This property is quite well located, near the cathedral and has a ton of places to eat at nearby also. BAsement parking is available and its easily accessible from the highway making it a comfortable base to get into cologne. Comfortable beds and overall very functional!

We have been there five days during the fair. The price is good considering the period (150/single 170/double breakfast excluded 7,5€/person - overpriced). The location is good, tram for fair very close than 2/3 stops, walking distance to restaurants, dom and pedonal area. Rooms freshly renovated and clean

what I LIKED/LOVED: - opportunity to use the spa in the sister hotel (about 15 minutes walking), daily from 9 to 24 hrs; do not forget to pack some slippers + towel to wear in spa; spa is FKK, you do not need swimming suit - the location - near to the city centre. great for sightseeing and shopping -...

Location and breakfast are not bad for such hotel level. Shopping area is at hand. Mindful personnel. But room space is limited, accommodation with children is uncomfortable, air conditioning is out of proper service.

Stayed in this hotel for one night with my wife and daughter. it was important for us that the hotel was a walking distance from the Dome and the main shopping area, had parking facilities and was able to accommodate 3 persons at reasonable price. I think we got all the things we needed. As a bonus, I would add...

Nice small hotel in the old town of Cologne. Clean and modern rooms with good beds. We stayed in a room for 3 people. A double bed and a single (proper) bed. The room wasn't very large but perfect for one night. Public transport nearby and walking distance to the Dome and the Lanxess Arena and shopping areas. No airconditioning....

I wouldn't take my family there, it's a business trip hotel in character. rooms are small, but that's Europe... Other than that, clean & tidy, nice furniture, quiet, nice breakfast. Good service. 10 min from the central train station and cathedral. Price goes up when there is a conference nearby (every couple of weeks). Going to Dusseldorf takes about 45...

Located within walking distance of city center and the river, this hotel served our needs very well. Below ground parking for a fee served our automobile concerns. The room was nicely appointed and the bath was very modern and convenient. The amazing feature was the free use of the other Hotel Mauritius' Spa just a short tram ride away. This...
