Reasonably large and attractive room, well-soundproofed, with a shower-room that would do credit to a much dearer hotel. Very efficient staff, and good wifi. Adequate breakfast. The position, right in the centre of the city, could hardly be better. Very good quality to price ratio. It is a pity that the whole experience is marred by some small savings: very... More

Enjoyed this hotel last week, end of February. Since this hotel is really in the middle of Essen city, Kennedy Platz, it is really convenient. Parking is below the hotel, Kennedy Platz had a ice team with complete ice skating, apres ski bars etc. Motel self is relaxed, very good rooms with nive view on Kennedy Platz, good reception service...

Stayed just one night on business, Motel One same as usual, clean, modern, comfortable The staff were great, room very clean. The bathroom is small but fine for one person to use Parking is in car park right by the hotel and was €10 for the night (no special rate for hotel and must pay cash - no cards)

The Motel 1 in Essen is a typical Motel1 facility, the rooms are nice and clean, standard size and the location is very central. All of the features of the chain are in order, the breakfast is all you need, internet works. However there are two things that need to be expressed and are intended for the hotel management: 1)...

We had never stayed at a Motel One before but you can be sure we will again. The room was well-proportioned, the service was great, WiFi was stable and fast and we spent many hours in the lounge playing the games we bought at Spiel14. Beware of the Havana Special at the bar - it's potent and very tasty. Breakfast... More

A good hotel with a good location. You have several restaurants, bars and cafes nearby. I stayed there for two nights. Service, price and room are absolutely fine. Room does not have a fridge, also I missed at least a bottle of water in the room and a wardrobe. Breakfast is good. For a quick stay it's a good option.

Stayed here on a study trip, the room was booked for me. Incredibly convenient, in central location in the Essen pedestrianized shopping district, close to everything including transit --an easy walk from the train station (but equally close to another underground station). As an "American" it took me a long time to figure out I could open the window--which was... More

It's a 10 minute walk from Hbf, lots to eat around the hotel. Room was extremely clean. As you would expect everything is well maintained. Internet speed was ok, 4-5mb down, .8 up, which is not bad for a hotel! Will definitely be returning.
