Pleasant Hotel Stay
Pleasant hotel. The room was on the small side--so good for only 1 person. If you are seeing any event at Laxness Arena, this is a good option.

8/10 Very good

This is a great hotel for a central location in Cologne. Very walkable to the city center; the rooms are small and functional but very clean and tidy. Parking is a bit challenging but can be worked out by using a public lot about .25km from the hotel itself. It is a good option at a reasonable price point for Cologne.

10/10 Exceptional

Excellent hotel, with very clean rooms, excellent services, friendly staff and good location for the connectivity within and outside Cologne. My only (small) quibble is that it is a bit pricey for the room size & the breakfast is a bit monotonous. I would have preferred a bit of variety in the everyday breakfast.
