My sister and I stayed at this hotel for two nights...and felt very lucky. It is in a bit of a dreary area, but only two blocks to the Rhine and about four to the train station and, just beyond, the Cathedral and museums. A very easy flat walk! The hotel was sold out both nights...lots of Europeans, and it...

About 10~15 minutes walk from Köln Hauptbahnhof. Low-profile exterior in a quiet alley. Kind stuff at the front desk. The room is clean and comfortable. No place to plug the adapter near the desk. Fantastic breakfast.

Friendly reception, nice spacious room for a city hotel. Clean, modern and a private garage! But there is some room for improvement: only German TV channels and a very poor, slow and unstable Wifi connection.

I booked the hotel for a short city break in Cologne and one of the main reasons has been its design - i wasnt impressed so much. The area in the lobby, coridors and entries in front of the rooms are fine, but I didnt find the room "design" at all. I loved the bathroom, it was pretty nice, but...

I stayed two nights at the Hotel Santo. The single room I had was small, but perfect for me. The room included many amenities, such as a mini-bar, TV a desk, good lighting and a large bathroom. The hotel's style is very modern. The breakfast is fully stocked with a wide variety of fresh foods and is excellent. I stayed...

We had stayed here before about 4 years ago and loved it and were somewhat puzzled at some negative reviews. We ignored these and we were glad we did. We arrived early and despite being 4 hours before official check in time, the staff promptly offered to free up a room as my wife was feeling ill, this was so...

After reading the latest review on trip advisor, I was a little aprehensive about staying here. However, I can honestly say that the hotel was very good. The rooms extremely clean and well furnished. The bathroom was plenty big enough with rails for the towels and a big shower. One reviewer said that there was no air conditioning in the...

I chose this hotel according to the reviews on tripadvisor, but i was very disappointed. The room was very impersonal and cold. I have never been in such a cold room before. I also understood from the reviews that the hotel was close to the city center, but it took about 20 min. to walk and to drive to the...
