Novotel never disappoints!
We absolutely love Novotel hotels and enjoyed our stay at this location. The room was clean and we greatly appreciated the sofa bed already fully made when we arrived! We enjoyed the variety of choices at breakfast, especially the chia pudding for me! My boys enjoyed the hot breakfast options like bacon, egg, and sausage!

Basic One-Night Stay in Southern Part of Cologne
Stayed at this basic business no-frills hotel. While it served its purpose for a one-night stay, was not too enthusiastic about bedding or pillows. Rooms are basic and do everything you need for a restful sleep - even though I found the walls too thin. The location is somewhat out of the way of everything and I only stayed here because it was carnival in Cologne and my friends celebrated in the southern part of town near this hotel. Normally, would chose a more central location. Good free WiFi was a plus.
