“Good place to stay if you have to get the train early”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Nice hotel, but usually fully booked during some fairs and exhibitions in Duesseldorf. Unfortunately the price in this period raises up to the price of 4* hotel. However, in such time 4* hotels become double of that :)
Nice hotel, clean with tiny rooms. If you are alone and just want to sleep, the room is perfect. More than 1 person in the room means crowd. I was surprised that there is a free WiFi in the hotel. It looks that something is changing in Germany :) Breakfast OK, worth to spend just EUR10 for it.

It's perhaps 15 years since I last stayed here, but i had to book a single night stop in Cologne and travelling by train, so this was an easy location to pick.

A very helpful team on reception had me checked in in minutes and I was given room 300. Room 300 is a twin bedded room, but because the room is very narrow the beds are placed head to head rather than side by side. Even stranger was that the bedside lights were located beyond the foot of the bed and because they were fixed to the wall there wasn't a way of changing the layout. There wasn't too much natural light into the room as the window, in keeping with the room, was quite narrow. The en-suite layout was good, including hairdryer, but there was little water power in the shower; really disappointing.

Breakfast was the usual Ibis tray, but the coffee machine had run out of milk, the orange juice had also emptied and the cereal milk tasted off too. The staff have only to keep the machines topped up and the tables cleared, but had to be asked!

Room Tip: Assuming rooms 100 & 200 layout as room 300 I'd suggest avoiding those rooms

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

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.
