Reviewed 16 August 2012

I traveled for work purposes, staying 5 nights (Sun-Thur), working with 5 others in an office 10 minutes walk/2 minutes drive away.

The hotel was standard Ibis type. Basic, but clean and spacious. There is a bar/restaurant, no pool or fitness/wellness centre.

Location wise, although it is called "Ibis Cologne Airport", it is in fact abut 7Km from the airport, although only one stop away on the Stadt-Bahn light railway (station 5 minutes walk from the hotel). It is 3 stops (8 mins) to the Cologne central station by the Cathedral. There is a KFC nearby, but not much else - you are on an industrial estate on the outskrts of the city.

The room was good size, obviously fairly new, all fittings in good condition, and kept spotlessly clean. I couldn't really get it cool enough for my comfort when sleeping, even with the air-con set to the lowest it would go, I still kicked off the duvet.

You have to pay for a WiFi connection in the room, but the connection to the internet was still very slow indeed for me. Just about acceptable for emails and light browsing with not much in the way of images, but no use for trying to watch videos of the Olympics (which were on while I was there).

Breakfast was continental style buffet, but with scrambled eggs also available. A decent start to the day.

The menu for the restaurant in the evening was quite limited and very heavy on meat an potatoes - I didn't find enough to have a different meal I actually wanted to eat on each of the five nights. And for the one vegetarian in our group, it was VERY limited, and they also kept forgetting he was Vegetarian. One evening he asked if he could order the mushroom soup (normally part of one option on the menu) separately. They said no, but they could bring him a salad. When he said OK, they turned up with a salad that included bacon! And refused to take it back until we kicked up a real fuss (This is the main reason I have marked down the service).

Apart from the salad incident, service was generally pleasant and reasonably efficient.

Clean room and comfortable bed. We used this as a stop over while traveling to Poland. Super location right off the autobahn. Only complaint would be limited parking when arriving late in the evening.

Room Tip: Although it was very clean there were spider webs in the corners of the ceiling. We waited at the re...

Well up to the standard of Ibis hotels. Ideally located for the airport and close to a local railway station. Good, clean room and, as usual, a decent choice of menu for breakfast.

Ok, so with IBIS you expect a certain level of, how shall I say it, frugality.

Not so much frugality with this hotel - the room is satisfactory (clean, nice bed, sufficient pillows, good shower).

I arrived late at night, was dealt with in an extremely efficient and friendly manner (which suits my needs) and I even managed to sneak in a quick Weissbier (it would be rude not to!)

It was a great location with easy access to the main roads and the price - it was very good!

Book it when you next need a stopover in and around Koln.

Room Tip: Ask for a few more pillows - they can be a little bit on the flat side (more like a cushion)
