You will find us in the heart of Cologne's Student quarter surrounded by countless bars, cafes, restaurants, takeaways, and clubs. The ideal location to get to know Cologne's fun-loving side. And when you're ready to get started with the sightseeing and shopping, you can reach Neumarkt and the Schildergasse (the main shopping area of cologne) in just 10 or 15 minutes on foot.

We welcome you with an atmosphere of warmth and Rhenish cheer. This starts the moment you check in and will accompany you for a long while. You get a chance to meet a colourful mix of guests in our own bar. So, if you feel like a good chat, go on and grab a glass of Koelsch. Those of a more restless disposition can make use of the football table or the PlayStation. You'll always find a keen opponent. Or if you'd rather have some peace and quiet, you can relax in our lobby, and enjoy free internet access on your laptop.

Can't face Sauerbraten or Himmel un Aed? You're welcome to use our guest kitchen to rustle up something you do fancy. In the meantime, you can leave your washing to our in-house washing machine. Finally, if you don't feel like cooking, just get yourself a snack from the bar.
