Quiet, mid-sized hotel in Cologne
Despite being located on a major traffic artery in Cologne, the hotel and rooms are remarkably quiet, a tribute to German window and door technology. The location is perfect for the use of public transportation: trams, buses, and commuter rail lines are all close by . The breakfast buffet is outstanding and serves hot as well as cold items, and typically German breakfast fare. A coffee maker in the my economy-priced room would have been a great addition. This hotel is perfect for the leisure traveler and also for the business traveler who does not have to be in the downtown financial district.
