I arrived in Cologne at the Hauptbahnhof - the hotel is an easy 10 minute walk from the station. Check in was straightforward, and the room (a single) was comfortable and spacious. The room was quiet, but I was on the quiet side of the hotel, away from the main road. The continental breakfast was good, although there wasn't a...

Stayed here to go to some xmas markets. Location is fab- a short walk to the Cathedral and centre of town. Couldn't hear the traffic/ people/ trains at all from my room which is particularly good at night time. Staff were helpful and hotel was well cleaned and kept to a high standard. If I visited cologne again I'd certainly...

Great little hotel near to the train station. There are bars and takeaways nearby and very accessible. Decent breakfast included in the price and the rooms very clean and modern. The Haribo on the pillars was a nice touch! I left the 'do not disturb' sign on the door when I went out and on my return a bag of...

We stayed for two nights in October, travelling from England to watch football. We flew into Dusseldorf and got the train down to Cologne, so the location of the hotel was perfect for us just behind the station. It was also a short walk into the City center to the main attractions & bars, which was handy. We traveled as...

I really cannot understand any positive comment about this poor hotel whose the only good thing is the position, so near the train station. Maybe the convenient price could also be of interest. However it offers an absolutely unpleasant experience. Small single room, low quality furniture, no maintenance, no service. The breakfast is not bad. The personnel perfectly integrated with...

We have used this hotel a number of times and it retains its good standard. It is very convenient for arrivals by train, being just a 5 minute walk from the Hauptbahnhof and 10 minutes walk from the start of the old city. They obviously keep records of previous guest stays because on arrival this time we were greeted with...
