Very good 8.0
Great value for families
We travelled with our 2 sons(13 &10).The receptionist was friendly on arrival and the room very spacious. We were given bedding to make up the children’s bunk beds, which took 2 mins, but ours was already done. The location is very close to station and cathedral so perfect for sightseeing and yes there is train noise but hardly any if you close the windows and you are in the centre of a city after all. For what we paid this was clean, comfortable, spacious and great value for money and I would stay there again.

Basic hotel close to cathedral & museums.
A basic hotel, you get what you pay for! We were a family of 4 staying for 3 nights. Breakfast was typical of such hotels, food was fresh and tables etc clean. The room was clean with freshly pressed linen (had to make up beds ourselves). The kids had bunk beds and we had two singles pushed together. Negetives: we didn't master the shower temperature in all the time we were there (but it was clean, positives: friendly multilingual staff, hotel within easy walking distance of cathedral & museums. Area seems safe overall but of the major cities we've visited as a family, I'd say we were most on our guard in Cologne.

Need more option
The stay was okay, but the room smelled weird. I was the only female in the room and there were a bunch of old men. I picked the top bunk and stayed there, but one of the men kept peeking onto my bed. I tried to book another night, but they wouldn't let me pay the difference to get a female only room. Honestly, there needs to be more rooms or an option on here for female only rooms because I'm a little scared if some guy thinks it's okay to watch me as I sleep.

The bathroom smelled like a public restroom. Hairs on pillowcases. There were dead bugs lining the hallway to the rooms. The roof area that you could see out side the windows on the way to the room had old dirty socks on it. Cigarette butts everywhere. Super loud all night from kids hanging out at the park across the street. And since the room was hot, we had to sleep with the windows open. Cigarette smoke and noise came through our 2nd floor window all night. No elevator so we had to carry all of our luggage up the stairs.
