Very good 8.0
Clean and spacious room with comfortable bed. Hotel within easy walking distance of main sights and shopping area.

Exceptional 10.0
Convenient and great breakfast!
Good position with easy walk along river to many bars and restaurants and cathedral. Excellent breakfast and helpful reception staff with perfect English. Large and comfortable room. Parking available at reasonable cost. Just be aware there is a Cologne city tax - percentage of cost of stay which obviously applies throughout the city

Luxurious Family Room, Great Stay!
Stayed here for the 2018 Gamescom with my friends. I asked for a Family room with 3 Seperate Beds, but only got two instead. I didn't complain because my third friend had a plan of his own so it all worked out in the end. Very comfortable beds and pillows and the room itself was very lovely.

Good Mid Range Hotel
Good mid range hotel located near the river and just opposite the chocolate museum and Christmas Market. Rooms clean and spacious, although beds a little firm for my tastes. Shower powerful and decent Wifi
Lynn, gb3 night family trip
Good 6.0
The location was good and easy to walk everywhere. The room smelled of cigar smoke and was very tired and boring. We would stay in the area but choose another hotel next time.
