Really well located- just of big square with bars and restaurants and short walk to shops, river and sights, this small hotel was a great find. Staff really friendly and rooms, small , but clean and fresh. Breakfast was lovely- home made and cooked to order. Free great WIFI. Would recommend. Only small niggle- no mirror in the room- only the bathroom could defo use with one in the room.

We have visited Cologne on a number of occassions and love the city, having in the past stayed in large chain hotels we decided this trip to go smaller our preferred option. We were in town to attend the Adele concert so we were looking for a good place to stay without being too touristy. We decided on Stern am Rathaus based on the reviews on here, but also by the fresh clean modern look from the website. We had a late arrival and reception is closed at this time we were left instructions on ... Read more

The room exceeded our expectations. Great location to old town with beautiful views out every window. I'd read reviews concerning the stairs and not having an elevator but we are on the third floor and it's really no issue. We will definitely come back and stay again! Michael was a big help in our trip coordination.

This is a boutique hotel right next to the Rathaus (Old Town Hall) and a few minutes' walk to the famous Cathedral and the train station, which was the reason I chose it. There are just 8 rooms on 3 floors that are only reachable by stairs (no lift). Ingmar was kind enough to give me the suite on the top floor with a view of the cathedral from the windows. It comes with a mezzanine floor lounging area and has been tastefully done up in the typical German modern style. What sets the hotel apart i... Read more

Booked this property based on ratings from and we were not disappointed. The location was central, rooms clean and tastefully designed, everything works and the overall system was in place to provide a good experience for their guests. As other guests have covered this extensively we will not dwell too much on this. This is not a 5 star hotel but they give 5 star service. From the time we booked till the day we left they have done all the right things. Was traveling with senio... Read more

If you want a lot of extras like a bar, restaurant, room service, etc., then go to a 5-star hotel. If you just want a nice room, wonderful staff, and a great location, then stay here. Only possible negative is that due to its central location, you can get some noise from surrounding streets and squares.

The entire hotel is impeccably clean with a tasteful, modern decor. The owners personally run the hotel and are extremely hospitable and accommodating. The delectable, healthy breakfast bounty offers regional foods with a lovely presentation. There is no better location in Cologne for getting around, sightseeing, shopping, etc.

I have been very remiss in not writing a review of this wonderful small hotel. My husband and I stayed in May 2016. The location was fantastic, we were greeted by name when we arrived and the staff went out of their way to help us organise our sight seeing and to book restaurants. The breakfasts were wonderful and being so close to the station and the cathedral meant sight seeing was so easy

Our experience at this hotel was terrific from stem to "stern". Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by Ingmar, who not only checked us in, but gave great sightseeing tips and a first-rate restaurant recommendation. We were in the junior suite on the top floor (Ingmar assisted us with bags), a spacious room with a comfortable, bright loft. The room is very up-to-date, and decorated beautifully. We are envious of the large, elegant bathroom. The hotel's location couldn't better, within easy w... Read more

If you are traveling to Cologne, Stern am Rathaus is where you should stay. I've stayed in Cologne many times, but this is--by far--my favorite hotel. Steps from the historic Rathaus, Alter Markt, the Dom, and the Rhine, this location is spot-on. The rooms are very modern and tastefully appointed. We stayed in Room 7,which is a suite with a loft for a separate living room and LOVED IT. The breakfast is fresh and very reasonably priced. Finally, the service.

This is a gem of a hotel. Only 8 rooms -- but what great rooms. Mine was spread over two levels, with a lounge area above. A fe minutes walk from the station; right in town but so quiet. Remarkably good buffet breakfast. Very pleasant hosts and staff. Treat yourself to this place if you are in Koeln.

We stayed for 4 nights in Cologne on a 5 night break(with a lovely trip down the Rhine for a couple of days). Ingmar and the other staff were a delight. The hotel location is perfect, the breakfast delicious (home made bread, preserves, yoghurt, butter, freshly cooked eggs and more) and the rooms are modern and comfortable. The outstanding feature of this hotel however, is its staff. It is a small hotel and nothing is too much trouble. Ingmar is a kind, thoughtful, cheerful and attentive host. ... Read more

Stern am Rathaus is in the perfect location right next to the town hall meaning that you are within walking distance of the river and local attractions. It is outstanding value for money. The room was spotless, modern and tastefully decorated. The rooms are not huge but we did have an extra bed and a travel cot in the room. The bathroom was a wet room with a great shower although the water did end up spreading from the shower but this was not a huge problem. My only my minor whinge was a lack... Read more

To be greeted at the front desk with genuine warmth is a rare experience as a traveler. The staff at Stern am Rathaus are lovely people. Every detail is attended to with care and a concern for one's well-being. This is a little haven which I hope to be able to return to again and again in Koln.

We have just returned from a very pleasant stay in Cologne. The Stern am Rathaus was recommended to us. The location is brilliant, everything worth seeing is in within easy walking distant. Staff could not do enough to help. Being in the centre of the city there is inevitable traffic and construction noise, however shut the windows, put on the air-con and all is sorted! We would recommend this hotel. Thank you for a lovely venue for a city break.

This is a small boutique hotel in a great location next to the Rathaus on the edge of the nice Alte Markt and only a few minutes walk from Collogne cathedral. It's on a quiet side street so there was no noise at all. Our bedroom was stylish decorated and the beds were really comfortable.The staff were the most friendly and helpful I ave ever met and their English was superb.

I was originally going to give Stern am Rathaus 4 stars purely based on the fact that the room may be a little too small for some travellers but to be honest you should only be using the room to sleep. Located on a quiet street but steps away from the major sights, bars and restaurants, and 10 minutes walk to the train station makies it a perfect location. Rooms are small but immaculately cleaned and very comfortable. Breakfast is in the attached café, which is run meticulously by Kai, always o... Read more

Location was a short walk from the train station (when you know where to go) and an even easier one stop subway ride. After hours check in procedure was spelled out in detail by email and worked exactly as described. Breakfast buffet was exceptional, especially the baked goods. Staff extremely helpful in suggesting restaurants and things to see and do. Room was large, comfortable, quiet and well appointed, with 3 windows. This is a great small hotel.

Homey breakfast with good selection of cheese, ham and fresh vegies. Above all, all the staffs were very attentive and friendly.

For a visit to Cologne you could not find a better appointed hotel at a fabulous price. Both the Alt Markt and the beautiful cathedral are but moments away. The greeting from Michael was most helpful; the room was very clean and welcoming; the breakfast presented by Manfred was excellent. I could not rate this higher.

This hotel was just a short walk from th email train station, close to the restaurants of the Alter Markt and Heumarkt, and close to 3 major museums. The room was comfy, clean and modern. No shower curtain, but that seemed to actually work OK. the breakfast offered a wide variety of food, savory and sweet. The bread was delicious, some of it homemade. Staffeta was really friendly and helpful. It's a funky little independent hotel, understated.

We stayed three nights and we enjoyed it all. The staff was helpful and pleasant, the beds were very comfortable, and the breakfast was filled with lots of choices. You can walk to everything! The main shopping areas of the city were also within walking distance. It was nice to be so close to the Christmas markets so we could visit them both in the day and at night to see the wonderful lights.
