The River Rhein's 'Hotel Drei Kronen' - not a single bad word to say!
Hotel Drei Kronen is located in the heart of Cologne (Köln) right by the side of the River Rhein. Since I had visited the city once before on a day trip, I decided I wanted to spend some more time here and it only seemed fitting to stay somewhere so beautifully located.
Although I don't know about the history of the building, the Drei Kronen Hotel was fantastically modern, so modern infact that our room had just been fitted with a flatscreen TV as we arrived. I was overwhelmed by the size of the room. Used to normally being stuck in a shoebox-sized room on my travels in large cities, the Drei Kronen provided a seating area with a coffee table and chairs by the window and a large double bed opposite. There was so much room to move around, the room felt light, fresh, and full of summertime air.
We had requested a room overlooking the river a week before via e-mail and to our luck they were able to provide it. The view was fantastic and each day we could look out at the boats floating past and watch over the street to all the cafes.
When we arrived we were welcomed with such friendliness at the reception, which continued during our stay. The breakfast was served each morning in the hotel's Italian restaurant below. It consisted mainly of meats, cheese, breads and marmalades; a typical example of a German breakfast, which I always enjoy. When we were a little late one morning, the waitress went out her way to prepare some extra food for us. Even more outstanding was the generosity of the hotel manager. On hearing that we had to arrange a bus and train route to get to the airport, he said that he would take us there himself, since he was travelling to that area at that time anyway.
Hotel Drei Kronen provided us with everything we needed for a rather enjoyable stay in the city, and more! Only one tiny issue: the pillows appeared rather large, but when resting my head on them for just five minutes they began to sink into themselves which made me feel like I was sleeping some nights with no pillow at all! Nevertheless, the welcoming nature of Germany really outdid itself this time. I was thoroughly impressed and highly recommend a stay in this hotel for families, singles, couples, and groups alike!
