Needs a few more things for a four star hotel

Posted Dec 5, 2016

Good base for City

Rooms at the back are quieter with view of park. Good parking. Easy bus and tram access to city centre.

Quiet residential area of Cologne but ideal for me

Posted May 27, 2016 on Hotels
Quiet residential area of Cologne but ideal for me as my daughter lives a couple blocks nearby. I had figured this wouldn't be an interesting area, but if you like to walk there is an extensive commercial district with lots of restaurants a few blocks down Dürener Straße. Also the lake and park in the back made for a nice view out of the room window. There are tram and bus stops a block away to get into the Köln city center. Free WiFi worked well which is a blessing compared to other hotels I have stayed at in Germany. Had a problem initially with my MacBook not connecting but then it dawned on me that I had static DNS settings configured and once I removed those the WiFi logon worked fine. The room itself was very nice with comfortable bed and lots of pillows. The bathroom was clean and in great condition. Water pressure was good as well.

Hotel out of city-green area.

Posted Apr 30, 2016
Pros: Area where we wanted to be
Cons: Bigger room
Location: Close to University and easy access to city via tram.
Chose this hotel as close to University. Clean and pleasant though room was quite small. Good breakfast though at 18 Euros quite expensive.
