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.

The welcome hotel should improve significantly some things. Wifi was never working. They offer just one pillow in the rooms and they are not confortable.all tv chanelsmare in deutsche , wich is terrible for a foreigner guest. Breakfast is good.

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

Looking at this hotel on a map seemed to be a problematic choice but in fact its location, comfort and staff behaviour showed to be a pleasant experience. The only complaint I have towards quality of wi-fi connectivity which was very poor in the room.

We stayed here for the Essen Spiel 2014. It was convenient for us, it was too far to go by foot but with the car it was relatively easy and simple. Initially we had mixed feelings about the hotel, we had specified that we wanted two separate beds but received one large bed. When speaking with the reception they were... More

The Welcome Hotel in Essen is fine but I wouldn't particularly want to stay there again. The room was satisfactory and the TV had a great range of free channels, including Sky Movies, but that was probably the highlight. Going on the directions and map provided by the hotel on their website, the hotel was so hard to find and... More

We stayed at the Welcome Hotel for a friend's wedding and it was perfect for our needs. It was very easy to get to from the airport in Dusseldorf and the parking garage offered convenient parking for our rental car. The room was very clean and pleasant and the restaurant was top notch. But what really stood out was the... More
