    The shower was clean but mouldy. Some spider webs in the room. The breakfast buffet had a great variety of food, but the overall taste wasn't very impressive. The hotel is right next to a constructions site. It was very quiet during the weekend, but might be noisy during the week.

    The gym and the swimming pool were excellent. The rooms were quiet and overall clean. The breakfast buffet offered a great variety of food. The parking at the property was at a good price. It was overall convenient and comfortable.

    The bathrooms are a tad too small for comfort and the shower is small/medium sized. The full carpeted floors in the room are up for renewal, or better, removal and could be changed into hardwood. The soap dispenser in the bathroom is not very handy and the offered soap could be upgraded to something nicer, but that is just a detail....

    You can charge your EV/Hybrid on the charging station free-of-charge. There is only one connection, but it was free for me to use! Top. Breakfast is good, the egg selection could be extended a bit, and it would be nice to have the option for more coffee varieties. I need to say that I didn't really ask for this. Staff at the reception desk and in the restaurant is both efficient and very friendly! Every question was answered and it always happened with a genuine smile.

    The staff were not very friendly, especially the bar staff who even asked if we wanted our change back ( we handed them 40 euros for a 35 euro bill )from a round of drinks that we actually ordered and carried from the bar ourselves. We do believe in tipping if we feel that we received good and polite service.

    Superb location for the Techno Classica event at Messe Essen which was a pleasant twenty minute walk away.

    Location is a bit out of city centre. Needed bus to get to S-Bahn. My mobile internet is faster than the hotel wi-fi. No safe. No coffeemaker. You need to pass along the bar to get to the sauna. Sauna open to the public. Only one towel provided, no soap.

    Good sauna and gym. Hotel is spacious with a good bar. Countryside setting. Close to public transport. Taxis always available outside.

    - Breakfast in room service was poor: per person 1 sandwich, 1 croissant, a few slices of waldkorn bread, a few slices of meat and cheese, 2 jams, 1 hardboiled egg... no fruit, no yoghurt, no choice in cheese, no selection of various types of bread, etc. Also, 1 cup of coffee and 1 small glass of fruit juice is also below standards, especially when it comes to the coffee - Not an issue for us, but the hotel is located in a business park, not much else in the surrounding area unless you take the car or bus

    - Clean hotel and room, an example to many hotels - Good to very good food (we tried the room service menu), a lot of hotels could learn from this... even if the pasta we got wasn't on the menu - Choice of facilities e.g. pool

    The bathrooms were on the small side and the rooms could do with airco considering that during our visit, temperatures were 25+ degrees.

    The spa/sauna facilities were excellent and so was the swimming pool. The highlight was of course the breakfast - served until 14:00 PM on Sundays. The checkout is also at the same time which was the icing on the cake.

    The whole place feels a bit over-rated for a 4 star hotel. Everything was adequate, just not exceptional. Definitely a hotel geared towards short business stays, rather than other types of trips.

    We were charged extra for the dogs, although they were no problem - other hotels do not charge. 6 euros per day parking is milking it a bit - considering what this hotel charges, parking should be free, ie clients not charged or reimbursed.

    Although I was a non-smoker, I was automatically allocated a smoking room, which was VERY smoky. I don't recall being asked if I wanted a smoking room, and the default assumption really should be a non-smoking room. Also, the hotel has very limited options for dinner, (just the hotel's restaurant) and has no reasonably-priced 'snack' options if you don't want to pay for a full-on sit-down meal. As it's not particularly close to any other places to eat, one feels a bit trapped by the options on offer. Finally, I was there for the Spiel weekend, and the poor barman was worked off his feet and really could have used help. Some regulars to this trade show say that the hotel is ALWAYS short-staffed for this show, and they should really be able to plan ahead for this, shouldn't they?

    The hotel is in a good position for the Messe.

    The staff was always rushed. Sometimes friendly but more often not. In spite of booking my room 8 months in advance, I got an old smoking room wherein it was impossible to sleep, made me cough all night for 3 nights, room provided a smaller space than I paid for and was indicated on the website, the room was really dusty, the bathroom was full of spider webs under the sink, and there were some under the beds. Front desk made me pay the parking fees twice! When I asked to get an exchange to the room I paid for, they said they were fully booked and couldn't help. When I asked the manager for a new room he finally gave me... Another smoking room that smelled like tobacco and old plastic (burnt plastic smell from the hair blower). The breakfast and dinner food looks good on paper but everything was really sweet or fat and greesy. Impossible to get a decent healthy breakfast with fruits provided from a jar/tin can, fatty potatoes, blend scrambled eggs and concentrated fruit juices. The swimming pool was cold and there was no signs of the jacuzzi that was mentioned on the website and in the reviews (fake reviews then?). Reception is not clean (boards full of dust and spider webs in preparation for halloween in advance perhaps?). The mentioned massage room was not available during the whole 4 days that I was there. Everything that made me book this hotel wasn't delivered. Pity because the hotel has potential but is definitely not a 4 stars rating, more like 2. On the last day when packing some of my toiletries items were broken. Great. I told all about it to the front desk at checkout and they said "can't do anything sorry". They didn't propose any refund or discount which is the minimal decent thing to do. Too bad, they lost a customer forever and I will make sure my friends and acquaintances never book here in the future. Really disappointed. I will not return.

    It is close to the Messe by walk and bus. The bar provides good drinks. Conference rooms at disposal to play games during Essen spiel. Easy access to bus and taxis.

    Not overly impressed with the main restaurant's menu choice and rather aloof atmosphere. Still plenty of smoker rooms in the hotel bedrooms.

    Breakfast was plentiful. Good coffee. Easy access to main roads.

There are also 57 reviews without text. These impact the overall review score.
