Positive Reviews


Old-Town Delights

This hotel's location is a hit with guests who find lots of Cologne attractions, including the Dom Cathedral and the waterfront dining terraces of the Rhein, within walking distance. Visitors to the city's legendary Christmas markets also like to stay at this great value spot.


Bountiful Buffet

The daily buffet breakfast offered by this hotel is praised by many guests, who enjoy the selection of fresh items, including fruit, bread, cooked meats, eggs and cheeses, all of which are attractively presented, with the most popular items being regularly replenished by friendly breakfast room staff.


Step Back in Time

Guests love the historic façade of this protected property and are curious to know the backstory of this intriguing building, which actually dates back to 1264. Equally unique within, and lovingly restored in 2004, the Ahl Meerkatzen is a fine example of Old-Town architecture.

Negative Reviews


Adult Wonderland

Some travellers find the adult-themed shops and clubs in the immediate surrounds of this hotel a little seedy, while more open-minded reviewers enjoy the colourful nightlife of their doorstep. Several remark that the neighbourhood might not be the most wholesome spot for young ones.


Dated Decor

The ageing décor in guestrooms at this hotel gets mixed reviews from travellers. Those merely looking for a bolthole find it acceptably basic, while others find worn carpets and tatty furniture a bit of an eyesore. Many reviewers are appeased by the excellent standard of cleanliness.


Iffy Internet

Although many guests find the complimentary Wi-Fi in rooms sufficient for their surfing needs, several find the connection unstable and unsuitable for streaming movies or joining online meetings. Those with rooms on the top floor of this hotel found it difficult to connect at all.
