This hotel was very good - clean, modern, functional - everything you would expect from an Ibis.
As we had also arrived by car, it was good to know that there was a secure, underground car park, easily accessible and not too expensive for our 2 night stay.
The staff were, on the whole, very friendly, apart from when we arrived, as the receptionist who checked us in had a bit of a surly attitude and was not very friendly or helpful in explaining where to park and how and when to pay. Luckily, by the time we had parked the car and returned to the reception, she had been replaced by an altogether more smiley, friendly and helpful receptionist and from that moment on, we had no more issues with the helpfullness and approachability of the staff.
The hotel was a bit out of the centre of Cologne, about a 25 minute walk, but this ensured that it was very quiet and not at all noisy.
It is hotel I would definitely stay at again if we come back to Cologne.
