8/10 Very good

Does the job
Good location and reasonable quality. The hotel is being refurbished so the stairs are covered to protect the carpet and there are a couple of decorators around which is a bit disconcerting. We had two triple rooms which were right at the top of the building so several flights of stairs to climb. Our rooms had been refurbished to a good standard. However the bathroom had no hooks/rails for towels or clothes so you had to drape them on the sink/back of the toilet and there was no curtain/door in the shower so the bath mat got very wet. Over all these issues did not detract from our stay, just things to be aware of.

Fine for what it is
The person who checked me in was a little uninterested, but otherwise the stay was fine. They seemed to be having work done on the place. The bathrooms could do with a refresh, but they were adequate. The room was good. Only stayed one night and it did the job.

Room was small but nice. We checked in very late at night and left early in the morning. Our room had a moon and star light on the ceiling which was the most memorable part of our stay. I would absolutely recommend this place if you’re travelling to Cologne

8/10 Very good

Ideal for my purposes, all the facilities I required. Clean, well presented and within very easy reach of bars/restaurants, main station and exhibition centre. My room was a compact, single, sufficient storage and hanging space for my 2 night stay.

A night in cologne...
This place it's pretty good, we stayed in 15 which was a triple room. We checked in around midnight and encountered no problem. If you check in after hours it will all be done by phone which was no problem at all. We did not have breakfast so I don't know about the food. This place is basic, just come sleep and recharge. Our room was clean and had a table and chair. This place doesn't have a lift so walk your butts up work your luggage, after all you came here to walk. Also no air conditioner, but I don't see it as a negative but FYI. Park on the street, good luck. Overall, good place to crash.
