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.
