It's a great new hotel. I liked everything about it. EXCEPT one thing. The shower stall had a smell of mold. The shower and the restroom were impeccably clean, so I think the smell was coming from the drain.

My room had two single beds. The TV was tiny and old but it had cable with a number of channels in English (I barely watched TV). It was quiet and pleasant but far from luxurious. Bathroom was really small. Fairly typical of older European hotels. This one was built about 100 years ago. Nice staff, spoke English. Good value for the money. Breakfast was good too but not included in my room rate.
Location across the Messe Deutz train station is perfect. Number of restaurants nearby or you can walk across the Rhein and be at the cathedral in about 15 minutes.

"Good, basic, cheap accomodation in a good location."
I stayed in the hostel for a gig at the Lanxess arena. It is a 5 min walk from there so is a great location if you're going to the arena. The train station is opposite the hostel so it's easy to get to.
The city centre is the next train stop away or a 15 minute walk over a bridge across the Rhine.
The room was basic but clean and had a private toilet and shower, which for a hostel, is good. Breakfast is provided. Nothing fancy but does the job.
When I arrived I asked to change to a smaller room as a friend had cancelled and they were happy to do this and only charge for the small room. There is a small shop in reception which sells drinks and snacks. The staff speak English which was helpful.
