It was nice and clean but a bit far from city there where no shop around this hotel
Stayed in the hotel for only seven hours and did not see much besidesour room. No
Location of the hotel, near to the Veltins Arena Stadium and the motorway.
My roo was lovely and quiet, well decorated and the buffet breakfast in the morning was fantastic the free minibar only had one alcoholic drink in it and that was a bottle of german beer
Nice room and nice/firendly people. This is the hotel where I like to stay. Everything is smooth, well organised, quiet.... Time to check in was too long but still acceptable.
good undercroft parking, rooms spacy and nicely decorated. The restaurant offers a good menu and breakfast was enjoyable. There is very little to do in the hotel and to go out you will need a taxi. But if you are by car there is no problem. But the thing I disliked most was the smoking in the restaurant. Although we asked for a non-smoking table we were seated next to a table of smokers.
Very nice hotel, good staff, very polite and friendly, helpful at all times Not much to do in the area.
very nice rooms - quite envirement - good service and fantastic restaurant
Very comfortable and well equipped rooms. Excellent breakfast and very friendly staff.
Accessability & very helpful staff on front desk Maybe it was in the small print but I would consider + € 17 for breakfast to be very expensive. Room rate of > € 100mm should include breakfast in my opinion
Although beginning to look a little dated we had a comfortable stay and our room layout was ideal for our wants. Excellent breakfast choices. The service in the 'Pub' in the evening was suprisingly poor and slow even though it wasn't full.
Breafast Very old dangerous lift, price is so high, + breafast 17 EUR/day, +parking 9 EUR/day, massages only to 6 p.m., problems to pay by credit card, smell at corridors, smoking people at hotel gate, neverending noise of ambulance cars from near hospital
The staff throughout the hotel were very helpfull and friendly. Great location for the Speedway GP at Veltins though the town was quiet No
Helpful and very efficient staff; spacious rooms; tastefully decorated public rooms; delicious food and relaxed atmosphere. Location near a very busy main road.
Politeness and helpfulness of staff, location
The location near the tram , rooms were comfortable, staff were pleasant beverages and breakfast costs are very high
all the staff was pleasant and helpful Breakfast, we found there was not much choice and some of the hot food was cold beans, scrambeld egg etc.
very friendly staff. Absolutely no problems regarding anything. I stayed there for the Love parade.
Location and comfort Not keen on continental breakfasts but that is what you get on the continent so there is no fault with the booking
convenient with good rooms, facilities and helpful staff smell of stale cigarette smoke got into the public areas of the hotel
small and cosy. located well for business. staff v friendly. value for money.
The reception is only open until 10 pm, wich can be difficult sometimes. The room was good, but las maintenance was not good.
The hotel seemed family run and they were very friendly and helpful. I travel around Europe fairly often and this is definitely one the best hotels I have stayed at. The bar downstairs is a big plus too :)
very friendly service on the front desk and durimg breakfast
The restaurant No
Easy to find and central. Smoking smell throughout the hotel and next to the dining room
Everything was good/excellent except parking facility ! Hotel parking was full !
it was a good value 4 money! breakfast was nice, the staff were wellcoming & i loved the bar in the hotel. nothing!
The front desk staff are really nice, helpful and approachable. A little bit too expensive on little things like small pack of peanuts and beverages which I recon should be free.
clean The service at the bar was very slow in fact we ordered 2 coctails on saturday night and even after half an hour we still hadn't got them so we told the girl not to bother and went up to our room. Also refills of coffee, sugar and milk in the room weren't done and the staff explained that they had problems with the mini bar staff
Room was excellent Bar and restaurant were too expensive. €8 for a half litre of beer and €23 for a breakfast was too much. I paid €23 for an omlette a coffee and an orange juice. Too much.
Excellent service and friendly staff Nothing
The service from the staff went beyond expectation. All of the staff were professional yet friendly and helpful. A wonderful experience. I enjoyed everything about the Sheraton and will stay there again.
Overall an enjoyable stay!
sitting on the terras adjacent a beautiful park for lunch and dinner enjoying light meals during terribly hot summer days.
discreet ,knowledgable and hospitable staff not enough desert selection for breakfast,(fruits or sweet cakes etc..)
Everything was fine and the staff very helpfull
They did everything well but the place lacked some warmth and character
The service was excellent, staff was perfect, so clean. Nothing at all.
Excellent value, beautifully appointed rooms, super-friendly staff, breakfast buffet was varied and plentiful, I would recommend this hotel highly.
