It's clean, it's well run but it's not a hotel
It's clean, it's well run but it's not a hotel, it's a hostel which would be suitable for anyone on a tight budget or teenagers backpacking around Europe but it should not be classed as a hotel. It's small, cramped, and the single rooms are more akin to prison cells, it's lacking air conditioning which means the windows need to be open 24 hours a day in the summer, and it's proximity to the 'Dom' makes for a bad nights sleep when the bell is chiming the hours. Bed's are small and uncomfortable, and during times of high demand (trade fairs at the Koln Messe) the prices (like any other hotel in Cologne) rise steeply. For real hotels this may just about be defensible, but for this place the price rises are way beyond anything which would pass for acceptable given the quality of the accommodation.

Good for a short stay
We stayed here as a family and received a very warm welcome. The room had the cot included a small requested. The staff was friendly and the hotel is in a very central location. The room was very clean and you can rent a kettle for a deposit (which you'll get back at check out). It was very quiet and a good stay for a night. The rooms were really small and the mattress too softt for our liking was everything else was ok. Definitely had a pleasant stay here.

Book only for location.
I spent 4 days in Germany. This was the most I paid for a hotel and it was the worst. You could not even walk around the beds in the room. Room faced a noisy back street. Churchbells rang all night. Room neded painting, elevator old and dirty.

Not bad at all
The hotel was surprisingly clean and comfortable. It is located in a very close proximity to the Cathedral and the train station. The room was small but for a couple of nights it would serve the needs. the bathroom was clean and had all the necessary amenities. Check in for quick and so is check-out. Overall, a good place to stay for one-two nights.

Convenient location and pleasant staff
I was a bit apprehensive about a combo hostel/hotel, but this worked fine. It's within a 7 minute walk of the Cathedral and 10 minutes to the train station. They are updating the furniture/bedding now. Staff was very helpful to print out and scan a document. It's on a busy street but I had a room facing a walkway that was quiet.
