I really looked forward to my stay in Cologne. Took the train from Dusseldorf, paid 11,40 euro and it took about 35-40 minutes to the city. From the Cologne main station, I took the metro, and the closest stop to the hotel is the Severinstrasse stop. From here it is about 8-10 minuttes to walk down to the river and...

Our 'art room' was large, very modern and chic and full of light. Modern art is everywhere and it's a great mixture of minimal design and bright colours. There are a lot of extras that really set the place off like coffee machines, quality bathroom products and a mini bar. Everywhere is clean and the staff are very friendly. The...

Stayed here for the Christmas markets because of the amazing location and previously great stays. The hotel is clean and they are decorated well, but there is no safety for guests. There is no CCTV which works and the staff didn't care about a stolen laptop. To be fair its theft isn't their fault but they failed to ask basic...

Dear Dasiychai, Thanks for your comments about your stay at Christmas time. I appreciate your comments about the cleanliness and location. Concerning the laptop theft. We do have CCTV, and it does work, however we are limited by German privacy law as to where we can locate cameras where they show peoples faces, so this includes the restaurant where I...

This is a very good hotel with almost everything one needs for a short trip. Nice bar and restaurant, a good variety on the breakfast menu, parking, and exercise facilities. The staff is great - excellent service. The room spacious, well lit, and very quiet. We chose the Rhine view, which is a bit of a stretch (or, if you...

The hotel offer rudimentary services, but in a stylish atmosphere at reasonable prices. Located close to center, it is relatively new with bigger than normal rooms. Not a top hotel. but surely better than the relatively run-down other options close to the center. Looking at the price-quality-ratio, a good deal.

Close to most of the attractions. Very personalized experience. Right next to river. Close to Messe. Euro 10 cab ride to the Dom, Messe. Decent food options in the Hotel. One star less because the room wasn't ready until 3pm, which was understandable but very painful.

Great location - right next door to one of the Christmas markets and the Lindt chocolate factory. A pleasant easy walk to the centre, I prefer to be slightly away from the main tourist area of pubs, clubs and bars so this was a spot on location. We had a nice clean and spacious room. Staff friendly and helpful. Reception...

Beautiful hotel and reasonably priced. Bar Staff good and restaurant is excellent. Room is very spacious and comfortable. Only thing missing is an iron int he room for shirts. I left my business phone in the room and the staff arranged for this to be sent to my address in Scotland so happy to say they go above and beyond.
