          This is the 4th or 5th time I've stayed. The hotel is great for my needs. I go to the bar across the street. They are always super friendly there. And the complimentary breakfast is great. I like the cheeses they serve. I will continue staying here ev time I go to Koln.

          the rooms were clean and the breakfast had a good variety to choose from. the location was only a short walk away from the main sightseeing areas.

          no in room tea and coffee facilities

        • Single

          Hotel gave an overall impression on being unclean. Rooms very small and facilities non existant. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone else.los located between 2 sex shops and this could put other travellers off staying here.

        • Couple
          6.2

          Free breakfast which should come as standard in my opinion.

          Only Hotspot for internet in room which is a waste of money as not an international thing and once you subscibe, you can only use it in that country. Although you could still use the computer in lobby downstairs for free, its not quite the same as relaxing in your room.

          Friendly staff, central location

          Bizarre neighbourhood (two gay sex shops)

        • Couple
          5.0

          Friendly staff, parking, good location on city map but neighborhood is dissapointing: sandwiched between two gay shops with explicit shop- windows demonstrating everything what they have on sale, neighboring streets and houses, let's say, aren't the most picturescue in Cologne.

          It is no-smoking-hotel, but it still smells very much from the past. Gloomy and uncomfortable inside, no proper lightening both in rooms and corridors, really outdated equipment and furniture, there was no renovation for not less than 30 years, no ventilation and ac in rooms. Extremly expensive wi-fi access - 15 eur per 24h. Doesn't meet modern hotel standards. I didn't expect that such a hotel could exist today. Much below my expectations even for a 3-star-hotel. Will never stay here again. Don't recommend to anybody to stay here even for a night.

        • Group of friends
          5.8

          It had secure parking, was open all night and it was clean and cheap.

          It didn't have a proper bar and it is flanked by two gay sex shops in a what appears to be the gay district of cologne and was quite a distance from the main centre of cologne. Most of the above may be ok for the majority of visitors, but it didn't suit our group

        • Family with children
          6.6

          We liked a location of the hotel , warm rooms and kind stuff.Food on breakfast.

          We didn't like that elevator was broken for 2 or 3 days.

        • Single
          8.2

          Exceptionally good value. It was a comfortable place to stay and included an excellent buffet breakfast. The decor was interesting!

          Beware when entering the lift!

        • Single

          Avoid rooms on main street because of noise ...

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          Good price, breakfast was nice. Very friendly staff. Close to shopping area and even on walking distance from the central station.

          Small room, bit noisy. Shower with dodgy curtain.

        • Group of friends
          5.8

          Nice room size

          Misleading information about the internet, there is no free wifi

        • Couple
          6.2

          Good price, friendly staff and 5 minutes walk from the center where all the resto and pubs are.

          What I didn't see in any of the reviews, is that the hotel is placed between two (brightly advertised) 'Gay Sex Centers.' While this is not a bad thing, younger children might have a problem with the store front windows and the displays therein.

        • Single
          7.4

          Clean and quiet, centrally located, supportive staff

          The room was above the garbage yard

        • Single
          9.6

          THe rooms were clean and comfortable. Great location and price.

          It was sandwiched between two gay sex shops. This was concerning to me at first, even though I am very tolerable. But the neighborhood was great and quiet.
