Was here during a fair. Clean rooms. I had no street noice on my room, but my colleague did have a lot of noise from the street. Breakfast is ok. Very friendly staff. Very good connection by car to the cologne fair.

On business trip, I had to stop in Köln. Booking was made fron the company. Location: good connection, easy to find, on main road leaving Cologne to the North. Parking: on the road, behind the hotel in private zone. Only for cars. Driving a coach, access was problematic and a lot of parked cars around made it worser.. Hotel: modern,... More

Stayed here a few times on business trips as location is convenient for work. The rooms are always clean and simply styled. Staff are always friendly and welcoming (and I have arrived and left at some odd times!) and for an ignorant Englishman like me the fact they all speak English helps a lot. On one stay I left my...

Keeping the price per room in mind, this is an excellent choice. The room was clean and quite modern. The staff is really friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is available for free (although a data usage limit applies, but I am pretty sure the staff would be happy to extend it for you if you just ask). The location is not... More

Well, this claims to be a design hotel but if that's the case then so is my shed. But then I do have a nice shed. Everything is slightly worn but it's absolutely fine, comfortable beds and good showers and wifi, which is what you need really. No a/c but windows you can actually open, which I like. Good breakfast... More

We had a great stay at the Friends Hotel in Cologne. The prize is very good seen the quality. Room is not very big but it was very clean. The bathroom was rather small but also very clean. Only downpoint was that the coffeemachine didn't work. And that breakfast is a little overprized. That was 12.50€ a day per person.... More

During a fast eurotrip, found this place with character... Like a small flat but with the hotel benefits! Might not have the greatest view, but room dont wanna make you leave! The double shower part is must. Not far from city center, quite , and clean.

'Disappointed' isn't a word that I like to use often but on this occasion, I feel I must. Having made a long and somewhat sleepless, overseas journey from the UK to Cologne with two great friends, I arrived at this hotel. I was eager to rest my weary head for a few hours before meeting up for a pre-birthday celebration... More

We visited here in February 2015 and as it was my birthday they kindly upgraded our room. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. Very helpful and friendly staff who go out of their way. Had a very nice stay here and will return

“The entire are is very quiet, so it seems it almost doesn't matter what room you get if you are looking for some silence. There isn't much of a view to choose other than to the streets or gardens, but the entire area is really well kept and nice.”
