The reception did not want to spend a second more on their guests than necessary and later we found out why. Little explanation, keycard given and please go! When I returned to reception after 5 minutes because both the Tv and wifi didnt work I found out the two loud shouting guys we met in the parking were aparently the... More

This Hotel was very clean,the staff were polite and helpful.The free travel card included in the room rate was brilliant,not only local transport but allowed you to travel to Dortmund or Dusseldorf. If you come to this hotel to watch football,(friend and I came to support Chelsea) the Town shuts down about 21.30, we only found three bars that were... More

Traveled for a football game and this hotel did the job: Clean, central, good helpful staff. Had the odd snack in the restaurant which was fine but you are better off getting breakfast somewhere else as it is 10 euros and there is better value to be had in local restaurants. If you are just a few days in this... More

The Intercity Hotel Gelsenkirchen is a very good hotel located only a couple of minutes walk from the train station. The staff are friendly and very nice and nothing to hard for them. The bed was a little hard, but the room was very comfortable to hang out in. I would not recommend the restaurant at the hotel as we... More

The hotel itself was located very close to the main railway station. The hotel was clean and fairly basic but big bugbear was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. That was the only minus point. The hotel provides a free travel pass for all guests during the length of stay which provides great value in that it covers such... More

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
