      The property is centrally located near the Hauptbahnhof in Cologne which is great those looking to explore the city or who are traveling. The rooms themselves were well up-kept. Everything extra that was needed (blanket, pillow, sheets) were provided and a towel was rentable (€6 total, €1 fee, €5 pfand). The property’s kitchen and ‘lounge area’ were also well maintained. If you are looking to cook, the kitchen seems to be a great space and is quite large. The ‘lounge’ area has vending machines (for drinks and snacks) and a foosball table (kickertisch). In regards to the sleeping experience- you get what you pay for. The bed was doable, but don’t expect luxury. All around, this was a great stay and very affordable. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a short stay in Cologne.
