    A fair stay

    A good stay close to station & restaurants. Just a little noisy at night with passing traffic & pedestrians walking past.

      Hotel Garni Emir

      Trying to find the hotel was the first problem, as from the outside its hard to locate. The reception looks like an internet cafe and mobile phone shop, so that didn't help. I always pick a hotel that's walkable to attractions when travelling and that was the first attraction. I failed to read the fine print, which said shared bathroom, a big negative for me. But they did have parking available at an extra cost per night. The hallways where noisy, the walls thin but it was comfortable. I wouldn't choose the hotel again, as I am sure there are better options in Cologne. The internet stopped working after the first day and they didnt seem interested in getting it going again.

      Maybe only good for 1 night

      It is very close to the train station which is good. As other people have said, they give you a free drink and free wifi. The problem is that you share bathroom with everyone else, they are not there after 10 pm, so if you have to check out early, you don't know what to do, the walls are very thin, and you can hear the people next door having a good time, if you know what I mean. We stayed for 3 nights, and they never did room service. I guess if you want something that is not too expensive compared to everywhere else close to the station, and only want to stay 1 night to sleep it's ok, just hope there is no mating couple next door that won't let you sleep. Other than that, I wouldn't recommend.
