Arrival by train
You get off at Cologne central station. From there you can reach the hotel by taxi, subway or on foot, which is only about 1 km away from the main station.
These are located directly in front of the main exit of Cologne Central Station in the direction "Dom/Innenstadt". Cost approx. 9€.
At the main station, go to the basement to the underground lines. There you can take subway line 5 (direction: Sparkasse Am Butzweilerhof) for two stops to the stop Friesenplatz. The journey takes about 3 minutes. During the day, line 5 runs every 10 minutes. As a ticket, you can buy a short-distance ticket on the track or directly in the underground (fare for adults 1.90 € for a one-way ticket). Leave the subway at the Friesenplatz stop using the Friesenstraße exit, keep to the right when coming out of the exit, turn around the Starbucks on the corner, walk straight ahead along the reastaurant "Wilma Wunder" onto Friesenstraße and walk another 200m to the hotel, which is located on the right hand side.
You leave the main station through the main exit in the direction of "Dom/Innenstadt". On the station forecourt keep left and walk along the Trankgasse along Komödienstraße, leaving the cathedral on your left. Follow Komödienstraße straight on until Komödienstraße turns into Zeughausstraße after about 400m. Follow Zeughausstraße for another 350m until you reach a crossroads where the Römertum building is located on the left-hand side. At this intersection turn right into Friesenstraße where you will find the 18Arts Hotel after 100m on the left side.
