This is a nice hotel - basic but clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and the location is great: very close Essen's pedestrianised zone and therefore shops, as well as a number of cafes and restaurants. Although Motel One's rooms are essentially all the same, this hotel differs slightly from other Motel One's in that it is in... More

Well. A Motel One is a Motel.ome and that's exactly what you.should expect. The small but clean and nicely designed rooms look.as they look like as at any of their hotels, so does the lobby and their breakfast. What is outstanding for this one is the very central location right at Kennedy Platz and the well reserved staircase that together... More

We spent 2 nights in this well designed hotel, which has been built into a 50's insurance company's building. The central staircase is a beautiful reminder of this heritage. Our room had a nice view on Essen's city square, with comfortable beds, but no possibility the regulate the temperature, since the temperature controle system had already been switched off. Budget...

We had a standard double room which was spacious, clean, stylishly decorated. Only downsides - room always too warm, bathroom very small, no mirror over the dressing table area. Breakfast was fine but nothing hot. Bar area good. Staff friendly. Central to Essen and not far from train station.

Staying at this hotel for a long weekend we appreciated the central location and the quiet efficiency of the staff. The rooms and the style of the hotel are - as all the Motel One's we stayed at so far - of the highest standard to be found for a 'no-Stars' hotel. Modern and uncluttered design, spacious rooms and efficient... More

This hotel is located in the centre of town, we walked to the restaurant in the evening and then popped into a bar for coffee on the way back. There is no check-out, you pay for your stay on arrival and then leave your card at reception. This saves a lot of time because I often find there a queues... More

For me, this is an alternative to Holiday Inn Express or Ibis in Essen. On price there is not much difference, except that Wifi is free at Motel One, making it a bit cheaper than Ibis and quite a bit cheaper than HIE. The rooms are bigger and more stylish than Ibis. The location is convenient - a five-minute walk... More

Really good basic hotel, comfortable, clean, spacious, free wifi (although wifi works better in the lobby), in the centre of Essen, few minutes from train and metro stations. I have stayed here many times and all the rooms seems similar in size, and I have only had queen size beds. and rather quiet too, despite being in centre of town.... More

Stayed for 3 nights during a business trip in October 2013. Hotel is clean and tidy, staff are helpful and the location is good for Essen, being a five minute walk from the main train station.
