        10.0

        This is a brilliant hotel! The service is impeccable, the rooms big, clean and new, the decor beautiful and the bathroom roomy. The only downside is that there is no fridge in the room. Breakfast was basic but delicious =) I had forgotten my engagement and wedding rings in the room, and they promptly found them and send them back to my home address =) AWESOME!

        On our last night in Essen we asked at reception if there was a computer we could use in order to print off our boarding passes for the following morning. The girl on reception told us that unfortunately there wasn't a computer available. She then logged on to our airline website and printed our boarding passes for us. When we asked about the possibility of getting a train the next morning to go back to Dusseldorf airport, she then went online and looked up and printed off the train timetable for us. We were both extremely impressed with her friendliness and the fact that she completely went out of her way to help us. Neither of us had seen a computer in the lobby of the hotel and so had resigned ourselves to having to go to the airport earlier the next morning to check-in - we were completely surprised that the girl did all the work for us!!!!!

        Neither of us would have any complaints to make about the hotel except maybe that there is no restaurant. The hotel isn't open all that long so perhaps that may be the reason why a restaurant hasn't opened yet. However it didn't make any difference to us as there are a lot of places to eat in the area.

        Location! Location! Location! Price is great. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Nice lounge. I'd stay there again if I was in Essen.

        Typical Motel One -- not enough space to hang clothes in the room. Breakfast room was very crowded on a Sunday morning. Had room above Lounge, a tad loud

        Fabulous location! Very kind staff, excellent breakfast, nice look, all new and modern. If ever I need to stay in Essen again, no doubt I'll stay here again!

        No high chairs for children.

        The room and the location.

        internet....did not work at all! I complained already by the lobby and mail. Realy bad situation. That is for me the reason that I will not choose your hotel again.

        Awesome quality and value for money, perfect for business/city break. Bang in middle of Essen, short walk from main station. Very comfortable, good breakfast, very moden hotel, great staff. 10/10

        Nothing at all. Will be back

        Nice decoration, excellent location 5 min. walk to essen main metro station, excellent value for money. I really liked the fact that no check out procedures are required.

        No phone in the room, incase of any emergency.

        Great hotel,do not be put of by the Motel name....

      • Group of friends
        9.2

        Very stylish, very clean, very good breakfast, but it has to be included in the price to have the proper value for the money. Perfect location, but guests with a car have to calculate additional costs for parking (on Sat. too), because of the very central location!

        The WiLAN was not working properly (or at all), when many people are logged in. The Log-In procedure is very uncomfortable - every single guest needs different user and pass for the lobby and for his room. For example 2 guests in a double room need 4 usernames for every different location or person. Too much log in - log out - it has to be a service not a torture !

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        It is near Essen Main Station, and not so expensive.

      • Single
        10.0

        The best thing about Motel One Essen is that though it is located in the city-centre, it has a calm and quiet atmosphere.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Well designed room, not big but O.K. Nice Hotel. Good position. Super Brekki.

        G&t €8.40, €4 in other outlets.:-(

      • Couple
        7.4

        Nice room with clean towels and bed sheets. Comfortable bed, good thermostat. Good walking distance from the main train station, right downtown, surrounded by shopping malls and stores.

        I would appreciate if the wireless connection were free in the rooms (it is currently free at the lobby only).
