I stayed there for a night. Location of the hotel was perfect, rooms were good enough with all facilities. Breakfast in the morning has a good variety. In addition, there is lounge bar to get drunk. Totally recommend it.

Spent a weekend in Essen staying in Motel One. Centrally located, super easy parking, unground and cheap at Euro 10 for 24 hrs.. The rooms are clean, simple, stylish and functional. The air condition functions extremely well. The reception staff and bar staff were very friendly, smartly presented and competent. The bar area and barman, Michael, was extremely helpful, good interaction with the guests, great selection of gins and cocktails. Good breakfast selection. Highly recommended, good price / performance. Many thanks for a good experience.

I have stayed in most of the Motel Ones. This one many times. It's in a wonderful building on the Kennedy Square which also has a convenient well-organised underground car park (keep in mind the opening and closing times. If they suit you, it's good to know that your car is safely locked away at night).
The staff are friendly and professional. The 7th floor has some balcony rooms, and if you are in luck, some of the other rooms are much larger than you would ever expect.
The lounge-bar is a great place to be and get a drink, and or a toasted sandwich, and it's also possible to sit outside and watch all the citty bustle.
The rooms are what you expect at a Motel One: clean, quiet and comfortable.
The hotel is a good base to sart a journey further into Europe and beyond by car, rail or plane. Essen is also a great place to go shopping, go to a concert/theatre, and art museum.
I partcularly like standing in this hotel's hallway and following the modernist stair-case as it snakes it's way up the higher floors.

Room Tip: The upper floors give a great view over Essen and its surroundings. Even the fromt rooms are quiet if there are events on the square.

Well located. Amidst marketplace and close to Essen railway station. Courteous staff.
Rooms are small but comfortable. Bare minimum facilities and no frills.

Only drawback experienced is no in-house kitchen, so no food available on order when needed. Also no english channel on television.
Hotel management should think of international customers too as far as food and entertainment is concerned.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We provide some nice little snacks in our lounge bar. All Motel One Hotels are located very centrally, with a lot of restaurants nearby. In Essen, e.g. you find 10 or more restaurants within a short walking distance. That is why we do not offer own restaurants at our properties. For the TV-Channls we will check with our technical department. Thank you for the hint!
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon.

Sincerely,
Nicole Werner & Motel-One-Essen-Team
Hotel Manager

Not my first visit and definitive not the last.
The price is right and the rooms are nice.
This time we had a very nice room on the 4th floor with view to the city.
Everybody friendly and helpful and the location just perfect without being noisy.
