Recent reviews

Good 6.8 From 257 reviews

Fair 4.0
Very old property in desperate need of modernising. Room was extremely hot and pillows uncomfortable. The price we paid was definitely not for a budget hotel, yet the facilities reflected that. The breakfast was adequate, but could have done with a wider selection.
Mower, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Short family trip for the Markets so spent little time in the hotel. The main issue was the very thin duvets and pillows but we managed for the 2 nights we were there. Also there was no kettle and tea and coffee which is unusual as every other hotel has supplied these. The breakfast was fine and the dining room and hotel and bedrooms clean . Easy enough to walk to the Markets and the Cathedral. Taxi back to the train station very reasonable. Would probably upgrade hotel if visited Cologne again but it was a budget one so can't expect miracles.

Short walk to xmas market in altstadt and access to tram network which made getting around easy. Our main reason is for market access

A great choice in Koln

Adrian, gb2 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Hotel is part of an old building adapted to be a boutique hotel. Rooms are very small. There is no air conditioner. It is located near the marketplace and the Rhine river. Public transportation and attractions are at walking distance. Overall, it is okay for a short stay.
