PDorin 09/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

Very clean IBIS hotel, relatively close to the downtown of the city - a nice walk - with a safe parking place. The COVID measures are in place as well. The hotel's staff been very supportive so for sure I'll stay here next time.

Your satisfaction is the best reward for me and my colleagues, who work day after day to provide you with impeccable service. I would especially like to thank you for your kind feedback about me.

Hotel locked in the night for no reason

Customer review rating 0.5/5

Amélie Couples - 03/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

My partner went out and came back at the hotel at 5am, where he found the main entrance door locked. He was unable to access the patio in which his room card should normally be used. He spent 30mins trying to get in before giving up and calling me downstairs. As I opened the door, the clerk who was on night shift came out to see what was happening: so that means, there was someone whose job it is to open the doors but who just didn't do it. The clerk did not offer a word of apology. This is unacceptable - nowhere it is written that the hotel closes at night.

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to rate your stay with us. We are very sorry that you had such inconveniences with us. Of course, such a thing should not be. We have already taken all measures to sensitize our employees in this sense - do not hesitate to contact us on site, so that we can quickly remedy the situation. It is very important to us to satisfy you again. We would therefore be very pleased to welcome you again in the future. Translated with (free version)

decent price but Room could do with a few small amenities

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Anonymous Solo - 24/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Had some trouble checking in at first due to needing a negative test. I had checked beforehand (on and on the day of traveling there were no extra measures for traveling from NL. So I was surprised to hear this on arrival. I understand that rules may rapidly change in these times but when questioning the receptionist on when did the aforementioned go into effect I couldn't get a coherent answer unfortunately. Got there in the end via a negative test around the corner. The room is descent but could do with stuff like tissue boxes and in days of mobile phones the power socket would preferably a bit closer to the bed. Other than that the room is decent for what you pay and the hotel is well situated for those traveling by car.

no sleep

The Elevator was too loud, i wasn't able to sleep until 01:30am and was awake at 06:00am

Perfect for a business stop-over

Stephan Business - 19/08/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I was surprised that the rooms were so large, clean and well designed. The hotel does a lot to keep people safe from CORONA and their team is friendly.

Good room, Covid-19 system in place.

Maureen E Couples - 25/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

This is a very nice hotel , friendly staff etc.I found the bar menu very limited & on the second night the restuarant was closed for maintenance leaving little choice, there had been no information regarding this when we went out. As the hotel is situated on the right side of the river there is nothing in the locality, for elderly people it meant taking a taxi to go out.

Problems with elevator!

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

RudolfK204 Business - 09/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

Everything was fine, but the elevator key is a desaster. Nearly evertime was a problem to unlook the elevator. Also they had to change the key, but it didnt get better. They should think about changing something!

Great stay at nice hotel good value for money!

MirkaAW Couples - 02/08/2018 TripAdvisor review

Nice and friendly staff. Nice smiles and good communication, all of them very helpful and willing to do their best. Clean room, comfy beds. Bathroom ok. Aircondition a bit loud but well functioning. Nearby to the city center. Quiet and peaceful area. Overall a good stay!

Perfect stay for a busy weekend in beautiful Cologne!

Rodolfo C Solo travel - 15/07/2018 TripAdvisor review

This hotel is near to the Messe (Exposition Center) of Cologne and some 3/4 km from the center but it is easily reachable with the metro and great location for its price. Perfect for busy weekend as the CSD Pride weekend.

Nice place to be for Business stay

erich75015 Business - 18/06/2018 TripAdvisor review

Very nice location, Breakfast in the standard of IBIS quality, so you will find what you like. Bed are very confortable and new. Just a remark, TV is too small, better to watch TV program on my smartphone if I am in bed.

No Sleep possible

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

633frederiquem Business - 03/02/2018 TripAdvisor review

227 € for a room next to the elevator, impossible to sleep before 2am and after 5am. I understand it was probably the last room available but the rate should be adjusted in this case and at least I could have been warned before confirming the reservation at this rate

You know what you’re getting

Albie-on-tour Family - 14/12/2017 TripAdvisor review

Typical Ibis hotel, fast and friendly service too. Only 10mins walk from Köln Messe Station, so convenient to town. My only gripe with the rooms is the lack of power plugs, I could only find 1 halfway up a wall near the bathroom (besides the shaver socket in the bathroom).

PMR expo 2017

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

gaza1962 Business - 03/12/2017 TripAdvisor review

Cologne is a fantastci city on the Rhine, the cathedral is a must!. Bis Messe is a very comfortable hotel within 5 minute walk to Messe expo hall. Good value for money restuarant and nice German beers.
