This hotel was very good - clean, modern, functional - everything you would expect from an Ibis. As we had also arrived by car, it was good to know that there was a secure, underground car park, easily accessible and not too expensive for our 2 night stay. The staff were, on the whole, very friendly, apart from when we... More

We stayed here for two nights on a recent trip to Cologne. The hotel was great. The rooms spacious enough, clean, decent bathroom, everything worked. Great value, and a ten minute walk into the centre. I would stay here again. Car parking €6 per day.

Quick two day visit to Cologne - was one of the cheaper hotels in Cologne - yet still fairly expensive. Rooms are simple. Bathroom is practically in the same room. Was clean though. So no problem there. Beds were good. Free Wifi which is a rarity in German hotels.

Location is far from the main tourist attractions but near a train stop so it's okay, Meet standard expectations: clean, good mattress, strong shower, soap is available. Didn't have any problems there

Rooms clean and comfortable. No problems. Bit pricey but it was Xmas Market season. Parking next door was a bit muddy but free if you did not use hotel car park. Food in restaurant was good and arrived quickly. Will use again.

The ibis Koelnmesse is good for business trips to Cologne, Bonn and even Dusseldorf. Of course you are at the Koelnmesse fast but you can also reach the Autobahn and central Cologne by car or public transport fast. The rooms are clean and the beds feel comfortable and big. Bathrooms are built-in plastic cabins but I did not really mind... More

I find 175 Euros for an IBIS (breakfast not included!) very expensive but than I stayed during a trade show. The convenience of walking over to the fair ground in five mins. was really worth it for me. The rooms are typical Ibis style, no nonsense, small bathroom, spartanic bed and bedding, very basic toiletries. Small flat screen TV and... More

Like other reviewers I stayed first in the Ibis Budget next door. This was far superior for a number of reasons. Having read some of the other reviews I suspect it is hit and miss as to whether you enjoy a good experience but my stay was certainly a miss. The check in staff were abrupt and a little rude,...
