I stayed at theCity Hotel Essen for one night in April 2015. 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

Found this hotel purely by chance and was very lucky. It has a great location near to town centre. Really helful staff, a very spacious room with great double bed, table and chairs and also a desk with a proper desk chair. Very large flat screen TV Even though our room was on the side nearest the very large junction... 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

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
