This is a small hotel on a residential street, far from any noise yet close to an U bahn station connecting you to either the Messe or the centre of Essen. The staff were very friendly. I would highly recommend this over any major chain as you will undoubtedly get a better night sleep. There is a restaurant round the corner- turn left out of the hotel and then right on the main road and it is a few minutes walk up on the right. It is called Karawan and serves amazingly good Arabic food. The chef is from Jordan and it competes with any of the top Lebanese in London and for a very reasonable price.

Was In town for the car show; this hotel is in a great location for the metro and is very clean and comfortable. The bathrooms seem brand new.

The staff couldn't be more helpful, especially during the small dental emergency we suffered! The staff found us an out of hours dentist and made sure we got there safe. Would very happily stay there again!

The Ruhr Hotel sits in the middle of a residential area. It is easy enough to get to, an €8 taxi ride from the main station, or a 10 minute walk from the nearest U Bahn stop. Within a 10 minute walk you can get to a main street packed with restaurants and bars, so very convenient.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly during my visit. There is a good breakfast and you can buy drinks in the reception area. The hotel also has a small lift.

Rooms are comfortable and spacious enough though as usual for German hotels, the bathroom and particularly the shower is very small. The wifi was not very reliable. On 4 of my 6 nights I could not get a connection using the code given at reception, either on my laptop or phone.

I have been to Essen several times on business, but did not appreciate how beautiful a city it can be until my stay at the Ruhr hotel.

It is a small hotel in a quiet residential area - yet it is just a short walk to the Messe, parks and museums. It is also just a 4 block walk from the Ruettenscheider Stern U11 subway stop (Ausgang E) where one will find a fine variety of options for dining and shopping.

My room size was consistent with European standards. The breakfast buffet selection had all the items I enjoy in Germany - an extra bonus was a scrambled or fried egg prepared to order in the kitchen.

The signature feature for me was the gemuetlichkeit - I was met by name with my room key and cheerful greeting and everyone grew to know to hand me an Internet voucher when I returned in the evening (which provided 8 hrs of free internet with enough bandwidth to FaceTime home and conduct all my business).

If you enjoy a quiet setting, family atmosphere and convenient location - the Ruhr Hotel I found the Ruhr hotel to be an excellent value.
