“Average quality, no value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

Under-average rooms and less value for money. Prices up to 90 euros a night including breakfast but without Wifi. Rooms are clean but small and noisy. Location is good, about 5 minutes walk to Essen shopping mall, and about 15 minutes drive to Centr0.

Hotel was in renovation, unfortunately we had a non-renovated room.

It´s a good Hotel near the center, with a shopping mall a lot of shops and the christmas market nearby. A little loud because of renovation and a lot of guest from the netherlands. The rooms are suitable. But even I missed a cupboard and I only stayed one night. The breakfast was fresh and delicious but not as big as in other hotels.

I like this hotel because it is pretty new. Had good rooms and a bar in the lobby. Close to Mongos, which is a great place to eat Mongolian BBQ. I stay here often when I am working nearby. It's cheaper during the week than the nearby regular Holiday Inn. I like that they give you free hour internet cards in the lobby on request, so you can sit at the bar and do some work.

We stayed at the hotel on September 2nd as we were going to the Germany/Austria football game at Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen.

The hotel is in a good location by the U-Bahn and very large shopping centre. (that has bakeries, grocery store and oodles of clothing stores)

The rooms were small but clean and served their purpose.

The breakfast was ok but we only had the buns and coffee.
