Close to train station, clean, quiet Gym + good breakfast
internet service was free but terrible - it blocked a lot of sites which it had no reason to block - such as email servers - so was essentially free but useless! otherwise a very nice hotel though
Room was not available until 15.00 o clock
location, size of rooms,car park,food and price of the food,car park behind hotel go to top floor for hotel use only felt a bit cold out of the rooms, bar under staffed one member doing bar and room service
very nice hotel, staff friendly and rooms spacious. only thing wrong was the breakfast, too expensive, so went to a cafe round the corner. Hotel handy for train and easy to get into town. Breakfast, too expensive.
Room was huge and extremely clean. Great value! Friendly staff and close to everything. Hot water was lacking the first day of stay (shower). Second was great.
Somebody spent a lot of money on fancy Italian Furniture and Artwork. Nasty location, train-wreck parking garage, strange reception, no sense of happiness in the entire hotel, ashtrays and smoke in the hallways and bar, somebody put a fuzzball table in the 1st floor hallway. Weird carpet. Strange place; if you are from Russia or Kazakstan, you may appreciate the vibe here, but otherwise you will not.
Good location - easy to get to city centre I was definitely expecting more - the rooms were very impersonal. Beds were uncomfortable. No tea/coffee/biscuits. Disappointing and I wouldn't stay there again.
The room we stayed in was large, new and had a nice bathroom. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is located next to a large number of railway tracks. As we like trains and live in a big city as well we did not mind the noise and enjoyed the view. This might not be applicable to people whom are used to piece and quiet. Maybe the rooms in the front or at the side of the hotel will be more silent.
Location, location, location. A very tastefully, nicely appointed, extremely comfortable room and a super nice breakfast buffet. The parking although secure, was not that accessible for checking in and out as well as not being all that cheap. But what can one expect being practically downtown Cologne. The other pet peeve was that in order to turn on a bathroom light, the entry light switch had to be turned on which left a bright LED fixture on in the closet ceiling next to the bed. This light would disrupt the other person asleep in the bed.
Ease of access from S-Bahn, staff friendliness and helpfulness, large clean room in which everything works, classical building All good - no problems.
Staff very friendly and efficient and always ready to help if you are in need of anything.
Quiet with nice view, friendly staff and excellent breakfast buffet.
Location: only 10-15 minutes walk from the cathedral. Quick check in and out. Strong free wifi (1st floor room). Variety of restaurants &caffees nearby. Expensive parking (€16). Some of the staff was not very friendly.
Excellent value for money - this is the 2nd time we are staying at this hotel!
Excellent staff. Good value, included breakfast. Approx. 15-20 walk to Dom
Location is just near the centrum. Car park costs EUR 16 per day.
didn't know i should pay additional fee for breakfast till we checked out.
Very friendly staff and the breakfast was lovely, wide range of choice the pillows were way too thin and soft
Best thing was location , transport nearby , staff were welcoming The air condidtioning wasnt working when we got there which was very disapointing and some of the rooms got mixed up
I booked for a double room, very late a saturday night, and when I arrived there only twin room were available, but the receptionist was looking for a double bed and finally he gave us a triple room for same price. Only free wifi in the lobby.
Friendly, polite service, suitable amenities
For 10 Euros, a very nice breakfast. The hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood, and my room had a balcony. Everything was good.
Friendly and helpful staff - recommended a good restaurant nearby. Nice dining room and a hearty breakfast and a very jolly waitress. It was a very cold day and the room was cool rather than warm. That and the twin beds slightly took the romance out of the stay...
The vintage atmosphere and the old shoescleaner machine at the entrance of the stairs
helpfulness of staff - told us transport information and good local pubs to eat in no kettle, cold bedrooms - got extra duvet. Kettle is a necessity
Cologne is a wonderful City. I used it to stay in to attend the Medica in Dusseldorf. Caught the train every day. Shopping is good. Despite booking a twin room, I had a single bed and then was charged for two breakfasts for each day
Quiet location, only 150 m. from an U-bahn station. Excellent buffet breakfast No.
hotel staff cleanliness of our room
The room was very comfortable - the breakfast was excellent - and the staff, if not always as knowledgeable as we would have liked, were both friendly and efficient. No
The staff were very helpful and accomodating. we enjoyed it so much we stayed an additional night.
Excellent! A light switch was broken in Rm 2 and presented a danger to users.
Reasonable value for near city centre and friendly front desk staff No restaurant or room service (known), Good sized room, but in basement! Room and all its furniture and contents smelled really badly of cigarette smoke, consequently all my clothes and luggage needed cleaning afterwards.
large quiet room, friendly desk staff, reasonably convenient location only 15 minutes walk from centre
15 min walk from the main rail station and the Dome, room (room 50 5th floor) was ok except the smell of smoke, tv, bathroom ok. Breakfast was excellent for the price (4.50e) Smell of smoke in our room
Efficient staff and clean rooms Wireless internet was slightly too expensive
Even though, I was reserving the room a day earlier, it really did not came to my mind that for this kind of money I could be put into the basement. Literally!!!!
