Stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip. Nice hotel. Rooms quite small but enough for one person. Very good breakfast though area was very crowded. The fitness/spa area on the top floor are very nice, but there are only very few fitness machines.

It's right next to the Veltins Arena(04). If it is a game night it might be very bussy and/or noisy. during our stay though, there wasn't a game, so lots of free parking space and a quite surrounding. enjoyable tarrace and good breakfast!

Stayed here for just one night before a business meeting with several colleagues. Hotel is in a great location with loads of free parking. Staff are very friendly and efficient. Rooms are well equipped and spotless. Bar is very good and has a good atmosphere. Only had breakfast where the choice was good but the cooked items were only lukewarm.... More

This is one of our favorite hotels in the area we come at least once a year for a week or so. This hotel is super clean, offers a great restaurant downstairs and room service for those late night munchies. The beds are soft but solid and comfortable the quality of linens and bathroom towels are great, sound proof windows,... More

For sport fans good place. Staff is very helpful, high variety of food selection is good too. Only one problem can be with internet and this... More

If you happen to be in the Rhein-Ruhr area and fancy an original location to stay and relax away from busy and expensive city centers, think about this hotel. The team, the management and the property are definitely an excellent choice. Plus, you will enjoy looking over the Veltins Arena and feel a bit of the football fan supporter feeling,... More

Stayed at this hotel for the first time for business. Booked a room on the executive floor which includes the wifi and parking. I was very positively surprised by the politeness of the staff and their friendliness at both check-in and check-out (you might think it should be in this way, but trust me I have had some very bad...

I've stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Gelsenkirchen on two occasions for business. To be honest, the choice of hotels isn't great in Gelsenkirchen and the Marriott is arguably the best of the big hotels. In terms of cleanliness and comfort, I can't fault it. However, I think the rooms need to be modernised. The main issue I have with... More
