    I liked the hotel, the rooms and the location. The staff was very nice and breakfast was also great. It's great location and easy to find. They were very forthcoming as I wanted to check in earlier and check out later. So it was very nice that it wasn't a problem.

    No elevator and a room at the top of the house (but I knew about it!) . The bed looked a bit too soft at the start , but , actually , I did sleep very well.

    Nice place close to U-bahn to the Messe. Some problems to find it when I got out of the tube. pleasant breakfast and comfortable room with enough light to read at night.

    Towels were very old and thin. Bed sheet was yellowish. The corridor smelled terrible. The cleanness of the bathroom and other things were not satisfying at all. Everything's was from the cheapest and the worst quality. Too expensive for sch a bad place, which doesn't fit any definition of the word "hotel".

    I recommend this place for driving through. Not for a turistic reason

    I arrived very late and there were no problems to check-in. Very clean room and really comfortable bathroom. Breakfast served on the world class level. They didn't have any problem with my dog.

    Just stayed for one night, but I loved it! Very comfortable and well located. The owners were very nice and it's all very clean. I travelled alone and the room had two beds. The breakfast was delicious! From 7 to 10 am. And they even called a taxi for me. Great hotel :)

    Should improve the "wi-fi", the care of daily cleanliness of the floor and linen.

    The owners are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is satisfactory. The room is very warm and has convenient furniture. The location is in an area with lots of shopping and food stores.

    Sometimes the hallway smelled of smoke, as there are some smoking rooms, but I think this is pretty common throughout Europe.

    The owners were very sweet, and the location could not be better for the price. You are right smack in the middle of the most interesting and lively part of Essen. The room was comfortable, and the wifi was amazing.

    The smell is smoke pervades through the entire hotel. Even in the rooms, you can smell it occasionally. Wifi was very weak and frustrating.

    The hotel is located in a quiet part of the town, so you are guaranteed to have a good night of sleep. The breakfast is great with a diverse selection of options.

    Unable to contact anyone in the property at 8pm, after I had checked in, even though I rang the bell and knocked on the door. Internal noise very noticeable - guests returning at 2 in the morning sounded like they were in my room!

    Comfortable clean room in a good location. Good shower. Adequate breakfast.

    Parking can be a bit of a kerfuffle, but the owner is very helpful and ready with advice. At night free at the roadside or public parking lot just meters from hotel - so after all not a real problem, just something you need to be aware of.

    Very friendly staff, the owners go out and beyond to help you and their friendly and good natured attitude makes you feel so welcomed. Nice and very personal breakfast, good quality of the food and enough to fee my huge appetite. Location offers a wider variety of good and better restaurants, as much as pizza places and traditional local "kneipe"-styled pubs. Great!
