Hotel U, Essen
Functional and clean
This is absolutely a no-frills hotel but it's functional and clean at a very good price. We were looking for somewhere to sleep while visiting family who lived in the area and this hotel fulfilled the need. We didn't eat breakfast there but that would have been an extra cost. Shame there were no facilities for hot drinks in the evenings - just a vending machine would have been good. Ear plugs were included though as the rooms at the front were on a busy road. A single room was just big enough, though one of us was given a twin room despite being a single occupant, which was good. The bed felt very well used, which was surprising as we thought this was a reasonably new hotel. The receptionist was friendly enough and spoke English.You have to pay on arrival.I would use it again.

Great hotel.
Hotel is not too far away from downtown Duseldorf, and the room is great.

Lovely hotel for cooler days
The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. It was also very cheap for how nice it was. The downside to the stay was that my room was extremely hot and was above a busy road, so when the window was open it was very noisy. The hotel had thoughtfully left earplugs in the room to deal with this, and it wouldn't have been a problem on cooler day, but I found it hard to sleep.
