Came here with my wife on a trip around Europe.
Very old looking interior but everything was clean, there was a bit of a stale smell in the corridors but the rooms were fine.
Staff very efficient and friendly. They ask you to leave your key at reception when leaving and there is always someone there to open the door and great you.
The only negative is that there is shared bathrooms. We did know this before booking so wasn't an issue but not everyone's cup of tea.
The positives were location and the breakfast.
About 200 metres away from train and bus stops and 250 metres away from the Dom.
The breakfast was also very very nice. It's continental buffet where you can help yourself to as much cheese, bread, cold meets and condiments as you like.
Due to the breakfast and location would definitely recommend this place, as long as you aren't put off by the shared bathroom.

Stayed: September 2015, travelled as a couple

With only one night in Cologne, I wanted a hotel close to the station. The Brandenburger Hof is 5 minutes walk from the Hbf and only a little further to the Dom. My single room was very comfortable and contained a shower and basin as well as a desk and chair. Wi-fi was free. Toilets were on the same floor, and although small were quite clean. Breakfast was excellent - a smorgasbord with a wide variety of choices. Staff were very friendly and willingly kept my luggage for a few extra hours after I'd checked out. Only downside was being on the third (top) floor and having to carry my (too heavy!) suitcase up three flights of stairs. I'd definitely stay here again.

The only reason I did not rate this hotel excellent is because there is no lift. That's the only negative - everything else is great.
The location is excellent - less than 5 minutes' walking distance from the Hauptbahnof - the central rail station with the central bus station beside it. The Koln Dom is within 10 minutes' walking distance. The hotel is in a quiet side street, excellent for sleeping.
I stayed in a single room with a shared bathroom. The room and bathroom were spotless and comfortable.
The breakfast was sumptuous and the staff very courteous.

Location is perfect for the center, a few minutes walk from the main train station. I had a single room which was small. But for the price in the center of Cologne with breakfast the value was amazing. Room was clean and basic. Hotel looks to be family run and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The wifi worked and the breakfast was nice. I would recommend the hotel to anybody on a budget who wants somewhere central. Hard to find anything to match it.

We stayed here in a triple room for three nights at Easter 2015. Nice quiet, safe hotel with welcoming staff, especially Joe on reception. Room 20 was comfortable, lovely hot showers and good wifi. Great choice for breakfast. Two supermarkets and lovely italian restraunt Rossini in nearby Eigelstein. We thoroughly enjoyed.
