"Great hotel for one night. "
Our stay at the hotel was pretty good. We arrived early and they took our cases for us so we could go off into Cologne without luggage. We drove to the hotel and there's plenty of parking, for one night it only cost 18€. It was a reasonably walk into the city centre, about half an hour, although this wasn't a problem as the weather was great for us! I had booked a double room but was given a single, as we were only staying for one night it wasn't really an issued, but I definitely would have had in changed had we stayed longer.
"Confortable and modern stay close to the tram"
I've stayed in this hotel for business purposes and it served the purpose well. The hotel has some advantages: the room is modern, has free WiFi of good quality in all areas, although not very stable, modern furniture, TV with international channels, the staff speaks good English, the breakfast is complete and of good quality. The position is not as good as easily walking to the Cathedral, but close to the tram (a few minutes walk) as to reach the Neumarkt station at the third stop or the Rudolfplatz station at the second stop. The Rudolfplatz station has good connections, including to the airport and the Neumark station is at a busy pedestrian area with lots of shops, places to eat and drink and close to the famous Cathedral in Cologne. What I didn't like about this hotel is that it had a bottle of 1 liter water in the room costing 4 euros and I've seen in the fridge in the lobby water at 500 ml costing also 4 euros, if I'm not mistaking. I would have appreciated some free water in the room and cheaper one at the reception lobby. The room could have used a small fridge. I appreciate the carpet though and the nice small desk next to the TV. So I would recommend this hotel for the proximity to the tram station, modern look, comfortable stay, good services and complete breakfast.
"Not the most expensive, but probably the most greedy hotel I've been."
At first it looks like a good hotel, rooms are clean and no issues whatsoever. Unfortunately, the first problem is their check-in procedure is somewhat complicated. We arrived as a group of 10+ people and it took almost 30 min to check everybody in. You can book a room for what you think would be a decent price (about 100EUR / double room). However if you're not paying attention and get offer with breakfast excluded, they charge 21€ if you change your mind and want to have a breakfast after all. Twenty one euros. Period. You can literally eat three course lunch for half of that price, in scandinavia (city center capital areas included). But in Köln it's 21€ for the breakfast! Coming back late and feel thirsty' No problem, you can buy 4€ 0.5 water in the lobby, or accept their generous offer of 4€ 1 liter water bottle in a room. Do not underestimate the hotel management, they do know something about price formation - there is literally NO places to have a breakfast or buy water around. The hotel location is very close to the city center and yet, it is in the middle of very quiet neighborhood, with nothing but houses and parked cars. You need to take 2-3 tram stops to get to an area with at leas some shops and cafe. It is for sure, the most greedy hotel I visited so far. Try to find a different hotel in a better area or do very carefully check their booking conditions. And yeah, don't forget don't forget to check on Lidl on your way back to the hotel, unless you want to spend another 100 on a basic stuff in the hotel.
"Lost my booking"
They lost my booking which was made through booking.com and spent half an hour trying to find a new room and making me fill out new forms. Booking was pre authorised on card through booking.com and a full confirmation booking and email were received
"Mid week break"
We took a two day break here in Mid December. The hotel is about a 15 minute tram run out of the Centre but it is possible to walk into Cologne shopping and 30 minutes. Service on check in was efficient and fast. Rooms are fairly basic / much of a much easier but were clean and serviceable. We had an ongoing problem with the loo that was fixed each time it went wrong but clearly needed a permanent fix. Breakfast buffet was excellent and included in room rate. Service in th bar both in the mornings and late evenings was good. We felt location was great - Universittate Stop a 5 minute walk away and tickets available on the tram once you get on. Works like a dream. Overall a good trip and we would stay again without hesitation.
