Hotel: You can drive past the hotel without even noticing it's there. It looks good from the outside and well maintained from the inside. You enter the hotel from the parking lot, it has a small lobby with friendly staff. Price: The price is low for what you get. Room: The room is big, even huge. It has everything you... More

The location is perfect, just at the underground tram station at near the city center. The rooms are spacious and breakfasts were rich. Free unlimited ticket for public transport including regional trains is very useful. Sauna is declared to be free as well but it was out of order. Wifi was fast and reliable.

Bear it in mind that City Hotel Essen is a *** hotel. Taking this and the room rate, my two-night stay was quite OK. Friendly staff, spacious room, decent breakfast with not a vide range of selection, but good qualiy. Room was quiet, windows sealed tightly and kept the noise of the traffic outside. Bed was comfortable, bathroom small, though... More

Welcome was friendly, room is very large, WIFI worked well, there are four small bottles in the Mini-Bar (2 Water, 1 Coke, 1 Fanta) and they are included in the room rate. Breakfast was o.K. Refrigerator is noisy and I had to pull the plug off to sleep.... More

I stayed in the City Hotel Essen for 5 nights in September 2014, as I was looking for a hotel close to the university, where my congress was being held. The location of the hotel is superb! A short walk or 2 metro stations away from the main station, it is really easy to reach. Just across the road is... More

Ok, I admit. The hotel doesn't look nice on the outside, and once inside the reception is the size of a small living room. Never mind the reception; checking in doesn't take more than a minute. German efficiency is here perfected. Then there is the room. An unbelievable large space, clean, and quite comfortable. The only minor issue I had... More

Very spacious, clean room. Pleasant reception staff. Convenient location in Essen center - walking distance to Kettwiger street for example, but you get a free pass to public transportation anyway. Be sure to take a city map at the lobby. Across the busy street there is a large cathedral, and a few pubs. Room windows are double glazed and seal... More

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
