Not the best price/quality
+ Convenient location + Decent breakfast options with lots of fresh fruit + Friendly staff - A bit run down, in need of maintenance - Shower screen placed very ineffectively - Cushions way too thin, no extras available - Not the best matrasses

4/10 Fair

Breakfast was decent. However, bare amenities, shower curtain that had mold, room safe that didn't work and scuffed, chipped walls made this a barely acceptable property.

Awful option for the price we paid
Please listen to the other reviews!! Do not pay more than $60 per night, we paid wayy too much. We mistakenly thought 3 stars meant something decent and booked it at a very high rate not realizing this was not standard pricing but gouging during a conference taking place in Messe Essen. Our room was on the 5th floor with a city view. The bathroom has not been updated since the 70s and the shower curtain was filthy and didn't drain well. The room not well insulated and quite noisy. The elevator was poorly functional. They only gave us one room key which was not convenient either. It is conveniently located near a U Bahn stop. I do not know why this hotel is listed on

Stay here if you do not find other hotel in Essen
Smelling room. Shower curtain a feet longer, full of dirt. Lift door noise was like horror movie show. Entrance was like entering an old apartment building. This hotel is okay only for short stay if you find no other place to live in. The single room was very small, like student hostel rooms. I believe NOVUM may take away the hotel chain name. Star rating can be two star, but from cleanness single star is enough. At least hotel could make the rating higher, but seems the hotel staff themselves were not knowing how to welcome the customers. Seems they did not smile in decades. The owner of hotel should visit the property before it is too late.

Mein Kollege fand es furchtbar schmutz, es glich einem Puff, benutzte Kondome unter dem Bett, einfach furchtbar - nie wieder!!

They did a "Bait n Switch" did a "bait and switch." I ordered the large room like the photo in my confirmation and they switched me to a small room the size of a jail cell. Don't use
