Travellers' Choice
We are a privately run hotel with 97 rooms, which is only 5 minutes from the German Football Museum and only 10 minutes on foot from the railway station. Our strength is that we have two different room categories. Our first class rooms are all furnished as double rooms and have a minimum size of 23 sqm. These have been completely re-installed in 2007 and are characterized by a very high level of comfort such as, for example, Air conditioning, coffee and tea making facilities, LCD TV and a large desk. Our standard single rooms are about 16 square meters and equipped with LCD TV, 1x1 meter mattress and mini bar. The new bathrooms in all standard rooms are positive. In summer 2017 the standard rooms were renovated and equipped with air conditioning. A chic industrial design with many extras will surprise the guest. Furthermore we have a small wellness area with Finnish sauna and fitness room as well as 4 meeting rooms, which have direct access to our Mediterranean courtyard. Our advantage is that the guests have free Highspeed Internet and can park on one of our 36 parking spaces for 10,00 Euro per day!

This is a typical German small, clean hotel - located close to the central train station. Friendly reception at the front desk. The lounge is very small. Located in the Ruhr Region The internal designer covered the walls with dark photographs depicting coal mining scenes, which is somewhat depressing.

Only there for a night, but had a peaceful evening with a nice sauna break. The rooms are medium-sized but well organized and equipped. The staff was helpful both late in the evening and early for checkout.

Everything was clean and tidy, staff were really nice. This is a family run hotel so you can really feel the personal touch. The breakfast was also really good. And there is a nice little bar which is always open if you feel like having a drink after a long days work.

The Esplanade has it all. Friendly service-minded staff, modern rooms, comfortable bed with soft bed linen and great water pressure. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Parking available in the basement, U-bahn station a few hundred meters from the hotel and pharmacy and groceries on the way. I wish I’d had time to sit in the bar and enjoy a beer - I’m still smitten with Germany and the hotel scene there 👏

Stayed here for two nights during a trip to watch Borussia Dortmund. Although not in the most picturesque of locations it is close to the main square and the underground station to the stadium. Only a 10 minute walk from the main station too. The room was very spacious and comfy with a good minibar. The bathroom was well fitted with a really powerful shower. Breakfast was ok, a decent selection of hot and cold items but nothing too extravagant. Overall, no complaints, it served exactly the purpose I wanted.

Stayed here one night and was delighted with the hotel. The grounds are clean and nice and the rooms, although quaint, have everything you need. The breakfast is well worth it too. City center is a very short walk away and the rest of the city is easily accessible from the metro there.