Very friendly staff and excellent location to shops and restraunts
The staff was amazing, very friendly and helpful. The room was huge, well-equipped and impeccably clean. Excellent breakfast, plenty of choice given the size of the hotel. Wished to have stayed a little longer, will certainly return when in the area.
The owners was Great, helpfull & friendly!whatever i ask they inform me imidiatelly!it was a nice, clean, and warm room. the breakfast was rich, had everything!so its a nice place to spend few days....and its worth it....!
Excellent and friendly personal (owners), room was very comfort and clean, free internet and very good breakfast
Very helpfull and nice hotelstaff. Very good breakfast and clean and excellent room.
Well presented hotel, close to local shops and restaurants, staff very friendly, attentive and helpful. Pleasant room, nice choice of breakfast buffet. -
Excellent hotel, quiet location, the nicest people, spacious and well maintained rooms, oh, and did I mention the fantastic breakfast already? I was at Medica in Düsseldorf which was a 45 minutes ride away but would still return here next year.
The hotel is well known to me and doesn't just maintain it's excellent past but has improved on it. The hotel is very clean, run by a very pleasant and helpful husband and wife. Breakfast is as good as it gets. Hotels rooms are fitted out to a very high stanard.
Quality of the room compared to the price (very good), friendly staff, great cocktails!
I think the best part of my stay was the friendliness of the hotel staff. In addition, the buffet breakfast was very good. I thought that the price for parking was fairly expensive. A possible suggestion is to maybe have a parking pass for hotel guests that are staying more than one night.
The reception staff were very helpful and courteous. My wife was taken ill and they helped to get help as my German was insufficient. I had trouble connecting to the lobby WiFi with my Mac Book. This took me 30 minuted to sort out with the reception help. In the room there was no problem.
Quiet and comfortable. Great breakfast and convenient location.
Comfortable bed plus convenient location and decent breakfast...
I attended to the famous iranian signer GOOGOOSH So comfortable
Could not connect to wifi
The food was super!, Very nice bar, with good barman and they have a huge collection of whisky
good location, reasonable price extra money for breakfast
this hotel needs parking
Friendly welcome from the staff. I stayed over in a superior room which was comfy, modern and clean. Very good hotel. No free wifi internet access
Comfortable, clean , modern, good breakfast. I missed a health spa. I had a small break and wanted to have a massage but could not get it because I needed a 2 hour booking.
Everything was of a very high standard and in very good locaion which was ideal for our stay (The Essen Motorshow). The staff were very helpful, the food was very good and we look forward to booking again next year for a larger party. There was one thing.... There is not enough seating in the bar!!
The location was very good near to the centre; I like especially the good breakfast. I would have needed another pillow, but there were no extras available.
Hotel was nice and clean, breakfast was decent.
We got a suite insted of a room for the same price!
the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. the cleanliness of the hotel. no
Breakfast and restaurant is better than you can expect.
The staff (at front desk, bar, restaurant) was very friendly and helpful, accomodating and competent. The open showers; the water spills on bathroom floor. Missed an exercise room.
Comfortable room Had to pay for parking, €8 euros per day, even though the website said there was free parking on site and that it didn't have to be reserved.
The free local transport ticket thats included in the room price a very good offer. I think that the breakfast should also be included in the room price.
Friendly staff, Great breakfast
the politeness of the staff no
Free travel pass and good central location Restaurant was a bit small
Desk staff were warm, welcoming and efficient. My room was very clean and comfortable. Also, hotel was 150 meters or so from the entrance to the Gelsenkirchen main railway station. Hotel was reasonably priced, so it was very good value for money. As the hotel is not immediately visible from the exit of the railway station, they need to improve their signage to help the first time visitor to the hotel. There is a sign for the hotel inside the station, but it was not helpful. As far as the room is concerned, it only offered three channels of free TV (although it offered pay channels).
Helpfulness of staff
Good location within easy walking distance of main railway station . Good facilities and comfortable room. On site parking. No free internet access for guests without a laptop
It was in a good place in the city and near the railwaystation Small room for breakfast
location, friendliness of staff charges for parking car.
kind staff, proper
the friendliness of the staff and the location.Plus the quality of the breakfast buffet everything was good
Food - both dinner and breakfast were excellent
It's convenience to the Centro,tram station and the healthy breakfasts!
We went to Koenig-Pilsener-Arena and attended On a Dark Winter's Night concert / festival. The business in the breakfast area, it's neither very inviting, nor well organized.
