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.

Do not stay here!
I actually left this hotel without even staying 1 night because of the disgusting room... I originally was booked for 2 nights, but due to the mold and apparent low standards for cleanliness I couldn't stay one minute longer. The room was small (very normal for Europe) but the linens were worn and old, the bathroom was awkward and not clean, complete with long hair in the shower, the carpet had stains on it and I put a towel down to stand on while I put on my makeup and when I picked it up it was dark brown from the filth on the floor. I would NEVER stay here again.
