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

I have never stayed here before and it was out of the way for me, but that is not the hotel's fault.

As business traveller you would expect that when you stay in your hotel and want to have dinner, things work smoothly. In the hotel bar where they offer food as well, apparently this is misunderstood. I ordered my dinner (a simple cup of soup and a main course) and after 3 beers and 1.5 hours still no soup although we... More
