I booked this hotel for the second time now and I am still very happy with the decision. It is the optimal hotel for those who travel on a tight budget. The Hotel Leonet is BY FAR the cheapest hotel I could find anywhere close to Cologne city center and its location is its biggest plus. It is located between the student party mile "Zuelpicherplatz/Zuelpicherstrasse" (10 min. walking distance) and "Rudolfplatz" (5 min. walking distance) with its medieval gate Hahnentorburg. The major travelling hub in Cologne called "Neumarkt" is also very close (15 min. walking distance) and from there most subways, trams, and many buses depart. Wherever you want to go in the city, you can start from Neumarkt. The major shopping area around Schildergasse also starts at Neumarkt. Cologne Cathedral, Roman-Germanic Museum (history), Walraff-Richartz Museum (art), Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum (culture), the old city hall, and various romanesque churches are about 20-40 min. walking distance. Thus, the Hotel Leonet is located in the heart of the city!
The hotel is clean and the staff has always been extremely friendly and accomodating. The rooms have everything that is necessary but they are small and NOT LUXURIOUS. I read a couple complained about the hotel after spending their honeymoon there. This is not a hotel for a honeymoon but for someone who wants a cheap vacation! The hotel has free WiFi and a free breakfast, which is decent but I admit I have eaten better. But hey, its FREE.
