Ultra ConvenientPosted Jun 29, 2015
It's an Ibis. It does what it does. Clean. No frills. For a visit to Cologne, not sure you could do much better. Staff excellent...

Good, but.....Posted Jun 27, 2015
The hotel was fine. You get what you pay for. Simple basic comfort. Unbeatable location. Connected to Köln Hauptbahnhof. But the front desk person (Alexandra) was very rude. She shouldn't be working in the service industry. She clearly didn't want to 'deal' with guests.

Noise overnightPosted May 29, 2015
Pros: The room was clean but basic,the reception staff warm and courtious,the breakfast value for money
Location: Next to cathedral,railway station and town centre
My room overlooked the square next to the cathedral.This was situated next to a taxi rank and entrance to railway station.A gathering of people below the window into the early hours was somewhat of an irritation.

Not what was expectingPosted May 25, 2015
The hotel is just a. Few steps from the Dome ( which is great) but at the same time the outside is dirty with all kinds of people. The room is tiny, the bathroom like a ship bathroom. We did not have breakfast there. (11 euros). No safe in the room which made us concerned because the location of the hotel.

Convenient, place to sleepPosted May 5, 2015
Pros: Location was great!
Cons: Rooms need a bit of an update, bathroom didn't feel clean.
Hotel close to the station and everything great to see in Cologne! But was just a very basic room (tiny bathroom) and the bathroom didn't feel the cleanest. Hotel lobby and breakfast area have been remodelled but rooms are older and very basic. Everything was comfortable enough and the breakfast was good. Very convenient location.

Convenient location by main station and cathedralPosted Apr 28, 2015
Pros: Its location.
Cons: Tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. Hand towels and larger bath towels.
Location: The beautiful Cathedral, the Rhine and the shopping precincts with restaurants are all close at hand.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The room had a lovely view over the main square by the cathedral and with the windows closed, was reasonably quiet at night. It was a bit disappointing that there were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room. Also, the supply of shower gel and toilet roll was minimal and ran out the first night, although was replenished the second day. The bath towels were far too small and no hand towels provided. However, the room was a reasonable size, clean and comfortable and the hotel very conveniently located.

Close to main railway stationPosted Jun 28, 2014
Pros: Location so close to main station.
Cons: We were happy with what we got for the rate paid.
Location: Right in the middle of town with shopping and sightseeing close at hand.
Excellent reception. We had access to our room at 11.00am when we arrived from south of Germany. Although we had booked through Expedia he had no record of our arrival but it wasn't a problem and he gave us Expedia's rate which was cheaper than his daily rate.

Central location and good valuePosted Mar 11, 2012
As we were travelling around Europe by rail, the location of the Ibis Koeln Am Dom within the Hauptbanhof was very convenient. Staff were pleasant and helpful, the room (typical Ibis) was comfortable, clean and well maintained, and the buffet breakfast offered a wide choice. The central location allows very close views of the Dom, and exploration of the old town. Only downside was WiFi in the room incurred a charge.
