Super budget hotel

Posted Feb 20, 2017
Pros: Location. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Exceptional value for money.
Cons: Better wifi. Get rid of the cigarette smoke in some areas.
Location: Located close to the station and within walking distance of Dom, museums and riverside bars and cafes.
Situated in a quiet street a short walk from the main railway station. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rate I was offered included a buffet breakfast, and a room with a toilet and shower which I thought was great value. The room was spacious for a single with a more than adequate wardrobe, table and chair, and television. The room was very clean and serviced every day. The only negatives were the weak wi-fi signal, the smell of cigarette smoke in the corridors and the view from the room window, but for the price and service offered, I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Little gem in central Cologne

Great little family owned hotel. Very friendly and efficient service. Very central location. It feels like home away from home. Excellent breakfast buffet with a very wide and tasty choice of literally everything.

Non-smoking rooms are non existent

Posted Feb 1, 2016
Cons: Non-smoking rooms should not be advertised as it is misleading.
Location: The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the train station and 10 minutes from the cathedral and pedestrian shopping area.
I booked this hotel according to recent reviews and I was terribly disappointed. The hotel is very dark with no natural light entering the building. The first thing I noticed was the smell of smoke at the reception. I booked non-smoking rooms but they are non-existent as the smell of smoke permeated everything. This must not be a popular hotel as there was dust on the bedcovers and in the bathroom vent. On the positive side, the hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast was plentiful and had something for everyone. I would not return though nor recommend this hotel.
