The hotel is not at the city center, however it's easy to reach it by public transportation. There are two great restaurants near by. The rooms are comfortable, new and with enough space. The breakfast is great considering the European standards, The staff speaks really good English, are very kind and efficient.

We stayed here when we were travelling to Scandinavia. Essen was our first stop. The rooms were very large, especially the bathroom. We booked 2 rooms for our teenagers as well. Both bathrooms were huge, as they are suitable for people in a wheelchair. I did appreciate the fact that they have thought about these people too. Breakfast was ok,...

I spend 2 nights in Hotel Franz as I attended a conference in Essen. The hotel is modern and clean, and he staff is friendly and helpful. It is located on the outskirts of the city centre and a little away from the road so the room are quiet. I slept very well. I enjoyed the buffet breakfast, above all...

Hotel: The hotel is easy to find since it's big in comparison with other hotels. It looks like it was a retirement home or a hospital once if you see the layout and the setup of the rooms. Nothing bothersome to be honest! Price: The price we payed was good for a hotel including breakfast! The strange thing was that...

The hotel is very modern, located not far from the main 52 and 40 autobahns- we used it to stopover on drives to and from Berlin, it was perfect for this providing large clean rooms, a great value breakfast and the staff were always helpful. There is also free parking onsite- a bonus for us. We were travelling with a...

I stayed here with a colleague whilst visiting a customer in nearby Bochum. The hotel is very modern and extremely clean. At first the area around the hotel looks poor but it is actually quite nice. The rooms were excellent with comfortable beds, plenty of space and a great walk in shower. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of...

I stay here for two nights. I was on a business trip. I loved the room. Very spacious. The hotel was clean. Many things new and functional. Breakfast was good for the price. The location was good, although constructions close by limited access. I was driving. Free parking was a plus. I would stay there again when I go back...

This hotel is great lovely service and I love the fact they give disabled people jobs who work even harder to make the stay pleasant keep it up I'll defiantly visit again as this was one of the best hotels I have stayed in Luciano

The hotel is newly refurbished and trendy, yet without any super hip "baggage." It has a comfortable, not-self conscious style and vibe - perhaps it's the association with the Franz Sales Haus (an institute for helping folks with disabilities) that keeps life grounded there. The aesthetics and mood are pleasing both inside and out. The staff is friendly and helpful....

Nice, modern and neat hotel, but from the road not easy to detect and the parking place is only easy to find when it's day light. Beds are good, bath and shower are combined, which results in a cramped place to shower and the temperature of the shower varies continuously -not very comfortable. Room door requires strong arms to open....
