Very friendly and helpful reception staff, they changed my room when I complained it was too small and I was going to stay for longer. Great location, very close to Koln Hbf.

The single rooms are extremely small, the furniture is old, there is no fridge in the room and the walls are paper thin.

Ideal city centre hotel for a short stay with helpful & friendly staff.

Rooms were a bit small for the price.

I have been to the hotel before. Both times a very pleasant experience. Rooms on the small side but spotless. Bathrooms clean and well equipped. Location excellent. 2 minutes from the Cathedral, 1 minute from the Museum für Angewandte Kunst which is a must see. Breakfast very good! Staff very friendly. Maggie from the Hague

Excellent city centre hotel, just round the corner from the opera house. Ten minutes walk from the railway statrion and from main museums and galleries.

The hotel's website could have provided a better map of the area, especially the route to the railway station.
