I stayed at Essen as all the hotels in Dusseldorf were completely sold out during my stay. The room was very comfortable with almost all the necessary amenities. The breakfast is decent and free. The rate was very economical considering that it is about 30 kms outside Dusseldorf. There is a massive mall just around the corner (Limbecker Platz) where... More

This hotel is quietly located just outside center of Essen, but well within walking distance. Convenient and reasonable prices parking under the hotel. Staff is very friendly. Rooms clean and as as every Holiday Inn Express basic but comfortable (good bed en shower). Good breakfast en WIFI come with the rooms.

This hotel has a great location, close to a large mall and nice restaurants. Be aware that the hotel does not have air conditioning;we stayed there in July, during some hot days. We were out and about during the day, but at night we had to open the window to get some fresh air. There is traffic at night, so... More

The best Holiday Inn Express I have ever been in! For a cheap 54€ per night you get a comfortable double room that sleeps a child on the couch made into a (short but comfy) single bed. The room was small and made smaller even by the extra bedding but very clean, very modern, new bed sheets, new appliances, bathroom... More

We were staying here for 4 nights while visiting the Exhibition centre (Messe Essen) and the location was quite okay, if you are not afraid of using the metro. There is a metro station not too far away from the hotel and a direct line to the fair. Also easy to reach from the train station. Free wifi and breakfast... More

Holiday Inn in Essen is a typical business hotel with clean rooms and good breakfast buffet. I especially enjoyed making my own waffles in the mornings. It is well located in the centre of town close to a big shopping area and is a 10 minute taxi ride to Messe Essen. Can be a bit overcrowded during exhibition time but... More

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.
