All in all a nice hotel, with a comfortable bed. Especially worth a mention was the gym/spa, and the view of the cathedral from the bar is a good selling point. Don't know if this is standard for German or European hotels, but charging for wifi (in-room or public areas) is behind the times. Also the internet connection was not very stable.

Dear valued guest,
Thank you very much for your feedback. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Next time you should try our fantastic georgeM restaurant on the top floor - wine, dine & view.
Have you tried our connectivity lounge next to the reception? There you may use one of our terminals and connect to the internet free of charge.
Kind regards from Cologne,
Esko Rebstock - Operations Manager

Very nice hotel with aan excellent location in the center of cologne. Having to pay extra for Wifi unseen in this Class of hotel. Being à loyalty gold member rather dissapointed not Being awarded a room upgrade while online booking showed availability of upgrade rooms. Being loyal to Accor and still not getting avantages gives me the impression the à club loyalty program is not worth anything.

I found this hotel while looking for train service at bahn.de to Salzburg, Austria from Cologne. There was a special price combined with a free 1-day welcome card to Cologne which had discounts for museums and free 1-day public transportation. The location of the hotel is so convenient; it is next to a remnant medieval city wall, 5 mins to Appelhofplatz an underground stop, 10-12 mins to schildergasse the famous shopping center and 13-15 mins to the famous cologne cathedral and the central train station. The breakfast buffet was plentiful with so many choices including made to order omelet. The cappuccino and espresso machine in the breakfast room is awesome. There is also free internet at the business room next to the receptionists. Don't forget to ask for a room with a cathedral view. There is also a glass elevator which gives a view of the city while going up. We did not eat at the roof top bar/restaurant but read reviews that it was nice but pricey. Only small negative thing was some construction near the hotel with a huge crane and bricks and debris. But since we were out of the hotel until sunset, it did not bother us. The hotel staff were very friendly. Our checkout was early in the morning and we were a bit sad that we could not enjoy the breakfast buffet; when we mentioned this to the receptionist, he ordered for 2 breakfast/lunch box which contained fruits and sandwich to take with us. Although this hotel did not post a star rating at the site, I would give it a 5 star rating for the king size room, amenities, location and free breakfast. I am keeping the address of this hotel in my phonebook and will stay here again if we go back to Cologne.

Room Tip: Ask for cathedral view.

Great location, situated within walking distance to major sites and downtown shopping area. The hotel was in great condition, rooms, and service were very good. The breakfast included was a delight because the food and choices were amazing. The hotel restaurant located on the top floor provided a beautiful view of the cathedral and city, but the menu was quite pricey. We opted to go all out with starters and a bottle of wine. Total price of dinner for 2 = €145,00 ! But we were on holiday so no real complaints. Parking price was a bit mad, but being in the heart of Koln, I don't think we had much of a choice.

Next to the excellent location, good room, service etc breakfast on Sunday was till 1pm, and checkout till 3pm, included in a rate of 99 euros for a double room. The rate likely is a special promotion, though.
Also checkout the bar with excellent views of the cathedral.
