Check in was easy. Staff was very nice, and was happy to speak English for me. Room was really nice. The bathroom had a heated floor and part of the mirror was antifogging. It had a blow dryer for use, which was really helpful as I didn't want to weight down my luggage with one. It took me a few minutes to figure out that the lights don't work until you put your card key in the slot by the door, but that is just my ignorance of European hotels. Overall a very nice, quiet stay. Beautiful hotel to look at also.

Nice facilities in a pleasant setting near the downtown area of Cologne.
While I would have no problem recommending the hotel to fellow business travelers for the standard of the room and facilities, I would not do the same for the restaurant which, to be frank, didn't perform all that well during my stay.
Nice breakfast selection, but the omelette I was served had been totally botched and appeared deconstructed and the generosity of serving us a full thermos of coffee turned into a solid minus for the thermos being so dirty that it left our hands badly needing washing after using it. One colleague made the observation that this hotel might serve as a training facility for new hotel chain staff..
Dinner service was slow and the food unremarkable at best, making the colleague who chose the curry wurst the happiest of the four of us.
Front desk staff were excellent and swiftly efficient at check-in as well as checkout.
The rooms are fine, but lack common business necessities such as an ironing board, safe, coffee maker and a fridge/minibar. Also, in at least two of the four rooms we booked, the TV did not work correctly, so despite the good value, I do not think this is a four-star hotel in my book.

"Nice hotel opposite the Lindt Chocolate Factory "
This is a nice hotel with clean and spacious room. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The only downfall is lack of tea and coffee making facilities and no air conditioning. During our stay the room was uncomfortably hot and as the room faced a road so it was too noisy if you had the window open.
