        Getting there.

        The hotel is a great place to start your trip around Germany. All popular tourist spots are just a stone’s throw from the hotel. Guests can easily get to Zeche Zollverein, the Philharmonic Essen and, of course, one of the best known museums in the world Folkwang. Those who admire music should definitely visit Arena AufSchalke and Arena Oberhausen where top musical and sport events are taking place every week. Comfortable location of the hotel allows you to get quickly and easily to any spot in the town.

        Getting around.

        The hotel is only 20 minutes drive from the closet airport Duesseldorf. It will take you a little longer if using public transport, even though the transport network is well-developed in this town.

          Staff v friendly and helpful, rooms very comfortable and well appointed, homely feel, excellent restaurant, delicious food very well presented and v attentive and personable staff. Bar area welcoming and attentive friendly staff.

          Location by busy road and a little away from restaurants. Reception area a bit cramped and could do with a bit of a facelift.

          Everything as expected for this type of business hotel in Germany. Clean, friendly & efficient. Evening restaurant service was good - not over the top.

          Perhaps a little more choice at breakfast for this price.

          When we then arrived at the hotel, reception could not find us in the system. Upon our insistence they continue looking, they did indeed find my booking, but then tried to convince us that we (three people) had already used the booking the previous week!!! As this was definitely not the case, we were lead to believe that someone else had fraudulently used my booking and also my credit card to pay for it. I was very confused how this could happen and, of course, anxious that somehow my computer/email/credit card etc. had been hacked. We demanded to see the manager as we were very anxious to try to sort this all out, but even though the manager could be seen in the back office, she refused to come out to speak with us. The receptionist eventually found rooms for us after 45 minutes of discussions and arguments, all the time convinced that either someone else or indeed we ourselves had already used the booking. I then received a smoking room, which had an extremely strong smell of cigarettes, but was not allowed to change, even after the very poor handling at reception. This was the absolute icing on the cake and left me feeling even more annoyed and upset (if that was indeed possible). Upon checking out the following morning another member of staff, who had been advised of our problem, gave her opinion, which was that it had all to do with a room rate difference, and that in fact, no one had fraudulently used my booking or credit card. It seems that when I booked via Booked.net, I apparently received a cheaper rate than I should have. This cheaper rate was not valid for the dates I had booked, so the hotel decided without referring back to me to book my reservation against a completely different date! I am still trying to figure out how anyone could think up such a story and cause worry and upset among their guests. If they had just admitted to the initial mistake all would have been fine.

          Having stayed some years ago experiencing an excellent nights accomodation we found this time that room 433 does not have working air conditioning during our particular stay making the room unbearable hot & sweaty during the night. Even with the window open there was no improvement considering the wether condtions plus the room was rather noisy, It made for an extreemly uncomfortable night stay, felt drained the next morning. Not best pleased to have paid money for a hot , uncortable & noisy night.

          The staff were extreemly freindly & helpful. Al were pleasant and had a smile. It was just the room that we felt let the place down
