The location was good, not too far from the city centre (about 10 minutes if you walk quickly). The breakfast was good, and the coffee was nice. The staff were mostly helpful. The rooms were very clean. The staff all spoke English, which is a nice bonus and we really appreciate that.
The room was very warm and did not have a lot of air circulation. (A fan would have been welcome!) One of the Hotel staff lost my information sheet (containing all my personal details) and was not able to confirm whether it had been destroyed or not. It was very frustrating. But this was not something that happened on purpose and did not negatively affect our stay.
The location is perfect, the rooms are a bit dated, however clean and comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful. The hotel offers a great discount on parking only a few minutes away. Overall good value for money.
The hotel offers separate (single) beds on the booking.com website and in the confirmation email, however upon arrival we were told that this cannot be guaranteed. We initially were placed in a room with a double bed and we got a very rude response from the staff when we pointed out that we needed separate beds. The matter was resolved in the end, however the hotel should indicate clearly that separate beds are not a given. If they cannot provide this service they should advise guest to book elsewhere.
No air condition. Out side 40°. Its shame.
Location and friendly staff, nice atmosphere and rooms and breakfast are fine.
Beautiful old hotel close to the Rhine and all the city’s major attractions. Staff were friendly, courteous and helpful and a good breakfast was provided.
A stay at Novum Hotel Ahl Meerkatzen Köln Altstadt places you in the heart of Cologne, within a 10-minute walk of Wallraf-Richartz-Museum and Alter Markt. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk and luggage storage.
