It's a very small hotel with only eight rooms, I think. Try to get Room 7 if you can because we loved it. There are no elevators and it's located on the top floor but go ahead and drag your suitcases up. While the room was small, it was modern, cute and clean. A small, spiraling staircase takes you to a small sitting area with four windows that allowed you great views of the city. We had two kids so the staff had already converted the sofa into a bed. We kids loved this loft area. The bed and bedding wasn't the greatest we've seen but they were fine and comfortable enough for tired travelers. The bathroom is superb--cool shower stall, large soaking tub--everything was clean and modern. The bath towels could be newer and nicer but not really a complaint. The TV is small but so what--we were here to see Cologne and this cute hotel was less than three blocks from the awesome Cologne Cathedral, food, shopping and the train station. It's an ideal location and we would stay here again if ever back in Cologne.

My husband, 15 month old daughter and I stayed two nights here. The hotel is a little difficult to find. We entered the address in our GPS and spent nearly two hours looking for it. When we did, it was worth the hassle. We were greeted by a friendly gentleman at the front desk and were taken up to our room. The room was small, but clean, modern and very comfortable. Added bonus was the air conditioning. They also had a bed set up for our daughter as well. The surrounding neighborhood provided plenty to see and do. *Tip* If you are coming by car, make sure to request a parking spot directly from the hotel. It will save you a little money.

The location was great. It was nice to hear the church bells in the morning and have brew halls and eating establishments within walking distance. It would have been nice to know that our reservation did not include breakfast. However, for 8 Euros the fresh foods were well worth the price. We especially enjoyed the smoothie shots. The room was bright, clean, and spacious. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We would recommend and stay here again!

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.

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.

No need for a taxi as you can walk to this hotel from the railway station. It is short and straightforward stroll provided you follow the directions provided. Location, location is not the only catch cry although it is a good one for starters. Near the magnificent Cologne Cathedral which if you must visit cathedrals it is one of those not to be missed but the nearby Romisch-Germanisches Museum which is built around a near complete Roman mosaic floor as well as an extensive collection of Roman artifacts is highly recommended. The Town Hall which is within 100metres of the hotel is a unique building covered in stone statues each of which has its own story. You will have to discover them for yourself but immediately adjacent is another current archeological dig, revealing further extensive Roman ruins. Oh and I almost forgot there are restaurants everywhere, just make sure you find one that is used by the locals rather than the tourists.

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.

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.

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.

Το ξενοδοχείο είναι σε κεντρικότατη τοποθεσία, δίπλα στο Δημαρχείο, στην παλιά πόλη. Πεντακάθαρο και μοντέρνο. Τα δωμάτια ωραία σχεδιασμένα. Τα παπλώματα όμως μικρά για ψηλούς ανθρώπους. Το πρωινό αξίζει τον κόπο, είναι σχεδόν όλα τα προϊόντα βιολογικά και πάντως χειροποίητα. Οι ξενοδόχοι πολύ ευγενικοί. Όταν επιστρέψαμε στο δωμάτιο από τη βόλτα μας, μας περίμενε ένας σοκολατένιος λαγός για την κόρη μας (ήταν Κυριακή του Πάσχα). Θα έμενα ξανά ευχαρίστως.

Top choice. Excellent location in quiet street in the old town. Lovely modern rooms in old building. Wonderfully helpful and friendly staff. Excellent breakfasts. NB old building = lots of stairs ie not for you if you have mobility restrictions.

"Lovely, well run, small hotel"
04/04/15 P-K1999 Manchester
First visit to Germany and so pleased we chose this lovely hotel in the city of Cologne. First recommendation, book direct with the hotel if you can, this way you'll benefit from their special offer of inclusive breakfast and their welcoming email a few days before you travel that includes easy to follow directions to the hotel, with photos from the station, making it easy to walk direct from the station in about 7 minutes. We arrived after 7pm so were given a door code and our keys were waiting on top of their honesty bar fridge for us as there is no one on reception after 6pm, but don't let that worry you, staff are readily available at any time should you need them as we found out on our second evening when we couldn't access our in room safe - we called the number given and Jork appeared within a couple of minutes and fixed it very quickly. The junior suite room 7 was well furnished, very comfortable bed with crisp cotton linen and I would guess down quilts, and you each get a single quilt, great idea, we're thinking of doing this at home. Best thing off all in the room, the only hotel we've ever stayed in to have a UK plug socket and what we would guess was a US socket in addition to the expected continental socket - they must have known I'd forgotten to bring my adaptor plug!! Our room had a mezzanine level with great sitting area which we used a few tines as the weather was very similar to home at this time of year so rather than set off in rain we read until it eased off. We had 2 niggles with the room that we didn't report as there was nothing that could be done about them, firstly there's a step up to the bathroom which in the middle of the night if you need the bathroom is easy to forget so you stub your toe, and secondly there is a pillar as soon as you come out of the bathroom door which again in the night time is all too easy to bump into, poor husband did just that the first night. Included breakfast was varied and plentiful, all tastes, including veggie and vegan are catered for and included lots of fresh, local and home produce. I can't agree with another reviewer who said if you arrive late for breakfast the choice is sparse, we took breakfast at 10 each morning and there was plenty of variety and where there may have been only one portion of anything the plates were promptly replenished if you took the last one. On our last morning we lingered after breakfast as we needed to leave for the station around midday but the staff didn't hurry us away from the table they kept us supplied with extras and kept our drinks topped up even though they were clearly cleaning up and prepping tables for the next day. All in all, lovely hotel and efficient staff in the lovely city of Cologne that we wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends.

