We loved the location - centrally located near the cathedral, Rhine, and many restaurants, shops, and pedestrian areas. It was an easy walk of about 10 min from the train station. The breakfast was terrific with a variety of homemade and carefully prepared foods. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A great value.

What a gem - Fantastic hotel!
The hotel is immaculately maintained and they keep everything absolutely impeccable. The rooms are very comfortable and they offer a breakfast that rivals the most expensive hotels out there. It may not be the most grandiose hotel but the hosts will strive to provide a wonderful experience in Cologne. Can't recommend enough.
