    We found the receptionist quite frosty on arrival and he did not respond well to questions we asked.

    We loved the terrace for sitting out in the evening. A good breakfast as well.

    I am not so happy about using an unprotected WiFi server (with no login password). I know it is extra admin work - but these days it is important.

    The hotel itself has a lovely little terrasse on the first floor where you can sit outside in the evenings. Within 10 minutes walking distance of the University Clinic Essen as well as the Gruga Park, this was the ideal location for business and a lovely day off. One can spend an entire day in the park, there is so much to see, reasonable food at the restaurant / cafe Orangerie - but the highlight in May is the rhodedendron "forest" in full bloom - such a riot of colours you cannot imagine! You can also see the Hundredwasser house commissioned to be built by Roland McDonald, subsequently donated to his foundation to help sick children as accommodation for the parents (so you cannot enter the house). In the evening a 5 minute walk to the superb Italian restaurant "Bei Valentino", Kortumstr. 46 - everything freshly prepared according to your own wishes!

    Wonderful small hotel

    The dear little Ruhr Hotel is a type of the well-run businessman and family-type hotel in Germany. It is not deluxe. The rooms are relatively small but everything is clean and functional. The staff is well-informed and for the most part friendly (extremely friendly in the case of the wonderful woman who welcomed us on Saturday evening and was helpful in every way). The location in a beautifully quiet neighborhood is good for the Aalto Opera (walkable to). It is a short walk from the hotel to a street full of restaurants. A short walk also to the beautiful art museum. The Ruhr Hotel is useful in many ways. It is miraculously inexpensive. It remains a favorite hotel of mine. I have stayed there twice now and would happily stay there again

    1. "Free parking" was not available. We were told to find the parking spot on the street and cover the parking fee by ourselves. 2. Wi-fi signal was residual in the room on the second floor. Worked only downstairs, by the reception. 3. Staff not exactly speaking english :(

    Very clean room, With very nice, big and clear bathroom. Very nice breakfast, variety of products, fresh. Great price for such location and room quality.

    I ordered a room for two. We got in a room for one person. As everything else was full, they didn't change it. They didn't even think of checking it - I had to go and tell them to get an extra set of towels and bedstuff. and then I had to carry it myself. An absolute no-go.
