It is located directly opposite the main railway station and also at the beginning of the shopping area. It has the charm of the 80/90s, but it's all all right. Everything there in the room, flat screen, safe, minibar. Top: Bathtub. read hotel review

The hotel is right by the station and therefore very central. Only stayed for a short stay and we noticed it. The last room on the floor, where all the ventilation systems in the room were, you could not be turned off. The decor in the room was very dated, 80 ger years style, but at the front desk modern.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    The breakfast was hearty and with enough selection of cold and warm meals, on request, they got a omelets or fried eggs freshly prepared. The hotel itself is also ' jimmy's bar ' in which you the conclusion of a day in a pleasant ambience spend can. Also 'internal' is the restaurant handelshof which we outside the breakfast however not taken into account have.

  • Room
    5.0

    The booked superior room (see pictures) was in our eyes big enough and with the for a city tour necessary ' comfort ' like for instance safety deposit box. Minibar and air conditioning, we did not needed. The room cleaning there was no reason to complain. Despite the hustle and bustle around the hotel (main train station and the pedestrian zone), it is in the room itself at least with the window closed quiet. Otherwise there is one before the decision windows and noise or alternatively the air conditioning to use.

  • Location
    6.0

    The Mövenpick Hotel in food in our opinion due to the optimal location the perfect choice for a city tour. It is located directly opposite the main railway station and at the beginning of the long pedestrian/shopping. In the same building is also the checking-in building. The stop for the buses of the city tours is less than 20 meters away. Due to the direct location in the pedestrian area has the hotel itself no parking, but the garage akazienallee (1 0 €daily fee) is just 150 meters away – a (small) credit to the parking is at the front desk of the hotels available.

    The hotel is very conveniently located at the beginning of the fußgängerszone town opposite the essen main station. At night it is despite train and partygänger quiet. For shopping you only had to leave the hotel and you are in the middle of 'the' shopping in kohlepott. Nightclubs, bars and restaurants are within easy walking distance.

    The rooms were very classic with rattan furnishings, the style is pleasant and unobtrusive. The decor is completely, everything worked well. Good beds, good, spacious bathroom. The rooms are by the way in different colors available (this time dark wood with dark blue upholstery, at a previous stay lime with pink textiles).

    The restaurant is very pleasant, the service also here very friendly. The breakfast is excellent, the choice and quality of products left no wishes unfulfilled. Good memories are about the delicious Mövenpick-salmon and the whole honeycomb we could have stayed longer. The dinner was in contrast rather weak: the undertow. 'antipastibüfett' was less extensive stocked than hoped for, the collection in the promotion flyer quite long, the note, that this is only a selection of potential products was, relatively discreet. The steak tartar was very good and nicely served. The bar is a matter of taste. Probably like you people, the bars like. It is rather the type 'cave', not a lobby-bar.

    The breakfast was great, but unfortunately somewhat less selection, as in other mövenpicks in which we already were. At the time when we were there was just fair in essen, so was the appropriate action for breakfast. As far as we could see, the breakfast room only by 2 service staff served. Here should the hotel these impact times on increasing reflection! We partly for a very long time for the clearing of the table-ware waited. The evening offered antipasti buffet we found for the offer definitely too expensive, after we looked at had, we declined and then outside the hotel in the evening looked after.
