This hotel was ideal situated just off the motorway so easy to get to and to explore Koln whilst able to leave the car without paying excessive city parking (but you do have to pay to park). check in was very easy with friendly, polite fluent English speaking staff.
The rooms (we had two booked) were generally clean and they were adjoining which was helpful but not requested (so demonstrates good customer service), but the decor was dated in terms of style and colour. The size of the room was good with a double and single bed in, plus a pull out if required. There was no ac/electronic heating control which made if difficult to regulate the temperature but with a window ajar it was not too noisy. The bathrooms boasted a strong powerful shower with plenty of hot water or bath if desired.
The hotel also supports a nice fitness pool which was available all day, as was the small fitness room (treadmill, bike, cross trainer) and a sauna (open in the evening).
Situated on the west side of Koln, the number 7 tramline runs a minute walk away and will,take you into the centre of Koln within 20mins. Also close by are a number of fast food outlets and situated across the road a couple of supermarkets ideal for daily provisions.
The draw backs to this hotel are the cost of food on the restaurant menu (including the cost of breakfast) and the charge for car parking given that it is barrier controlled, otherwise little more to complain about.
Would probably stay again.
