I stayed at this hotel mid-Nov. Room is quite big and comfortable. Enjoyed the breakfast hours and also the bar at the hotel as well. The best part of the hotel is its location - nearby Cologne central station and so easily accessible. Considering the kind of guests at the hotel, I suggest to add some international menu (probably some... More

Room is quite big compared to other German hotel rooms. Bed and pillow are so comfy. But the water pressure in the bathroom is so weak.. And the breakfast is too expensive. Overall I would come back if I visit Cologne again.

Very satisfying in most details, the room, the venue, the service etc. Rather expensive though. The food in the bar was exilent, as well as the bar service. Not many different kinds of beers though. The lunch and dinner buffet was good, but not exilent.

I stayed for 4 nights and I just can only say that I had a wonderful stay! Very chic hotel, perfect staff. The only thing that they can improve it's the room service menu... I will come back for sure!

First, the hotel and the service offered is "not bad". At least, some of the staff seem to try their best. The location is not so convenient for business if you use public transport. Cost/performance can be improved. Was not asked if I needed smoking or non-smoking room, found myself at a smoking floor with a terrible tobacco stench. Asked... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel recently while in Cologne for business. Good size room and above average quality for the good price. Excellent location, very helpful service. My only complaint was the wifi which was either slow or not working for the 5 days I was there. It would also log you off after about 30 min.... More

Above average business hotel but don't get a hotel on the front of the building....unless you like sleeping above a major road with SERIOUS noise! When I asked to change rooms I was told there were rooms at the back but I would have to pay more for them. Surely a basic requirement of any hotel is the ability of... More

This is a nice 3.5 star hotel that's in a decent location, allowing you to walk to some of the more popular attractions such as the Cathedral (highly recommend) and the chocolate factory. The breakfast buffet here is quite good and has a nice variety of choices, including all-you-can-drink espresso ;) We overpaid while here on business ($CDN 500/night for... More
