Stayed here for one night to split a journey through the Ruhr. It is a clean modern hotel about a 20 minute walk from the main railway station. The staff were helpful and pleasant. The free breakfast was good. Would gladly use it again if in this neck of the woods.

Holiday Inn Express Essen I have stayed at a number of HI Express across the US and i think that lead me to believe that the brand was equivalent to the Courtyard by Marriott- No sir. this hotel is a franchised motel. The bed linen was discolored, and rough, the towels in the bathroom are better used for washing cars... More

Rooms were great value for money - not big but perfect for a short overnight to get ready for MovieWorld - 20min drive away. Location brilliant - if you love cars or a spot of gadget shopping. Breakfast is very good - try to get there before 9 - otherwise its elbow time.

This was a break to our journey from Wolfenbuttel to Brugge, and was well worth stopping off. Patrick at the check in was very helpful, we stayed as a family of 4.

They don't charge the money like 5 star hotels..so don't expect 5 star comfort here...clean room with basic features..though little small in size..bathroom and toilet is relatively spacious.Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Lots of varieties in breakfast and everything is fresh. But one complaint..i like scrambled eggs more than boiled eggs..:-)

This hotel is very new, modern and clean. Friendly reception staff. Convenient underground parking. Good breakfast that's included in the room price. Free wifi is great. Decent location across from a park and just a few minutes from shopping - IKEA and a big shopping mall are very close. The rooms are typical European hotel size - very small. We... More

The first impression almost set the scene with the receptionist at first telling us we had only one suite when we had reserved two. She was a bit on the rude side but we decided to overlook since this is Germany. She finally found that we did indeed have two rooms. The rooms were a nice size and we did... More

Stayed here for a night and found this hotel to be good value. Staff was very friendly and room was good Holiday Inn standard with very comfortable beds. We did, however, miss a fridge/minibar, which would have been an added bonus but not a major issue. Breakfast was good, too. Overall definitely a nice hotel with great staff!
