"If you want to stay in Cologne and experience an unusual ambience, take note of this address.
The 6 rooms are lovingly decorated in original second hand furnishings – you should appreciate the art of kitsch. You can sleep for as long as you like at Marsil, room service will not wake you. You might need a good night′s rest after a night in the bar on the ground floor, here you can meet the hotel′s proprietors, their guests, friends of the house and drink with them until the early hours."

Recommendation by Suzie, Singer of german band KLEE
"A small hotel with individual rooms and an equally as individual bar in Cologne’s nightlife district. Whenever I walk past the Marsil, I stop to peer through windows and check if I can see Frank or Cyrus, if they’re there then I go in, because I know it will be a good night. The bar may be small, but never judge a book by its cover. Oh, and you can of course also sleep at the Marsil. There is an hotel above it and you can sleep in for as long as you like …"

Marsilius is a patron of the city of Cologne and can be seen as a knight figure standing next to Agrippa above a portal in the eastern facade of the Gürzenich building.

According to legend, Captain Marsilius saved the city of Cologne from the Roman Emperor Vitellius, who besieged Cologne in 69 AD. With a clever trick, Marsilius lured the imperial soldiers into an ambush and was able to rescue Cologne.

Since then, Marsilius has been revered, next to the city's founder Agrippa, Roman Empress Agrippina and the Three Kings, as a patron of Cologne.

The day went down in history as 'Marsilius Holzfahrt', which translates to Marsilius Wood Ride, and is a festival which is celebrated on the Thursday before Pentecost.
