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 the fact you can make your own waffles. Lovely touch.
Overall I had a good stay. The hotel is nice for a business stay, there is no thrills to it but "it does what it says on the tin" and it is priced accordingly. A small gym would be nice though.
