I was twice in this hotel which I choose due to its location near the train main station. The hotel is directly at the beginning of the shopping streets, the underground, trams and buses are in front of it, so you can reach any other destination within the town. Rooms and bathrooms are large and clean. Breakfast is good. Personnel... More

Beautiful clean hotel, very central. Staff welcoming and helpful. Really enjoyed our stay. Stayed in a room facing the road and train station and did not hear any noise, surprisingly very quiet. Great location for shopping. We have already booked to stay again! Would recommend this hotel.

Definitely a business hotel although people stay here for leisure also. Big hotel just across the road from the railway station. Rooms on the front can be a bit noisy from traffic but rooms on the side or back are quieter. Rooms always spotless. Fluffy towels have yet to reach this part of Germany though. Breakfast has a wide selection... More

Reasonable business hotel in OK location. Room 232 was rather small and faced the back of the hotel and was generally quiet. Bathroom was small with only a shower, but to be fair was very clean and functional. Only wanted coffee and croissant in the morning so didn't bother with hotel breakfast at 18E. No reason not to return but... More

I often stay here on business, the service is friendly and efficient, the rooms large and clean, the breafkast is good and the location is ideal for the company I contract to. As mentioned by others - having to pay for internet usage is a minor annoyance, but not that uncommon here. The other big draw for this place, for... More

Opposite the station and ideal for town centre shopping. I've stayed at this hotel with my friend, for the last 7 years late November early December.

Conveniently located right at the train station, the hotel was a good choice in that price category. The hallways give a little bit the charm (and smell) of a hospital, but room was clean and sufficient. Internet worked flawlessly. While I think Internet use should generally be free as part of your stay, to have an economic option of choosing... More

The hotel is directly next to the train station. It is quite loud there. I had called ahead and requested a quiet room, and this worked out well. I had a very large corner room towards the back. The room itself is clean and well appointed, but a bit dated. I liked the coffee maker and tea kettle, but would... More

I booked this hotel thru booking.com, the rate was (paid in advace), however, cheaper than normal net rates. The room was clean.

The Hotel is located directly in front of Essen Bahnhof. The price is right compared to the room quality. The downside are the absence of a bidet in the bathroom (I'm italian and I will never get acquainted to that) and the high price of breakfast. The fact that wi.fi is avalaible only upon fee can be solved using the... More
