Mercure Hotel Köln City Friesenstraße, Cologne
Decent stay, good area, poor services
Decent stay, shower head broke on first use, tough time getting staff to fix it in the day. Internet was free, but horrible quality, couldn't get a connection unless I was in the bathroom or in an odd corner of the room, and even then it was quite slow. I needed to use the wifi to check and send a work emai and I had to sit in the toilet to get it to barely work and send a normal message in 30 minutes.

Close to the city center
Close to the center city. Breakfast was great !! The room service was pressed to clean to the rooms and rush us out to clean the rooms on the 2 days we stayed. Overall the hotel is ok !!

Street noise might be an issue for some
Good location to stay as you can access a lot from here. Typical accommodations for this chain so no surprises there. However, there are a number of night clubs on the street which were'nt open when we were there. Knowing weekend frivolity typical of German cities, I can see noise being a factor. We were there on a Tuesday night and could hear some revelers (for a Tuesday!). So if you want a totally quiet night, that may be an issue for you. That said, this is a good place to stay.

Nice hotel,, comfy beds, great shower. Only downside in room is 2 english speaking channels. Arrived on autumn internationals weekend and Irish bar almost next door with mulitple screens for the rugby and many other sports. Food here is good and value for money. A few nice restaurants in immediate vicinity. Main station is just under a 15 minute walk in a straight line! Will defintely use again if I need to stay in Cologne.