Close to the Cathedral and Station, about 10 minutes brisk walk. Also easy to get to many of the Christmas Markets. The pension was clean and had everything you needed but very basic. Ideal for a one or two night stay. The staff were very nice and gave us an drink of orange whilst we checked in and helped with our bags. The room was small and a little cramped but okay for the one night that we stayed.
breakfast carrying suitcase up 5/6 floors
Location quite good being within reasonable walking distance to the city Bathroom very small, towels far too small, showerhead falling down breakfast ok, but expensive for what it was. No lift
If you want to stay somewhere that is "unique", clean and friendly then this is the place. I am used to staying in the chain hotels and I suppose that is what I was expecting but it is certainly different! I would not put people off staying here as you do have a lot of freedom, your own key for the main entrance so you can come and go as you like! It is a good 20 minute walk from the centre, the room doors are quite thin so it is easy to hear people talking in the coridor and stairs, the double room was two single beds pushed together, not even a double duvet which is frustrating if you are going away for a romantic break! great if you're married! This hotel is great if you are students travelling and want somewhere mid range, however if you have got the money then maybe stay closer to the centre!
friendly staff the website said reception was open until 11pm but in fact it closed at 10pm -before my arrival time.
location Hotel Staff....
Relatively close to center The room was quite cold during the night and the second morning I could`t have breakfast because i didn`t announced it previously
Location Bed was very uncomfortable
We spent seven days in this hotel, which is a 15 minute walk from the city center- that is the main railway station and about 200 meters from the hotel there is tram. the staff is very friendly, the rooms are very clean, changing towels and more. .. one word- excellent .Regards from Serbia
U-Bahn and Transpots are easy to reach, small restaurant and small supermarket all arounds. Taking the luggage to the 3rd floors without escalator, My room was to small, bett was to old, towells to small. And they didn't clean up the room properly.
Nice, familly hotel. Very polite staff. My room was small but I felt there very good. No parking infront of a hotel.You can use a parking space that hotel offers (a block away), but the street the hotel is located is one way so you need small "trip" to get to parking.
First of all I would like to say that the staff was very helpful and friendly, the hotel/room was very clean, the location was also very good (only 5 minutes of walking on a straight street takes you to Koeln Hauptbahnhof and the city center, where the Dom is) and the breakfast was perfect. Thanks a lot for making my stay there so enjoyable!
Location is excellent but the hotel itself is a definitely a budget hotel. extremely small rooms, the smallest ones I´ve ever seen plus shared washroom & shower. Other than the room of a size of a shoe box and shared washroom facilities (although, to be fair, I knew what I was getting myself into so no surprises there), I just hated the fact that there was no elevator there! The stairs are very steep, narrow and windy. Just perfect to scale for someone with just a (small) backup but if you have your 50 pound suitcase with you....good luck!
atmosphere, comfortable bed, clean room, breakfast and helpful people. no lift, but they will help with luggage. the water for shower is very weak.
Friendly staff, cheap accommodation
Good friendly family run hotel. Very fair price and a step above most budget hotels I've stayed in. Just 15 mins walk to the main station and cathedral with the media park/Christophe St metro nearby for the lazy! Comfortable bed and shared bathroom spotlessly clean and well maintained. Multi Channel TV. No lift so problem if you have heavy luggage.
The staff was very helpful even if we were arriving very late.
The staff was very friendly. The room and (shared) bathroom was kept very comfortable. The Breakfast was excellent. The rooms are not isolated, you could perfectly hear the conversation in the next room.
Unbelievable value for money. Spoke excellent english and very friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom very clean. Lovely breakfast.
I had a night stay in Cologne while driving from Italy to England. the hotel is very central, staff are friendly and really wellcoming, will definetly stay again.
Very Clean Hotel. Very helpful staff. Great location ... and yes, I would stay there again. No
Clean room, good bed, breakfast (fair and included in price) Only minor things - too soft and flat pillow, no minibar, coffe was not good at breakfast
the hotel is lot improved since last I visited it few years ago, the staff are friendly and the services were good
Very nice staff with good recommendations for local restaurants. It was refreshing to have a common area without smoking. A previous reviewer noted that the elevator was very small. We have found this to be true in most German hotels. Regardless, at this hotel we fit my husband, teenage son, and myself in it with a large suitcase.
I would consider the Boulevard as a real find for those wanting a well situated hotel offering very good value for money and above all, a friendly,obliging and very welcoming management and staff. I have no hesitation in recommending the hotel. Nothing
The location is great - < 1km from the city center - Cologne Dome. Rooms looked refurbished - clean and staff was very helpfull and friendly. The double bed had a single matrasse - which meant my wife was catapulted everytime I turned ...;-)
The location was good with local parking at a reasonable price.
The hotel manager was particularly helpful and friendly.
Good location, friendly and helpful staff. Very clean, good sized rooms.
The hotel is comfortable, clean and conveniently located. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. The breakfast is good. There is some street noise.
