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.

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
