Staff were excellent and welcoming.

Cons: Reading lights by bed.
A fascinating and charming hotel. Room was comfortable but no bedside lights made reading in bed impossible - the room was too dark.

Wonderful location.

Posted Nov 30, 2014
Pros: Location was perfect and as I drove, I loved the idea of having my car just below the hotel.
Cons: If there were a way to help with wi-fi, I would offer it for free. It is a little pricey at €3,00 per hour. Needless to say, I used my phone.
Location: Just a 10-15 minute walk from the Köln cathedral (Dom). Close to restaurants all along the Hohestraße but quiet enough to not hear commotion.
From the check-in, I was in awe. The quality of the underground parking garage to the friendliness of the reception to all the little details. I stayed on the 9th floor where my room could walk directly out onto the balcony for a 360° view of the city of Köln. I was breathless.

No air conditioning

Posted Sep 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
Although we enjoyed our stay, our galleried room on 6th floor had only 1 circular window in the sitting area which would only open 2cm wide. Therefore we had to ask for an electric fan for the upstairs bedroom - which arrived very quickly - as it otherwise would have been far too hot. It was a pity that the window would not open wider as sleeping with a loud fan whirring is never ideal. AirCon might be the answer.

Quiet area, but easy walk to city centre.

Posted Sep 5, 2014
Pros: Good choice for trade fair visitors as a short tram ride from the Messe.
Cons: Pillows were those strange, large, down-filled but very understuffed squares that you get in some German hotels. Like duvets for tiny people.
Location: Surprisingly quiet area given how close it is to city centre. Opposite a large public swimming pool which is open late.
Interesting architecture and characterful rooms with extremely high ceilings, and a separate lounge area. Pleasant garden (unusual in a city hotel) and nice bar (tho pricey).

Modernes Hotel in historischem Gebäude.

Renovierung der Zimmmer dringend erforderlich

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Pros: Originalität im Wasserturm Tiefgarage
Cons: Der helle Teppichboden ist so verschmuddelt, dass es mich angeekelt hat.
Location: Citylage Köln, Standort ist gut
Ich war nur für eine Nacht im Hotel. Wenn es mir gefallen hätte wären es mehrere Tage geworden.

In die Jahre gekommen

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Pros: Architektur.
Eingangshalle beeindruckend, Zimmer sind seit sicherlich einigen Jahren nicht renoviert, da muss etwas passieren. Gut war die Bar und die Leistung des Barkeepers. Eine Dame an der Rezeption ist zu wenig. Man sollte bei gut besuchtem Haus etwas Zeit mitbringen.
