This hotel is a gem! Perfectly located in the old part of Cologne, a short walk via the main train station to the Cathedral and a multitude of Christmas markets. We stayed in room 400 on the top floor, accessed by lift, which the affable host, Christian, assured us was the best room. It has been recently redecorated with taste and flair. Someone has had fun accessorising this room. The bed is huge and comfortable. There are easy chairs, a good-sized wardrobe and the lighting is good too. The bathroom has a shower and separate bath and the bath is to die for. Our water bill would rocket if I had one of these at home. It's double headed and super comfortable for soothing away the stresses and strains of life or just from exploring Cologne. All fixtures and fittings are top quality.

Breakfast served downstairs is a feast of delights. Meats & cheeses, a superb selection of breads and lots of other additions; subtly spiced lentil salad and various tapas-type temptations. The hotel caters easily and willingly for vegetarians and vegans. It looked as though someone had put lots of effort into preparing such an extensive selection.

Although the hotel room did not have much of a view, the road was surprisingly quiet and we (used to being in a quiet village) slept soundly, even with the windows open.

I would definitely come here again. Nothing was too much trouble for Christian and colleagues.

Small hotel with small entrance - nearby a more visible hotel. Nice room for a stay, but quite small (room and bathroom), however very clean. Confortable bed. Nice breakfast with large choices. Friendly staff. Very competitive price.

Stayed one night in cologne and it was a good value for the location which included a nice breakfast and parking right across the street for 10 euros. We checked out at 9 but we're able to leave our car there till 12:30 which was perfect since we had to leave at noon. Room and bathroom were nicely decorated and a good size for 2. Staff was friendly as well.

I like a clean hotel with a comfy bed. I like a hotel with a good breakfast. I like a hotel that can offer advice if you need it, like if your suitcase gets lost by your airline.
I like Hotel Domstern.

Stayed here at the end of November 2016 for the Xmas Markets. A gorgeous hotel, with very friendly staff. The place was spotless, beautiful decor and really close to the cathedral, a 5-10 min walk. Close to station too, so we got the train with great ease from the airport and walked 5-10 mins to hotel.
Breakfast was lovely too. I would stay again
