive, parking in the area is much cheaper. Lot of restaurant in the nearby area. Friendly people working in the hotel.

The hotel is nice, staff friendly and the rooms are clean. They have many power outlets and usb power outlet which is very helpful in charging the phone and working, free internet. It is in the middle of the major shopping area and near the street car and subway station. I do recommend
