After a long drive from Calais, we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the hotel. Parking was free, and plenty of spaces. Check in very quick and efficient with English speaking staff. Our room over looked the very grand council offices, so was fairly quiet. The room for a budget hotel was spotless, fairly large, with a well stocked... More

A decent business hotel. Beds are ok, work space is good but WiFi was very slow. No air conditioning but room temperature was good, despite heat wave outside. Location is good, near train station and city center.

It's better than average. We've there only 1 night for business. It's Clean hotel. location is very good. If you stay in gelsenkirchen / Germany for a short period, I strictly advice it for you. May be it's little bit expensive more than normal, but it's the cheapest hotel in this area.

The hotel is very well located, next to the central station and to the ring. The surrounding is quite moisy but the hotel is well insonorised. The rooms are very simple but clean. For a short stay is ok, for a complete vacation could be not enough.

Average hotel at a fairly reasonable rate. Only stayed for 2 nights but the hotel was fine, clean and comfortable. Gelsenkirchen is a very quiet town with not alot going on after 10pm and not a great choice of hotels. This hotel was conveniently located near the train station and met our needs for the stay.

Stayed here on a football trip with mates. Clean tidy room. The room was right next to a busy inner city road but luckily the noise from that was drowned out by my cousin's snoring !! Really easy to walk to the town centre and also to the station. Polite friendly staff. Decent value hotel for this sort of trip.
