If you take a taxi from the ferry terminal, BE SURE you're told it's 100, not twice what we paid to get to Chillhouse. Or if you're in doubt, take a pic of the driver information that should be hanging over the seat and report the scam. Other than that, ChillHouse is wonderful...as long as you don't need a TV. This was our second stay at ChillHouse and when we return to BA, we'll stay again. ChillHouse staff are great!
Location is excellent. Easy walking distance to Old Town, bus transportation, shopping, restaurants. Staff is very responsive. Hotel is very secure. It's the perfect place if you like to be out and about, not just sitting in a room watching TV or reading. We visited during winter therefore street noise was not an issue. Would stay at Palacio again.
WE WOULD STAY THERE AGAIN!
It's a GREAT PLACE!! Very close to everything. would I stay again. Yes!!!
It was WONDERFUL!! We had a spacious double private room ensuite. Bed very comfortable. Everything about the room was excellent as well as the hostel facilities. Location was convenient to train transportation, but in a quiet neighborhood type area. Lots of trees. It will be ethe ONLY place we will stay on our next trip to Koln. By the way, the breakfast served offered many choices other than the often served cold meat, cheese and roll. Staff members were very friendly and helpful.
Unique experience, but not for those who need a lot of space or want to spend time in their room. It is a boat so rooms are small. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very good breakfast. Convenient, quiet location. Can easily catch a bus to the main train station which is only one stop away or you can walk. I would stay again.
