My Wife and I stayed here at the recommendation of friends who had stayed in the summer. As we were arriving after hours so to speak, Jens had emailed us instructions for gaining access, which were simple and to the point. The hotel is friendly, clean ad in an ideal location. Simple things like getting my wife a chair and... More

This is quite a special place. It is in an ideal location in central Koln, but we did not find a problem with street noise, because the pub opposite does not stay open too late.
