    The shower, towel and soap.

    The motel was fine for what I needed. It was very simple and fine for me alone. I wouldn't bring my wife. I wish the shower would have been bigger!!!!! Lastly there was a little frig which was nice but it had some old ham and cheese in it!

    The shower took about 5-10 minutes to warm up, the first time we almost gave up thinking there was no hot water, then it was very hard to keep it at a consistent temperature as it kept fluctuating. The area is very noisy at night.

    Really nice spacious room with really comfortable beds. Large tv and Wi-Fi. Lots of places to eat nearby and only a ten minute walk to the messe if you are there for an exhibition.

    At check-in I mixed up the booking.
    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveller
    • King-Size Double Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    At check-in I mixed up the booking.com reservation no. 1156.601.332 (to be used in the machine) with the hotel reservation no. 156601332 (sent by separate e-mail - and useless), which delayed my key dispensing. Other guests had also difficulty getting their keys. I prefer hotels where somebody is in attendance most of the day. There is no lift in the hotel.

    Building site and no onsite breakfast.
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • 2 rooms
    • Stayed 1 night

    Literally a building site. Noisy building work began at 8 a.m. on the dot. Did not encounter a single staff member. Breakfast was included in rate but not available on site. We were directed to a Turkish restaurant 10 minutes walk away, via a notice in our rooms.. didn't bother with that and paid for breakfast elsewhere. We were visiting Essen to take a family member for medical treatment. If building works and lack of breakfast onsite had been made known at time of booking, I would have looked elsewhere.

    Hotel is in refurbishment. Due to the works, lot of dust in the staircase and in the room. No reception. Breakfast in a turkish restaurant nearby, quality not "usual" and strange for a european breakfast.

    Room quite big

    No parking space, only parking on public places. No wifi in the rooms, only in the restaurant. Rooms were ok, nothing special. Didn't have breakfast on the last day, an employee had overslept...

    Stay at Hotel Lorenz for business. There was a fare so this was the only hotel left. Location is good for people who go to the fare.

    It's basically nicely furnished ensuite rooms (think the stylish minimalism of IKEA) above a busy bar ie no reception or other facilities as such. Not a problem but just know what you are buying.
