Please don't stay at this hotel. It was booked through my company and we immediately realised the date was wrong. It was changed on the phone and confirmed by email. On the wrong date, my colleague was forced to pay for my room. I was allocated a room on the right date, though they didn't accept that I had changed... More

We stayed here for the ease of traveling between 2 nearby trade shows in Essen and Dusseldorf. My first impression of walking into the room wasn't a great one. The mirror behind the door fell off. Thankfully not cracked; although it would sum up the kind of general feeling we had after staying in this basic hotel. Next the bathroom........ More

As a business traveller staying in the area during a major trade show, the cost of my room was hugely inflated. It stunk of cigarette smoke. The general feel of the place was of a run down halls of residence! The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. The vending machine coffee and the fact that a colleague was charged for two... More

Everything was too much trouble for the proprietors of this hotel. They greeted us by barking about how my American Express (used to book the room) could not be used to actually pay for the hotel, and how we would need either cash or another credit card. The key fob that was quite weighty, had to be held onto in... More

This hotel was very good value for money. Breakfast very nice, staff very friendly and rooms very clean. We had a single room which was easily big enough for one. Quite location although it was Saturday night and there was a bar across the road which had quite a few football supporters in it. However, this is Germany and was... More

Hotel Brunnen is a good hotel considering the price. Rooms are quite spacious, breakfast is good and the coffee in the dining room is excellent (once you have figured out how to use the self service machine). Although the bar was not open at night, this was not much of a problem, as there are many pubs in the area.... More

We stayed in the Brunnen Hotel for six nights during the Spiel 2009 fair. Heating in the public areas and staircase was minimal. The room maid seemed to turn down the heating and did not close the windows whilst we were out. The room was freezing upon return.The room was clean and the shower was efficient. Mineral water was often... More
