"Over priced and not nice at all"
From the booking site Hotels.com this hotel looked great and everything seemed to be just great. I booked a room with a bath tub as that was really desired after one week skiing and 10 hours driving. The room I got was very tiny and only had a shower. I asked the receptionist to change it for me as I had booked one with bath tub. She actually asked me to prove that statement! She reluctantly gave me another room, making it very clear that this room was a double room but she would let me have it for the same price. I find it hard to belive that my new room was a double room, why only one towel and one glass' And a quite small bed' The room was very old style and quite small. A tiny little soap and a small bottle of shampoo plus a coffee machine was all it contained. The remote control for the TV did not work. So much for relaxing in bed with TV. Wifi is supposed to be free, but the free version is so slow that you can not read the news on internet. And much less work! If you need proper internet, it is another 10 euros, in 2017! Breakfast is 20 euros no way worth it. Parking in a very narrow underground celler is 18 euros. Most 3 star hotels I have stayed in is better than this one. They claim to be a 4 star hotel. Maybe decades ago. The only good thing about this hotel is the location. I would not stay there again even if I goy it for free.
"3 night Christmas stay"
Located right near the Rhine river, you are a 10 min stroll into the main centre of cologne. Hotel is located on a quiet little road so no noise. Staff great, speak perfect English and always friendly. Rooms decent size, huge window that opens up fully, slight view of the Rhine from window too. Pool is good size and normally quiet, only slight negative is they want you to pay a few euros to turn the sauna on, obviously if someone else has paid before you are ok, if not you have to pay and wait 15 mins for it to heat up. Just seems a little cheap really in my opinion. Recommended for business or social stay.
"Nice Hotel close to city center"
Nice accomodation with parking and swimming pool. Breakfast is very good. Comfortable rooms. In 5 minutes walk you are in the center and in the middle of the shopping area. One bad thing is the wifi, not free of charge...
We had a really enjoyable stay at the Lyskirchen. The location is excellent. A 2 minute walk to the banks of the Rhine cant be bad. All the major areas can be reached easily after a pleasant stroll along the riverside. All the Christmas markets from Heumarkt, Alter Markt and up to the Dom were easily accessible. We even took this route to get to the train station for journey to Airport. The Hotel is in a fairly quiet street so no problems with outside noise. The Reception staff were polite and efficient and the Cleaning staff keep the rooms and general areas spotlessly clean. We did not have breakfast at the Hotel. If I returned to Cologne I would have no hesitation about booking the Lyskirchen again.
