"A really good boutique hotel"
This hotel clearly deserves to be mentioned as one of the good small boutique hotels. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, very quiet, modern rooms in the middle of Cologne's old town. Only downside is that there is no elevator and you get your workout if you stay in one of the rooms on the higher floors.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gem in Cologne"
I was only there one night but during a 2 week stay in Europe, this accommodation was top notch. Small but service of the staff was very engaging. Room was amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't miss breakfast!"
We loved our stay at this newly remodeled and updated hotel. Only 8 rooms in the hotel allows the staff to provide excellent personal service. Our room was very comfortable. The downtown location was perfect for us. And by all mean, don't skip breakfast! The homemade bread, homemade butter and local honey are delicious. The only thing you might want […] to be aware of is there are 3 floors and no elevators. But I would recommend this hotel and would absolutely stay there again.

"Top quality Hotel"
We've just come home from a two night stay in Cologne. We went for the Christmas markets and the hotel is ideal for it's proximity to everything, shopping/Old Town/central train station. This is by far the best 3-Star hotel I have stayed in. Quiet street, friendly staff - who can speak good English, very clean, very modern - designed by a prominent […] architect. The room was very nice - comfortable bed and modern bathroom(room 5 we had). The breakfast was of high quality, the food is carefully selected and sourced. I took a chance when selecting this hotel and hand on heart I can say I made the right decision. Please do not be put off by thinking its a small 8 bed hotel, this is probably what makes its unique and more personal. Ideal for leisure travellers and business travellers. Free internet service which was fast and gave no problems. I highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great little place and perfect location"
The hotel is in the perfect spot for shopping and the christmas markets, the staff were really welcoming and friendly. The only downside is that the cafe downstairs shuts at 7pm, so there is no late bar in the evening but with so much to do around the place it's nothing to worry about and there is an honesty bar/fridge as well - if needs must.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location in the heart of the old town."
Had two night stay with my wife and daughter, Michael was an excellent host with lots of useful information on the town and helpful hints on things to see and do.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Couldn't fault it!"
Lovely, stylish little hotel. Location couldn't be more ideal, right in the heart of the city centre but not too noisy. Would definitely go back, can't recommend enough. Only slight downside is there is no lift so might be an issue for those who have difficulty getting about. Otherwise, 5 star! A real gem.Genuine Expedia guest review

