    Reasonable hotel for Messe Essen

    I chose this hotel as being within walking distance of Messe Essen, and at about 15 minutes walk it met my needs well. It's right opposite the swimming pool too, evidenced by a large number of swimming competitors during my stay. The full house did mean I had a smoking room, but it was clean enough and the staff made the effort to refresh it.

    Ok, if you're a heavy sleeper!

    Rooms at the front of hotel very noisy due to main road adjacent. Quieter rooms at the rear are charged extra!

    Essen hotel

    The price charged was not reflected in the standard of hotel. One member of staff was particularly rude and argued with us on checking out.

    Good hotel. A few little niggles

    Very nice hotel. A few niggles such as limited menu on months rotation, some slight noise during night from fridge didn't help sleep. But very friendly staff especially during breakfast.
