I get to try out hotels on business trips and this one was very good in all aspects. As the hotels are booked ahead by others I must start asking what the amenities are. Had I known it had a pool and leisure gym and sauna I might have missed the first round of beers at the bar. Excellent evening... More

We are coming to this hotel for many years. Unfortunately over time nothing improved. They try to keep the standard, but as always standing still is like going back. Reception - good Restaurant - food, atmosphere and service poor Room / Bed - good, bed comfortable Bathroom - very small Fitness, Pool and Sauna - phantastic

I stayed in this hotel for few nights because of an official business meeting. The hotel structure is good, restaurants, bars and the rooms are nice. The food was good. And the hotel staff friendly. I did not like the fact that the rooms are equipped with very poor shower towels, old, tin and small. It's a very poor feeling... More

I've been staying at the Bredeney several times now, and have found them fitting my requirement to a T! The rooms, while small, are well-furnished, the surroundings are very peaceful and quiet, the service is excellent, and the buffet breakfast is great as well! With good connectivity to the local bus services, and in close reach of many offices, this... More

Very nice hotel with clean rooms, good beds and great breakfast. They went out of their way for all the gamers at the Messe in Essen. One little downsite, 1 english channel on tv, no international. Free wifi was great.

I visited Essen last month on business and stayed here since it was literally across the street from our client. The staff was very friendly. The restaurant and breakfast were also quite nice. However, if you are accustomed to a normal double, queen or king beds don't expect a Heavenly Bed at the Bredeney. The mattresses are thin with small... More

Stayed there 1 night, on a short business trip to the Essen region. The hotel is a simple German business hotel, nothing fancy, but all you may need (apart from AC in the rooms, which can be challenging in summer). In house restaurant and biergarten are very nice and breakfast was super. Will go there if I have to go... More

The Bredeney Hotel offers space. As you enter the car park you see that there is plenty of room although many cars are there already. The lobby is spacious and light. The corridors are broad, the standard room is a decent size and in the breakfast room you don't have to squeeze yourself in. These are the advantages of a... More
