Some Bathrooms were oldfashioned and ugly (not clean too!). Rooms were ok, except for the loud noise transmitting the windows to the street side. Corridors smelled smoky, although non smoking area.
Staff was quite friendly.
The location is very good, because is close to the Cologne HBF (Cologne Central Station), but is not clean up, and the bathrooms smells awful. Take your thongs. But for stay only for 1 or 2 days is ok.
