Motel One Essen

Hotel in Stadtkern, Essen

This new hotel is in the pedestrian area in the heart of Essen, just over a quarter mile from Essen Main Station and Essen Cathedral. Motel One Essen features a 24-hour lounge and free Wi-Fi. Everything 😊 The staff was super friendly, the hotel is very clean and modern. Also what was so great was that the location is in the middle of the city but we could barely hear anything from our room. It was super peaceful and very comfortable.
