The heart of the hotel in Cologne beats in a guest kitchen where everyone can whip up a little meal, free baby cots for the smallest guests, spacious common rooms where new friendships can be made, a game zone with foosball for a playful balance, a warm lobby, a bar for evening conversations and useful extras such as lockers, washing machine and dryer that make life on the road just that little bit more pleasant.
Artistic design and a welcoming culture
