Positive Reviews

On the right side of the Rhine...

Though many travellers book the ibis Koeln Messe for visiting the trade fairs or an event at Laxness Arena, guests also find that the hotel is close enough to the city centre for a day's sightseeing. Many enjoy the walk over the bridge into the old town to see the Cathedral and the shops, and for most it takes about 20 minutes. You can also get there in half the time on the tram.

Clean, modern, no nonsense rooms...

The freshly renovated rooms at the Ibis Koeln Messe are generally described as very clean, quiet, and comfortable, with modern decor, comfortable beds, and fast, reliable free wi-fi. Drivers find the parking lot is a good size, easy to navigate and reasonably priced.

Breakfast has something for everyone...

The breakfast buffet earns high marks for quality and variety. Guests with special dietary needs are delighted to see lactose-free milk and gluten-free bread. The staff are also widely praised for their hospitality and professional customer service.

Negative Reviews

Nobody's perfect...

Though the staff receives many positive reviews, several guests have found the reception staff to be professional but not particularly warm and friendly.

Tiny bathrooms...

The newly renovated rooms feature the "pod-like" bathrooms for which the chain is increasingly becoming known, and some guests just cannot get comfortable in them.

Simple is as simple does...

Some couples travelling together are annoyed to find very few well located electrical outlets, and find they need to take turns charging their devices. Others are dismayed by the lack of tea or coffee facilities and mini fridges in the rooms.
