"A quaint center city hotel with access issues"
This hotel is fine, with good-sized clean rooms and friendly desk service. However, our room was on the 3rd floor, requiring 6 steep landings to get there, with NO ELEVATOR! Thus I don't recommend it for the elderly (I'm 67) or disabled. Good price, though. Moderate street noise. NO AC (not a problem here in the spring)

Loved this hotel! The staff took great care of us while still respecting our desire to go out and explore the city. Cute room, perfect for 3 people wanting to explore the area while still having some down time at the hotel. Would stay again there any time I am in the area.

Very clean rooms, too small, but very comfortable. We lived on the 1st floor (in front of the reception), so it was very noisy when someone arrived. Location is good - 15 mins to the Cathedral and 5 mins to bar street.

We stay 1 night in City Hotel Storch. The location of hotel is very good, not far from center, near the park. U-Bahn station is not far from the hotel (5 min.of walk). The staff was very helpful and nice. As advantage for us, the staff speaks Russian language. The breakfast was tasty. Room has enough space, radiators are warm and regulated for comfort condition. No lift, but it wasn't problem for us.

"Nice hotel, ok service"
My boyfriend and I had to check in at a late time, and no one was working reception. Instead, we had to buzz a man who let us into the building, and he then called us on a telephone at the front desk and instructed us on how to check ourselves in. Other than that, the hotel was great. Good location and clean, basic rooms.

"Nice hotel not far from main train station"
If u are looking for place to stay for few nights without extra comfort, but in good conditions u would be happy. I didn't expected much, but the size of the single room I've got a little shocked me.. too small for comfortable moving inside the room itself (when the door of bathroom is open, u can't get into entrance area, and too narrow isle between both beds.. so, during couple nights of staying there i've got already couple bruises on my hands due to the handle of the bathroom door and narrow isle). I've mentioned below some things that could be improved, in case the management would want to. Don't take them too serious, they're are just details. So, if u travel and u are taking life easy, this hotel could suit u.

"Good hotel that's about a 15 minute walk from Dom."
This hotel was what I expected it to be. Rather cozy yet comfortable. The shower is smaller than what I am used to and there was no A/C but from what I understand this is a bit unusally warm for Germany in July. The manager was exteremely friendly and even let me borrow an umbrella for the day because it was raining. I would definitely recommend staying here if you have simple needs and are looking for a good place to sleep above all else.

City Hotel Storch was conveniently located to all of the major sights in Cologne. The hotel staff was friendly, and the room was very clean. The hotel was very basic and certainly not fancy, but as simply a place to sleep each night, it was good. A great bargain.

"Nice hotel with reasonable price"
The hotel located near the station, you can travel to different town such as Acchen easily. The room in this hotel is pretty decent, even tho the building is a little bit old, but over all, it's acceptable since he price for one night is pretty low. The owner, I assume, of this hotel is very nice, he'd guide you whenever you got any questions.

"nothing to write home about, but..."
the hotel was average. If you arrive later than 10 pm, make sure you make them aware via email, as they don't have receptionist 24 hours. the location is about 15/20 minutes walking to the Dom, which is not bad. The area felt safe, and not noisy. We didn't have breakfast as it wasn't included. Some of the furniture is outdated, but well kept.

"Simple and clean hotel in the city"
We stayed for a night in this very quiet hotel in the city of Cologne. Room was bright, spacious and clean. It was around 15 minute walk to the Cologne main train station or you can take a train (Metro) for a stop. There are nice restaurants nearby including an Italian restaurant -- Pinocchio which is just opposite the hotel and 1 Spanish restaurant just down 1 street. Get the cologne city guide from the hotel's reception counter! :) You just need to bring your room keys along wherever you go as the main door at the ground level may be locked. (Reception is actually at level 1) Overall value for money.

"Basic but well maintained"
I found this hotel to be a good budget hotel. The room was neatly prepared, renovated, and clean. In-room amenities are basic (towels, soap, hair dryer) but sufficient for a stay when you are mostly touring/dining outside. I was pleased to see a refrigerator in the room. The location was convenient, 3-5 min. from the nearest U-bahn station and around 15min walking distance to the old city. Check-out is easy, just putting the keys in a box at the reception. The only thing for me was that the entrance wasn't apparent when I first arrived. It is a door next to a hair salon operating on the ground floor, and you have to ring to get in. There were 2-3 buttons, and the normal button did not seem to be the right one. I rang the night button (in the afternoon) and then the door was unlocked after a few moments. Also, the TV remote control did not work. But I put importance on the cleanliness/maintenance/location of the hotel, so that wasn't so bothering. Overall it was an enjoyable stay.

It was a small room but it was sufficient for the two of us (my friend and I). We had to check in at 3am and the staff was really friendly and helpful. The hotel was at a good location, near to the U and S-Bahns and it was very easy to get to the centre of cologne or around using the transport system. The location was safe and not so noisy. We did not know where to go or where the christmas markets were but the staff was helpful in pointing out where we should go and by providing us with maps etc. Overall, a very pleasant stay and I would recommend all who wants a cheap accommodation but a hotel instead of hostel.

"Nice and clean"
I spent two nights at this hotel in May 2013. It is a budget hotel run by former Soviets. Located about 20 min walk from Cologne central station it is conveniently located to the city's attractions. The hotel itself is kept very clean. The room I stayed in had its own bathroom and was very small. It was very small even to someone used to small European rooms. I would not recommend the hotel to anyone older or with mobility issues because the hotel has no elevator and staying there involves climbing many sets of stairs. If you don't mind small rooms, stairs to climb and can get it at low price it is a perfect place to stay for a short time.

La fenêtre donnait sur l'enseigne NEON qui a brillé de ses mille feux toute la nuit... pas idéal pour dormir, mais comme nous étions bien fatigués, ... la proximité de petits restaurants nous a permis de passer une bonne soirée.
