This is a backup review. On our return drive on our UK visit, we rested overnight in this hotel. Our last visit was good as was one. Very comfortable rooms and general facilities. Good breakfast next morning from 6.30 am. Secure underground parking at 8 euros a night. Good strong free Wifi. I will be using this hotel again. Highly...

The Ibis Koeln Messe is in a central location with easy transport links to other areas of Cologne. The room was comfortable however during our stay we had two days without hot water, the shower had hairs in it from the previous guests and some of the towels in the room appeared to be dirty. I quite often stay in...

Hotel was clean and we have no complaints about the food. However both the hotel and staff were characterless. No happy faces and service was at times very slow. The reception, bar and restaurant are all in one and there is very little comfortable seating to enjoy a drink. This is ideal for a one night business B&B, but not...

The hotel room was comfortable and quiet. Plus the buffet breakfast was good. Just still some difficulties to get a pass to the room that works every time. Need to go back to the reception to get the pass work again.

I visited Cologne last week for the PJ Harvey concert at the Palladium. And I didn't want to go all the way back home alone at night by train. So I searched for hotels that are affordable and close to the Palladium and a major train station. So IBIS KÖLN MESSE was perfect for me. It's affordable and walking distance...

You stay at an Ibis for only a few reasons, your company books it, you can't afford anywhere else, or everywhere else is full. It is what it is, its basic, the rooms are small, the bathroom a plastic pod that is stuck into the room. Don't go expecting to be able to swing your cat, or have a lot...

We stayed here during dmexco and locationwise it was close to perfect. Like a strong 10min walk to Deutz train station and a slow 10min walk to the fairground. The room was simple, small but clean and sufficient with one of those bathroom units built in. Bathroom was ok but felt a bit like an airplane toilet. Internet was good...

Good room size with basic amenities. No safe, no ref at the rooms though. Breakfast is the same..every.single.day. Tried asking for help from a front desk staff regarding the best...

“Rear rooms overlook an office block so not much noise. However, the road on the front is not a through road so not too much traffic”

“The rooms are very basic, so choosing a room for a great view does not apply as this hotel sits in an industrial area.”
