I needed a room during a major trade exhibition in Essen. All of the large chains were charging 200% or 300% of their typical rates and none of them were worth the money.
I found Hotel Palla and booked a room for what I thought was an amazingly low nightly rate.
This is a small hotel in a quiet neighborhood and very inexpensive, you should not expect all of the services of a major chain, but you should also be prepared for pleasant surprises. I found the room and the bed to be very comfortable. The buffet breakfast is very good and the garden area for breakfast is beautiful.
A short walk from Hotel Palla is a tapas restaurant called Cafe and Bar Celona. It is excellent.More
