It’s all changed Don’t look at the pictures
Having used this hotel for many years both for business and shopping trips we invited friends to join us for a shopping trip and booked 2 rooms What a disappointment and embarrassment The hotel changed hands approx 12 months ago the new owners have removed much of the ambience and facilities that made this hotel a good clean and convenient choice Although still promoting themselves using pictures from the past. Gone are the toiletries in the bathroom. The useful local guides and what’s on mags in the room , the bottled water and pay as you go minibar you can only get bottled water by visiting the reception The choice of fresh local bread and rolls st breakfast the facility of on site parking. You now have to use a public car park 75 metres away we had two rooms. One had broken shelves in the wardrobe a faulty hair dryer the other smelt like a sewer The TVchanbems have been downgraded etc etc sorry the new owners have lost us as regular guests

Location of hotel suited our needs but really noisy (Traffic and people outside). Fridge not working which was quite important as we had a 2 year old with us and needed to chill milk. Light bulb in the bedside lamp not working, No air conditioning. Wouldn't recommend hotel.

gb1 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
We had a slight issue on check-in that the hotel said that we only had 3 rooms, instead of 4. I had the print out of the confirmation of 4 rooms. I needed to be firm and not allow them to sandwich us into the 3 rooms due to their oversight. Finally, after standing at reception for quite a while, they agreed that we had booked 4 rooms and gave us the 4 keys. I am glad that it didn't get more complicated than that because these rooms were booked months in advance for the Christmas markets in Cologne. In general, the rooms were very simple and basic, but had everything we needed. There were signs on the refrigerators that they weren't working/on during winter months. We had medicine that we needed to keep cold, so we had to use our cold packs in the room. The location was superb! We were able to walk to a number of markets, and then come back to the room to drop off shopping or take a rest. Excellent location! In general, we were very happy with our choice. Clean and neat budget hotel in a great area.

Christmas Trip
We always stay here when visiting Cologne as it is so central. Easily walkable from the station and near the cathedral. The Christmas market is the best we have been to. The hotel was built in 1959 and is quite retro now. Sadly it will close for renovation next year so we hope to visit to see what has changed.
