We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights to see Christmas markets and travel around the area. The location of this hotel could not have been better for that and access to trains. It was perfect. The people working there were all friendly and attempted to be helpful to us without exception. My biggest complaint was the poor and sometimes...

Great location right around the corner from the train station and cathedral. Easy walking distance to everywhere. Staff were friendly, but there was some difficulty with English when I tried to ask where I could do laundry. Room was comfortable, on the smallish side, but not bad. Good wifi.

We had a triple room which was spacious and very clean, and the bathroom was fantastic. The staff were very helpful, and the breakfasts were excellent. Would recommend as a great central hotel for walking round cologne, everything is very accessible. Decor is traditional and fresh, and overall room felt very luxurious.

I went to Cologne in May 2015 for a business trip, the hotel is very near to the Cologne railway station, a lot of Restaurants beside and near also shopping arcades. The location is really excellent and the breakfast is very superb and the hotel even a little bit small but it is clean and well organize.

The hotel is ridiculously central - about 5 minutes walk from the station, 3 from the cathedral and 2 from the top of one of the main shopping streets. We actually managed to walk past it when we first arrived because we didn't realise quite how central it is ... maps & streetview can only tell you so much :)...

Stayed here again for the Christmas markets. Pleasant and clean family run hotel within walking distance from station. Good standard buffet breakfast. Comfortable room, and adequate bathroom. Perhaps a little dated in decor, but well priced and very central, giving huge choice of locations to eat.

It's strange these days to actually get a single room, even though when I'm on business I always book a single room, I never really get them unless it's in Germany ! So yes, I got a single room, it's pretty small and compact, however it was OK, bed was comfy, it had a very large window even though the...

Went there for an overnight stay. A bit "old fashioned" and am sure it has seen better days. But the people are really friendly, a car park is just app. 100 m away and you really are in the middle of Cologne.

The Konigshof is very close to the Dom, and most of tourist Koln is walkable from here. The bedroom was comfortable, the bar downstairs small and somewhat lifeless. Breakfast was standard hotel German, though at popular times of year it seems that guests end up having to queue to get a seat, which to be fair the hotel deals with...
