car rental return in Cologne

We are returning an Avis rental car in Cologne on a sunday and we have a choice of train station or the airport .. Both are same price and wondering how difficult it is to return car at train station. Is their parking lot easy to find. We are staying at Courtyard Marriott close to train station which makes it more convenient.
thanks for any help

I'd return at the train station. Don't know where the Avis lot is but the hotel can certainly tell you. Go there first to drop off your luggage before returning the car.

You'll have to program your GPS to find the Kostgasse Parking Lot. If you want to find the Avis parking spaces you have to enter from the East side. Where are you driving in from?

Absolutely take the main station - it is much easier than the airport!

The exact address is Kostgasse 2 - it is the open-air parking lot right in front of the northeastern entrance of the main station (not the side of the cathedral, but the other side where you see a huge blue, caterpillar-like structure which houses a musical theatre). Opposite the parking lot is the bike rental, you cannot miss it.

The AVIS office is inside the main station, just opposite the Reisezentrum (where train tickets are sold).

The Marriott is 150 yards from the parking lot.
