Single rooms are ok

Customer review rating 3.5/5

S. Solo - 22/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great location near the nightlife. I booked a single room which was ok. A big bed in a small room didn't leave much space for anything else. The rooms and bathrooms are nice though with modern furnishings and a good shower.

Great location, would use again

The stay at Ibis Koln City it was very good! The staff is very helpful and welcome with you at the check in and for any assistance. Rooms are very essential and clean. Bathroom is very small but for a short stay should be enough.

Dear guest, thank you for sharing your experience in our hotel with Trip Advisor. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again. Best regards, Claudia Kreutzkampf

lightning realy too cold, lightning of 2700° should be used to create a more cosy atmosphere. Nice furniture is not so expensive, you could add a little drawing or painting in the rooms to make them look more warm and welcoming. I had the impression that i was in a hospital room.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We hope to welcome you back to our hotel very soon! Sincerely,

All was very good. Hotel personell very helpful and competent. My room nr 702 was very clean. The room was actually small so I was hot at night, I think air climatization would be a good addendum.

Voyage32991596607 Business - 10/11/2019 TripAdvisor review

The wifi connection is very slow, even though the room was huge. The room in the 0 floor was big .. but next to the containers so was getting the lights from the trucks removing containers at first hour in the morning.

Wrong reservation but quickly solved

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Anonymous Families - 30/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

We booked a family room for 4 Persons, and received a room for 3. The reception promptly gave us a bigger room (W1) with a lot of space and very comfortable but situated on -1 beneath the coffee room. This made it kind of noisy in the evening and in the morning.

Room was functional but not comfortable or welcoming. The breakfast staff were nice and friendly though the breakfast selection was quite small. Compared to a previous Accor hotel we stayed in (in Köln) for a similar price, the Ibis was definitely a budget hotel experience.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Could you tell us wthat was missing for the breakfast, so that we can improve our breakfast. Sincerely, Ibis Styles Köln City Team

Cool hotel in an uber-cool town

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

965rezar Solo travel - 15/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

Really enjoyed my weekend stay here, just about every box that I care about was ticked and I was particularly impressed with the staff who were helpful and very friendly. The location is perfect to get to the fun places I wanted to explore but this is probably the one point to be aware of: if you are looking for a quiet night's sleep you might be disappointed at the weekend as there is plenty of partying going on around the place. Finally, I felt the hotel was terrific value for money. Will return soon, for certain!

Nice hotel stay in Cologne

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

fabiocasallanovo Family - 14/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is located in front of the trams stops, from where one canal easily go to the city center, the Central Train Station and one can even take the tram to Bonn or other neighboring towns if you plan to use Cologne as you base (Tram 16 can take you to Bonn). The rooms were cozy and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good. There are nice restaurants in the vicinity. I would stay there again.

basic good hotel with good location to visit the city

Family room given at basement- extremely hot

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

rumela2019 Family - 17/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

We were given the family room for three adults at the basement. There was no window. It was extremely hot. The temperature controller could not be lowered below 20 degrees. It was so hot during the night we could not sleep the whole night and had to stay awake. We also felt extremely suffocated as there was no air flow at all. The reception told us while checking in that it is the only room they could give us. But while booking it wasnt mentioned that the family rooms wont have any windows. It was nightmarish. Only good thing was the breakfast in the morning. I wont advise anyone to book a family room there.

Dear Guest, thanks for your review. We are sorry that you were not satisfied with stay in our hotel. That day we had problems with our air conditions and we had no chance to change the rooms, because of the problem some rooms were out of order. Unfortunately the rooms were very warm. All other family rooms have windows, so we would be happy to welcome you again in our hotel. Best regards C.Kreutzkampf

alessandrasC1067TA Solo travel - 16/11/2017 TripAdvisor review

lil expensive for what it is, i guess it is mostly for the location. great bed though. things are a little high to reach on the bathroom for short people. some furniture do not make sense, a bit too many mirrors

Pleasant and value for money

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

benybell Business - 11/09/2017 TripAdvisor review

Convenient central location, close to a lively district with bars and pubs. The hotel looks newly renovated. Its lobby is nicely decorated, breakfast area is pleasant and food selection at breakfast is very good. However, the rooms are small, bathrooms as well, and overall rooms miss some theming or decoration. I'd choose the property again, for its location, cleanliness and friendliness of staff, but only for a short sleepover.

NeelakantanR Family - 23/08/2017 TripAdvisor review

Right in the middle of all facilities such as public transportation and Restaurants. There was initially confusion over the available room but cleared later. We did not get a parking space - need to book it in advance. Hotel is clean and well mainttained. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast spread was good and fresh. Continental and no english. The service crew were effizient and friedly.

Dear guest, thanks for sharing your experience in our hotel with TripAdvisor. It is always a pleasure to read that our guests enjoy their stay with us. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back soon at the ibis Styles Köln. Best regards

one night business trip

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

svensF1616RZ Business - 19/02/2017 TripAdvisor review

friendly welcome, even though it was quite a trip to reach the parking garage behind the hotel, it worked and it was then only a few steps to reach the hotel by foot. Nice friendly room with good space, comfortable bed and good size TV. Bathroom was on the smaller side, however, I have seen much smaller. Building was poorly sign proofed, so in the morning I could follow all the steps in the room above, in the hall and down the staircase ......
