4/10 Fair

Not the best hotel in Essen! No gym...
Unfriendly front desk staff, the room was smaller than booked and had a smell, the complaint was not appreciated so the customer is not right at that hotel... Breakfast was nice and the restaurant staff were nice. Dont stay there if you need a gyn because it is not a real gym - a wooden building in the hotel back garden, and the 2 machines there dont work. There was no communication about ther out of service machines at check-in, 4 star hotel? I have never left a review for a hotel but i felt obliged to do so this time.
