Buchholz Downtown Hotel, Cologne
From the moment we arrived everyone was very friendly and helpful. It is a Sam boutique type hotel, which is the type we love. We highly recommend!

Buchholz Downtown Hotel, Cologne
We had a great stay at the Buchholz Hotel! Not only was the hotel clean and well-kept, the staff went above and beyond in accommodating our needs (printing boarding passes/directions/calling cab service). The owners (Sascha and Carol) were quite pleasant and personable. The breakfast was, by far, fabulous! The food was fresh and plentiful. We felt very safe and secure at the Buchholz Hotel and would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Cologne!!

Very Good8.0
Convenient and Clean Hotel
The hotel is located on a quiet street with an easy 5 minute walk to the main train station and cathedral, making it an ideal location for getting to and from, but not being noisy. The room was a good size, clean and with suitable facilities and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom has a shower and no bath, with the sink in the main room rather than in the bathroom. The room was pleasant and comfortable, although not the most luxorious, but it represented good value for money and I would definitely stay there again. We visited in order to go to the Christmas markets, and it was an excellent location for that.
