Nice hotel, but needs a refresh. New furniture/TV in the room for example. Big hotel, but not many guests when I stayed. Room was warm, but with the large balcony the door could be opened. (No airco) If you're high enough, the view is beautiful. Staff was very friendly and helpful and spoke good English.

Our hotel is one of the first of our chain and is therefore not comparable with the new and modern Maritim hotels. We are delighted for your praise and recognition for our staff.

Although Gelsenkirchen is an industrial area and not a very beautiful city to visit, Maritim hotel is very good and I would recommend it. Especially if you are around the area on a business trip. It is clean, especially the sheets, comfortable bed and free wifi. Excellent breakfast buffet with nice view at the lake!!!

Gelsenkirchen, possibly the blandest city in Germany, is not blessed with a huge choice of hotels. I had stayed her twice before, and chose it again, to watch Chelsea play FC Schalke in the Champions League. The Maritim is 5 minutes (and 7 euros) in a taxi from the central station. The hotel is somewhat time-warped and is distinctly tired.... More

Park with geese, walk ways and benches next to the hotel's parking. Extensive breakfast buffet, a real treat. Rooms well insulated from hallway and neighbor noise. No WIFI, but room hookup to internet available for a small price. The staff is quite welcoming and helpful.

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 stayed there for 2 nights. I had a suite on the 14th floor and what a view of the city. Location is near the main shopping street and near the restaurants (around 10-15 min walk). Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is simply amazing. A big plus is that this hotel gets its own honey from the bees on the... More

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
