“Budget hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

I stayed there only 1 night. Hotel's main hall and restaurants looks good, food was average. Room is very small and not very comfortable, bath room is smaller than my car :-) What was really good is bed - accurate soft, fullsize, good pillow and duvet. Checkin/checkout was quick and professional. In general - good budget hotel for 1-2 night but for leisure trip I will definitely choose another one.

The hotel is situated near the town and the main rail station and has its own carpark which makes it ideal for quick visits to Essen. The staff were very friendly and although the rooms were the standard Ibis style sadly these were not quite as good as other ones. The bathroom is small, which is pretty normal, but the weird porthole style window is not too nice. We had a smoking room and would expect it to have some odour but even for me, as a smoke, it stank to high heaven and was very unpleasant. Breakfast was so so. I would probably use it again, this was not my first stay, due to the proximity of the town and carparking but only for short stays.

Overall, our trip and stay in hotel was very good. Reception workers are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is healthy and fresh as well. Hotel is situated in right place, and all the necessary destinations are close to it.There is one room for improvement. I suggest to have more fresh towels for face and hands in place. One more point. It is better to have electrical teapot in rooms as do other hotel in Europe.

Not bad for a weekend in the city. Located 100 meters from the main train station with a local metro stop. Also, just few hundred meters from the city center and shopping zone.

Room is small with the smallest shower I've encountered on my trips. Like other Ibis hotels you only get the necessities.

Breakfast was ok. Staff was probably the best part of our stay since they were really helpful and pleasant.

When conventions are happening rooms are twice as expensive. They did gave us a room few hours before check in time, dough.
No wi fi in the rooms.
At regular prices, it's basic budget hotel close to the railway station

Good hotel in the city center. The rooms were a little bit too small and quite hot during my stay but the location was good. I can recommend that budget place to stay. Very close to the central station.
