    Clean room, everything tidy. Hotel was generally in very good conition.

    Hotel is on the gay street of Koln, sandwiched between 2 sex stores which I wasn't expecting, Location is very difficult to drive to due to one-way streets in koln. Car parking is not good!

    Exceptional

    Very close to a main gay section of Cologne. Room had a mini-bar fridge with many ice cold beer, which was greatly appreciated after walking 30 minutes in the blistering heat from the train station. Hotel has lots of character - middle ages motif. Many good restaurants near by.

    It is very close to the old center. Cheap, clean and the building is a nice old one.

    Some of the crew was not very friendly.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is very well-located - a 5 minute walk from Heumarkt and 15- minute walk from Koln/Dom. The internet wifi is free and works pretty well. The staff is friendly and most of them speak english. I would say the breakfast is good enough for the price of the room.

    I stayed there for 7 days, and they did not change the linen. I also think the cleaning of the bathroom could be better.

    The lobby was acceptable. The breakfast was fine. There was a lift.

    The location of the hotel is between two sex shops. I was not thrilled to find myself in this somewhat rundown neighborhood and to have to walk past windows flaunting sex items. I would never have stayed here if I had my children with me. Our room was extremely small and the bed was shoved into the corner of the room. Very difficult to use. Light bulbs were burned out and never replaced. The toilet ran constantly for two days. One day the towels were all removed and never replaced. We had to ask for more towels. The ceiling in the bathroom was not installed correctly and there were gaps between the slats. I could see black material in the gaps. It did not send the message of cleanliness. There was no air conditioning.

    It was cheap

    The car park was 10 minutes away from the hotel. There was no lift to the floor my room was on. The advertised free wifi is only available in reception

    Good

    The hotel was more far away from the center than we thought. The street was not really welcoming, and there were no private parking as it was said in the description.

    Fabulous

    Staff was awesome!! They were so nice to us in all ways, we could leave our luggage and use internet. They also had very good map of Köln in hotel. Room was clean and big enougn. Hotel location was near enough of the centrum.

    Breakfast was free but very bad, we had to wait for cooked eggs over 15minutes. So waitress was as shit.
