Nothing but positives to say about the hotel. The pre-arrival info was excellent. We asked in advance for early an checkin, this was willingly granted. Would definitely stay again....beware the bells though - Köln loves to hear the peel of bells at all times of the day!!!

Walked in, and welcomed by Michael and the others. They were helpful, great location and the room was excellent (with a nice view of the cathedral from the window). Will love to stay there next time in Cologne!

Been at the Stern for 5 days with my family. We had the next door apartment not the actual Hotel room, since we were 5 of us. It was great, nice, clean and very comfortable with 3 separate bedrooms. The only downside was that it was on the second floor and there is no lift, but staff was so nice...

Excellent location, very clean, comfortable beds, amazing breakfast and outstanding service (ingomar was so kind and professional) My kids and I really enjoyed our stay. Only downside was construction nearby which woke us up early both mornings but can't fault the hotel for it.

We visited Stern am Rathaus for two nights in late February. We arrived early and expected to have to check in later in the day, but they checked us into the room at 11.30 am. Room and bathroom were very clean and new in this recently remodelled building. Location was very central and easy to find. Advice was forthcoming about...

We had another excellent stay at Stern Am Rathaus in December 2016 while visiting Cologne for the Christmas Markets. This was our second stay at the hotel and it was every bit as good as the previous one. The whole team does everything possible to make your stay a wonderful experience. This time we stayed on the second floor at...

They have limited front desk times but even if your arrival time is later than this, you can easily enter the hotel and get their help as if the staff is still there. Their hospitality is also in the room. You can find some tips to enjoy Cologne. And the staff is friendly so they will answer your questions and...

Had very high expectation of the place because of the dazzling reviews. It didn't disappoint me a bit. The location is perfect, only a short and easy stroll to the Cathdral, museums as well as Kolner Philharmonie. The buffet breakfast is homey and healthy - the green smoothie is to die for; Manfred managed to secure a table for us...

Hotel has everything and was so clean and well looked after. Excellent location and the staff were so helpful and friendly. Would really recommend this hotel. Main rail station was a 5 minute walk and underdround metro less than a minute. No noise problems at all.