We booked the junior suite at the top of the hotel and enjoyed every minute of our stay here. The room was great, the location is perfect, the staff were super helpful and friendly, and the breakfast is an example to all other aspiring hotels. The fact is there's little to add to the existing great reviews of this place except that they're all true. A gem of a hotel in a lovely city - very highly recommended.

We were in Cologne just for the weekend to celebrate a friend's birthday. There were three of us traveling and it is always difficult to find accommodations for a group of three. Thank goodness I found this little gem! The hotel is adorable! The room was clean, décor was modern, and the bathroom was very big. The hotel itself is in a great location. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the train station and cathedral. Even though it is centrally located we did not hear any outside noise from our room. The hotel staff is lovely. We brought back a bottle of wine one night to drink while we got ready and the front desk guy offered us wine glasses to take to our room from their bar. The girl that helps with breakfast in the morning is wonderful. She made sure that we had everything that we needed. I would definitely stay here again!

Staffs were very kind. I was assigned a bright room with bathtub on the top floor as my request. (Room No. 8) There is no elevator, but a staff brought my suitcase. The room size is pretty good, and the shelves bed around were very convenient. Also there is a closet and a shelf for putting my belongings. There are lots of power outlets. Bathtub and shower booth are separately in the bathroom. Bathtub is deep and large. I could see St. Martin's Church from the room. WiFi also led well. Since the attic room, you have to care of not hitting the head when you stand up from the bathtub.

At the end of February we enjoyed a three night mid-week stay at Stern Am Rathaus. The hotel owners and staff were friendly and the hotel was perfectly located in the historical centre of Cologne. We booked the Junior Suite on the top floor which gave us views of the Cathedral and the Rathaus and more.The mezzanine level gave us extra room to relax and reflect on our day's sightseeing. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was impressive and the room well heated (luckily we could turn the heating down.) It was quiet too, however it was nice to fling the windows open at 6pm to hear the bells of the Rathaus chiming out the tune of The 'Can-Can'! Breakfast choice was good. We loved the home made jams, butter, yogurt and 'smoothie of the day' - and the daily weather report on every table.Truly a great hotel run by staff who care.

We booked here amid many of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Firstly the location of the hotel is brilliant and the directions given to us prior to arrival were very accurate. The hotel itself was very clean and decorated to a very high standard. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating. I would recommend booking through their website as that way breakfast is included, i would also recommend getting to breakfast early as we went down late and the selection was much more sparse. Only criticism would be that the double bed was made of 2 singles and drifted apart over the course of the night. Overall this a great little hotel in an ideal location to explore Cologne.

We loved staying here so much that we forgot to leave and missed our train to Amsterdam! Staff were so great that they rebooked cheap trains for us on a local website (interpreting the German on the webpages would have taken us all day, instead, we were on the next train to Amsterdam within the hour). Great sized rooms, detailed instructions for how to get there from the train station, great restaurant recommendations - even walked us there when we couldn't find the restaurant - and a short walk to the famous cathedral. There isn't a large breakfast selection, but their eggs-cooked-to-order and home-made pudding and muffins make this place a winner.

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. We we were awed by the furnishings in the room the room was spacious and the bed was comfy. The only flaws of this hotel is it doesn't have a lift. So if you have big luggage be prepared to carry it up. But the hotel staff is nice enough to help you carry the luggage up on check in. They will send you up to your room. The extra service that I receive a week before my arrival is.. They send you an email acknowledging of your upcoming stay. In the email they provided directions with pictures on how to get to the hotel. I loved my stay here and wld definitely stay here again.
