Double room, super close to the Xmas markets. The staff were so friendly and helpful, little touches like Xmas biscuits and refreshments available when we got back in the afternoon made it feel like we were staying at a friend's house. Excellent selection for breakfast with eggs cooked to order. If you need a comfy friendly place to stay near...

Located next to the town hall it was the perfect base to explore Cologne and soak in all the christmas market atmosphere. The staff couldn't be more helpful from being friendly to recommending restaurants and must-see/do sights. Definately recommend, you will not be disappointed.

We stayed for 3 nights to visit the Christmas markets in December. The location was perfect, within walking distance of several markets and the cathedral. The hotel is small which meant the service was personal. Décor is modern and clean and the beds were very comfortable. Continental breakfast was amazing and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Complementary tea...

We have just returned from a five night stay at this delightful hotel in Cologne. It was conveniently located just up the steps from the Alte Markt where there was a large Christmas Market. There were several good restaurants nearby as well. The hotel is small and has 8 rooms - ours was comfortable although not large. The breakfasts were...
