"A great bargain."
Wasn't sure what to expect from this well rated but inexpensive hotel but I wanted something close to the station for a late arrival. The toilet and shower are down the hall but, that said, this is just a great place. Comfortable room, very helpful and polite English speaking staff, exceeding clean, and a top notch included breakfast. If I get back to cologne I will surely say here again.

Dom and train station minutes away. remember to think of stairs when booking. No phones but not a real issue. Staff very good helpful and friendly-we had a suitcase break and they found tools for us to fix it-breakfast fantastic and lots of good coffee. really liked this place and would recommend it.

"Simple, comfortable, convenient, pleasant"
My recent stay at the hotel was excellent. As others have said, it has an excellent location and is comfortable in every way. The breakfast is outstanding. It an old-fashioned German hotel with keys with a big weight so you hand it in upon leaving; a nice old and personal tradition as is always including breakfast each morning! Also rooms with sinks but without toilet and shower is still a great way to save money in Europe. These facilities were located directly in the same hallway and were easy, clean and no hassle to use. Danke.

"Very good location; minimalistic with no frills"
Top tips when staying at the Brandenburger Hof: Great location, a short 4-5 minute walk from the Cologne Hauptbahnhof. Nice reception staff, and very good breakfast (served from 7-10am). No elevators. Many rooms do not have a full bathroom-- sink only. So you must share a bathroom down the hall. Feels like being in a college dorm room. Some of the rooms are extremely small, the size of a jail cell. Only big complaint: They do NOT like accepting credit cards! On one stay, they pretended the machine didn't work. On the second, they flat out told me "no credit cards." Just tell them "OK, I will come back tomorrow with some cash." Credit card suddenly accepted. I've stayed at hundreds of hotels in cities around the world, and this is the first that has ever had a no-credit-card policy.

"Great Location, Great Breakfast"
This hotel is less than two blocks from the Central Railroad Station. That means it is within easy walking distance of most things a tourist would want to see, as the cathedral is just across from the station, and several museums and the philharmonic are just beyond the cathedral. -- The breakfast spread is high quality, offers lots of variety, and is more than plentiful. The breakfast room is light and pleasant. -- Last but not least, the staff is extremely helpful and friendly, and excellent in their English.

"Keenly priced comfortable hotel central locatation"
Checked in late and everything was fine. The hotel was clean and comfortable for the price. It is located reasonably close to the main train station (about a 10 min walk). The gentleman at the reception was very friendly and helpful with directions. Breakfast, although the only heated item was a boiled egg there was a full spread to cold meats, breads and orange juice etc, the utensils and area around the food was perfectly clean so altogether an excellent start to the day. Downside: My room was three floors up and with no lift some may struggle with heavy luggage (I was OK). Although my room had a shower and wash hand basin the toilet was shared separate one. (Again I already new this from my booking and that was fine)

"Location is good!"
the hotel has a perfect location, is so near to the train station, which I can't believe it when I reach there! Location was also the only reason I booked for this hotel. Base on the rating here is 4 out of 5. But I don't know how it gets this, coz the room is ok, but no AC there, the toilet is so so small, and the sink there is very tiny which u can only wash your hands there and never think about try to wash your face and brush your teeth there. The wifi is totally not working in my room, I've try to ask them if they can change another room for me, they said they can't do anything and also said the wifi is not guaranteed inside the room and to suggest me to sit downstairs or in the lobby if I want to use the intetnet! Breakfast is emprresive, wide chioce food for u to choose from and drinks.

"Not my first choice"
My husband and I just spent a night here. We originally planned and paid to stay for two, but made plans to head to Berlin a day early after being disappointed with our stay in Cologne. This hotel has communal bathrooms (which we were not expecting). So to use the toilet or to shower you must go to one of the communal bathrooms on one of the three floors. Your room is equipped with a sink though. The beds we found to be great uncomfortable. If you need a decent pillow, don't expect one here. You also have to return your room key to the front desk each time you leave the hotel to go sight-seeing. We weren't super comfortable about this so we kept our passports and travel documents on us instead of leaving them in the room. They also require you to sign forms before they will give you the wifi passwords -- which isn't strong enough to stream tv to your laptop. The one decent thing about this hotel is that you get a complimentary breakfast, and that you are a five minute walk from the train. I wouldn't recommend this place to friends. Also if you have a lot of luggage, be prepared to walk it up a number of stairs.

Just spend two nights and must say how good it was. Near train station and all main attractions including the cathedral. Rooms clean. Breakfast first class,it tasted so fresh. Nothing was to much trouble and found all staff very friendly. Price was a bargain and will be taking my wife there next year for the Xmas market which was also within easy reach. First time I have ever put comment down about a hotel. Very happy to do so.

The hotel is close (easy walking distance) to main railway station however I could not hear any railway noise as it is screened by taller buildings closer to the railway. The staff were very helpful and friendly I was very impressed by the included breakfast which was a feast of good quality food. Bed linen very fresh and good quality. I will certainly return to this hotel next time I visit the wonderful city of Cologne.

"middle of no where"
I stayed for a night at the hotel on my way from germany to Brussels. The hotel is close to Cologne station which is a plus however, I didnt find neighbourhood well. It was quite dark and silent. Hotel is equipped with basic facilities however, they couldnt arrange an iron board for me (which they claim they have). No tea, coffee, water cups in the room. Nothing wrong with bed, room or toilets, Given the price, I think there are better hotels in the area.

"No elevator,you have to drag your luggage up"
If you have any big luggage It is better not to book this hotel as they do not have elevator and you have to drag your luggage up a few floors while staff will not offer any help. The lady that owns the hotel and works in the morning is not friendly and has attitude toward guests but other staff are ok. Breakfast is fine. It took us a while to find the hotel as there is no sign toward hotel (although the hotel is not too far from main train station).

We stayed here for 1 night whilst in transit between trains from Brussels and trains to Copenhagan. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and loaned us an umbrella in the heavy rain. The breakfast was a good German spread including cereal and fresh fruit. The location is just north of the HBF 5 minutes walk and we will use it again.

"Vorher den Parkplatz reservieren!"
"Wir bieten Ihnen kostenlose Stornierung" schallte es mir patzig entgegen, als ich nach dem kostenlosen Parkplatz fragte. Man muss diesen Parkplatz vorher buchen und das stand nicht bei Hotels.com. Aber bei Expedia stünde diese Info. Das Wochenende fing damit "gut" an.... Daher weit weg am Bahnhof gegen saftige Gebühren geparkt. Weit mit den Koffern zum Hotel hingelaufen. So sollte es nicht sein. Zudem sehr laute Umgebung. Man kann kaum schlafen. Andere Gäste beschwerten sich auch. Frühstück ist o.k. Die Lage auch.

The hotel seemed quite classic, so I liked its atmosphere and I felt cozy there. If the people who like modern and spacious hotel will not be attracted by this hotel though. Even though there was no elevator, i did not feel so uncomfortable. The Cathedral is not so far, you just have to pass through the train station which will take 3min from the hotel.

Da elogiare la cordialità e la professionalità del personale, una colazione ricca e di buona qualità. La posizione di questa struttura è ottimale in quanto molto vicina alla stazione centrale, al duomo (centro della città).
