A totally uncharming and quite rundown hotel in the middle of an intersection in the very ugly city of Gelsenkirchen., Small rooms. Breakfast and the restaurant is quite okay. You will stay here once; but not again.

The room has poor ventilation. You get a window which you can keep open but if choose to keep it closed there is no additional air system. Every morning I felt very suffocated. The breakfast is just average. The hotel staff is cordial. If you made a booking via some other agency like booking.com make sure to double check the... More

Visited the hotel 5 years later and it was as good as remembered. Good location, friendly stuff, clean rooms. It is near the town center, shops and the train station. The town does not have much to offer but it seems good for football trips and festivals (Gelsenkirchen Amphitheater is 15 min by bus from the station).

Traveled for a football game and this hotel did the job: Clean, central, good helpful staff. Had the odd snack in the restaurant which was fine but you are better off getting breakfast somewhere else as it is 10 euros and there is better value to be had in local restaurants. If you are just a few days in this... More

The hotel itself was located very close to the main railway station. The hotel was clean and fairly basic but big bugbear was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. That was the only minus point. The hotel provides a free travel pass for all guests during the length of stay which provides great value in that it covers such... More