My room was clean and spacious, the staff was friendly and helpful.
Great location , healthy breakfast, helpful staff. Bedroom was too warm.
Service oriented hotel staff - gave us a bigger room seeing that we are travelling with a young child. Spacious and clean room.
Price is very convenient, location is excellent for theater and for the shopping mall close by. Very easy to reach with public transport from the main train station I would have liked a little bit more light in the room (no light on the ceiling where the bed is, it was a little dark at night)
the bar and breakfast
Parking at the back of the hotel. Nice and clean bathroom. The double room is very, very small. The old-fashioned windows open in such way you can't use the blinds - so you have to decide, air or light. Noise was incredible, the bus stop directly under the window. Extremely hot room, no sleep at all. Small beds. Nothing interesting in the street of the hotel. Breakfast not included in the room price. Bad, bad, bad experience.
Booked hotel because of family room & could sleep four, price was good for three nights & was close to everything we needed to get to.Very good breakfast / dinning area upstairs, had breakfast only the once during the stay, food was very good with selection of cereals, bacon & eggs, fruit, cold meats & cheese etc. Pub on ground floor, so you can get back & have a drink in the evening, they do small menu for food. Our room was a family room, pull-out sofa bed which would sleep 2 & one double bed, TV, mini bar, en-suite. The room was clean if only a little dated in its appearance, looks like they are doing up rooms in stages. Very helpful staff, who spoke english, also close by car to movie park germany, ski center bottrop & centro shopping dated room decor & furniture, bathrooms need re-vamp.
the location is not good, little far from city, but just at a intersection of 2 noise road, all most all the rooms are on the face of the road where there are cars passed by every 5 sec. Talked with the reception, no room can change, the attitude is like 135€ for a standard room is like this, moreover they said there was expoisition, not possible to find another room somewhere else, It make you feel bad that 135€ per night you are lucky, even if they know the room is not able for sleep. what ever the price and room, a hotel room is for the man to have good rest in the night, if this fonction can not be garrenti, why we dont sleep in the street or in the car. and the old forniture, couloire and the servise are far from a 4 stars.
The room and the resturante
The layout and space available in the family room was excellent. The bathroom and shower were extremely clean.
The bar and the bowing alley ! The otel has a free schuttle bus to Mivie Park, but we didn't realise it would be better to bok in advance. On our first day we had to wait until 11:30 for the first free seats.
free shuttle, assistance and breakfast Old furnitures
room conditions, parking facilities, brekfast, location no
The family room was very spacious and even had a small seperate room for our kids. The beds were comfortable with great, fluffy duvets. The bathroom was spacious with a large double sink. The breakfast was delicious with a large selection to choose from.
the hotel has a good location and the staff is very friendly and helpful. the buffet breakfast is really delicious. the room was spacious, but the fortuniture a little old fashioned.
Very helpful and friendly staff comfortable rooms. Very noisy in the early hours think must be night club near. also thought the breakfast was expensive
the staffs was effective.
Desing and quality were really excellent. The room was confortable and a very good price/quality rapport. Very close to teh city center.
room space, cleaness, location, good breakfast buffet a bit old style but ok
Very central and nearby to location of seminar.
All was exelent. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone.
The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The hotel is very nice, inside and out.
Located conveniently near railway station and city center. Shopping street is just across the corner. Very clean room.
excellent and comfortable hotel They did not anounce in advance that their top restaurant was closed for holiday reasons.Only their brasserie:" In der Remise "was open.
The garden and the silence Hotel rooms are not according to my expectations
The service was excellent, everything you might need or want catered for and the staff were not 'in your face' but making you feel very much at home. Any little problems were resolved quickly and without fuss. The food was wonderful and again, any requests were fulfilled quickly and with no trouble. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Most definitely hotel to return to, especially to celebrate special occassions. There is a babysitting service available (extra cost) but unfortunately we were not aware of this in advance otherwise we would have taken our little one too.
Nice old-fashioned castle with excellent restaurant At this level of room prices the continental breakfast with additional billing for all extras is petty
they offered a wide range of choises for breakfast
the Shower and beds
Location and style of room.
Excellent rooms, very well laid out. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful.
modern and comfortable price of breakfast
Location to the areana and shopping center were perfect - only a 10-15min walk. Lobby was smeled like smoke in the evening, and lingered to the breakfast room in the morning.
