This place is superb in all aspects such as Location, Luxury, Decency and most importantly the Staff ! The Ladies on Reception are extremely cooperative and friendly. Rooms are little congested but very nicely made . So full marks for this place !!

We chose this hotel for location and price and we were certainly not disappointed. Hotel is lovely, not huge but comfy. Breakfast room was way too warm - not sure if it's meant to be air conditioned, but certainly should be. Room was nice, everything you may need. Location was great, not too far from centre. Good break, nice hotel!

Within walking distance of the train station and ideally placed for exploring Cologne this competitively priced hotel was a great find. Pleasant staff and a lovely array of items including smoked salmon and sparkling wine for breakfast made this hotel one to recommend.

We stayed here for 1 night and it was a quiet, clean small hotel. The early breakfast was perfect as we we were leaving by train the next morning. Perfect for a short stay. it is a short walk to the train station and Cathedral.

There's not much by way of the location but it is about a 10 min walk to the train station and just several minutes further to get to the cathedral. The room was clean and comfortable, a bit worn.

Had a 3 night stay here in December to use the hotel as a base to explore the amazing Cologne Christmas markets. The hotel is a short walk from the Hauptbahnhof and Cathedral (5 - 10 mins) in what seems to be a fairly quiet residential area. Walking back to the hotel late at night felt safe enough.

We stayed here for 2 nights for the Christmas markets. The hotel was well furnished, friendly staff and great selection for breakfast. The rooms were much larger than expected and comfy beds. Overall, we were very pleased with this hotel and the price was very reasonable too. We would definitely recommend this hotel!

Good hotel and near the center of Koln. The room was very clean. The bathroom including the shower was modern. The Koln cathedral was nearby. The city is very German. The stores were not very special. Nightlife was perfect and there were many good restaurants. Very Nice to discover the city by bike.

Very happy with my recent 3 night stay at the Hotel Santo. It was modern, clean and only a short 10 minute walk from the train station and cathedral. Breakfast offered a nice variety and all the staff were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend choosing Hotel Santo.
