There have been negative reviews of this hotel, but we were quite happy with it. We had a standard double with a separate bathroom (not a shower etc in the room with us as others have had). Everything was clean and smart, we were in a quiet area and the room was serviced daily. While 19.50 euros is a bit... More

Nice clean and tidy room. Staff are very helpful. Apartment next-door for the family was not 4* though, it was very tired. Overall good location for markets and river and chocolate museum. Would recommend for hotel only. Oh and by the way glass doors on toilet in room? What's going on there???

Visited Cologne in November for a weekend to see Christmas markets with family. The hotel was clean and comfortable, although we were only there to sleep so cannot rate any other facilities. While hotel was a 10/15 min walk from the Cathedral and main square it was in a good quiet location opposite the chocolate museum, worth a visit! (it... More

The hotel is well located and quiet. Our room was clean, comfortable and a good size. The beds were very comfortable. The shower in our room was separate and excellent, (although the pressure was so high the water leaked under the shower and bathroom doors and into the room). The coffee machine took a while to work out. (My travel... More

Nice location but real odd set up. Small and cramped free standing shower with just a curtain in the middle of the room. No privacy. Hotel has parking for only 25 vehicles, It is tight climb down. Beware.

Hotel Lyskirchen was the nicest place to stay in a surprising seedy area of town, home to numerous gay bars that cater to the 30+ set. The pool is super clean and under-subscribed. The work-out facility is adequate and clean. Hotel staff was nice and unobtrusive.

Good location with walking distance to Old city, Kolner Dom, museums/attractions, brauhause(s) and shopping. Clean with basic amenities, this hotel does not have personality and I would not consider it boutique hotel. Could be good for a short business trip or a stopover. Staff's attitude is just mediocre, not overly pleasant (with exception of one young lady).

The rooms are simple but clean if not a little unusual having the shower and basin in the room itself. But... Curtains don't cover the window edges properly letting in so much light. Tap/faucet on the basin leaked from its base and had to be mopped up regularly. Extractor fan, which ran for too long, is noisy for me (and... More

The location of the hotel is very good - near the city center and the river. The indoor pool seemed nice even though I didn't use it myself. The fitness room is small and basic but it was ok for my excercise purposes. There's nothing wrong with the breakfast but I still felt it was overpriced compared to what was... More
