A retro hotel with friendly staff. Nice and clean, great beds. We had booked a room with shared bathroom but decided to upgrade, which was a good decision. The bathroom was newly renovated, and room 13 is very quiet. A very good breakfast is included in the price. The only thing we missed was heating in the bathrooom, which can get cold in winter. Otherwise the heating works very well. Not luxury, but excellent value and great location! I have paid lots more for much worse.

Room tip: We stayed in 13, with its own bathroom.

I stayed one night in a family suite. The location is fantastic - right in the thick of things next to the cathedral and also the Christmas market if you are there at that time of year. Parking might be an issue although there is overnight street parking in front of the hotel and we got very lucky.

The room was interesting with a staircase leading to a slightly pointless upstairs living area, although our 13 year old niece thought it was fantastic. Decent bathroom/shower and no real complaints at all about the place.

The included continental breakfast was also decent enough with cheeses and hams/salamis as well as the usual pastries and juices etc.

The only downside was that when we arrived the front door was closed with a sign ('back in a minute'). It is only because we happen to spot that there was someone inside that we knocked and weren't left waiting outside (in December) for no reason. The lady who checked us in was friendly enough although I was a little put out when she seemed to complaint that we were there earlier (3 minutes; literally) than we had indicated on booking. Given that it was 6pm it is supposed to be a hotel (and therefore 24 hour or at least long reception hours) this was a little galling.

Overall, I'd go back though, especially as it was quite reasonably priced for the location. Wifi was free too.

Staff are great and very helpful with tips for shopping, parking etc, Great location 2 mins from the city centre, easy walking distance. Rooms are basic but good value for the centre of a major city.
We had shared bathroom facilities and these were probably the worst thing about the Hotel.
Breakfast was excellent with a good choice, be aware there is no lift so those who find it difficult walking may have problems on upper floors. Would we say again, yes.

Staff we lovely, very kind, front desk always staffed. Room was basic but clean, nice bathroom. A little cold, could hear othe people talking downstairs (our room was directly above the lobby/reception), also Wifi was provided free but the connection was not strong. Good for our needs (1 night stay). Breakfast was also provided and had good selection. Location was the main reason for staying here, we were at the train station within 5 minutes walk.

Really nice hotel with extremely friendly staff. They took my luggage and looked after it till my room was ready as I arrived very early. The room was basic but very clean, I shared a bathroom and all of the facilities were clean and pleasant enough. Only a 2 minute walk to the station and under 10 minutes to the cathedral. Also the breakfast was amazing so much to choose from and such lovely food. I will stay here again should I come back to cologne.
