We booked the room for 1 night. We was here one time before and I liked it at our first visit. Nothing changed. Extreme friendly staff, helpful and in good mood. The room was big enough to move, some hotels have so small rooms that u have to struggle your way around the bed. Not so here. Bathroom is a... More

I've stayed at the City Hotel Essen in February 2014 for a business trip/Trade Fair in Düsseldorf. The price was pretty OK, the rooms had a very good size, the cleaning quality was good, the staff was very helpful and the restaurant had a very good selection of breakfast. The elevator was very slow and you couldn't walk from the... More

Looks a bit old fashioned on the out and inside but nevertheless good price quality. My room was HUGE! Nice staff, they were very helpful. Good location in the center, 5-10 min walk from the shopping mall, they give a free public transport ticket, good wifi, free minibar, decent breakfast buffet German style.

A tram station just outside the hotel combined with the free public transport ticket provided by the hotel makes this just perfect. You can get to the hotel from the railway station in a few minutes and it is conveniently close to the restaurants/cafes/bars/clubs of the center to walk to. The breakfast is typical for German hotels, but as it... More

A few weeks ago I was at a gig in Essen, backstage with the band, and had my computer case c/w laptop, passport, spectacles, razor and other personal accoutrements stolen - one minute it was there, the next it had gone. Luckily my son was able to lock my laptop remotely from the UK (thank goodness for Apple software) and... More

This hotel is at the other end of the shopping centre from the Hauptbanhof. It is about 10 minutes walk from the station or a couple of stops on the tram. It is very convenient for the University and for shopping. It was also very good value and they included a free local transport pass that allowed unlimited access to... More

I stayed here while attending a conference at Duisburg-Essen University. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the campus. It was very clean and comfortable, although my room was quite small, and also it looked over the main road, which made it very noisy. The really annoying thing was that one could only access the ground floor and... More

Though the outside may look "questionable" to Americans, the inside was very nice. Excellent service by friendly staff; delicious complimentary breakfast; clean; spacious. We spent a week here while my husband was in the area for business and it is very well located to a large, nice shopping district & several historic buildings worth seeing--all within easy walking distance. We... More
