“Great hotel! Worth the money.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

This hotel was great.
The price was right, the location was amazing (you could jump on a train(tram?) by just walking for 5minutes to the nearest station, and from there you could go almost anywhere.

The breakfast was great, 10euros for an all you can eat breakfast (and they had a lot to choose from) was spectacular.

If you wish to visit Koln, be sure to think about this hotel, it's prices are low, and the travelling possibilities are great.

The hotel was perfect for are weekend stay,very peaceful and just across the Rhine to the city. The hotel was very clean and the staff very helpful.The underground car park was perfect to take your bags straight to the car from the hotel ,out of the lift and your there,very good for disabled people.And very secure and only 8 euros for 24 hours.I would recommend this hotel to everyone,if your going to the Xmas market this hotel is ideal.

We stayed on the 3rd floor. The room was smallish, but very clean. Breakfast was an extra 10 Euro each,which we opted not to get as it seemed pretty pricey for what you get. The staff were very nice and spoke English well. There was free wireless in the lobby (you need to pay extra if you want to use it in your room). The hotel was about a 20-25 minute walk to the cathedral, with not very many sights to see on the way there.

I would definitely stay at an Ibis again as it was good value for the price of the room. However, this location was a little too far from the main sights.

Doubtless busy when there is a trade fair on at the nearby Messe, but otherwise quiet and convenient with a direct connection from the nearby Deutz station to Cologne-Bonn airport and only a short distance away from Köln city centre across the iconic Hohenzollernbrücke

I statyed at the Ibis Koeln Messe for two nights. I found the hotel very clean and all that a traveller would require. The staff were more than helpful and understood perfect English. That I think is the most important requirement from any hotel staff or chain. I always stay in the Ibis chain, Dublin, Barcalona, Athens, France and others. This chain of hotels is very reasonable and comes up to a standard that one would expect. I would recomend this to anyone without any resivation. R.C.Spanswick Worthing

The rooms are VERY small, especially the bathroom. Sounds from other rooms and hallway easily heard through the wall/door. Pay for wifi, and basically had to beg for an iron. Ended up just hanging my shirts in the bathroom while I showered.

Overall, this is low budget and not great. But the room was fairly clean and everything that was there worked. This was fine for business for a couple of days, but any longer than that and I would choose elsewhere. Given that there was a trade fair going at the Messe, this was my only option. Otherwise, at 200 Euro a night I would normally choose something else.

Situated 10 minutes from Cologne Messe S-Bahn station and less than 5 from the Exhibition Centre itself, this hotel is perfect for business travelers. We were there Saturday night and with good weather were able to walk downtown in under 20 minutes (across the main rail bridge into town) so if you are fit this place is a good alternative to staying directly in the centre.
As you'd expect the rooms are sparse, basic but the bed was very comfy and the bathroom (like a modern portacabin placed in the corner) had everything you need for a short stay.
The area is very quiet on the weekend (no exhibition traffic) and the rooms were well insulated so we heard nothing from the neighbours (assuming there were any) or outside.