"super Hotel an super Lage"
war alles bestens. Code für Eingang, top modern!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
立地は駅や大聖堂から近く、分かりやすい。部屋も清潔感がありモダンでオシャレです。バスタブはありませんでしたが、使いやすいシャワールームがありとても良かったです。wifiも無料、グラスと栓抜きが用意されていて、さすがドイツ!!部屋でもビールが楽しめました。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Das Hotel selbst war in modernem Stil gehalten, die Zimmer sind sauber, schön, hell und toll eingerichtet. Das Personal war jederzeit freundlich und alle Wünsche die man äußert, werden erfüllt. Sogar ein Wasserkocher und Bügelbrett sind auf Wünsch möglich, wie uns gesagt wurde. Insgesamt hat uns das Hotel absolut überzeugt. Das Highlight des Hotels […] ist, dass alles entweder selbst hergestellt wird oder aus nachhaltiger, fairer oder BIO-Landwirtschaft aus der Umgebung stammt. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A Star at Town Hall"
04/17/14 Bob-n-Nadine Forest Hills, NY
Hotel Stern am Rathaus, (Cologne, Germany) is truly the "Star at Town Hall". Located on a quiet dead-ended side street next to the old Rathaus (Town Hall) in the center of old Cologne and within easy walking distance of the Main Train station, the Cathedral, the Philharmonie, Museum Ludwig, the Römisch-Germanisches Museum, the numerous restaurants and cafes of the Alte Markt and Heumarkt, and a slightly longer walk from the main shopping streets this "Star" couldn't have a more ideal location. This is a small place, just four floors with a total of seven rooms. The decor is lean, clean modern - colors are mostly white with lots of blacks and reds too. The room we were in, the suite on the top floor, was incredibly huge. On the ground floor is the breakfast room, in which is offered an extensive, largely organic breakfast buffet of locally produced foods - anything one could want - cereals, yoghurts, breads, cheeses, meats, eggs,fruits, etc - and including a large selection of juices and fruit/veggie smoothies. Keep an eye out for homemade treats, such as Beckie's "Armer Ritter" (Poor Knight), a delicious concoction similar to English Trifle or Italian Zuppe Inglese. The small staff is professional but laidback and hip - and at all times friendly and helpful. The rates are quite reasonable. We booked well ahead of our stay and got the suite for around 90 euros per night - a real bargain! One caveat (not for us really) - there is no lift. So those who have trouble with climbing stairs should keep this in mind.
"A very pleasant stay"
04/15/14 P B Norwich, United Kingdom
I stayed in room no. 1 from April 5 to 11. I agree with all the positive reviews here. Rooms are very comfortable and the decor is excellent. The quality of food offered at the breakfast buffet is very high - everything either home made or locally produced. The hotel is located at the most convenient place, yet away from the noise. The people are extremely nice and helpful. Highly recommended.
"Stylish small hotel with friendly service......"
04/11/14 Angelina102 Farnham, United Kingdom
Great location, not far from the Cathedral. We thought the Hotel Stern am Rathaus offered good value for money for a suite Excellent amenities in the split level room, fairly quiet for a city Hotel.... The large bed was very comfortable and also the room has an excellent luxury bathroom with a large wet-room style shower and a big bath. Our room rate included the delicious breakfast with eggs cooked to order and a good choice of other breakfast items..Home-made jam, lovely breads, fruit, yogurt etc: We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel very much No lift.... so a few stairs to go up to the suite at the top of the building......
"Small hotel, great service"
04/11/14 reindeer2014 Oslo, Norway
The hotel looks somewhat boring from the outside, but don't be fooled by this. Once you step inside, you are met with friendly professionality, the rooms are newly renovated, breakfast is wonderful and the location is perfect.
"Warm and friendly service"
04/10/14 484PasirRis Singapore
First of all, the hotel sent reminder of the upcoming stay. It also showed clear direction (with pictures) to the hotel. A little bit of walk from the train station but hotel location is close to the main shopping streets. We arrived early that day when the room was not ready. We took a walk around town first and later found pieces our heavy luggage were up in the room. Note that there is no lift in the boutique hotel. We found the service warm and friendly, in particular, there is a gentleman who offered good suggestions of places to visit. I booked through Expedia for a 3-person room because the hotel website did not have this selection. Suggest that you contact the hotel direct. Room is not large for three person though.
"Stern Am Rathaus"
04/03/14 Steve A Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Stayed at the hotel for four nights in March. Staff were warm and helpful. Room was comfortable with UK charging facility as an extra. Location could not be faulted with easy access to the Altstadt and all the sights.
03/31/14 Penjondan Wroxham, United Kingdom
This boutique hotel certainly lives up to its reputation. We booked the suite at the top of the hotel and it exceeded our expectations ( although you need to be fit as there is no lift ! ). The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom quite luxurious. The breakfasts provided interesting, home-made options with a variety of breads and daily smoothies. We were also provided with suggestions of places to visit each day and these proved to be immensely rewarding e.g. Konigswinter, Drachenburg, and Zons. The staff were helpful and efficient, so we would definitely recommend this as a brilliant place to stay and excellent value for money.
"Excellent hotel in good locatrion"
03/27/14 Chris B Plymouth, United Kingdom
We stayed at Stern am Rathaus for three nights. The staff were excellent: friendly, helpful and professional. The room was good: reasonable size, very comfortable and clean with a lovely bathroom. Location was good: on a quiet street really close to the Dom, station restaurants and the Rhine. Breakfast was really good with lots of home-produced offerings (including butter!). We would not hesitate in recommending the hotel to anyone looking for a small, friendly, quiet independent hotel. Only thing to look out for is that there is no lift - not a problem for anyone who can walk up a few flights of stairs, but if you can't, best avoid

Booked this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and it does not disappoint. It's simply brilliant, staff are warm and friendly and really helpful, they recommended lots of places to see and eat. The room was excellent also, clean and tidy and decor was to a very high standard. We especially liked the toblerone chocolate on the pillows. The breakfast was pretty amazing too, lots of home produced jams, honey, butter, freshly baked breads and little knitted covers for the eggs. We would have not hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. I stay in a lot of business hotels as part of my job and it is great that this little independent hotel can give a better and higher level of service than most chain hotels.
"Superb small hotel."
03/20/14 Morpeth Northumberland, UK
Booked on the strength of previous reviews and was not disappointed. This hotel deserves every bit of praise that it has received from others. Will definitely stay there again if I return to Cologne and they have a room available. The lack of a lift was no problem for me, but I can understand why that could be a difficulty for some guests. Subject to that - highly recommended.
