The crystal structure of the title compound, (C8H9NH3)2[NiCl2(H2O)4]Cl2·2H2O, was determined at 100 K. The nickel(II) ion is surrounded by an octahedron in which four water molecules and two Cl atoms are coordinated. These freestanding octahedra form a hydrogen-bonding network with the ammonium group of the 2-phenylethylammonium cations and the solvent water molecules and chloride ions. This results in sheets of freestanding octahedra alternating with layers of organic material.
