After more than 30 years Residence will unfortunately close its doors forever. So visit before end of the year, it is a fantastic restaurant ( two Michelin stars), very close to the product. And an incredible wine selection with one of the best sommeliers in Germany

Hotel: I arrived late and they made sure my key was ready to get into the room. The hotel looks nice from the outside but looks a bit outdated Price: The price I paid was ok, usually you get a room with breakfast for this price for the type of room but I am not complaining. Room: This was a... More

We have just spent 10 wonderful nights in this spectacular location near Dusseldorf. This hotel wins best bathroom in Germany with two sources of water for your shower and so much pressure I want to call a plumber to check our home bathroom water flow! We left the hotel twice to travel to other destinations and they kept 2 pieces... More

Stayed here for three nights. Rooms are OK, some have had a better make-over than others. Bathroom was nice and modern. Little noise from neighbours and hall way in the mornings, but a quiet location in a residential area. Great staff, used to the 2 Michelin star standard of the restaurant. Didn't have dinner there though - too expensive -... More

The two-star Michelin restaurant serves stunning food and surrounds it with the highest levels of service. The small hotel above the restaurant is, then, a curious thing: very small rooms but excellently furnished at a budget price. I would visit again for the food (as a treat, it is, as is usual for this level of cuisine, eye-wateringly expensive -... More

We stayed in the Hotel Residence purely by accident. After a long day of driving, we needed a place to stay for the night and we decided that Essen was about as far as we would be able to go. My spouse opened the Michelin guide, called the Residence, and we had a wonderful evening as a result. The hotel... More

Went there only to eat, and it was worth traveling from Dusseldorf for just one night. The service was - if possible - even better than the food. Everyone was so polite and even though they all could not remember every name of the food items, it was ok. And much cheaper than a Michelin-restaurant in Finland. After finishing dinner... More

I stayed at the Residence over the course of over a year in 2006 and must say that this place is one of the best places I have ever been to in my life and by far the best hotel in Germany. I have been back there a few times since. It is a small hotel with 19 rooms located... More

This hotel is located in a residential street, 5 minutes from the train station. It is very quaint,just under 20 rooms I beleive, but they would do anything for you. On arrival ,you do have some sherry wine as well as some fruit basket in the room. By USA standart rooms are small, but for Europe is is quite fine.... More
