Stern am Rathaus, Cologne, Germany
Definitely deserves its high ratings
Great location, fantastic value. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The hotel is small with only 8 rooms but they are comfortable and very clean. I started in room 1 and while the bathroom was on the small side, it worked just fine. Wifi was strong. Breakfast in the morning had many delicious options but didn't start until 7am so we had to leave earlier one day and missed it. Parking was a bit challenging in the nearby parking structure as it had very tight corners. Street parking is basically impossible.

We absolutely loved our stay! The staff were all so nice and welcoming. They gave you daily updates at breakfast of what was going on in the area, the weather, etc. Beeakfast was wonderful and always fresh and tasty. If we come back to Cologne we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Very Good8.0
There's Better value in cologne
Stayed in the loft room two single beds,which we found uncomfortable due to mattress movement from the base,so pushed beds together which seemed to solve the problem,Fridge and coffee making in room a bonus and good choice breakfast although coffee a bit on the cold side and out of a machine which didn't suit us , But the location 10 out of 10 saying that would I go back , sorry the answer is No.

Gem of a Hotel
This is a gem of a little hotel within easy walking distance of the rail station, the Dom, many museums and restaurants. The room was small but well arranged and the service was impeccable. Breakfast was extensive and delicious. Restaurant recommendations were great. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. Keep in mind that the desk is not manned 24 hours and there is no elevator and the showers have no enclosure or curtain.
