5 minutes walk from Essen. Good hotel, nice and clean. Breakfast was also clean and enough. Parking till 10 in morning for free outside of the hotel. The combination we had was, for € 52,50 we had 2 days entree Movie Park and 1 night at the Holiday Inn including breakfast. You order via Movie Park website.

Hotel is getting old and needs a revamp. This is suppose to cater for the business man but if you really need to work forget it. The Internet is worst than a so called 3rd world country. It is bad extremely bad. When you talk about German precision then I wonder where is it?? You cannot get any work done.

Booked rooms for myself and colleague as I rely on IHG hotels for good quality comfortable rooms. This was up to standard, and the location (just opposite a huge new shopping mall in Essen) was excellent. Colleagues who booked into other hotels in Essen for the same meeting were less fortunate (I heard a number of grumbles!) but I imagine... More
