The Hotel is right in the city center, very easy to get around. Lots of shops and restaurants around the hotel. The hotel was very clean and had a lovely view. Highly recommend requesting for a room on a higher floor and facing the city square for a beautiful view of the city. The breakfast is ok for the price... More

Has nearly everything you need and the only thing missing is right on the door step (a fully catered restaurant) Motel offers some nice toasted sarnies but if you are craving more then it is ideally situated with at least six (I can see from my window) in the square opposite hence four stars. The staff are exceptionally friendly and... More

We had an event in Essen so looking for a hotel in the neighborhood. Because of earlier reviews we ended up here and we were not disappointed. Decent price, certainly if you consider it is almost right in the city center, rooms ok and all "smells" new...although we asked about that but apparently it is like this already for a... More

Motel One Essen is definitely beyond expectation. Located strategically near the Essen HBf, this hotel offers comfortable rooms to stay on bargaining price, 69 euro per night. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

Stayed for one night in Essen. It overlooks the plaza and offers nice and cozy looks. The backside rooms do not have any view. The entrance to the lift is very unimpressive. Although the rooms are small they are clean and comfortable. The sleep quality is good. It offers mini bar, but no tea/coffee facilities. The bath room has modern... More
