Bathroom Flooded, intnt does not workPosted May 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
Bathroom flooded and internet come and go constantly, no way to work or have a skype conversation. This hotel went down in the last year.

Excelent location, but above loud bars on weekendsPosted Mar 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
Terrific location! The staff was super friendly and sweet, except the older gentleman who was stiff and unfriendly. The Hotel has a lovely lobby and while older seemed very clean and cozy. When we arrived during the afternoon it was perfect!! The evening got noisy with the bars downstairs but we were on the 4th floor and it was tolerable but annoying. The staff and cleanliness of the Hotel made up for the unfortunate location to the bars. Being so close to downtown and able to walk everywhere we wanted to go was wonderful. Breakfast was typical German fare and was fine.

Great value hotelPosted Mar 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
My second stay here. The staff, as ever, had straightofrward friendliness. They informed me when I arrived that the full breakfast buffet would not be on offer in the morning as there were not many guests in the hotel, but sorted me out with an order for plenty of food regardless! The buffet was on offer the second day and it really is a treat. My room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the Cathedral and main railway station, and maybe a minute's walk from the Rhine.

Excellent, cheerful service.Posted Dec 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was in a great location, very close to the train station and the cathedral. The room was nice, wasn't that big but was a good size for one person and wasn't that noisy even with the bar outside the window. And the check in people were so nice and cheerful and helpful, greeting me with a smile in the mornings and posting my postcards. I would stay here again.

Good hotel - and very nearly a great budget hotelPosted Dec 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
I picked this hotel primarlily because of its location - a 5 minute walk from the main railway station and right by the Rhine. The service in the hotel is good - sure, if you're not used to Germany it may appear a little formal, but there is a genuine warmth to all the staff here. The breakfast is simply superb and well worth getting up a little earlier for to indulge in. I booked a single room and it was a little on the small side - the shower cubicle was a little tight (I am tall and of average build). The carpets could probably do with being replaced relatively soon, and there are no electrical outlets by the beds (critical for those of us who use our smartphones for everything, including as the alarm clock!). But these are minor annoyances. My room was adjacent to a bar, which was rocking to the sound of a party for 11/11 - but hey, this is Cologne, it's an event attached to Karneval, and noise was to be expected (the other night, the bar generated no noise) It may be similar some weekends, however. In summary, this is a good budget choice; it has a couple of minor flaws, but would be a place I return to.

Terrible Wi-FiPosted Dec 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
As a business traveller it was important to me that the Wif-Fi worked. It was really atrocious. It was actually easier to join the network if a neighbouring hotel but of course I had no password. The wi-fi also doesn't support SSL so it's a very hackable (i.e. not secure) connection. When I checked in there was nobody on the desk for about 10 minutes, forcing me to wait with my colleague in a taxi outside. The room itself was OK but there were stains on the carpets and the "suite" consisted of two single beds which was very disappointing. The TV has only German channels. I closed my window before going out because it was cold but when I returned someone had opened it again and the room was freezing. On a plus side, there is a safe and the power and temperature in the shower were excellent.

Nice little hotel with a great location near the train station and in the heart of old Cologne - steps from the river, Dom, restaurants etc. The room is plain but very clean with a good shower and comfortable beds. I was commuting to Dusseldorf each day so it was fine for my needs. They serve a great breakfast buffet each morning. Note - don't count on internet access from your room. Their wifi is useless unless you are sitting in the lobby
