Holiday Inn Express Essen - City Centre, Essen
Bed is uncomfortable. Room can get too hot. Desk light didn't work. Phone (for wake up calls) didn't work. But the staff was friendly. (Except for double charging for laundry). I think it needs to be better managed.

Nice hotel in a good location
Excellent choice for a game show at the Messe, as the Ubahn stop was only a block away. Mall was also a block away, so good location.
