My stay in the Maritim last week just confirmed my earlier comments. It is still the staff that makes this a great hotel. The refurbishments continue and the food has improved. The Bar and its Manager are brilliant. Breakfast under the control of Sarha Licht is excellent and reception is superb as ever. Martin Knowles

I've been using this hotel for three or four weeks a year for about twelve years on business. Sure it needs a bit of updating to the rooms but they're clean and have all the things you need. The staff are excellent. Food in the restaurant is top notch and cheap for what you get.

We booked a family room (2 open bed rooms with a bath room) on the 8th floor. We had dinner in the hotel (wasn't special but ok). For breakfast you have a large choice (buffet). Nice breakfast room with view on the garden. Not nice that we had to swim with senior group class on Friday from 10 till 11!... More

Whilst earlier reviews regarding the Hotel being a little tired are understandable I believe the customer service,friendliness of staff, quality of food, cleanliness and ambience of the bar/restaurant more than compensates. Whilst we found everyone to be very professional the "Messi" of the team is the Bar Manager. I did give him this feedback but he said he would rather... More

This hotel is made special by the Staff. They are welcoming and can't do enough for you during your stay. OK the hotel is in need of refurbishment but it is still a good place to stay.

As it is a 4 star hotel, I was definitely expecting some better conditions. First of all, it is quite old and the rooms' furnishings and equipment can clearly show it. Some renovation would be a main point I would recomment.

Having said that, the room was very good, with a sitting room and a good sized bedroom. The hotel is located aroud 15 minutes' walk from Gelsenkirchen Hbf. Paid EUR 1.65 for beer, which... More

I stayed 8 nights at this hotel; everything was fine, but nothing spectacular. Nice, clean rooms that aren't big but comfortable enough, with good mattress and pillows. The breakfast was very good, but the service wasn't friendly... and don't try to come at 10.15 (it's supposed to be opened till 10.30 in the week) or you'll be frowned upon... There's... More
