    Covid Stay

    As the stay was during the pandemic lockdown of course facilities were limited. However the staff were more than helpful to assist us with takeaway food outlets etc. as the restaurant was closed except for breakfast ( which was fantastic in the circumstances). Staff provided us with cutlery for our takeaways and ensured delivery staff followed the correct safety instructions. Room and public areas were immaculately clean with hand gel dispensers at convenient locations. In these pandemic times the hotel and staff were superb.

    Alles OK.

    Es war alles bestens. Das Personal ist sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich Das Frühstück finde ich mit 21€ viel zu teuer.

    Great stay

    We stayed in a suite and were really happy with it- very spacious and accommodating. The baby cot they provided was wooden and included lovely bedding. Would definitely go back!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I had a short stay in the hotel in August 2019 so when planning my extended 2020 trip to Koln I took advantage of a very good price for 14 nights. The staff, even at the moment, were all helpful and attentive. Around Rudolfplatz is a great area with Aachener Strasse a special treat with a wide selection of restaurants/bars/street food. The hotel is only a short walk to many fabulous shopping areas. The room are spacious with full amenities. Will be back (in probably August) 2021.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Avoid, avoid, avoid! This hotel is a joke, terrible and rude customer service, unwilling to help in any way. I contacted this hotel explaining I had problems with flights being cancelled and asked for flexibility around moving the dates (I did not ask for a refund) and they refused with a very rude email essentially calling me cheap. Thank goodness for Expedia who refunded the full package. Find a better hotel chain, you will see reviews of this hotel are littered with feedback on how rude and unhelpful they are.
