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. Rooms are comfortable and bathroom/shower clean and functional. Breakfast available although €8 better spent at a cafe in my opinion. Disappointed to find no... More

Good situation, good service, nice decorated renewed rooms. Clean bathrooms with hairdryers. You can have more bath products on request at the reception. Nice "aquarium" screen when set up. Good value for money. Rooms are small but still a very good place for citytrips

The hotel is very clean. Brand new. Modern. Excellent location. Desk Service is very efficient. Helped us with guiding of tours and restaurants. WiFi worked very good from room and was free if you take the breakfast. It is more than worth the 8 euros you pay. Very complete and excellent as a morning starter. Will be back ever.

Nicely designed new hotel in a great central location. Convenient to the train station, but my friend had a car which was a minor hassle. Close to the city center, good food, good shopping. The room we had looked out over Kennedy Platz and beyond to a gorgeous view. While the decor was clean, new, and well designed, the beds... More

This is a new motel with new rooms. Located in the city center in Essen, 3 min walk to the main station, 2 min to U-Bahn station, shops/restaurants/bars in the neighbourhood. Small but new rooms, small desk for your laptop (just for writing a few emails, can't really work there), quite a good wifi. You have to pay on arrival... More
