My colleague & I stayed here for 5 nights whilst exhibitioning at the koelnmesse. The hotel is a 10 min walk from East Entrance & we walked there & back every Day. It is in a perfect location for restaurants & a 20 min walk from 'old town'. The negative: the rooms are very very warm (without heating on) &... More

Very friendly staff (for a city centre hotel). Room was a little on the small side, but soundproofing excellent, and enough space for one to sleep and work (which was all I needed!) Excellent public transport links and location. The breakfast was one of the best I've had anywhere in Germany (and I'm a real German-breakfast-o-phile!)

Location is perfect if you want to attend of exhibit, Koelnmesse is only 5 minutes walking from the hotel, rooms are clean and comfortable. Mini bar is not available in the room but customers have a complimentary bottle of water.

I have stayed in this hotel three years running and cannot recommend it highly enough. Very clean, very friendly and very convenient. Close to a train station and a short walk across the bridge to the Dom.

The hotel is next to the Arena and Convention Centre, two minutes' walk from the Koeln-Deutz mainline railway station and right next to a U-Bahn station so it is very accessible. The cathedral and city centre are a pleasant 15 minute walk across the Rhine, or a short ride by U-Bahn. The hotel itself is clean, friendly and comfortable. Decor... More

OK we had no air conditioning but there was a fan which made the situation more comfortable. and we knew we didn't have air conditioning when we booked! The whole hotel was beautifully clean, the staff were... More

“Try to get a room away from the traffic - it's in a busy location, and, without air conditioning, you'll want to open your windows during the summer.”
