Ibis Styles Koeln City
Ranked #102 of 262 Hotels in Cologne
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Good location, only a few tram stops from the city centre. Hotel was average, room for 3 was very small. For €110 a night we were expecting 2 double beds, but got 1 and a very hard pull down bed. Breakfast was basic and waitress not very helpful, we asked for more croissants (only 1left for 3 us) but she said that there were none this was 8.30 am and breakfast was served until 10. Not great value for money, but ok for a few nights.

Stayed 2 nights in December 2013 primarily to visit Cologne's Christmas markets. Was ok to find from the highway with the help of sat nav, some one-way roads & tram lines nearby so need to be a bit careful. Check-in friendly & gave directions to hotel's car park at the rear of the hotel - this is secure but small - I beleieve there is alternative parking nearby.
We chose a bigger room which was located at the end of the corridor overlooking the rear of the hotel which meant it was quiet. Also could open the window which cooled the room when necessary. Room was basic but clean & fine for a short stay.
Breakfast was adequate to start the day off, the staff worked tirelessly to restock & clear tables. The breakfast area is at the rear of the lobby and is a little small when the hotel is busy.
Location is great to access the city, a short-ish walk and an even shorter tram/train ride, with the stop at the front door of the hotel, 2 lines to serve different parts of the city. For snacks, there is a McDonalds opposite, a bakery almost next door and a supermarket 5 mins away. All in all the Ibis served its purpose very well.

Due that Dusseldorf was heavily overpriced for a fair, we booked that hotel by a travel agency.
Normally I don't like to stay at the ibis hotel chain, knowing the rooms are too small. Here the same, shower is super small.
However, it's very clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful, big selection for breakfast.
So basically, when you just need a bed, Wi-Fi and breakfast and don't expect too much it's fine

Stayed here for 1 night for business.

Doors and walls are flimsy so you can hear every bit of noise.

People were inconsiderate being extremely noisy and stupid times of the night and day.

Awful and I hope I never have to stay here ever again.

Small and extremely simple, Ikea-styled rooms including a bed, small desk, chair and small tv. Location is great, only 15min walk to the city center. You can find free parking on weekends nearby.

During our stay the breakfast was a disaster since there were way too many people, not enough tables, food or staff. A lot of people were just waiting around for someone to leave the tiny breakfast room and when they did, no one cleaned up the plates and garbage of the previous diners. In Germany hotel breakfast isn't even that important to have because at every corner you normally find a bakery serving amazing sandwiches and coffee! Basically with the same money you can get a much better hotel without breakfast and then just walk around the corner to a bakery without any fuss.
