Liked: Nice location. Nice help at desk.

Disliked: I booked a room for 3 people 4 months before and we we were split in 2 rooms when we arrived. This should not happen. Plus, as there was a convention in town, the whole amount got billed to my credit card a couple of weeks before, automatically.; this was written among other informations in a simple email. HEY! That was an AUTOMATIC BILLING email.

Liked: the staff are fantastic and can't do enough to help, especially Bianca, the manager, who made calls for us and did everything possible to help us. It is centrally located. The buffet breakfast is good value and the coffee is excellent. I would say it is a good value choice for people travelling on a budget without children.

Disliked: This hotel is not suitable for groups as there is no communal area, apart from quite a small bar area. I took 11 pupils and there was nothing really for them to do there, apart from stay in their rooms. We had two days of torrential rain so could have done with indoor activities. Furthermore, I booked evening meals and the food was really disappointing and lacking in choice - no vegetables or salad and just a bowl of yoghurt offered for dessert. At 8,50 euros per person, it was very poor value for money and obviously done with maximum profit in mind, especially considering you can eat out cheaply in Cologne. Some of the rooms stank of sewage so there is clearly a drainage problem

Liked: It was clean, the staff was nice, the area is supposed to be "the place to be" at night.

Disliked: They were building something at the moment so it was noisy. There was no free internet and I think for its price they could have offered a free breakfast or at least a towel.
