"Nice location, and easy to find...."
I really looked forward to my stay in Cologne. Took the train from Dusseldorf, paid 11,40 euro and it took about 35-40 minutes to the city. From the Cologne main station, I took the metro, and the closest stop to the hotel is the Severinstrasse stop. From here it is about 8-10 minuttes to walk down to the river and the hotel. The room was nice, and it had a small fridge which I used for my drinks and food I bought outside. On the Severinstrasse stop, there is a lot of restaurants, bakeries, small shops all the way to the Chlodwigplatz. I didn't try the breakfast,or other food options in the hotels. The hotel has a great location for walkers and runners. I took a run north, and run back again on the other side of the river. There is a big area on the other side of the river with sport facilities, and also nice grass area for your running. There is a PC in the lobby, and there was no problem with the wifi in the room. I will certainly stay here again !
"A very modern hotel"
Our 'art room' was large, very modern and chic and full of light. Modern art is everywhere and it's a great mixture of minimal design and bright colours. There are a lot of extras that really set the place off like coffee machines, quality bathroom products and a mini bar. Everywhere is clean and the staff are very friendly. The terrace is a great place to have a drink on an evening too overlooking the river and it's not a far walk from the centre of Cologne at all. The breakfast was also really good with lots of variety.
"Didn't care about theft"
Stayed here for the Christmas markets because of the amazing location and previously great stays. The hotel is clean and they are decorated well, but there is no safety for guests. There is no CCTV which works and the staff didn't care about a stolen laptop. To be fair its theft isn't their fault but they failed to ask basic questions about what it looked like, when it was lost ect. It took a call from city police for them to even take the event seriously. I would never stay here again because I don't feel safe and the staff were awful. I would rather pay a little more and stay at Hotel Ernst in future
This is a very good hotel with almost everything one needs for a short trip. Nice bar and restaurant, a good variety on the breakfast menu, parking, and exercise facilities. The staff is great - excellent service. The room spacious, well lit, and very quiet. We chose the Rhine view, which is a bit of a stretch (or, if you stretch, you can see the main river) but very pleasant. Walking to the center of Cologne takes about 10-15 minutes - pleasant stroll along the river. Cab ride back late at night was 10E. I also enjoyed a surprisingly nice sauna where they provide bathrobes, towels, and slippers in a quiet setting - good way to sweat out a cold, damp March day.
