My wife and I spent two nights at this hotel. The service was first class particularly the reception staff, the room was spacious and the place was clean and tidy. The breakfast was good; a selection of cold meats, cheese, breads and a hot section as well. The car parking was fine - plenty of space (unlike some older hotels)...

For business reasons over the last 3 years I have stayed in Essen very often. As stated, I cannot exactly count how many nights I spent in this particular hotel but by my estimation it is more than 150. Whenever Mercure Plaza is available, it is always my first choice. The team (bartenders, reception, waiters, cleaners, management) is fantastic all...

We stayed at the impressive Mercure Hotel Plaza Essen just for one night, at the beginning of the month, for my wife’s professional reasons. We booked a non-smoking “privilege” room with courtyard view, as advised by other reviewers, to avoid street noise. The room was spacious and equipped in modern style. The bed was comfortable and we slept very well,...

A very nice business hotel centrally located in Essen. The rooms are quite New and spacious. The breakfast was good and the staff friendly and spoke very well English. The hotel also has a restaurant and a bar-area. Great for a 2 or 3 days stay.

Looking for better rate and service and BB offers, and or halfnoard with longer working hours for room service and restaurants. A kind of transport or shuttle bus to/ from train station will make this property the best in Essen
