The hotel is in a small town called Bensberg. about 30 min from Cologne by Tram. Only about 5 min walk to the Hotel but it's an uphill walk.
Had a three night stay with my wife in dome suite which had a separate living room.
There are cafes, bakeries, Restaurants, supermarket close to the hotel.
We had dinner at the Symposion a Greek restaurant and the food was really nice, Also recommended the Chinese restaurant Hong Kong.
This hotel was a great Expedia find and I really did get a great rate when I stayed here for 3 week in Aug 2012. The rates often change so check back often (I had to stay here longer and got a great re-booking rate through expedia - far better than my fellow Euro guests). This hotel is located out in the country and is a superb location. Extremely friendly and courteous reception and bar staff (ask for Isabella she is really helpful). Rooms are well furnished, very comfortable and mini bar is included. Internet is by daily voucher for a price. Breakfast is a little pricey but you are waited on with a great selection to chose from. If you are looking for a unique German hotel experience (they come and turn your room down for the evening) then I can recommend this hotel.
*For these trips, trip savings is at least equal to the cost of the flight or hotel if booked separately. Note: For trips including flights, you will be charged by the airline for the flight, but your savings on the trip will equal the cost of the flight.
