I was there on a business trip. I wanted a center location with breakfast at a reasonable price and I was happy to find all in Ibis. My only concern was that the 2 twin beds were really close to each other.

well loaced in the City

Robert Business - 23/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The Hotel is very clean, the personal is very helpful ad friendly, the Room rates are fair, unfortunately because of Corona the bar is closed, otherwise it is always a nice plays to stay before going to bed. City center and Train station are close and also is my office, so this is my favorite place to stay when I'm in Essen.

Good stay

was good but a bit expensive

Dear IBRAHIM R., thank you for your booking and your feedback. It's good to hear that your stay was a pleasant one. You may already know that there are only a few ibis hotels with small rooms like our hotel. The majority of ibis hotels offer rooms that are more spacious. kind regards, Ibis Essen Hauptbahnhof Gerald Kosub

Excellent parking facility. Pleasant & efficient reception. Snack & coffee outrageously expensive, but service excellent. Very clean room. Bathroom/loo on the tiny side. Excellent breakfast - real value for money & very friendly service. Electronic card system (lift & parking) slight drama.

cost effective and comfortable, close to Hbf

Our stay was OK (as usual), but in the weekend we visited the breakfast buffet was overcrowded due to a large number of guests that all wanted their breakfast at the same time because of their scheduled bus departure. Both days the hotel staff had a hard time keeping the buffet filled and getting tables ready for the next guests.

Bad mattress

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Anonymous Business - 06/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

The bed mattress was obviously older and too soft in the middle. I couldn't sleep which is the top priority when booking hotel. I think the room number was 117. Also every smaller noise in the hallway was hearable. Also there was no carpet so the bed has slipped a lot on the wooden floor during my sleep. I'm probably not booking again here.

Jonathan B Couples - 26/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

Well situated for the centre of town and the train station, but not *too* near the station so not noisy. The expected Ibis standards of comfort, service and cleanliness -- thank you. Bathroom cramped but well equipped -- though usual problem of nowhere to put anything in the shower! Friendly and helpful staff -- all queries dealt with quickly and efficiently, and with a smile. Price of accommodation very reasonable, breakfast (adequate but not special) quite expensive! The air conditioning in our room did not work, but the windows opened (hurrah!) so we had adequate ventilation -- the weather was very warm for September. On-site secure parking was very handy, and reasonable at 10 euros per day. A great base for our activities in the area (exploring and visiting by train and car). Would certainly recommend it and would come here again.

A somewhat old lady, but still useful

TridentE6 Business - 17/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is located downtown, in the vicinity of the railway station, which as a frequent short-term business traveller I appreciate. I've never been to Essen before and I didn't have an opportunity to really see the city on this occasion, but the hotel itself is good enough

Ideal location for exploring the city

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Voyage11823665351 Couples - 15/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

Great location with secure carpark adjacent, friendly staff and clean rooms.The only negative is that someone on the fifth floor in one of the bedrooms beside the elevators was obviously ignoring the smoking ban, resulting in having to walk through the smell of stale cigarette smoke to get to and from our room.

Dear guest, thank you for your stay and your feedback. As mentioned we are 100 % smoke free hotel. Best Regards Christian Kellner
