    The breakfast buffet was excellent

    The beds were terrible. We asked for an extra guest bed, but the springs were so weak that the only option we had was to put the mattress on the floor. The hotel manager still wanted to charge us the hefty 32euros and did not offer any compensation for the poor quality of this bed. The room was quite hot but openening the window was not a good option as party go-ers made a lot of noise on the street.

    Great breakfast buffet on Sunday morning, very nice and friendly staff

    The breakfast buffet on Monday morning was a little less perfect but still good. When we arrived on Saturday, the room was awfully hot. By opening and closing the windows at the right times it would have been possible to keep the temperature lower. On Sunday we were already much more comfortable.

    free bicycle rental -- an excellent idea.

    breakfast music was a commercial radio site. a bit like in a shopping mall instead of good music.

    Good hotel on walking distance from the town centre. Excellent value for the price we paid. We would definetely book again Hotel Espanade when visiting Cologne again.

    The staff was friendly & the fresh modern look.

    Wifi cost per hour 4,95 ! The coffee for breakfast has no taste and the beds are not comfortable.
