We stayed just one night at this hotel, arriving late one evening and leaving early the following morning, but we did not have a good night's sleep. Our room was uncomfortably hot and there was no air conditioning. We had to choose between the heat or the noise from the street. We opted for the latter. In addition, the beds...

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...

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...
