  • Couple

    I liked how close it was to all the clubs.

    I didn't like the area it was in. Parking was horrible. The rooms were tiny, dark and smelly. The bathrooms were disgusting. If you are sitting on the toilet, you were not able to close the door. The bathroom clearly had mel-due all over everything. The entire hotel smelled like cigarette smoke even though it was a non-smoking room building. There was no hot water! Personally I believe the hotel was way over priced for what was given. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

  • Group of friends

    Clean and basic rooms, self contained with a shower, very good value. Friendly staff

  • Single

    Staff was super-friendly.

    Too much $$$ for a hostel and way below the standard of other Meininger hotels.The room was dirty and the mattress needs to be replaced.

  • Group of friends

    Very good hotel with nice staff and qualitative services. Good Meal. Good location. 10 points out of 10!

  • Family with children

    This hotel/hostel was great value for money and was in a great location. I would recommend this to all who want a budget hotel in a great location. Rudolfplatz is the nearest tram stop and it took about 5 minutes to walk there. There is also a McDonalds, kfc, Starbucks and other places to eat and drink in the Rudolfplatz area. Would definitely chose the Meininger hotel if I went back to Cologne.

  • Single

    Rooms though tiny are much better looking and decorated than what you would expect for a Hostel. I got a deal price. Staff is young and speak English. Free wifi in your room. Lots of backpackers and young travellers but worth a stay even for business travellers on low budget

  • Family with children

    Die Lage ist perfekt.

    Die Zimmer sind viel zu klein und spartanisch eingerichtet

  • Group of friends

    it locate at a quiet place, traffic is convenient and easy to find. nice staff and the room is clean...

    the internet is unstable sometimes.

  • Single

    I liked the position, really close to the city centre and I liked 24h reception. Inside the Hotel there is a Kitchen , a laundry, Internet access and a Bar, so it's perfect for even along staying

    The lift is very noisy and loud

  • Group of friends

    They ignored my e-mail that we would arrive 1 day later (that they had positively answered) and reserved our room to another guest. However they tried hard to fix their mistake and they did. The room was dirty, not even close to what I've seen in the picture before reservation. There were 2 towels for 4 beds. Some of the stuff was great, some was rude. One blanket had blood stains. Good location. Mixed feelings.

  • Family with children

    Cheap price, clean but very small room. Breakfast is cheap!

  • Single

    If you're on a budget and looking for good value for money this is the place for your you, it's clean, welcoming and functional. What I'm saying is it's not a romantic city break hotel. A city break with your mates? Great, otherwise may be choose elsewhere. All said i've stayed hear a number of times visiting friends in Cologne and will be back soon.

    No complaints really. I'd say avoid breakfast, have an extra hour in bed then eat out at the numourous cafes nearby. Not a complaint, just saying I've had better breakfasts.

  • Group of friends

    Good location, nice staff, clean, would stop there again.

    All good

  • Single

    Cheaper than the other hotel as messe hold

  • Single

    A very cool energetic place.

    The elevator was quite loud - I could here the mechanisms running it from my room every time it was used (several times a minute until late into the night, resuming early in the morning). They should really get that fixed so that it is more quiet.
