Only spent one night here but it was just right. The locations is super convenient. By train, it's one street over walking out of the Cologne Deutz train station. It's also a neat walk across the bridge full of lover's padlocks to the cathedral and main shopping area. We drove and upon arrival, the owner hopped in the car to show me a close by parking garage, 12€ per day. He pointed out favorite restaurants plus a famous one a few doors down from his hotel. Political types will want to ask about the story behind this one.
The hotel was fine and very clean. The breakfast was just right. It is a typical European continental so just set expectations. We really enjoyed. The best part of our stay was the friendliness of the owner and his information.

Hotel Merlin was the perfect hotel for me. I came for a business conference in the Kolnmesse and stayed 3 nights there. It's only 6 minutes walk from there and 3 minutes walk to the train station. The staff were great, super kind and helpful. Lot of very good restaurants are next to the hotel. I very much recommend Hotel Merlin and will defiantly stay there again next time :)

Stayed at this hotel for business. What a lovely little find, great location for the Messe and also an easy walk across the Rhine to the cathedral (20mins). Very clean and comfortable, the owners made me feel very welcome. Recommend.

I have stayed at this hotel quite a few times when I attend a trade show in Koln. It's very close to the Messe fairgrounds and close to public transportation to quickly get to the town centre.The rooms are small, but efficient and clean. Breakfast is great, The owners are very nice and attentive.
Great little hotel
