Reviewed 16 March 2017

It's a bit out of the town centre and looks a bit 1970s or Soviet in style from the outside, but inside its all very efficient, clean and welcoming. Very friendly and helpful front desk staff, large rooms (though a bit dark, could do with more lights). Breakfast buffet was usual business hotel, pretty good.

Dear Mrs./Mr. D! Thank you very much for your comment about our house here on TripAdvisor. We have never heard a comparison with a "Soviet 70's style house" form the outside, interesting to read. But overall you have been satisfied with the services provided, which makes us grateful and is a motivation to improve our services and standards. We would...

I had a very pleasant 2 day stay for a business visit to the Essen area. Very friendly staff, nice clean room with good design. The hotel has a good location with quick access to the autobahn. Nice bar and restaurant. I had dinner at the restaurant and was impressed with the food quality. Limited menu but good vegetarian choices...

Rooms are comfy if a little small, food is OK, staff are freindly and welcoming. The only real gripe is that I found the rooms stiflingly hot staying there in the summer and it's by a main road so noisy if you open the window. It's not terribly convenient for the U-bahn

Dear Dsaronni, Thank you very much for that wonderful feedback here on Tripadvisor. And you are absolutely right! - Our house needs to be more characteristic regarding this area of Germany. Therefore we will redecorate the restaurant as well as the lobby in the upcoming winter break (December/January). We would be very pleased to welcoming you again, Yours sincerely, Best...

I hadn't stayed here in a while, but was glad I went back again. I had forgotten how good it is! The staff were friendly as always, very relaxed, and the breakfast has only gotten better (and went on until 1pm!!!!). Their check-out is 12pm, an hour later than most places, but when 12 comes and if you're still in...

Might be a bit unjust as I've arrived rather late and left early in the morning, but most of what I've seen didn't impress me. The room was more Ibis standard, a lot of cheap stuff, plastic shower and the sheets weren't fully clean (some lints on it) also he room was smelling heavily after cigarettes (I'm a smoker, so...

Located close to Ruttenscheider Strasse, Ypsilon enjoys very good connectivity through U-bahn and S-bahn, 10 mins walk away and Bus, 2-3 mins walk away. Ruttenscheid has some of the best restaurants in Essen. An excellent Chinese Imbiss is a 5-min walk towards Ruttenscheid. Rooms are small, with a nice bed. Best thing about Ypsilon is its breakfast buffet. With a...

This hotel was a little off the beaten track compared to our previous Essen visits but it was worth the stay. It appears a little basic at times but offers all that you would want from a hotel.
