Approached this one with some trepidation. Hotels close to Koelnmesse fill up to capacity very quickly for the Gamescom event in August and yet there was availability here just a few weeks before the event. Reviews suggested that the place was either pretty decent or else little better than a building site! First impressions when I got to the hotel were that the refurbishments were pretty much complete, though the first and second floors looked unfinished compared to the third where I stayed.
The reality is that my stay was perfectly fine. My room - though small and weirdly L-shaped - was perfectly comfortable, the room had recently been refurbished with a decent shower and vast flatscreen and the sound-proofing was decent. It needs to be as many of the rooms - including mine - back out onto the ICE railway line just metres away. However, I'm a really light sleeper yet had no problem sleeping at at all.
Breakfast was a standard buffet, service was fine. My only real criticisms were a non-functioning safe which I reported but was never fixed and the lack of a bath in the shower room. Koelnmesse is vast and after an exhausting day, a long soak would have been welcome. I had a single room and got a single bed. Fine for me but for larger people it could be a bit of a problem.
This hotel won't win any awards but it does the job just fine, the prices weren't too bad and it's a 10-15 minute walk from the Koelnmesse - if you have business there, the Ayun Hotel will work just fine for you.
