    I am very satisfied with Reasonable price and a clean room. I would be more glad if I can watch English tv news channels, but I could not find them.

    Good hotel and location

    I've done a review for Motel One in Berlin Hbf so in terms of quality of decor etc.. it is as good as that one. Modern contempary design, comfy bed and flatscreen tv. The Essen Motel One is about a 5 minute walk from the main station and which is mainly pedestrianised route.

    Nice hotel, walking distance to train station

    Great hotel, and room. However, the staff is too eager to charge you the optional breakfast fee.

    Perfect location

    Just beware it's about a 10-15 minute walk from the train station but the location is great!! Awesome restaurant across the street and right in the middle of the city.

    Nice. No-frills. Affordable.

    Great staff! Very friendly and helpful. The simple room had a comfortable double bed. I didn't see a kettle, mugs, or fridge. Cable tv with channels in multiple languages. The bathroom was a little on the small size, but had everything one needs. Good shower. Soap and body wash provided, but they aren't great quality. I didn't have the breakfast in the morning, but it seemed a good price and quality. Overall - very positive. Perfect if you just need a place to lay your head. If you're looking for a luxury suite, keep looking. I will be staying here again in the future.

    Convenient and clean

    Located in the Füßgangerzone, Motel One Essen is clean, quiet, and a little hip. My room was standard European sized, but was clean, with a great shower, and was very quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, a great stay!

    Staff was great, very helpful and had a wonderful energy! The details around the hotel are great, the breakfast was amazing, my only complaint is the bed was stiff and the comforter was too small for the bed.

    Clean, modern, Nice!

    The hotel is modern and clean, with strong free Wi-Fi. It is centrally located in a pedestrianized area, near many nice restaurants and shops; close to the train station, underground, and parking. I only stayed one night. The front desk reception was efficient. The room was clean and comfortable; the bathroom was a little small, having only a shower stall, but good water pressure. I checked out early, so can't say anything about the breakfast/restaurant. Overall, I was very happy with my short stay and will stay at Motel One again in the future.

    English is the international language, not German

    Very good hotel. Shame all documents and information was sent in German. I requested a copy in English and never received it. How can international travellers accept conditions in a local language they don’t understand? Very annoying
