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.
