I hadn't stayed here in a while, but was glad I went back again. I had forgotten how good it is!

Located close to Ruttenscheider Strasse, Ypsilon enjoys very good connectivity through U-bahn and S-bahn, 10 mins walk away and Bus, 2-3 mins walk away. Ruttenscheid has some of the best restaurants in Essen. An excellent Chinese Imbiss is a 5-min walk towards Ruttenscheid. Rooms are small, with a nice bed.
