Nice budget hotel in the train station. Could not fault service and cleanliness of room. Great view of the Dom too which was a nice surprise. For convenience to the station, you can't beat it!! Would not hesitate to stay here again, although for the size of the rooms you wouldn't want to be overly large or with too many bags!

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights after we had flown into Koln Airport, location wise it is superb in that it is actually in the Hbf so a short 15 min train journey from the airport and you are checking in. Rooms are small but functional after all it is Ibis, but it was clean. We had paid for breakfast in advance as we really only had the Saturday to explore Koln as we had a train to catch Sunday morning and didn't want to waste time searching for breakfast. The breakfast room was very nice with a superb view of the Cathedral, and breakfast was the usual selection of cereals, meats cheeses breads etc and was good.
There was free wifi in the reception area which suited our needs, there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but there are plenty of places in the Hbf to get drinks etc. Staff were friendly enough
Whilst the hotel generally would attract an average rating , the location is the key as there is no searching about to find the hotel as is in the Hbf and next to the Cathedral

Stayed: August 2013, traveled as a couple

Was not able to get a decent sleep during my stay, maybe due to the two available options: noise from the outside or overheated room when the windows are closed. Room itself is typical Ibis arrangement, and I won't comment on this (like it or not). Room was clean. Location itself is great for tourists and rooms have a view on the Köln Dom.

The provided Wireless? Just forgot about it, it's a very very bad joke. Unusable most of the time, many sites simply unreachable (when they can be reached via other networks), terribly slow, one to two minutes to get the login page.

Also this hotel charges you on arrival, and not on departure, practice more and more common which I do hate.

Front desk is not particularly welcoming, and when they smoke their cigarettes they should avoid to have all the smoke enter the reception hall, it is disgusting.

I would definitely not return there unless there's no choice.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be facing the outside with view on the Dom, so noisy anyway.

Over in Koeln for the Germany Ireland football match. The fact that we just walked off our hotel and straight into the rooms was a massive bonus. The view out the front over the square was impressive. The Cathedral being within a minute or so walking distance was also ideal. Visit the Cathedral early to avoid the large crowds of visitors later in the day. I also strongly recommend taking the walk to the top of the Cathedral. It is a tough climb though with over 500 stone steps in a spiral staircase and a further couple of flights of metal steps. Again it is best visited in the morning before the larger crowds arrive.
Back to the hotel itself the actual check in was simple and efficient. Rooms were clean tidy but basic. The cleaning staff seemed pleasant enough and the majority of staff spoke great English. We did not eat i the hotel s there was so much variety outside. The hotel does not really have a public bar area but the receptionist will gladly sell you a late night beer from their fridges.

If staying in Cologne for a short time and you are travelling by train you won't be able to stay somewhere more convenient than this. Typical Ibis hotel, basic but clean and comfortable, with friendly staff. The cathedral is right outside the front door and you can enter the train station directly from the lobby.
Not dirt cheap (103 euro for 1 night, booking on their website) but not bad value either.
