Old rooms, furniture, lift. Madam at the desk wasn't really friendly and helpful. Slow internet. Breakfast good. Location OK (town center - not really interesting), good for traveling around the region with trains. A stayed in many Ibis hotels and all were much better.

This hotel was basic as you would expect with the Ibis chain, but I tell you what the staff were attentive and rooms spotless. The hotel is ideally placed for everything you want to see or do. Great little town to visit and this hotel will not break the bank.

I stayed here for 3 nights 1st - 4th August, for football at the Veltins Arena. Pretty much what you come to expect from Ibis. Clean, comfortable & good value for money. The staff were very friendly & helpful Gelsenkirchen was a lot nicer than I had been lead to believe with some decent bars & restaurants in town.

A standard Ibis hotel with the quality you expect. Clean comfy rooms, basic bathroom, soft beds (a bit too soft to my personal taste) and a good breakfast buffet. The breakfast gets an extra point from me because it's the first Ibis buffet ever where I found Royal First Flush tea. That's pretty amazing! The neighborhood of the hotel can... More

Ibis is pretty "sterile" chain and this hotel is not exception but I would recommend this hotel, especially during big fairs in Essen or Düsseldorf. Gelsenkirchen is nice town, small enough to take a walk in the evening and close enough to mentioned cities. Rooms are clean and staff decent. Parking is not a strong side, since there is no... More

The room window was facing the street and the noise in the morning might wake up the light sleepers. It was a small room, no fridge, no air conditioning. If it gets too cold, you can ask at the reception for a small heater. They're a partner of Schalke 04. The price goes up when the team is playing in... More

My Husband I booked in for one night. When I enquired about the parking that is advertised, I was shown 3 parking spaces on the pavement. As I was parked behind these three cars so that I could at least unpack, I was told by the very rude receptionist that she would only give me 5 minutes to move my... More
