Schlosshotel Hugenpoet, Essen
Very Good8.0
It was a cool old palace. We loved walking the grounds and seeing the moat. There isn't much else around and there wasn't much to do at the hotel so we had to leave the place for fun. The restaurant was overpriced. It was a good experience but I don't think I'd go there again.

If you need some pampering ....
Beautiful and amazing. Everything was just impeccable: reception, room, room service, property, staff. This was my second time. Will not remain my last.

If your soul needs a rest ...
I hardly ever felt that welcome anywhere and I travel a lot. Everything was. beyond expectation. If I could, I would return there right now.

Nice hotel in pleasant surroundings
The hotel is very charming. While the building is an old castle the inside has been modernized completely. Bathrooms are superb- looks beautiful and high quality. The AC was not cooling well enough for comfort though. Hotel grounds include a garden for strolling and an excellent restaurant, which is so popular with the locals that reservations are recommended. Service staff was very nice .
