Beautiful hotel, perfect location, wonderful service.

Very Good8.0
quaint lil’ hotel the center of Historic Cologne
This is a great little boutique hotel with a stylish flare. very close to the main train station and all the major historical landmarks. Service with excellence. Note: stairs are required, there is no elevator to get to the room. Also, the room layout is poor because the toilet is out in the same room with the bed, only a room divider. It would be better to have the shower forward with glass wall and put the toilet where the shower is at.

I'll be back. hasta la vista baby!
You can travel the world and stay in hotels that are "the same". This Humboldt 1 is different. And that's what you'll enjoy. It the difference from the ordinary that makes this hotel so enjoyable. It's quirky, it's luxurious in it own way, it's intimate, it's pleasurable, and it's so in the heart of Cologne. You have only a few steps to make to be in the heart of things. Highly recommended. Also the lady of the house is a true hostess, professional, friendly, informative, helpful and nice. Keep in mind - this hotel is all about the experience, the decor, the service. If you're into some sort of special room service, watching TV or wheelchair accessible then this is not for you. This is about being central to what's going on in Cologne

Cute boutique hotel in a great location
The hotel is great overall, the mattress wasn't very comfortable which is the only knock on the place. We were on the 4th floor, which meant a lot of stairs but it was well worth it for the room, which was great with a beautiful bathroom and good overall ambiance.

Lovely hotel.
Hotel was a highlight. Anya (manager) was great. Very attentive. Our bathroom was accessible by a spiral staircase. Unusual & fun.
