This hotel was booked on my behalf for a business trip but was great. Located next to the railway station, supply a rail ticket FOC. Wifi supplied, good breakfast - did not use restaurant during evening. Very helpful staff. Room comfortable and clean. Happy to use again and will also check out the chain for other trips.

Typical business hotel in the city center. Convenient for shopping and going out for dinner. We stayed on a Friday night and the restaurant was closed. Not a problem as there are plenty of places to eat in the area. Room is a reasonable size, comfortable and clean. Bathroom with a good shower. Beds are a little hard for my... More

Given its central location, this hotel is satisfactory for an overnight stay. However, (i) it's somewhat overpriced for what one gets, and (ii) doesn't offer a particularly swift breakfast service, which one really does need in this type of establishment.

The hotel's location is perfect, just next to the central station and on walking distance from the huge shopping centers. I asked the cleaning ladies to change my bed sheets and they kindly did it. The Internet connection is a bit slow and the price is high in compare to what you get.

Was here for only one night. Arrived by train and walked for only 5 minutes before I arrived at the hotel. If you arrive at night, by yourself, you might feel a bit lonely in this area but honestly, main train stations areas are rarely "pretty". C/I was efficient and you got everything you needed. The room was quiet, clean... More

If all you want is a bed for the night, then this hotel is ok. However, the Internet access is terrible, the restaurant was shut when I stayed, the breakfast is poor and you get nothing in your room except a bottle of water and an undersized thin duvet. In short, this hotel is as soulless as the City of... More

The InterCity in Essen is spotlessly clean, modern, convenient for the Station and City Centre and offers excellent value if you book well in advance. Unfortunately because Essen is a city with an exhibition centre and also close to Düsseldorf rooms can get very pricey when availability is tight.

Internet speed of 0.17-0.58 and a constantly dropping connection is a real irritation if you have to send mails or use Internet. The TV has channels in Deutsch only (whilst Essen pretends to be an international business Center). Special request for a firm pillow was not fulfilled, but bed was ok and bathroom adequate. There is no complimentary water bottle... More
