“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

A group of us stayed here for one night while visiting Cologne. We were there to see a concert at the Underground which was about a ten minute taxi ride from the hotel. I would stay here again, as the location is amazing you are literally right next to the Dom, the Hauptbahnhof is directly behind the hotel, and there are plenty of restaurant options around. Also surrounded by museums and other touristy things. I would say skip the breakfast as it wasn't worth the 10 Euro and just go to the Starbucks next door. Also there is a McDonald's around the corner and plenty of cafes by the river. Nice basic room, suited our needs for a one night stay. Our room faced the street and was a bit noisy, but was what I expected for staying downtown on a Saturday night.

this hotel is within the main Koln train Station, but is not worth payment Euros 150/night. rooms are small, but reasonable and clean. temperature was not comfortable for sleeping, and had to open room windows, and due to which a lot of outside noise came in and was very disturbing. breakfast was good and staff was good and helpful

Very easy to get to and couldn't be more centrally located.
Reasonably priced. Clean.
Breakfast was good although the scrambled eggs were pretty congealed.
Only negatives are that the rooms are quite small and hot (AC did not seem to work in our room) so needed to have the windows open.
Quite noisy outside - late night revellers, hooting taxis and 2 lots of church bells - take earplugs!
Great for a weekend break with mates on a stag-do but I wouldn't take the wife there for a romantic weekend!

As we were travelling around Europe by rail, the location of the Ibis Koeln Am Dom within the Hauptbahnhof was very convenient. Staff were pleasant and helpful, the room (typical Ibis) was comfortable, clean and well maintained, and the buffet breakfast offered a wide choice. The central location allows very close views of the Dom, and exploration of the old town. Only downside was WiFi in the room incurred a charge.

This hotel was so convenient for the station, Ideal for just arriving after a long journey with a heavy suitcase, and also for getting about and seeing Cologne. Staff were extremely helpful, rooms clean and comfortable. We had views of the Dom and the main square with all the taxis from the window. It was rather noisy but that comes with the location. The breakfast scored 10/10 - loads of choice of cheeses, meats etc and the breakfast room was very comfortable.

Read lots of location of this hotel how 'near' to train station. Actually, I knows it's inside the station, but not really foresee how inside could be.
After I and my wife drag 2 bags down elevator, we asks people for information desk. Walk 25 meters then turn left, seeing information sign. During the way to information desk, here we go I reached hotel back entrance even before info desk!!!
Never been here, but definitely my highlight is the Dom. I heard it's 'nearby', but again how close that can be. After check-in, I go out of front door to have a smoke. Here we go again. The Dom is just right there. So, I could look at it when I come down from room to smoke.
The Room: I stayed in 412. Room is Ibis style: compact (european standard) and basic but clean comfortable and sufficient. Though, not recommend 4th Fl, as elevator stop at only 3rd Fl.
Staff is helpful and be there all the time.
Food: another important factor not mentioned frequently. as hotel is 'inside' busy train station. there are lots of fast food restaurant, Germanese, Asian, Pasteries, Burger (Mc and King). There are also few convenience store like FarmHaus where you could find all groceries you need. This is a big plus for me (as it has Asian cuisine here).
