    The parking in the parking garage of the hotel was very convenient. The staff in the restaurant was very friendly and accommodating and the food was excellent. Lucky to be there in the asparagus season. The rooms are of a good size and very clean. The area is nice and quiet, so yes we can recommend this hotel!

    We just wanted a nice place to spend the night on our way back to Denmark. This hotel exceeded all our expectations. The food in the restaurant is amazing and the location is as lovely as it can get, a residential area with gorgeous houses. I read some people complaining about the price of the breakfast and I can’t understand such complaint. The breakfast is really good with many options and it is only 12 euros. How can that be expensive for a full great breakfast? Lovely place. Highly recommended.

    Friendly and helpful personnel. The location is close to Messe, it's 15 min walk though the park and 5 min by taxi. The restaurant served fine dishes (not very German like)

    Price of the breakfast is a bit to high, even for German standards. Everything was there although.

    Although not in the centre of Essen, this location in an old suburb for the more wealthy citizens was very pleasant. Quite room in a very nice hotel. You don't have the impression to sleep in the Ruhr area at all. Parking was for free. Check the parking sign of the marketplace in front of the hotel. You can park for free most of the days, but on some days they have a small local market and you have to park somewhere else on time.

    The air condition was set on a specific temperature and fan speed and I couldn't change it. The room was too hot at this very hot day. My room was replaced for a slightly colder room, however I would prefer a personal control over the temperature in the room.

    Friendly staff, quite neighborhood, breakfast, size of the room

    AC was not working at all. We stayed for 4 nights and the first night was very warm, hard to sleep, but the weather cooled off after that so the room cooled off enough at night with the windows open. Breakfast is very expensive. Better to go around the corner to the bakery for breakfast or across the square to the grocery store.

    Beautiful location on a square in historic community. Modern facilities. There is a farmer's market in the square on Wed & Sat mornings.

    When we were making the booking for two adults and one child (11) we were only given the option of a double & single room which we had to pay for. As it turned out we could have had a rollout bed and only pay for one room!!

    Lovely area to walk around, would love to buy a house there!!

    Nothing, really.

    I stayed for a night at Mintrops and it was totally wonderful! The staff are welcoming and friendly; the check-in was smooth and quick. The surrounding area is a quiet residential cultural heritage, and a stroll around the hotel is recommended. This place is QUIET. There is really nothing much other than the beautiful houses; on Wednesday and Saturday mornings there is a market right in front of the hotel (Markttag), and opposite the hotel there is an EDEKA mini market, a bakery and a pharmacy around the corner, and that's it. This is the place for someone who wants to get away from the buzz light, yet remained merely 10min by train to the city center.

    Can't think of anything to write here.

    Very professional service at every step of the way. The suite we booked (for 3 people) was the height of luxury. Great beds, super modern and clean bathroom, fantastic balcony with a view over the market square. Adequate on-street (free) parking, or optional garage parking for Eur9 per day. The location of this hotel is right in the middle of everything you might want to see around Essen, for example, lakes, old towns and other tourist sites.

    • Family with older children

    When we arrived I was already impressed with the location. The hotel itself looked classic but was decorated with adorable christmas lights. The lobby was very modern and different from the architecture outside. The room was incredible! We had the 3 person room and the masterbedroom was amazingly big, but the bathroom was the best. It was huge! It has two sinks a shower AND a seperate bath. The third person slept in a seperate room with a seperate bath and we had a huge balcony. It was so much more luxery than we expected for the price. I would really recommend it to anybody. The personel was great and very friendly. One of the employees showed us their 150 year old dining room they now use for meetings. It was really impressive and when you stay here you should really ask about it! They also allow late check outs like its no problem.
