I have stayed in a few Ibis hotels before, and this one is further down the list of good places to stay. Whilst the name suggests that it is very central, it is a good 20+ minute walk from the main centre. The hotel is currently under a refurbishment so I appreciate that I probably did not see it at it's full potential. However, there was no air conditioning, and there was some building noise when you opened the window. Having said that, the staff were friendly and helpful and the value for money was good.

Dear Hotel Guest, Thank you for your review, which helps us to constantly improve ourselves. My stay was in the middle of our renovation of the public areas. My impression gained by no means corresponds to the standard of Ibis Cologne Centrum Hotel. Complained about the points I will discuss with the concerned departments.

From 15 August shine our restaurant, bar, lobby, reception and the new launch in a stylish design.

We would appreciate if you use our service at your next visit to Cologne again in the future.

With kind regards

i.V. Gordon Kleebaum, Director

We did a road trip from one end of Germany to the other using ibis hotel's and found them all to be very good but this one ( although was up to the usual standard) the rooms are a bit small but the location was excellent very good for seeing cologne.

I would recommend this hotel to those who are going to Cologne for business only.

The hotel is not bad at all - clear, tidy and the price relatively good. It is 3 minutes walk from the nearest train station (Barbarossaplatz) and walking distance to Neu Market and to the Dom Hbf area (15-20 minutes walk). The best part is, it is close to Zulpicher Strasse, which has a lot of restaurants and bars for locals! I during my stay I tried to stay away from the Dom area, where there are a lot of tourist traps.

What the hotel is missing is the joy feeling towards it. The room is so practical that I don't find myself enjoying my room. There is a tv, and a desk, and that's about it. No extra decoration that makes you feels a bit pampering.

First night there was a thursday night so before 8am the next morning there were people walking around/showering/getting ready for work from the floor above. It's laminated flooring so you do hear every steps your neighbour above made. For someone who doesn't speak/read German, the Do not disturb sign was not very intuitive - we ended up having someone knocking on our door 3 times in the morning thinking we need the room made (oops).

There is no free wifi in the room (cost extra) but free wifi in the lobby. Breakfast was extra 10 euro/ person so we didn't go for it.

It's a good and clean budget hotel so please don't have too much expectation!

Room Tip: It is right next to a major road but they have sound proof window...so it doesn't really matter...

The Ibis Cologne Centrum is a brief U-bahn ride from the Koln Hauptbahnhof and about a 10-minute walk from Neumarkt. Even the walk to the cathedral (and the Hauptbahnhof nearby) is very pleasant, especially given the many pedestrian esplanades in the center of the city.

The hotel itself is well maintained in standard Ibis style. The breakfast was quite good, including eggs (boiled and scrambled), a variety of meats and cheeses, fruits, cereals, and some very nice pastries. All in all, this hotel is a very good value in a very good location convenient to the center.
