Firstly this is a lovely clean hotel in a good location and friendly staff. The downside is the rooms when we stayed were hot and if you opened the windows very noisy from the bars around. I asked at reception for a fan but the best they could offer was that it was the weekend and they would open the...

The location of the hotel is ideal. From the busy Hay Market (Heumarkt) we could explore the old town on foot, take walks along the Rhine or cross a bridge to the opposite river bank. It’s also very easy to take public transport from Heumarkt. Because we stayed here over the weekend, we preferred a room at the back, where...

Upsides: The hotel is in a great location. Loads of restaurants and bars nearby. Easy to take the tram from near hotel to convention center (Koln Messe). I believe the 1 and 9 trams take you right there in 5-10 mins but confirm with hotel. A good choice if you want to be in the center of town near shopping...

The location is really excelent: just in the city centre. My room was large. The bathroom seems to be recently renovated and it was very good. The forniture was a bit old. The room was clean and the people at the reception very kind. As a negative aspect, I booked the room using Booking and the price they gave me...

Super location if you want to be bang in the middle of things. The hotel is above a restaurant so there is some noise from that and also from the street. The staff were polite but not particularly helpful. Our room was cold on arrival - they hadn't put the heating on. Rooms were clean and adequate. Breakfast was poor...

My wife and I enjoyed a 3 night stay in Germany, spending 2 nights at this very well located hotel. Some nice typical German pubs within a few steps of the entrance. Only a short walk to the Railway Station, the Padlock Bridge and the Dom. Enjoyed sitting outside the Hotel with heaters, blankets a Beer and a nice Pizza....

Room was little bit on a small side and quite plainly decorated. However, very clean room and bathroom is really excellent. Restaurant of the hotel was nothing short of fantastic - really enjoyable three course dinner. Also the breakfast was very satisfying with lot's to choose from. Location right in the heart of beautiful old town. If ever again in...

We stayed in Albergo Hotel for 2 nights and the experience was great. The room is spacious, cozy, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom were modern and clean. The cherry on top of the cake was the nice view we had over the plaza. Highly recommended.

The plus: the location is right in the middle of all the action in Cologne. You got Haribo as a pillow warmer. The negative: the location is right in the middle of all the action in Cologne and therefore is incredibly noisy. There's no air conditioning in the room and the windows if open make the room even noisier. The...
