The hotel is just across the train station, with lots of shops around. The hotel itself is very well maintained. The room size is enormous. Staff are friendly. room service quality is very good. Lots of bakeries around if you want to have breakfast outside of the hotel. Would recomend it.

The hotel is next to the central railway station (other side of the street). We stayed for a workshop with around 40-50 persons, so we used their conference facilities. Had dinner in the hotel and stayed the night. Ok restaurant and nice bar downstairs - nobody felt the need to go out from the hotel premises. Room ok, conference room... More

I stayed here on business. For the price it is of a higher standard generally when compared to Premier Inn etc in the UK. The room is furnished in a typical European/German style which was fine except the bedding wasn't very comfortable for me. Being used to nice comfy beds in UK hotels this bed wasn't as good. The pillows... More

Stayed in this hotel several times and it was okay. The hotel is located directly in front of main station of Essen, so you cannot get lost (but as every main station you can see there "all kind" of different people around). During Christmas time the Weinachtsmarkt is directly around the corner, so don't be surprised to hear some corrals... More

Very nice hotel in down town Essen with plenty of shopping possibilities. Spend the nights in executive rooms with free minibar and wifi. If you like to relax in a city then pAy it a visit. The restaurant and English pub is very nice too. The bar has a whiskey selection mark.

This hotel is centrally located near the Essen railway station and at the pedestrian zone which offers you lots of shops and dining places. I guess the breakfast must be good as it costs you 20 euros ( but i did not take but went to the bakery arond the corner). For a four star place and a business hotel... More

I love this hotel very much. I stayed there for business last week and found the place wonderful. There was even a "not really a Christmas market" outside the door. Christmas markets are only allowed a certain time of year and so the market outside was "not a real Christmas market." :-) The room was above average size, very clean... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for the Essen Spiel 2014 trade fair.

This place was so disappointing that it doesn't even warrant the time it would take to leave a long review. Part of their pricing structure seems to be modelled on that of Ryanair: Charge a lot of money and give crap (a perfect example is their expensive Wifi that gives dial-up speeds!). I can imagine that the hotel thrives on... More
