Perfect location just across the central station
Håkan, us1 night trip
Select Hotel Handelshof Essen, Essen
I'd totally stay again.
The place was great, the location PERFECT (90 food places, 2 malls, 1 train station, and a Catholic Cathedral for Sunday Mass all within 1-5 minute WALK!). The service was fine, plenty of English Speakers. It's a "German Hotel" so the rooms are tiny and the beds are pencil thin, but I slept better than I ever have in them, so no real complaints. 3 Pillows per bed of varying softness. The only real issue was that the area can be kinda loud at night depending on the room. If you're near the back where people walk the "outside mall" of sorts sometimes it gets crazy. Train nearby, but makes little to no noise, really. I'd absolutely stay here again if I ever return to Essen. The train station across the street and the food next door is reason enough. Oh... and like 3-5 banks to exchange money within that 5 minute walk too. Highly recommend.

Pros: New hotel, very good location, very clean. Cons: Some rooms *extremely* small; advertised as "air conditioning" but thermostat will not go below 23C (73-74F) and air very weak.

A Terrible Staying Experience
It was terrible. 1. Hotel should let me check in at 14:00PM, but I was checked in around 16:00PM because there were some problems from there clean staff. None of them said sorry and staff explained impatiently showing there's nothing they could do. 2. The front desktop is not very helpful while being asked the direction and Taxi information.

Perfect location and lovely hotel
I booked to stay for one night as we were visiting the Essen Christmas market. I have visited Essen a few times but last stayed in this hotel in 2008. I tried to stay in 2015 but the hotel, which used to be a Movenpick hotel, had closed down and squatters had moved in. The hotel opened again in November 2016. I chose the hotel because of the location and proximity to the market. You walk out of the hotel, turn right and you are in the main shopping street with the Christmas market and department store right next door. The train station is literally over the road also. The hotel is beautiful from the outside. It’s one of the reasons I wanted to stay there. Inside is lovely too. Reception staff were helpful and welcoming. Our room was ready, even though it was before check in time, which was great! We went up to our room on the second floor. Our room was lovely and spacious especially considering it was one of the less expensive rooms. It was clean and tidy and we were very happy with it. The breakfast was very yummy but I would have liked more choice for €14.90 each. We opted for late check out as our train was later on in the day. This was €20. I would highly recommend this hotel. We had a great nights sleep, a wonderful breakfast and a great stay!
