We staid in a 3 person room for 2 nights. The welcome at the hotel was very nice and the staff was very helpful. The room was of a decent size, basic furniture and extremely small bathroom. The breakfast was way above the standard of the hotel. Very good. The location is practical and the hotel provides you with tickets... More

This is a charming old fashioned hotel close to a U-Bahn station which is only two stops from the Central Station in Essen. It si very convenient if you are visiting a Trade Fair at Meese Essen which is also two stops away on the U-11 or a pleasant 15 minute walk if you are feeling energetic. There is no... More

It's a pity all hotels don't put in the same effort as these guys. From check in to check out, the staff are friendly, genuine, and helpful. With wifi throughout, an excellent home prepared breakfast, central location, and complimentary lunch bags, this hotel is a winner! It may be only 50m "off the beaten track", but that still makes this... More

Meh. I think I might have just been in Essen on a busy weekend, but this hotel was quite overpriced compared to the other places I've been in Germany. I paid less for nicer hotels in Munich, Hamburg, Aachen, Stuttgart and Berlin (which are much nicer cities). It is very clean and somewhat cute. The public transport takes a little... More

I stayed at Rheinischer Hof hotel in November 2012. It was an affordable solution for accommodation during the Medica trade fair in Düseldorf when acommodation prices at Düseldorf are abnormally high. The hotel is very good located.Only a few minutes away from the subway station. The street where the hotel is located is very quiet. The hotel is located not... More

I stayed in Essen one night to attend a dance event in the area. This hotel is super close to a U-bahn station (within 200 metres), making it very easy to access from the main train station (and it's only 2 stops on the U-11 line). The staff was very friendly and helpful. You get a free public transportation ticket... More

On business trip to Essen. Was recommended this hotel by someone who has lived/worked in the area for 20 years. The hotel is fairly basic, but very good if you are not planning to spend vast amounts of time in your room or want to entertain clients in hotel restaurant (although hotel restaurant did look good - we did not...
