Hotel is located walking distance from Essen train station. Altough the hotel is nearby, it's still on "wrong" side of the station compared to the downtown. There's nothing much nearby the hotel if you want to eat something else than at the hotel restaurant. Alleys smell anoyingly of cigarette smoke. Really good parking hall if you're travelling by car.

Good place for Dusseldorf trade show visitors, convenient entrance and exit to the city. the hotel is located in a quiet place, yet close to the center of Essen, restaurants and shopping (Galeria kaufhof).

Easy access from the train station. Efficient and courteous staff. Excellent breakfast buffet. Quiet rooms overlooking the courtyard. Had to pay 9 Euro/day for wifi access which I felt was a bit out of date but free access to the hotel computer helped.good room service, very clean and cozy rooms.

The hotel decor is circa 1980s so despite large rooms it is quite basic. However, we spent less than twelve hours here and for purposes it did he job. We had a balcony but we were connected to other rooms so it was not private. We are Accor members and there was no Sofitel. This is perhaps fairly 'no frills'... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and were very pleased with the overall service received. We had a small problem with the set up of our room and went back to reception to explain. Within minutes everything was rectified. Breakfast was very nice and offered a good choice of food. We ate outside every morning and enjoyed the... More

I stayed here for four nights in July. The hotel is clean and the bed is very comfort. There is a beautiful and small size pool in 3rd floor, it is free for guests and you can enjoy swimming although you should pass few corridors to reach it(a bit like a maze!). Do not remember to bring a 1 Euro... More

Friendly staff,comfortable rooms, clean and a wonderful breakfast accompanied by a pianist. Our room the first night smelled like fresh polished furniture, but they gladly changed us. The staff helped me find info of things that i needed. Did not have noise problems,although my room was on the main street.

The Mercure Plaza in Essen is a very coney hotel. Not far from the train station, though if you carry two pieces of luggage take a taxi (less than 10€ to the hotel). Room was spacious and very quiet, facing the backyard of a church. It is located close to the main street for restaurants (Ruttensheider Strasse), where you have... More
