5.8 Okay
Pros: Clean and the possibility to go shopping nearby.
Cons: It was the night of the champions league, 24.10.18. I was for business in Dortmund and booked a double room with a big bed (manage better the fotos of the location on booking.com please!) for 145 € and 18 m² in Essen and got a 9 m² room + 6 m² bathroom, totally 15 m². The answer was "it is the night of the champion league and for these reason it is so expensive - we don´t have other rooms. If you don´t agree you can go for another hotel" - it was already 18:30 o´clock!. I told them that I would have remained in Dortmund for this price for a single room. After a telephone call with the manager he cut the price to 89 €. It was o. k., but I couldn´t enjoy my stay anymore.

Go to reception to get a wristband so you can go as many times as you like to the buffets - including some hot and cold drinks
Cons: Cheaper room cost is the only thing that comes to mind. Oh, and making the way from a front door to reception a bit better signposted - we had to ask help from a speaker using one of the meeting rooms.

4.0 Okay
Pros: Located near street with enough food options and 10min walk to Messe Essen.
Cons: A bit tired and worn but passable as I was attending nearby trade show. Not for a holiday!!!. Room has a musty look and feel. Staff don't seem to smile and when asking for something it seems like an imposition. Had misplaced key and all they told me was there are no spare keys and wanted €25 for a new one?? Grossly over priced but was peak time because of said trade show... Same price in Bali would get a palace. Off peak would have to be cheaper!
4.0 Okay
Pros: Very centrally located and the staff are extremely helpful. A Supermarket and good restaurants located within about 5 minutes walking time. The bed is comfortable.
Cons: Rooms and bathroom are very small. The shower cubicle is very small. There is no in house phone in the room- so when the fire alarm went off in the middle of the night, there was no way to check on what the issue was with the reception.
6.0 Good
Pros: Convenient location, mostly friendly staff.
Cons: Door missing on shower, no hairdryer, heating barely functional, door locks require a lot of fiddling to open, no irons available except in the check in area. I reported the missing door but it wasn’t fixed during my stay.
