This hotel would have received a very good rating but average is all it deserves on account of two factors. The first is the pervasive odour of tobacco smoke which managed to penetrate my 'non-smoking' room. The second is the strange vibration and shaking/rattling of walls and doors whose cause I couldn't figure out. The furniture in my single room... More

We arrived late Sunday afternoon and managed to get a room before the front desk closed for the day. The room was very comfortable with an adequate bathroom and the breakfast was very good, with an excellent choice of food. The staff were very friendly and really made us feel welcome. The hotel is in a fantastic location just a... More

Hotel was clean but a little dated. Good buffet breakfast and friendly staff. Very close to the old section of the town so it was a great location. Would go back again if in the area. Limited parking behind the hotel.

In planning our Christmas trip we made a booking well in advance for the fabulous Christmas Markets in Esslingen. We booked this hotel knowing it is located within walking distance to the Christmas Markets and especially requested an extra bed for my 15 year old son to be in the same room with us and parking to cater for a...

We recently enjoyed a visit to the amazing Esslingen Christmas market and this hotel is a perfect location for this purpose. It was only a short walk away. In my mind, this hotel should vigorously market this feature as Esslingen's medieval market is truly unique- a great atmosphere. The hotel room room itself was very clean but overall quite tired....

This little hotel has a great location. I usually stay at this one during my business trips while it is just 3 minutes walk to S-Bahn Station and 1 minute walk to bus station... The shopping districts of Esslingen are also just a few minutes of walking. The Karstadt (shopping center) - ReWe (supermarket) - Saturn (electronic market) - DM... More

I stayed for 6 days for a business trip. It's about the location that we chose this hotel. We didn't spend much time in the hotel. Hotel room was quite small but it was standard to such a European small town. Breakfast was ok, not much variety but enough to start a good day. Neither disappointment nor impression. Just a... More

I have stayed several times at the Hotel am Schelztor in Esslingen. It is located a short walk from the train station and very close to Esslingen's very pretty pedestrian zone and shopping districts. The breakfasts are very good, with excellent variety. Because of its smaller size, don't expect amenities like room service or 24-hour bellhop, and be sure to... More

We went for a wedding to Esslingen and unfortunately the Hotels they recommended were booked. This one was free and the price was average, and the best of all it was almost next to the church and the big aula where the party took place. It's also next to the river, city center and where the pedestrian zone begins. So... More
