Hotel was close to the Dom, had all we needed

Posted Mar 30, 2017
Being travelers from the US, we understood the room would likely be small... we were correct... That said, the beds were comfortable, bathroom, while small, was remodeled nicely, good water pressure and hot water. Breakfast in the hotel every morning was wonderful... great coffee, breads were outstanding. We didn't "want" for anything and enjoyed the international experience. The front desk staff was great, taking time to discuss whatever we asked at any time. The hotel location is great! Cabs were available just a block away, so was the train station. The cathedral is just around the corner and doesn't disappoint. We really enjoyed the local restaurants... like Papa Joe’s Biersalon Klimperkasten, Alter Markt 50-52,Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia Germany 50667 was a favorite... the later evening music and activities were a lot of fun!

Great Location

Posted Mar 5, 2017
Great location to explore city. Rooms clean & Tidy. Staff very nice and helpful. Terrible smell around kitchen area & Hall. Hotel advertised as having access to a pool & sauna 100m away but when asked staff - they didn't know anything about it. They said nearest swimming pool was in Deutz. Please change your advertising regarding this!

Amazing location, small but comfortable room

Posted Mar 2, 2017
Pros: Location, location, location
Cons: Plug in refrigerator. Area rugs near the beds. Lamps near beds.
Location: Downtown Cologne.
The location is the best part about this hotel, about 2 minutes' walk from the train station or cathedral. The room itself was fine and clean, but very cozy. The floors were laminate, which is a little cold on the feet in the morning. Beds and bedding were comfortable. Bathroom clean and well equipped with soft towels. We had an unfortunate room assignment just at the top of the stairs from the lobby, so we heard nighttime conversations of other people. I don't think this would be a problem in other rooms. No lamps near the beds (because of small amount of floor space), so reading at night was difficult.

While the hotel is centrally located (big plus) there are significant drawbacks as well. Very dismissive and even rude staff, unreliable wifi (I never could get the signal to work), and very minimal accommodations. Add to this the paper thin walls and I can confidently say that I'll stay almost anywhere else before staying here again.

FALSE PHOTOS for advertising

Posted Feb 7, 2017 on Hotels
My friend and I took a day to do some shopping all day and have a girls night. We booked this hotel because of the proximity to the train station and the stores we wanted to visit. We also booked this hotel thinking we were booking the room that was advertised in the photo. IT DEFINITELY was NOT what we were expecting. The lobby looks like the photos, but NOT AT ALL what the "Double or twin room" is in the ad. Although the location is good, the room was outdated and smaller than the size of my kitchen. The only thing updated was the bathroom. The keys to the room are still keys and not a modern card entry. The walls/door are thin and you can hear the other people coming in the hallway. I didn't think about the church being so close to the hotel, but it is right out the window and completely forgot that the bells will be ringing for what seems like every hour. We didn't change rooms as we accepted the fact that you get what you pay for and that we were only going to be in the room for a short amount of time to sleep. If you want to stay here, I recommend paying extra for a nicer room or staying somewhere else.