Friendly staff, a very nice breakfast buffet, by car 3 minutes away from CentrO and 25 minutes away from Moviepark Germany.The hotel itself lies in a kind of boring area, a buisnesspark
I was very impressed with the quality of the hotel, the helpfullness of the staff, the location, and most of all the price. Great experience!!
free wlan internet (unfortunately it did not work properly)
The hotel seemed to be quite new. Both bed room and bath room were very modern. It's close to Centro. Though we didn't have a breakfast, it looked good. My credit card had a problem but Booking.com didn't alert when I booked. The hotel couldn't charge in advance thus I was almost charged quite expensive normal price. It would be nice if the system tells me that credit card is not valid when I booked.
additional pay for parking; payment for parking only possible with cash
Noisy street right in front of the hotel.
Verry noisy room
Ideally located to access city and businesses in the area, parking the superior room did not have bathrobe nor slippers, I was given a single room in spite of having booked a double room. As a result there was only one duvet and felt cold during the night.
Buffet breakfast was excellent, much better than some more expensive hotels I have stayed in. Rooms were clean. Overall a good experience.
friendly staff, great breakfast, spacious rooms, excellent beds traffic noise when opening windows
Cleanliness of the room, design, comfortable beds, convenient location, good breakfast Staff checking the mini-bar when the guests are in the room
very smart and efficient staff and a beautiful modern hotel and excellent breakfast buffet
Helpfulness of staff My colleagues and I all had front rooms overlooking the main road and found the traffic noise very very disturbing all night
Friendly staff and nice, spacious rooms with all amenities. Just a couple of minutes away from Limbecker shopping center. How to drive to the hotel parking is somewhat of a puzzle the first time.
cleanliness and helpfulness of staff
The hotel is nice. Good location and wonderful breakfast. There was a problem with one of the receptionist during the check-in. One of the guests did not come and the reservation of the room (double) was made under his name. The receptionist did not want to give us the room even if we had already paid for it and the other guest was present. They made us waiting until another receptionist came and solved the problem.
Location in the center of Essen and own car parking. Expensive breakfast for 17 euro per person. Within room 201 you can hear cars entering the car park underneath the hotel while lying in bed. Can be disturbing when you try to sleep.
Staff are well trained and frindly Food at the restaurant is limited to few dishes
Friendly staff, good food
The hotel is exactly next to the shopping center and Limbecker Platz. The parking of the hotel is very convenient. Hotel staff was very friendly. We had a very large room which was very convenient. The shower leaked very much so that you had to use almost all towels for drying up the floor. It is a good hotel and up to the standard of what you can expect of Holiday Inn, but it is definitely not a luxurious design hotel (by the way, that was not how it was promoted, but would have been a nice surprise.)
efficient staff the evening restaurant atmosphere, a bit boring and dull
Expensive, especially with breakfast at extra cost. Curtains should have been repaced as they were worn in places.
There is no gym
Very good, clean and quiet place for the night, and not far away from Duesseldorf, where the fair K2007 was held at. hotel parking.
spacious room Tv is not big enough, carpet is a little old, should offer different type of pillows
Proximity to train station Unfortunately the promximity to the train station which had a lot of undesirables arount it in the evening.
Great Location, I was attending a fair at Dusseldorf and this provided an excellent base to attend the fair. Very close to the station. Also close to the walking street with plenty of restaurants and shops close by. Would suggest that keep a water kettle in every room. Thats standard now days.
Excellent location, close to the train station/metro, shopping, cafes/restaurants. Good breakfast. Clean. Friendly staff.
Limited hotel car parking area.
Excellent location. The room has all the facilities as expected. Breakfast is excluded.
central location On the website, it said there was free internet, which turned out not to be true. After i pointed this out, they changed the web information. Otherwise
Staff were efficient and welcoming. Breakfast was excellent. Rooms were light, spacious and airy. Beds were comfortable we were not allowed to use the breakfast area to play games. As a hotel accommodating people during the world's largest games expo this was a serious problem and led to many people shunning the hotel in the evenings to go to (e.g.) the Ibis down the road which did allow this. My room was not cleaned at all one day, despite a 'please make up this room' notice left on door handle.
comfortable bed, close to shopping area and main train station wi fi reception in upper floor was too weak to make a connection, 15 EUR charge for breakfast, per day
Closeness of Main railway statio, center of the city, very nice and friendly staff, clean and comfort room. All in all very good
not very good service at the restaurant, refused to serve us at 9.30 while it was supposed to be open till 10.00
