First time in Cologne and at this hotel. We received the warmest of welcomes at this hotel. The location was excellent, only a few minutes walk from the main train/bus station and also the Cathedral, but off the main road, so no noise. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. The rooms were very bright and extremely clean. The shared bathroom facilities were also extremely clean and there were plenty of them. There was one bathroom on the floor we were on and two more on a small flight of approx 10 stairs down. We never had a problem accessing one. We would definitely stay at this hotel again, on friendliness, location and price.

A clean, friendly and welcoming family run hotel 5 minutes walk from the railway station. The owner recommended a small "pub" for dinner, 5 minutes walk away - Bruecken - where we ate well for a modest price, and lent us an umbrella as it was raining. Breakfast in the hotel was excellent - neatly laid out tables, with a boiled egg awaiting you, a really fresh array of cheeses, meats, warm bread rolls, fruit, yoghurt, etc, and a pot of fresh coffee promptly served. Thoroughly recommended.

Quite comfortable and near to the city center, a little bit old. Rooms aren't new and not very well insonorized but the hotel is located in a quiet street and most of the rooms are on the backyard; anyway you can hear your neighbours, if you're unlucky. The staff was very helpful and kind: they all speak Italian (for who needs). The breakfast was really a big surprise in a so little hotel.

The hotel is as described and the staff was very friendly, competent and efficient. My only negative comment is about Venere.com: the hotel had not been informed about a special requierement I filled in the venere.com page (about an extra child bed). However, on arrival they immediately gave us a three-beds room maintaining the price. ps. Why do I HAVE TO answer all questions? About some of them I don't know. for instance, I cannot rate the "type and number of available rooms", since I just asked for one type of room that was available... I'll give a 10 for all those.

Quite good small unpretentious hotel. It is situated beside the station near the center of cologne slightly set back in a quiet street. The service is basic but good. The employees are really nice and helpful. Breakfast is well furnished but not exceptional. Rooms are simple with two single bed instead of a double bed. Bathrooms are shared on the floor. It wasn't a problem for me as they were clean and available. There is no private parking but it is possible to park for free in the street during the weekend. To conclude it is a simple, well situated hotel for people who don't want to spend too much money in the housing and don't look for an upscale hotel.

It's very simple to reach the hotel following their instructions (from the train station). The room was small but light and clean with very nice bedding and view to their nice patio. The bathroom very new and clean, towels changed everyday. Breakfast abundant and good, nicely served. At every moment it is obvious they care for their hotel and for their guests. We will return and recommend the place very much.
