It has big and clean rooms and excellent breakfast buffet. Evening dinner was good. The flaw: wifi reception so poor in my room that it did not work at all. It would have got one star more if the network was working.

I had booked a non-smoking "superior plus" room and asked specifically for a quiet room. The superior plus rooms are marketed as being specifically quiet since they face the interior courtyard. Unfortunately, this has turned into one of my least pleasant hotel stays ever. I got a room on the second floor that indeed faces the interior courtyard. Unfortunately, and... More

I stay here quite often on my business trips. Rooms are clean and modern. Bed is comfortable and breakfast has a very good variety from continental to full English. The staff is very helpful. Overall a very good stay.

We stayed here for a visit to the christmas market in Essen. It is a very short stroll to the city center. The hotel offers good value for money and the brakfast buffet was good. The hotel is not very special, but it is a good and affordble option if you plan to visit the city.

I stayed two nights in the hotel and when I checked out I left some clothes hanging in the wardrobe . I contacted the hotel the same day and was told they had not been found. Strange. The hotel would not reply to my emails asking to check with the person who cleaned my room. They would not tell me... More

I stay here a lot because of the proximity to my company's Essen locations and the city center. The hotel is both convenient and comfortable. It's a short walk to the city center, some good restaurants, to mass transit, and the local theaters. The hotel restaurant is quite good but a bit expensive. The service throughout the hotel is very... More

We just needed a hotel for one night, as we'd tickets for a performance at the Colosseum Theater and didn't want to drive back to The Netherlands late at night. The hotel is about an almost straight 20 min walk from the theater. As we considered the hotel's parking garage too expensive, we parked our car at the car park... More

The location of the hotel was OK, and the room was quite peaceful, as I had requested. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The room was otherwise fine, but the bed was horrible. The double bed had a bad mattress and uncomfortable pillows, and I slept very badly. I had asked for pillows without feathers, as my friend is... More
