“Good breakfast and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2011

Here is my second review on Tripadvisor site and it's again about my business trip experience. Everybody knows how it's important having active busy day to be sure your breakfast is OK. Welcome Hotel in Essen is perfect for that. I found there some wellknown German national dishes which were very good for breakfast and tasty. Baking was excellent.
The staff was friendly and did all their best to do all in time and with less disterber.
One more word about the location of the hotel it's in fifteen minutes to walk from the central railwaystation and close to the street where the Christmas market takes place.

Welcome Hotel Essen is a good, modern business hotel. The rooms are good sized, clean and modern. Although the hotel is at the north end of the city center, a tram stop is located across the street and it is only two stops to Essen HBF. It is a 5-10 minute walk to Essen's shopping district with lots of restaurants and shops. Based on the price I paid, the hotel was also an excellent value.

Two complaints, though. I was unable to get ANY wifi reception in my room, which was surprising as I was on the 2nd floor in the middle of the building. As is typical with wifi problems, the staff could do nothing to fix the issue. Unfortunately they would not let me switch rooms or waive the daily charge for the wifi that I had to access from the hotel bar (the daily charge was cheap compared to many hotels). Hotels need to understand that wifi access is a top priority for many guests. The wifi problems alone would keep me from returning to this hotel.

The other complaint is that the TV in the room was from the dark ages. Everything else about the room was new and modern except for the horrible TV.

My company has an agreement with this hotel and i stay there 4-5 times a year.

The hotel is situated on a main road which is paralel to the main shopping street. The biggest shopping center, Limbeckerplatz is also 10min. walking distance away.

The rooms are clean with enough space. It is not possible to find a room with a nice view but try to choose a room which is at the back side, not looking to the main street, for a quiet stay. Tv's in the rooms are very old and need an uprgrade. Channels are also very limited.

Breakfast is not rich but the menu for lunch and dinner is quite good.

Free internet is limited, you should pay after a certain amount of data transfer. Service quality overall is good.

Breakfast is good. Staff are very supportive.

Stayed here on a business trip.

Check in/out was like clockwork, the rooms are very stylish, not too sure what was around the hotel as never ventured out and was coached in/out, but very central.

Breakfast was lovely, the bar was excellent and all in had a great stay.

I stayed in this hotel for one night. It is a typical business hotel.
Rooms were quite nice. Bathroom was rather small but the set up was convenient.
I disliked the bed and sheets, and did not sleep very well but that is personal taste.
Service at the reception desk was efficient, and breakfast was extensive.
I thought the isolation of the rooms was very bad; you could hear anything going on in the hallway or in the neighbour's room.

the hotel rooms are quite spacious compared to other ones in Germany. It is located close to the main market / city centre. During handling my bag, they broke it but the hotel staff was quite responsive to take up the issue & offered reimbursement.
