Since February 2013 the A&O Koeln Dom presents itself in a new light! With new, yellow exterior color we give our guests a warm welcome. Arrive in the spacious lobby area and check in at the front desk. After the renovation, each of the 44 rooms now offers modern bathrooms with shower/toilet in a familiar, high-quality A&O standard. The newly designed breakfast room with the -Cologne look- and free Wi-Fi on the ground floor now invites guests even more to taste the all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet.
The A&O Koeln Dom is very central. It's only 100 meters to the Central Station and the Cologne Cathedral. The Cologne Altstadt is just 300 meters from the hostel. With its central location the A&O is easy to reach by car, train or bus, and is the ideal starting point for excursions into the city.
In the small A&O Koeln Dom you'll experience the cheerful Cologne spirit and have an inexpensive and central spot from which to discover the Ruhr capital. Due to its central location right in the middle of the city centre you can admire the numerous sights. The excellent transportation connections also make it just a short distance to the trade fair grounds.
